Massage Helps Improve Sleep Quality!
Massage is known as a relaxation activity. It instantly brings the mind into a less stressful state and tends to ease stress from the body, joints, muscles, tendons, and other areas. It is a fine-tuned treatment that can lead to profound health changes.
Did you know that improved sleep quality is one of them?
Research has shown that sleep loss is the third leading cause of disability in the United States, affecting 25 million Americans. One possible reason for this is stress-related exhaustion. When our bodies, minds, and emotions are stressed and exhausted, we don’t think well, we don’t eat well, and we don’t perform well. This can lead to accidents, relationship turmoil, and a host of other problems.
The ability to regulate our sleeping patterns has a profound affect on our mental health and well-being. When we get a good night’s sleep, we are more energized, focused and ready to tackle the day. Millions of people suffer from stress-related insomnia and nearly 30 percent of Americans experience stress related insomnia at least once a week.
The quality of sleep is connected to the quality of emotional and physical health. The two biggest contributors to stress are insomnia and chronic pain. The benefits of massage for better sleep are numerous. Massage is proven to decrease stress and help you relax. It can provide an escape from everyday life stresses and provide a sense of beauty and well-being. Massage therapists know how to provide a nurturing and positive experience that can help alleviate chronic pain and promote relaxation on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional. Less pain and more relaxation and rest will ultimately result in better sleep.
