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.

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.
