Major Benefits Await You At Massage Therapy

By Mari Black

When you envision individuals receiving massages, what do you see? Is it hard working people enjoying a vacation, treating themselves to some pampering that is very well deserved? Or is it a bunch of rich people who basically go through life getting pampered?

Now take it out of the realm of simply being pampered. Think of it in terms of massage therapy. What comes to mind? You probably are thinking of massage helping an injury to heal faster or taking away some of the pain. The fact is, that is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the incredible and fascinating benefits of massage therapy

Here is a list of some of the ailments and situations that therapeutic massage has been proven to help with; depression, anxiety, self worth & emotional issues, better test scores, vastly improved sleep, reduction in blood pressure, sports & other injuries, stress reduction, anorexia nervosa, vitality and energy, helping diabetics adhering to their program, helping patients endure cancer treatments, migraine headaches, osteoporosis, circulation, positive mental outlook, as well as pregnancy & the labor of child birth.

There is one particularly famous hospital study centered around premature babies. When infants were born, preterm, they alternated to place them in one of two groups; the group that got daily massages and the group that had no treatment other than normal. By the end of this lengthy study, the data was tallied and it was discovered that the babies that received the massages weighed 47 percent more than the babies in the non massaged group.

Possibly even more astounding, they were able to go home an average of six weeks earlier than the control group, that did not receive the massages. This was well beyond the most optimistic expectations of the researchers. A ten thousand dollar savings was reflected in each baby that got to go home early.

There are very few activities that can relieve stress as much as a professional massage. Strong levels of chronic stress can induce all manner of disease if it goes on for a long enough period of time. It decimates the human body’s natural immune system and then diseases that were latent, but previously unable to manifest, may soon start to develop.

This can explain the many anecdotal reversals and spontaneous remissions of many major and minor diseases for so many persons who started adhering to a program that included regular therapeutic massages. The massive reduction of stress, made way for the immune system to return to normal functioning, and that brought about the natural order of the body, the state called, health. How can Massage Therapy be of service to you?
