A 30-minute massage for wellness can improve overall health and well-being. Massage treats a wide range of health conditions, including acute and chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, sprains, and strains among many others.
It has been shown that the psychological and physiological state of patients with tension headache improves within 24 hours after receiving a 30-minute massage, according to University of Granada researchers.
Tension headaches are conventionally treated with analgesics that relieve symptoms temporarily. One of the main causes of this type of headache is the presence of trigger points. A 30-minute massage on cervical trigger points improves autonomic nervous system regulation in patients with headaches. Patients exhibit a better psychological state and show significant reductions in the stress and anxiety associated with this disorder.
Other benefits of massage include:
• Boosts the immune system.
• Reduces stress.
• Increases flexibility and range of motion.
• Regulates blood pressure.
• Reduces pain and stiffness.
