Massages are mostly only considered a ‘luxury’ and a ‘nice to have service’ however what people don’t know is that having a massage and taking time for yourself had several other benefits as well.
What kind of benefits? I’m glad you asked!
1. Having a massage can reduce anxiety long-ish term.
If, like many of us you suffer from anxiety then you’ll be glad to know that having a massage has shown signs of reducing anxiety during the massage and afterwards. This may seem obvious but having your brain in a more relaxed state can help you concentrate/make you more productive.
2. It can soothe strains and injuries.
Maybe you go to the gym several times a week and are suffering from a sore muscle spell. Sports massages are excellent at giving your body an MOT. When we exercise our muscles release lactic acid, over time this can build up and cause pain/discomfort.
Having a sports massage removes the lactic acid which can improve your performance and stop pain during training.
3. It can send those headaches packing!
Headaches can be irritating but when they stay with us all day it can affect our performance.
Massages can eliminate headaches as massaging moves blood around the body, which can eliminate headaches. Nifty right?
4. It can send you to sleep … ZZZ
This may seem very obvious however it’s been shown that people who suffer from insomnia can drift off to sleep easier when having regular massages.

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection.
