Going to the spa for a massage may seem pampering treat, especially after a particularly stressful week, but did you know massage has a myriad of benefits to your health?
Body massage can be considered a type of therapy that can be used to relieve all sorts of common aches and pains which are common in our high-tech lives, where many of us are bent over our desks, typing away, or hunched over our smart devices.

Not only can massage therapy relieve physical pain, but it can also help alleviate stress and anxiety.
People who integrate regular massage into their lifestyles, not only reap the benefits of unplugging for an hour or two, but they will see the benefits extend weeks beyond the appointment.

Here are the top five benefits to massage therapy:

1. Reduce Stress:
There’s no better way to unwind from a stressful week than by going for a relaxation massage. You can choose from a variety of therapies, but this basic massage will reach every part of your body from your head to your toes. Often your massage room will have a tranquil waterfall or natural earth-sound, a soothing scent, and calming surroundings. Be sure to ask for your massage table to be heated for added comfort, if you like your body to stay warm during your session.

2. Improve Circulation:
A good massage will relax all your muscles and loosen them which will allow increased blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This can have several positive effects on the rest of your body, including bringing fresh oxygen to areas in your body that are injured or need repair.

3. Reduce Pain:
Along with increased circulation, getting a massage is great for dealing with lower back pain and other areas that may be troubling you. Be sure to tell your therapist about any specific aches or pains before your session so they are aware and well-equip to help the problem area. Massage is also a great way to reduce pain from post-surgery and post-injury swelling.

4. Improve your Mood and Sleep
Did you know a good massage can help to release endorphins in your body and make you feel happier? And, being more relaxed than when you first went into your appointment will, believe it or not, help you feel more relaxed and therefore make you sleep better. You should wake up feeling refreshed, with less fatigue and ready to take on the world again.

5. Reduce Anxiety
Along with reducing stress, massage therapy can also reduce your anxiety. The cool, calming atmosphere will force you to put your phone on silent and melt away in total and complete relaxation.

Having gone through this list, can a massage help you in anyway? What areas of your overall health and wellness would you like to see an improvement?
