We all know that massage is great for relaxation and for helping with back and waist pain, but did you know that massage therapy is also good for the health of your heart?
Various studies have shown that when you have a massage, it stimulates your nerve endings, which helps to release endorphins (feel good hormones), improves circulation and inhibits hormones that cause stress, namely cortisol and adrenaline. With the improved circulation blood pressure drops as well and aids the heart rate to slow down.
With improved circulation from the massage strokes, the body’s flow of oxygen in the blood is enhanced, and also calms the nerves to further reduce stress and tension. When you maintain a healthy heart rate, you reduce your chances of developing a heart attack. For all these reasons regular massage sessions can help maintain good cardiac health.
We all keep our cell phones charged, and vehicles serviced regularly to keep them in tune to get full use of them. Why shouldn’t we do the same with our bodies? One of the most pleasant ways to attain good health and well-being is by having regular massages.
