We have already spoken about relaxation, being one of the massage benefits. Another often expressed benefit expressed by clients is that they SLEEP BETTER.
It has been well established that if you do not have a good night’s uninterrupted sleep or do not sleep enough for longer periods of time it may have quite dramatic effects on your mental, emotional and physical health. Healthy sleep allows the body and mind to finish processing what has gone on under the day and also helps with healing on a cellular level.
It is well documented that professional massage has an effect on the body and helps it to fall asleep faster and also allows you to sleep longer. How can this be possible? Well the massage creates a deep relaxation and boosts the serotonin levels. This has a positive effect on your mind and puts you in a more relaxed and calm state and releases melatonin. As the massage induces you into another relaxed state, and helps you distance yourself from your worries or pain that you are used to feeling, sleep may come quicker.
If you are interested in this benefit, come in for a professional massage.
