Massage North Sydney

Everyone knows that massage feels good. It’s not just for pleasure though. The health benefits of massage go beyond relieving sore, stiff, and tired muscles.

What Are Some Great Reasons To Get A Massage?

Massage decreases levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, lowers blood pressure, and can lift the spirits too. Massage can have a beneficial effect on anxiety and depression. It can increase levels of the neurotransmitters, serotonin and dopamine, and they help alleviate depression. Furthermore, people that sit at a desk all day working could have more anxiety and depression because of their sedentary lifestyle, lack of sunlight, and exercise. The massage will relieve those sore muscles from sitting at the desk all day, and also help with the depression and anxiety that is sometimes attendant upon the overworked employee.

Massage can also lessen back pain, something eight out of ten people experience. A study in 2011 showed that people felt and functioned better with massage than without it. Benefits for back pain can be comparable to other treatments like medications, exercise, and acupuncture, according to the medical researchers. That’s a pretty strong statement in favour of back massage in sydney.

Massage can also promote healthy sleep. A number of studies have shown that there is a connection between massage and healthy sleep. It has to do with the effects of massage on delta waves, and these are the kind of waves that can lead to deep sleep.

Massage can also boost immune system function. Massage North Sydney helps a person’s disease-fighting white blood cells get increased. That’s a great reason to get massage around flu season. Consider the deep sleep benefits, and your immune system is doubly helped. Deep sleep also helps boost immune system function.
