While many people think of massage as a special indulgence or a treat, at LHAA we truly believe that massage plays an important role in your overall health and wellness. A recent article published in the Huffington Post titled “It’s True: Massages Really Are Good For You” cites a study to back up this belief.
The study is published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and provides evidence to support the commonly held belief that massage is valuable for people who exercise or who have injuries. But what it also reveals is that massage provides similar benefits to people who haven’t exercised.
The health benefits of massage related to circulation and blood flow can apply to most people who receive massage, regardless of their exercise regiment. Massage can help stimulate overall blood flow for days after the treatment.
From the article:
“The results of this study contribute to a better understanding of how massage therapy promotes faster recovery from EMI and may have broader implications for the clinical use of massage therapy, especially in the context of endothelial dysfunction,” researchers wrote in the study.
