As the icy weather of winter starts to settle in, lazing around and staying indoors with a cup of coffee becomes a creature comfort. Whilst others prefer increasing levels of activity through exercise due to it’s ability to help blood flow during the colder months. With dropping temperatures, the body becomes stiff and may cause a cycle of pain if not looked after properly. While keeping fit is important, it’s also important to care of your physical self and well-being. So by having regular remedial massage it becomes a great way to help alleviate pain and muscle tensions.
Remedial massage is not like your common relaxation massages as it uses specialised massage techniques which focus on applying methodical pressures on the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue). This is beneficial to treat body aches and pains, can reduce muscle stiffness. Furthermore it can reduce heart rate, blood pressure and cortisol levels.
As a result one of the immediate benefits of massage is the feeling of deep relaxation and calmness. This is because massage prompts the release of endorphin and produces the feeling of well-being. Levels of stress hormones such as adrenaline is also reduced, which may help repair the immune system.
