The Benefits of Massage – Even Self Massage

Enjoyed this article about the benefits of massage on a variety of conditions.

Because of edicts by the Advertising Standards Authority, masseurs and other therapists are not allowed to make claims about improvements for many specific conditions so we will let this article and its supporting studies do the talking.

The author talks about a study which demonstrated the game changing effects of Swedish Massage. This technique decreased levels of the stress hormones cortisol and arginine vasopressin. So, in addition to reducing stress, pain and muscle tension – often viewed as “shorter term” effects of massage, the chemical changes triggered by this treatment take it to another level.

Dulcie Gray also talks about the effects of massage on Fibromyalgia, dementia, headaches and migraines. So it’s worth checking up the data from the various studies to make your own decision.

For many of our clients, they know the benefits of having a regular massage.
