Massage Benefits: Wellness You May Not Know About

Massage Benefits at The Lavanga Group

Sometimes the relaxing period of time after getting a massage makes us forget that a regular massage benefits our health!  The most noticed benefit is the relaxation that follows immediately – you will even be asked to sit up slowly and take a glass of water before you are on your way out.  Massages are a great way to reduce stress and bring back tranquility and peace to your life – even if it is only for a short time during the actual massage.  The more unnoticed massage benefits include help for the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Paresthesias and nerve pain
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain

Types of massage

Swedish massage is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

Deep massage is among the more common.  This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.

Sports massage is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

Trigger point massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.

You masseuse can identify which form of massage will be best suited for your needs.  As with all other forms of pain relief and exercise, be sure to check with your doctor before you start a new regimen.  Read more about massage benefits here.
