A wellness routine is the foundation of a healthy life. When you create a routine of healthy habits and choices focused on your overall well-being, you help create the best and happiest versions of you. Wellness is more than making the right choices in terms of diet and exercise. Wellness encompasses the basics of health, such as restful sleep, self-care, stress management, and more.
A little planning never hurt anyone – on the contrary, it helped a lot of people achieve their goals. A wellness routine is a daily schedule that incorporates all of your healthy habits – like your meal plan, exercise routine, self-care activities, and sleep. The wellness routine will support you on hard days and give you extra energy on the best days.
Why is massage important?
From our point of view, massage is not a habit that can only be done at a special spa center (although once a week it helps the body and mind a lot). We believe that massage can be incorporated into your daily routine to help reduce pain, reduce stress levels, and eliminate muscle tension. Also, massage time gives you the time to disconnect from your daily problems and reconnect with yourself, offering the attention you deserve and clearing your mind.
In the following lines, you will discover 5 reasons to include massage in your wellness routine.
Reduces stress levels
Massage helps reduce stress by releasing endorphins that calm the peripheral nervous system. The function of the peripheral nervous system is the communication relay between the brain and the extremities. Massage stimulates the release of hormones associated with relaxation in the peripheral nervous system, thus allowing the message of calm and relaxation to be transmitted. When endorphins are released, the level of stress hormones is reduced, so the feeling of stress is alleviated.
It relaxes the muscles
We don’t always realize how much muscle tension we accumulate throughout the day. When the body is stressed, the stress hormone (cortisol) is released. This release can lead to headaches, weight gain, insomnia, digestive problems and other side effects that no one wants.
Massage is effective in increasing the temperature of muscle tissues, reducing pain, and increasing tissue elasticity.
Increasing the temperature of muscle tissues through massage techniques favors muscle relaxation. Once the surface muscles are relaxed, the techniques work on a deeper level of tissue, relaxing and de-tensioning. Thus, tension and pain around an area can be eliminated.
Fights the negative effects of sitting
We know and understand that many of today’s jobs are in front of the computer. Most people who sit at a desk for a long period of time suffer from muscle pain (especially the back, shoulders and neck areas) due to the sitting posture. In this context, massage helps by eliminating muscle tension accumulated over time, helps to increase blood circulation, improves posture and expands the movements one can make.
Improves sleep quality
When you are relaxed, it is much easier to fall asleep. Sleep is vital for the body’s daily performance. Lack of sleep can lead to decreased cognitive functions, exhaustion and muscle tension among others.
Sleep chemistry is relevant when talking about the benefits of massage because massage directly influences the body’s production of serotonin, which is essential for the production of melatonin. It also reduces muscle tension, lowers cortisol levels in the body, which helps with overall pain relief health and better quality sleep.
It improves the immune system
Massage is scientifically proven to help enhance the production of white blood cells in the body, which help defend the body against diseases, and to eliminate toxins from the body by increasing blood flow throughout the body. Remember that massage is welcome before you get sick, as a preventative measure in your regular health routine, not as a cure.
