In recent years, massage has proven his benefits, to have anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and stress-reducing properties.
The benefits of massage
Massage therapy is the medicine of massage. There are many massage techniques for all ages and all types of problems. Studies have shown the virtues and beneficial effects of a massage for our body but also your head.
First of all, it’s all about touch. Our skin is made up of a large number of nerve endings, and during a massage, these endings will be stimulated and will spread waves of pleasure, because the body relaxes. Then it is the role of hormones to take over. During a massage session, we have the sensation of being pampered, of being taken care of. This sensation will have the effect of reducing the production of cortisol, which is the stress hormone, and therefore of releasing well-being hormones.
We know that body and mind are linked, which is why massage has many virtues. It helps fight stress, promotes sleep, soothes pain, reduces tension, improves blood circulation, releases energy, strengthens the immune system and brings well-being and pleasure.
To optimize the benefits of a message, we advise you to drink water and rest afterwards.
Who to get a massage from ?
In France, only masseur-physiotherapists are recognized by the government to perform massages because they need a perfect knowledge of gestures and anatomy. Be careful if you have health problems, don’t hesitate to tell your masseur beforehand because a badly executed massage does more harm than good !
Don’t rely too heavily on massage machines either. They are effective for certain problems, but like a professional, they do not target a specific pain. In addition, the skin-on-skin contact is beneficial to the mind, which releases pleasure hormones.
Massage has many benefits for your body and mind, but it won’t solve all your problems by itself ! To take advantage of the benefits of a massage as effectively as possible, you need to adopt a lifestyle that is as balanced as possible and that reflects you.
