Massage therapy has long been known as a form of relaxation and stress relief. But did you know that regular massage therapy can offer a multitude of other benefits as well? We spoke to Sarah, a regular client at LoDo Massage Studio, who has been receiving massages for the past five years, to learn more about her experience and the benefits she has experienced.
Sarah initially started receiving massages to alleviate the tension in her shoulders and neck caused by her desk job. However, she soon realized that regular massages offered far more than just pain relief. "I feel so much better after a massage," she says. "Not just physically, but mentally as well. It's a great way to reset and de-stress."
Studies have shown that massage therapy can help lower blood pressure, improve circulation, boost immune function, and even aid in the recovery of muscle injuries. It can also release endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers, and promote relaxation by reducing the levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline.
Sarah agrees that she has experienced many of these benefits firsthand. "I used to get sick all the time, but since I started getting regular massages, my immune system has been so much stronger," she says. "I also feel like I have more energy and can focus better at work."
So, how often should you get a massage to reap these benefits? According to Sarah, it's different for everyone. "For me, once a month works great," she says. "But I have friends who go every other week, or even once a week. It really just depends on your individual needs."
If you're looking to improve your overall well-being, consider adding regular massage therapy to your routine. Not only will it offer immediate relaxation and stress relief, but it can also have long-term benefits for your physical and mental health.
