Recover Quicker with Massage
Elements Massage Desert Ridge Oct 30, 2017
Whether you’ve recently undergone surgery, experienced an injury, or find yourself in the midst of high stress and anxiety, massage can empower you to recover quicker. Here’s how:
As a tool to enable the rejuvenation of your mind and body connection, massage is an excellent tool to combat stress and anxiety. By reducing the production of stress hormones, cortisol, and by boosting feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin, massage can reduce your blood pressure, lower your heart rate, encourage better sleep, and promote mental energy.
Massage boasts a variety of benefits for both your mind and body. To reduce recovery times after injury, or even just from the regular wear and tear of exercise, the application of pressure and movement in massage addresses the small tears in muscle fibers that result in soreness and inflammation. By boosting circulation, massage promotes a quicker recovery. Additionally, massage can help remove lactic acid buildup and oxygen and nutrients to much needed areas.
Similar to after an injury or when recovering from strenuous exercise, massage can help your muscles to stay supple with proper range of motion. This can yield better flexibility and reduce delayed healing times when getting you back to the activities that you love.
Massage is a powerful tool for times of great need, like the ones listed above, or for the more regular grind of normal life. If you are in need of a little extra TLC, book a session with our talented team today.
