WebMD reports that about a quarter of all Americans have had massage treatments in the past year—after all, who doesn’t want some well-deserved relaxation therapy? Studies show that relaxation is not the only benefit to massages, as clients experience legitimate and lasting health benefits long after the treatment ends!
Massages have been scientifically proven to reduce depression and anxiety in patients of all ages. During a massage, the trained touch of the masseuse causes certain nerves to respond, allowing patients to lessen tension and worry. After a massage, the mind is as calmed and relaxed as the muscles.
Additionally, massages can help aid chronic pain, especially in the lower back. With reduced pain, clients can increase their daily activity and carry out normal tasks without the aching of sore muscles. At Skin Care Institute, massages increase circulation to the muscles as well for healthier muscles with less strain.
