You know how sometimes the hours and days can just drag by with so much to do that you can’t figure out how to even start on that massive list at work or at home? Scheduling a massage to break up the routine may give you the energy boost you need to help tackle life’s daily grind. Massage has many benefits for your health and wellness with one of the most immediately felt being a natural energy stimulator in your body through non-pharmacological means.
By helping to restore order to your lymph system, the part of your body responsible for circulating blood, removing toxins, waste buildup, and bacteria from your body, massage can be a great way to help you feel more energized and able to focus! Additionally, massage can also boost your immunity levels enabling you to feel less stress, pressure, and make you less vulnerable to sickness.
Here’s how it works: By applying pressure to the vessels that your lymph system uses to move toxins out of your body, massage enables these vessels to do their job and transport waste and bacteria allowing you to feel less lethargic or sluggish. The stimulation provided by massage enables your lymph system to work more efficiently and effectively, putting you on a path to health and wellness.
Other benefits of massage that can help boost energy are:
- Promote better sleep
- Reduce anxiety levels
- Lower production of stress hormone cortisol
- Calm your nervous system
- Boost production of serotonin and other endorphins
- Boost oxygen levels in your blood
Routine massage sessions are an excellent way to help balance your mind and body connection while offering a vast array of benefits.
