Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a new study finding that a simple massage can deliver both immediate and long-term health benefits, including lower blood pressure, cold prevention, and younger-looking skin.
As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/general-health-2/the-one-relaxing-thing-to-help-many-health-problems) notes, massage therapists at a University of Alabama rehabilitation center say that massage delivers health benefits both immediately and over the long term. While many can agree that it feels great to get a massage, there are clinical benefits involved, too. Right off the bat, one can experience reduced tightness in the muscles, improved blood flow and breathing, and relief from anxiety and stress.
As the article “The One Relaxing Thing to Help Many Health Problems” reports, in the long term, massage therapy can improve a person’s range of motion, strengthen the immune system, and lead to an improved sense of well-being. It is also a superior way to combat stress, which is a major hidden cause of illness.
The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article explains that there are several different style of massages that can specifically provide many different health benefits. “Swedish” massages are great for stress relief; “deep-tissue” massages are ideal for any deeper aches and pains. The final two main massages are “neuromuscular” and “trigger point therapy,” although there are many others, including Thai massage.
Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin concludes by noting that, to see the health benefits of massage therapy, the frequency that a person should get a massage can vary. If a person has no physical issues and is just looking to relax, they could go once every couple of months. If they have particular health problems that massage helps, they can seek massage as often as needed. If a person has a specific need, they should try getting a massage once a week for a predetermined period of time to work through that health issue.
