Why Regular Massage is a Good Habit

January 4th, 2017 • Posted by Mary Nix • Permalink

Some people think of a massage as an occasional indulgence to experience while on vacation or perhaps to give themselves as a special treat now and then. However, massage is actually a good habit to incorporate as part of a healthy lifestyle. As many will testify, the cumulative effects of regular massage can offer quite a few benefits.

Those suffering from chronic pain from conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia often see a reduction in their need for pain medication as they continue a series of massage treatments. Other individuals lead very stressful lifestyles or are experiencing issues with depression or anxiety. Especially with stress or chronic anxiety, regular massage helps to dampen stress hormones and calm and nurture the nervous system. For those dealing with depression, massage helps to increase the level of serotonin, an important mood-elevating brain chemical. There are also studies which show that massage treatments can help those with ADHD or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Regular massage is shown to boost the immune system and it also lowers blood pressure, which are valuable health attributes for everyone. If you suffer from any type of chronic health condition, ask your physician if routine massage therapy is something that can help you manage your condition. For those who are otherwise healthy and active and simply want to do everything they can to maintain a healthy lifestyle, massage therapy will definitely help.
