Trouble Sleeping? Try a Massage

So, what are the benefits of a good night's rest? It may seem like a silly question but catching the right amount of sleep every night may be more important than you think. A good night's sleep helps to repair your body, maintains a healthy heart, reduces the effects of stress, improves your memory, controls weight gain and decreases the risk of diabetes.

Think of the things that you do every day which you can't live without. We're talking about daily bodily regulated activities like eating, drinking and breathing. Sleeping falls into this category and is as important. Sleep plays a pivotal role in wellness, physical health, longevity and emotional stability. You know that feeling you have after a great night's sleep? Not only do you feel refreshed but your thoughts are clearer, allowing you to make important decisions that you are faced with throughout your busy day.

For many people, however, sleep is not that easy to come by. Everyday millions of people around the world have trouble closing their eyes and drifting off to sleep. Sleep deprivation and insomnia is not only annoying - everybody has had one of those tossing and turning nights, counting down the hours until sunrise and another full day of stumbling bleary-eyed through work - but chronic insomnia has many other debilitating effects. Not only does a lack of sleep cause calamities like car accidents, industrial disasters, medical and occupational problems but it can also lead to depressive states, anxiety and memory loss.

Remedies for Insomnia

The fact of the matter is that a large of the American population suffers from insomnia. So, where are these millions of Americans turning in order to get a good night's sleep? Approximately 10 million people in the U.S use prescription sleeping aids and although sleeping pills may do the trick for a time they are most certainly not a long term solution.

If you are suffering from insomnia and are searching for insomnia treatments and remedies then it is best look into alternative, natural treatments. Massage can be an extremely soothing and beneficial treatment for those suffering from chronic insomnia. This natural, external, stimulating treatment has had a significant impact on insomniacs and has been proven to be a highly effective insomnia remedy.

How Does Massage Assist in Treating Insomnia?

While massage can relieve pain and tension, a popular complaint amongst insomniacs, it can also promote relaxation which can assist in restoring the sleeping patterns of insomnia suffers. Unwinding, de-stressing and relaxing the body can encourage greater relaxation in the body's muscles and soft tissues, providing a more lucrative, peaceful platform for deeper, undisturbed sleep.

Massage assists in oxygenating the blood, relaxing the muscles and promoting health and wellbeing around the body. This can aid in healthier, deeper breathing and in boosting the immune system. In addition to the stimulating nature of the massage oils can also be used to stimulate relaxation and promote sleeping patterns. Lavender oil has long been noted as a fantastic insomnia remedy. This oil relieves pain, combats depressions and relaxes the nerves. Other beneficial oils include chamomile and rose.

More than half of the American population loses sleep as a result of anxiety and stress.
So next time you're laying awake at 2am in the morning, staring at your digital clock and wondering why you can't get to sleep while everyone else can, take comfort in the fact that you have more company than you think. However, if you'd like to increase your sleeping hours and combat chronic insomnia, consider natural remedies before turning to over-the-counter medication. Try a massage and promote relaxation and wellness around the body, and enjoy a healthy night's sleep.

The Advantages of Waxing Over Shaving

For many years there has been a great debate about whether it is better to wax or shave hair. Of course each method of hair removal offers advantages and disadvantages. However, if you really look closely at these two methods, it's easy to see why waxing is usually the better choice. Here are several advantages of waxing instead of shaving:

• It saves time. Probably the best thing about waxing is the fact that it saves a lot of time. You just go to the spa one time and get it done, and then you're set for a few weeks. This gives you a lot more time every morning to take care of other things that you need to handle.

• You don't have to deal with nicks, cuts, or razor burn. When you shave, you've got to be very careful not to cut or nick your skin. You could even find yourself with scars if you cut yourself shaving often enough. Waxing results in fewer nicks and cuts because you aren't running a razor across your skin every single day.

• There's no more embarrassing stubble. When you shave, the hair is cut off at the skin line. Depending on how quickly your hair grows, you could find yourself with stubble before the day is even through. Stubble not only looks unsightly, but it also results in abrasive skin. Even if you don't have to shave every day, missing a day when you should shave is quite embarrassing because you've got stubble. It's much better to wax so that you don't have stubble left behind.

• You don't have to deal with hair removal every single day. Waxing actually pulls hair out at the root, so you don't even need to think about hair removal all the time. Usually a wax lasts anywhere from two to six weeks, depending on how quickly your hair grows.

• Waxed skin tends to be smoother and less itchy, especially if you have it done at a spa. The wax used for hair removal contains moisturizers and other ingredients that are designed to nourish your skin. When you aren't dealing with stubble all the time and you're using quality products like those used at a spa, your skin will simply look and feel better.

• Often people who wax see their hair begin to grow more slowly and finely. This means that not only will you have to wax less and less often over time, but when your hair does grow back, it will be much finer than it was before. This means that when it's time for another wax, any hair you do have will be more difficult to see.

• It's better for skin that's prone to irritation, especially from shaving. Rashes and other skin irritations are very common with shaving. But quality waxes like what they use at a spa will not irritate your skin.

While some people say that waxing is painful, it's important to realize that if your wax is performed by a professional who really knows what she's doing; it's almost pain-free. This is why if you do decide to wax, you should definitely see a professional. An expert who works at a spa will make sure that the process is done correctly and safely so that you can reap all of the above benefits.

10 Important Massage Benefits You May Not Know About

Do you think having a massage is just about relaxation, pampering or relieving tight muscles? Yes massage is great for inducing a deep state of relaxation and providing some pampering 'me' time. And you know it is excellent for relieving tight, sore or cramped muscles and the associated pain that goes with it. But there are many other benefits and reasons for having a massage than you may not be aware of.

Because massage affects us on a mind, body and spirit level, it can release a cascade of beneficial effects on a physiological, chemical, emotional and mental level.

Here are 10 important massage benefits that you may not know about.
  • Easing pain medication dependence.
Due to the easing of sore and painful muscles and freeing up of joints, less medication may be required to keep you comfortable.
  • Enhancing immunity.
The Lymphatic System is part of our body's natural defense system and massage stimulates the efficient flow of lymph therefore enhancing our natural immunity.
  • Improving the condition of the body's largest organ-the skin.
Massage increases circulation to the skin cells, bringing more oxygen and nutrients and oils used can also feed and moisturize the skin.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
As a result of the sedating effect of massage the nerves are calmed and many of us are able to step back from our worried or anxious mind for a while and gain a more positive perspective.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue.
Scar tissue can be broken down thereby reducing restrictions and unsightly scars.
  • Reduce post surgery adhesions and swelling.
Internal adhesions can be freed and pooling of excess tissue fluids can be reduced by stimulating drainage.
  • Release of endorphins.
These are amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.
Regular treatments can also reduce the occurrence of migraines.
  • High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
By enhancing wellbeing and reducing anxiety, thus encouraging chemical and hormonal balance.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
Relaxation promotes ease of getting to sleep and clients often report a deeper, more restful sleep.

There are many other benefits not listed here so don't just think of massage as a guilty indulgence, but as a very enjoyable maintenance program for this amazing machine we call the body.

What Is a Deep Tissue Massage? | Deep Massage

Deep tissue massage is massage delivered into the muscles on a deeper layer. So typically, you want to prime the muscles before you get into that level of depth with Swedish massage strokes. Swedish massage is actually the basis for deep tissue massage, but deep tissue massage you're accessing down under the surface layer.

A lot of people think that deep tissue massage has to hurt, and that's not necessarily true. I actually believe that a good deep tissue massage is delivered in a way where you're focusing on the client's needs, checking in with them, and you're getting right there to that edge, that level of pain, but not crossing over that barrier.

So it can actually provide a lot of relief for any of those aches and pains, any knots that you might have, and just general different discomforts in the musculature.

So I find over the years that I've worked, a lot of people will request a sports massage, but in actuality what they really want is a deep tissue massage. Sports massage is typically something where you're prepping the body for a sports event, either before or after, or it can be injury treatment-related.

Deep tissue massage can also be injury-related, and is actually quite good for treating injuries, but it happens at a much slower pace than sports massage. So sports massage is typically something that's very rapid movement. In deep tissue massage, you go nice and slow and access the tissue very, very slowly so you can get in much deeper without pain.

So that's a little bit of a misconception that I wanted to cover for you.

What Are the Health Benefits? | Deep Massage

So the health benefits of deep tissue massage are many.

From the very beginning just getting your muscle tissue to have less knots and adhesions, getting the joints to have more motion. Actually by reducing some of that scar tissue in the muscles around the joints, you can actually get a lot more range of motion.

It assists in your posture, it assists in reducing all of those little aches and pains that we all have in different areas.

There are actually a lot of muscular conditions that can be treated through deep tissue massage. I’m not sure a lot of people know this, from things like carpal tunnel to thoracic outlet syndrome, to sciatica, to pseudo-sciatica, whiplash.

Deep tissue is incredible for treating you after you’ve been in an auto accident, and a lot of people don’t know that they can actually get treated with massage after they’ve been in an auto accident.

The list goes on forever. If you have some kind of a condition related to one of your muscles, or even sometimes, many of your joints are affected by the muscle around the area. It can commonly be treated with massage therapy.
