It’s no mystery that massage therapy has been used for years to help you relax. At Signature Male, we get it. You work hard, play hard and want to be able to unwind when it’s time. A cold beer can help, and so can massage therapy. Check out these five health benefits of massage therapy.
- Treat Aches and Pains from Too Much Sitting
A lot of guys spend eight-plus hours a day at the office or a lot of time traveling and sitting in a car or plane. Add up sitting time for eating at the table, watching TV, driving, and working, and you might spend 10 or more hours a day sitting. Massage therapy can help relieve tension in your neck, shoulders, and back from too much sitting.
- Improve Your Mood
You can tell when something is on your mind and it’s bothering you. Anxiety or depression, can have a major impact on your work life and personal life. Massage therapy can help. Studies show that massage therapy helps improve mood, promotes happiness, and reduces stress.
- Get Your Zzzs
Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep for best health. However, an estimated 30 percent of all adults don’t get enough sleep. If you want to get a better night’s sleep, massage therapy can help. Studies show massage therapy promotes relaxation that makes it easier for your mind and your body to rest and recharge when it’s time to sleep.
- Improve Your Health
You might not be thinking about cold and flu season right now, but it’s just around the corner. If you’re not a fan of getting sick (who is?), massage therapy can give your immune system a boost to help fight off germs and bacteria that can make you sick.
- Keep Headaches Away
The science of headaches still has a lot of unanswered questions. But there’s no question that a pounding headache can have an impact on your work, social life, and overall health. The good news: Research shows that massage therapy is an effective way to reduce pain associated with headaches.
