Benefits of Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage in Magda Clinic

A remedial massage is an amazing experience. It stimulates the nervous system; wakes up muscles, organs, and glands; moves blood and lymph fluid, and gets multitudes of cells to produce and release chemicals and hormones. 

In other words, a massage isn’t just a way to relax; it’s also a way to rejuvenate your body and mind!

Massages aren’t a luxury, they are a necessity!

Remedial Massage benefits include:

1. Lowers Stress

When you have stress, you have tension in your muscles. There are many reasons that people experience stress, and it can be tough to deal with. If left untreated, stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and even heart disease.

Relaxation massages can help to relieve the stress that you have by giving your muscles a soothing, relaxing sensation. The beauty of massage is that it’s a surprisingly affordable treatment that can help millions of people. While it’s true that we need more research to figure out exactly how much massage therapy reduces stress hormones like cortisol, there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that massage therapy can help lower stress and encourage relaxation.

I am happy to help you relax with a relaxation massage, so contact Magda Clinic for your appointment today!

2. Boosts Immune System

In a quest to strengthen their immune systems, many people have opted to incorporate massage therapy as a form of treatment. In doing so, they increase the activity level of natural killer cells, which fight off viruses and help boost the body’s immune system.

A study conducted by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine showed that people who received massages were up to three times as likely to fight off the virus that causes the common cold.

3. Sleep Better

There is a wide range of benefits when you go for a remedial massage. It not only helps you relax, but it also makes you more comfortable when sleeping. It’s also helpful for those who have trouble falling asleep and are suffering from sleeping disorders. This is the reason why people doze off when having a massage.

Remedial massages also help infants sleep more – in fact, a massage by a trained professional can reduce crying time by over 40%! The University of Warwick also found that infants who had been massaged as babies cried less, were less stressed, and showed increased brain activity. 

4. Relieves Tension Headache

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. People who have tension headaches are more likely to have migraines.

A good way to treat headaches is to have a massage. Massage therapy brings about a sense of being relaxed and is commonly used by athletes and other people who have physically demanding jobs.

As I work out your knots and soreness and help you release endorphins into your system, you can begin to feel relaxed and free of pain and tension.

5. Reduces Muscle Soreness and Strain

If you’ve ever had sore muscles after a hard workout, then you know how hard it can be to get them to feel better. But sports massage is a great way to get blood flow to an area that’s inflamed and sore.

When you’re being massaged, the therapist makes sure that force is applied to the spot, and doesn’t just tap. Tapping the spot will cause the muscles to contract and make the inflammation worse.

Deep tissue massage uses intense pressure to relieve painful knots in your muscles and bring blood flow to the area. This will relieve tightness in your muscles and can even help you relax!

6. Manages Joint Pain

There are many factors that can contribute to joint pain. The most common causes are injury, ageing, obesity, and repetitive use. Remedial massage has been found to be an effective treatment for joint pain, and the best part is that it can help a person maintain a high quality of life despite the pain.

I offer a range of treatments that can help you feel better. These include remedial massage, hot stone massage, cupping, and dry needling to provide extra comfort during recovery.

7. Improves Breathing

It’s no wonder that our breathing becomes restricted when we’re stressed since so much tension accumulates in the shoulder, chest, and neck muscles.

Unrestricted breathing is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress, and your first breath on the massage table may become a sigh of relief.

In addition to the diaphragm, there are other muscles in your ribs, chest, and neck that also assist with breathing. By taking deep breaths throughout the massage, you will not only be able to relax but also improve your overall respiratory function.

8. Improves Circulation during Pregnancy

Getting a massage during pregnancy can improve circulation, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Pregnancy massage has been shown to improve other problems that many pregnant women experience, such as constipation, fatigue, back pain, and muscle pain. When choosing a massage therapist, it’s important to find someone who has experience working with pregnant women.

Magda Clinic has Magda, the clinic owner and remedial massage therapist who specialises in working with pregnant clients and has over 7 years and 8000 hours of massage experience.

9. Improves Heart Health

What your heart really needs is a massage. A regular full-body massage is the surest way to improve circulation and enhance cardiovascular health. The application of massage increases your venous return, which, in turn, increases blood flow and delivery of oxygen to all your organs. Your entire cardiovascular system relaxes, and circulation throughout your body improves.

10. Benefits Babies

If you are a parent and wondering how to keep your baby healthy and happy, regular massages can be a great option!

A study was carried out by scientists at the University of Alberta. They found that babies who received regular massages had social behaviour improvements, better motor skills, improved sleep, and reduced levels of crying. This doesn’t just make the baby feel better but helps to relieve the stress of the parent.

Do it for the health of your baby! We’re here to help!
