Warm up, release stress and rebalance the body
As the weather starts to cool and the leaves start to change colour and fall to the ground, this is a good time of the year to prepare your body and mind for the coming winter season. Massage can do more than just relax you. Its healing qualities can help support your immune system, protecting you from winter colds as well as reducing symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). All of this makes Autumn a perfect time to renew your commitment to self-care.
Sleep better after a Massage
When you don’t get enough sleep at night, you get cranky. But did you also know that sleep plays a vital role in your overall health? When your body is overtired, its immune system is naturally affected, leading to what is commonly called feeling run down. This means that you’re more susceptible to common colds and flu and other ailments that seem to be drawn to the overtired. Thanks to the increase in serotonin from a massage, your body has an easier time producing melatonin, a hormone that regulates your sleep cycle. A massage can help you spend more time in the deeper stages of sleep responsible for restoring your body.
Massage can help boost Your Immunity
Massage helps to improve the immune system. A study published in the “Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine” found that massage therapy increased the presence of the body’s natural killer cells. These cells act as the immune system’s first line of defence, destroying cells responsible for tumours and viruses.
Decrease the winter blues
If you are looking to fend off the winter blues you may find relief by integrating massage therapy into your health maintenance routine. Something as easy as a massage can boost your mood and relieve anxious feelings. When you receive a massage, your body releases serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin is responsible for stabilizing your mood and balancing any excessive stimulating neurotransmitters that cause anxiety and stress. Dopamine, on the other hand, battles depression and helps you focus.
Massage helps blood circulation
Did you know that massage is a great way to boost your circulation? Low temperatures cause the blood vessels to constrict, decreasing blood circulation and increasing blood pressure. This can bring on many discomforts, aches, pains and arthritis. Regular massage enhances blood flow, naturally lowering blood pressure, increasing the body temperature and improving body function.
