10 Reasons You'll Be Happy You Bought a Massage Chair
You've probably already begun feeling the benefits of your massage chair, but do you know just how many ways massage benefits your mind and body?
Studies have shown that massage reduces stress on physical and psychological levels by lowering heart rate, blood pressure, cortisol levels, and insulin levels. Serotonin and dopamine are also released, which helps the body overcome chronic or habitual as well as acute or short-term stress.
We've already noted that massage boosts serotonin levels, which the brain can convert to the sleep hormone, melatonin. So enjoy a pre-bedtime rub-down for a solid night's sleep!
Improve Your Mood
Massage also increases the production of endorphins, your body's natural "feel good" chemical. This helps balance your body's mood and more.
Improve Cardiovascular Health
Lower your blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. Research shows massage can serve as a powerful complementary treatment for heart health!
Manage Lower Back Pain
According to the American Chiropractic Association, lower back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Don't be part of the statistic--use your massage chair regularly!
Tension headaches are often caused by poor posture, a sore back or tight neck, or constantly straining your eyes. Massage improves blood flow and loosens tight muscles to reduce that pain and tension.
By helping you relax and giving you a moment to pause, massage opens your mind. You can think more clearly and get a better picture of the project or problem you're trying to solve.
Rekindle the Romance
One of the common side effects of chronic stress, depression, and anxiety is reduced libido and sexual dysfunction. Since massage aids in treating those conditions and releases feel-good hormones, it helps the body develop a healthy sex drive.
Be More Mobile
Massage therapy improves flexibility and range of motion by working on muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It also stimulates blood flow. This keeps your joints more fluid and less prone to injury.
Research shows that massage strengthens immunity by increasing the activity level of the body's white blood cells, which fight viruses. The up in white blood cells is a result of a decrease in cortisol, which destroys natural killer cells.
