New York, New York (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
Massage is something that individuals have relied upon for generations to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and achieve an overall higher level of wellbeing. While some individuals may feel as though indulging in a massage is just that—an indulgence—a new article from Voxxi enumerates the many ways in which massage can boost health. Jessica Tetreau, owner of Only the Best day spa, has been providing her clients with massage for years. Through her experience, she asserts that the claims of the article are accurate. Here, she reveals the benefits that massage can provide.
The two most common reasons that people get a massage are for pain relief and relaxation. Deep tissue and other therapeutic massage techniques can alleviate back pain and even, according the article, reduce “the need for narcotic pain relievers by as much as 36 percent.” Additionally, by allowing the muscles to finally relax, massage can create the feeling of having a weight lifted from the body.
But there are other, more targeted benefits that massage can produce. The article asserts that headache, cancer, blood pressure, the immune system, inflammation, and osteoarthritis can all be positively impacted by the use of massage. Because headaches often stem from tense muscles in the neck and shoulders, massage can reduce this tension and cure the headache. Likewise, the symptoms of cancer, including “pain, stiffness, swelling, fatigue, and nausea,” can be reduced by massage. The article notes that an enhancement in mood is also an important side effect of massage in cancer patients.
In terms of high blood pressure, massage is thought to improve this condition through the “stimulation of the action of the vagus nerve, which is a nerve that connects directly to the brain and is responsible for regulating blood pressure,” according to the article. The text also asserts that the immune system is boosted through the reduction of cortisol production and that inflammation is minimized when massage is used.
Jessica Tetreau is happy to see the benefits of massage so clearly explained, as she has shared this information with her clients for years. “I know that massage is something that can greatly impact the lives of individuals,” Tetreau states. “I have seen my clients achieve a higher degree of wellbeing through the use of massage, and I know that this ancient form of therapy is something that has withstood the test of time for a reason. Through massage, I know that I provide a great service to my clients in that I help them unlock a higher quality of life.”
Tetreau encourages anyone who has not had a massage to contact a licensed and qualified professional to learn more about this healing service.
