6 Benefits of Massage Therapy

1. Sitting work is no problem!

The vast majority of people today have some sort of problem with their posture. Most often these problems are pain in the back, neck and shoulders. People who work long hours at the table are the most vulnerable to these disorders. Pain can only be the beginning – weakening of the lower back muscles and glutes muscles due to prolonged sitting and pain in these areas can lead to more serious musculoskeletal disorders.

Massage has a unique effect on the human body, opposing the effects of sedentary lifestyles. Regular massage can be the key to a positive approach to work and, as a result, high productivity – this is not easy to achieve with constant back pain!

2. Relieves muscle pain.

Massage can help! It strengthens and improves blood circulation, which helps to cope with painful sensations. We all noticed when we hit a part of the body, our first reaction, we rub the place with our hand to take away the pain.

Massage works on the same principle, only it is much more effective, because it is done by a professional with extensive knowledge of human health. The results of research published in the journal

AnnalsofInternalMedicine indicate that massage is just as effective for treating chronic back pain as traditional therapies.

In addition, massage improves the baby’s sleep, reduces the frequency of crying and improves the baby’s mood – a study that has shown such results was conducted by scientists at the University of Warwick.
