Vietura Aesthetic Lifestyle - 5 Health Benefits of Massages

 

Massage Health Benefit #1: Manages depression and anxiety

Studies have shown that getting regular massages makes a significant impact on a person’s feeling of depression or anxiety. Massages affect the body’s biochemistry by lowering the levels of the stress hormone called cortisol. It also increases the levels of neurotransmitters that combat depression.  

Massage Health Benefit #2: Improves sleep

There’s a reason why people tend to fall asleep during massages. Massages increase delta waves, the brain waves linked with deep sleep.

Massage Health Benefit #3: Reduces PMS

If you have severe premenstrual syndrome or PMS, getting a massage can help alleviate symptoms like mood swings, water retention, and pain.

Massage Health Benefit #4: Strengthens the immune system

Massages also help defend the body against disease. Research shows that massages can significantly boost the cells and hormones that fight illness, while reducing levels of cortisol that keep these disease-fighting cells from functioning properly.

Massage Health Benefit #5:  Alleviates headaches

Headaches can also be relieved by massages the same way it relieves muscle pains. Getting regular massages has been shown to reduce the occurrences of migraines and their intensity.
