Dive deep into the history and numerous benefits that massage therapy has to offer. Check out our smart technological solutions for massage treatment at your home.
Although massage therapy has only recently entered mainstream culture in the UK, its origins date back to 3000 BCE in Southeast Asia, where it was considered a sacred form of healing. There’s a long and fascinating history of how massages became a staple of alternative medicine and how it was developed and improved upon over the years.
From the discovery of reflexology in Egypt to the integration of oils and herbs in Greece, massage therapy has come a long way. Today, massage tools offer targeted treatments within the comfort of your home.
For instance, the MagiCure Neck Massager is a leading health technology product that combines far-infrared heating, circular traction, and low-frequency electric pulse to provide unmatched relief and comfort.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of massage therapy.
1. Lower Stress
The long-term emotional and physical toll that stress takes on your body can leave you feeling less than optimal. Massage therapy can relieve stress by helping ease tight muscles and tension within your body. This can help boost energy levels and enhance physical and emotional wellbeing.
2. Lower Blood Pressure
Regular physical activity and muscle movement in massage therapy can lower blood pressure. Consistency is key because results start showing up only after one to three months. If you stop exercising, you can expect the blood pressure to rise again.
3. Improved Circulation
Massage therapy can help loosen muscles and tendons in the body that allow better blood circulation in the body. Enhanced circulation allows oxygen to reach all parts of the body and enables toxins removal.
4. Relieves Headaches
During a massage, the body releases endorphins that act as natural painkillers. Not only do they help suppress pain, but they also act as mood boosters, helping you feel happier and less stressed. Both the factors contribute to lower frequency and intensity of headaches.
5. Improves Sleep
Studies show that massage therapy can enhance serotonin levels that naturally aid good sleep. Better sleep quality is linked directly to a higher quality of life.
6. Chronic Pain Relief
Massage therapy is commonly employed to help relieve chronic body pain. Estimates indicate that around 20 million adults in the UK live with chronic pain that can limit daily activities severely. Massage therapy is used to combat a variety of musculoskeletal ailments, including arthritis, occupational pain, fractures, and sarcopenia.
7. Improves Posture
Back, neck, and muscle pain is often caused by poor posture; massage therapy can help your back and neck get back into proper alignment. Massages help the body relax, loosen tense muscles, and help you regain greater flexibility and range of motion.
