Everyone should consider getting a therapeutic massage at some point. Researchers have found that there are several health benefits that can be reaped from getting a massage. Below are some of those benefits.

Relief from pain

Millions of people suffer from chronic pain. Many of them turn to painkillers to relieve their pain, but therapeutic massage can help alleviate pain naturally. In fact, studies have shown that nearly 73 percent of people experience pain relief after getting a massage.

Promotes faster healing

A therapeutic massage can also help expedite the healing process. Massage helps increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. It also has been shown to boost the immune system.

Lower blood pressure

High blood pressure is a health condition that affects roughly one-third of the America population. If high blood pressure is left untreated, it can lead to stroke, heart attack and blindness. There was a study done at the University of North Carolina that showed just 10 minutes of massage can help lower blood pressure.

Reduces inflammation

Inflammation is the body’s response to a harmful stimulus. Inflammation plays an important role in helping the body fight infections. However, when this problem becomes chronic, it can lead to other health problems. Getting a massage regularly can help reduce inflammation.

People who are interested in getting a massage should book an appointment with a chiropractic old bridge or a massage therapist. Pain relief, faster healing, lower blood pressure and a reduction in inflammation are just a few of the many health benefits that can be reaped from regular massages.
