Massage is powerful; it has numerous health benefits to make you feel like a new person. Massage provides you with relief from diabetes, anxiety, heart ailments, nervous problems, and pain. InBalance massage in Orem improves the health of your skin, the functioning of your digestive system, helps with immunity, and massages really just feel good.
The many health benefits of massage have been known for ages and massage is a mainstay of Chinese and Indian medicine. The beauty of massage therapy is the nurturing and wellness it provides for all age groups from infants and children to adults and even the elderly. InBalance massage in Orem can help you schedule regular massages to keep your wellness on track.
According to The National Institute of Health, there are many benefits to regularly scheduled massages. Massage in Orem will help alleviate the concerns of:
Sitting all Day
“Sitting in an office chair all day causes pain and stiffness in the shoulders and neck,” says Aaron Tanason, a registered massage therapist. The discomfort of sitting in a chair all day shows up as pain and weakness in the lower back and gluteal. Massage can counteract the imbalances caused by sitting.
Massage helps control the level of sugar in the blood, especially for those with type 2 diabetes. Studies show that some people with diabetes who regularly received massages reported a drop in blood glucose of almost 20-40 mg/dl. This drop may be due to the decrease in stress and anxiety hormones.
Stress-related mental disorders plague many people and massage is a method of coping with stress. Massage in an Orem based-spa like InBalance reduces stress by allowing the entire body to go into deep relaxation. Massage stimulates natural detoxification and is ideal for overall stress reduction.
The nervous system is recharged by massage and returned to its normal functioning. Massage is perfect for taking away the tension that lies within your nerves.
Massage used as an alternative for pain medications is recommended by physicians and surgeons. Massage has been proven to ease pain after surgery. Massage increases the blood flow to sore and stiff joints and muscles and studies show that massage can change the way the brain senses pain. Stanford neuroscientist Robert Sapolsky says, “The short, sharp sensations of a good massage can temporarily make the brain forget about other aches.”
Increases Blood Circulation
Massage sessions help the blood distribute the right amounts of nutrients throughout your body. The natural healing power of your body increases substantially after a massage. Someone with poor circulation suffers from a variety of discomforts like cold hands and feet, fatigue and achiness. Massage facilitates circulation because the pressure created by the massage therapist move blood through the affected areas. Released pressure in a massage causes new blood to flow into affected areas.
Try a head massage to help improve the blood circulation in your scalp. Blood circulation nourishes your scalp and can boost hair growth. There are claims that regular scalp massage reduces gray hair.
Did you know that regular massage boosts your immunity? Massage therapy is effective in helping your body maintain a healthy immune system. As you receive a massage, you are building protective cells in the body and neutralizing infection-causing bacteria and viruses.
Helps Cancer Patients
In a study published in 2007 in the journal, Current Oncology, researchers state that massage helps reduce the symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, nausea, pain, and depression in cancer patients. Massage was the key factor in reducing some of the pain of chemotherapy and helped to improve the overall psychological wellbeing of cancer patients.
