There’s no two ways about it: massages are fab. They’re the perfect way to chill after a long day, relax after a workout and generally get some hard-earned ‘me time’. But there’s more. There are heaps of health benefits to hitting the massage table, which means there’s always a good reason to treat someone…

1: Relieve stress

It releases serotonin and dopamine, which leads to that feeling of deep relaxation. So, if your client suffers from stress or anxiety long-term – or has simply had a tough day – holistic therapy could be the answer.

2: Reduce muscle tension

It helps to decrease tension in the muscles, boosting relaxation which, in turn improves flexibility and reduces pain caused by tight muscles. See here if interested in the top treatments for backs.

3: Improved sleep

Studies show that regular massage therapy is very effective at increasing our ability to slip into deep sleep, and is a useful way to help insomniacs restore their sleep patterns.

4: Soften the effects of dementia

This is a surprising yet lovely fact: dementia’s symptoms can be eased with massage. The human contact can be an effective way to soothe those suffering from the condition, offering a sense of connection and reassurance.

5: Ease symptoms of depression

A great option for those suffering from depression, massage helps to reduce the amount of cortisol in your body by up to 50%, as well as increasing levels of neurotransmitters that stabilise your mood.

6: Improves cardiovascular health

Taking time out on the massage table is known to reduce heart rate and improve circulation, keeping your heart health in check. It’s great to know there are so many benefits to share with a wide range of clients, helping them combat all sorts of ailments… and relaxing them, too.
