Having a good quality massage from a fully trained massage therapist has many health benefits, both physical and mental. Doctors often recommend massage therapy as a way to treat certain types of physical conditions such as chronic back pain and many medical professionals also support the use of massage to treat and eliminate mental health issues such as anxiety.
Stress increases the risk of long-term health issues including heart problems and diabetes, as well as having a significant impact on your mental health. It can also cause high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia and a long list of other negative effects.
Due to the COVID-19 health pandemic, many people have had increased levels of stress and there has been less availability of traditional support channels throughout the pandemic. For example, visits to the GP and referrals to the NHS support services for mental health have been restricted due to lockdowns.
There are many different types of massages and each one has a specific type of purpose. For example, a sports massage is intended to help repair muscles after exertive exercise, or to help prepare muscles before an event where muscles will be under a lot of strain.
Many other massages are for the purpose of relaxing the person, helping to relieve stress through the application of different massage techniques. A very popular type of massage is a Swedish massage, which has a number of powerful healing and wellbeing benefits.
