How Can Massage Therapy Help You
If you’ve never had massage therapy and enjoyed all the benefits it can offer, you probably believe that a good massage only offers relaxation, and not much else.
While a great massage is very relaxing, did you know that it also offers many other health benefits? Let’s take a look at the ways in which massage therapy can help you!
Relieves aches, pains and tension.
After exerting yourself physically in sport or after a period of stress, your body can feel achy, sore and tense. A massage can help to relieve this by helping to remove tight knots and relaxing the muscles that have taken strain during the exertion. In addition, as the tissue is massaged it can help to improve blood circulation which promotes healing and repair of the muscles.
Helps with nerve compression.
Massage therapy is an excellent way to release compressed nerves due to conditions like carpel tunnel syndrome and sciatica. We recommend informing your therapist about your condition and they can then concentrate on the areas that need attention the most.
Helps to decrease stress levels.
At London Lotus, we are a mobile massage service so we can come to you wherever you are in the greater London area. This is a great convenience to busy professionals who lead incredibly stressful and highly pressurized lives.
Even a 30 minute massage can greatly reduce the levels of stress and pressure you are feeling, and you can walk away with renewed energy and better able to cope with your busy life.
Improves your range of motion.
Modern life in the 21st century means that we spend a large part of our day sitting behind a screen and not moving as much as we should be. This can result in stiff muscles and our range of motion becoming more limited.
Unfortunately, many people simply do not have the luxury (or the time) to move around every half an hour. This is where massage services can really help as it can improve your range of motion in your arms and legs and also give you better flexibility.
The result is that you don’t feel quite as stiff or rigid in your limbs.
Can assist with the healing of ligament, muscle and tendon tears.
While physiotherapy is most often prescribed when you tear a muscle, tendon or ligament, did you know that massage therapy can also help to repair this?
If you have recently torn a muscle, tendon or ligament, we can highly recommend a series of massages as this can help you get back to normal as soon as possible.
In some cases, regular massages can also help to heal areas in the body that have scar tissue and many of our clients find that massage is a thoroughly enjoyable way to help them heal.
Gives you higher levels of vitality and energy.
There is nothing quite as relaxing as a deep tissue massage given by an expert masseuse. A good massage will leave you feeling incredibly relaxed, much more energetic and more able to take on anything life throws at you.
If you find that your energy levels are often low, you feel tired all the time and you don’t feel that you have the ability to perform optimally, regular massages can help to address these problems.
Even a weekly, 30 minute massage every week can greatly improve your energy levels and help you to concentrate fully on your work and personal life without feeling drained.
