The Benefits of Massage Therapy

Does anyone really need a reason to get a massage? Whether you work nine to five or you’re chasing after the kids, we all get tense, and we all need a little R&R. Daily stressors and an ever-growing agenda of work and social engagements can leave our bodies in ruin—that is, if you don’t do something about it. The benefits of massage therapy reach further than immediate muscle relief and relaxation—and when you pay for a session at Your Chiropractor in Egg Harbor Township with Xspero™, the benefits only increase.

Twenty percent of your Xspero™ Dollars for Your Chiropractor goes back into your community when you select a local charity to donate a portion of your purchase to. So, if you’re looking for a reason to get a massage, let this be yours.

When you’re ready for relief, here are a few benefits of massage therapy that’ll make you want to tap the app and purchase Xspero™ Dollars today.

It relieves stress.

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, patients who were depressed or anxious had significantly lower stress levels after a massage. So, instead of pouring a tall glass of red or reaching for a stack of Oreos, a weekend massage may be just the right fix for extinguishing stress.

It improves sleep quality.

Who couldn’t use a good night’s sleep? Along with decreased stress, when muscles are relaxed, it can contribute to quality sleep. R&R is more than rest and relaxation—it also means being healthier and reducing inflammation. 

It boosts circulation.

While nothing gets the blood flowing like exercise, a massage will loosen muscles and tendons and help increase circulation. Increased circulation can battle fatigue and even assist with pain management. 

It can relieve chronic pain.

If you suffer from back pain, migraines, or the everyday aches of aging, the benefits of massage therapy may surprise you. Even those who experience arthritis or fibromyalgia have found relief with professional techniques.
