Massage treatments is one of the most ancient body treatments out there. Of course is has developed over time. It started from China and India but soon reached all over the world. On the cultures where the massage treatments were invented, there was an understanding of the body needs as well as the spiritual needs of our soul. Quickly, the benefits became clear, as we’ve learned more and more about the medical benefits of those treatments, both to our body and mind. Let’s focus on the main health benefits of massage treatments.
A professional massage treatment significantly improves our blood flow. Meaning, it allows our body to operate better, by enjoying an oxygen supply that reach properly to all of its systems. Including to or skin that needs the oxygen in order to rejuvenate itself and in order to stimulate collagen production.
Another essential part of our body that enjoys the improved blood flow as a result of the massage treatment, is our heart. When the heart works better the blood flow is better and vice versa. And when our heart works better, we have more strength, and not only that, but we also feel stronger and better too. Why is that? Because the blood flows to our brains, which effects our mood and our sense of capability.
By applying pressure on the right pressure areas of our body, the masseur allows our muscles to get the relief it needs. Especially if we have strained muscles, we should feel that relief as the treatment goes on. It may be a little hurtful at the beginning, as the masseur pushes right against the sore muscle, but what they actually do, is to warm up the muscle, so it would be able to release.
So, the massage treatments works its magic upon our body, but what about our mind? Well, as the body gets its relief slowly we get calmer and calmer, allowing our minds to drift away, while releasing our stress, worries and troubles behind. On the process of becoming familiar with the masseur we also learn to trust them as we give in to the process of calming both our body and mind.
