Massage for Good Health

Whether the stress of everyday life or something requiring more stronger intervention, Edwina Cattanach discovers massage plays a vital role for when the going gets tough.

If you or someone you know is dealing with depression, simply getting out of bed can seem insurmountable. With one of the most isolating feelings of depression being loneliness, which can lead to disengaging from friends and society, the human touch is often lost or minimised. The good news? Oxytocin, known as the ‛love‛ or ‛cuddle‛ hormone because it is released when people snuggle up or bond socially, is also released through non-sexual touch, which includes massage.

There are many mental health benefits of massage as it can help to reduce the build-up of stress, giving your body the chance to fight off anxiety. Perhaps its concentration you are having difficulty with? That feeling when your shoulders are up by your ears, tense and taut; massage will help improve the blood flow to your brain, releasing tension and letting those shoulders relax! No wonder a little time out for you, on a massage table is beneficial for mental health.

One of the primary benefits massages provides is helping to increase circulation which can impact us both mentally and physically. Through massage your blood will circulate better, leading to that feeling of freshness and clarity that you thought you could only find at the bottom of a cup of coffee. Note here, I am not advocating to skip coffee, if it makes you happy…maybe just have both!

So here we are: massage is not just about aches and pains, those who receive massage therapy regularly are found to experience greater improvement in their psychological and mental health. There are many holistic treatments that provide benefit and each one of us needs to find the one best for ourselves and the issues we are facing. Having regular massage treatments are an efficient treatment for reducing depression and anxiety and deserves serious consideration.

David from Magic Massage has been providing massage services for seven years, with clients often seeking ongoing support to stay on top of recurring issues for various concerns.

“It’s always better to build a maintenance program to ensure clients are at optimum health rather than waiting until they are broken and in desperate need for a quick fix,” David explained. “Massage is a powerful tool which can easily fit into a treatment plan for many mental and physical health issues and has a profound effect on mood and anxiety reduction.”

With so many massage techniques available, it is important to know which one is right for you. Spend time with your massage practitioner explaining your concerns and work on a treatment plan that suits.

Give yourself permission to take time out for yourself in a calm environment, help decrease tension and give yourself, your mind and body a helping hand.
