Benefits of Remedial Massage
Good massage techniques are a wonderful way of releasing trigger points, stretching and elongating muscles and breaking down adhesions. Remedial Massage therapy focuses on areas that are stiff, injured or just plain sore. By increasing the blood flow to the tissues and releasing the tension, massage not only helps alleviate the pain, but can also help eliminate toxins.
When you are given a chance to relax and de-stress through remedial massage treatments, your levels of mental clarity and alertness increase.
The importance of relaxation and well-being can’t be underestimated and one of the most noted effects of remedial massage is a greater feeling of calm and relaxation. It reduces both emotional and physical stress, which is why it is often recommended in stress and anxiety treatment programs. The soothing, pampering benefits of remedial massage encourage the release of endorphins – the wonderful chemicals that give us the feel-good factor. Conversely, those nasty stress inducing hormones such as norepinephrine, adrenaline and cortisol are reduced.
Due to the decrease in stress hormones, your immune system has a chance to work more efficiently, without impairment. In addition, massage increases circulation and improves lymphatic drainage, which again provide a boost to the immune system’s effectiveness.
