Quality sleep is a huge part of maintaining overall health. Sleep is important for not only your body, but is actually most important for resting your brain. This is why when you’re tired it’s more difficult to think but still fairly easy to walk. Insufficient sleep can lead to serious long-term health issues, like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression. All of these are issues that many Americans struggle with, and it’s also estimated that around seventy million Americans experience problems with sleep.
Research has shown that massage therapy can improve sleep in individuals across age groups, from infants to the elderly. It has also been shown that therapeutic massage can help individuals suffering from physical pain sleep better. By reducing discomfort and stress, it is easier to fall asleep at night. However, people suffering from psychiatric disorders like depression, insomnia, or dyssomnia also reported improvements in sleep with therapeutic massage.
Of course, you don’t need to be suffering from serious health complications in order to enjoy the sleeping benefits that come from a therapeutic massage. Everyone could use a better night’s sleep, so book an appointment with a massage therapist at Elements Massage Gilbert today in order to discover what you’re missing out on.
