Massages are much more than just relaxing. In fact, our natural instincts turn to them in moments of need. This is the reason that you self-massage sore muscles, and it has also led to the rapidly growing global spa industry. As an added bonus, there are numerous health benefits associated with a massage. Fortunately, massages come in a variety of lengths and styles, which means that even people with truly hectic lifestyles can take advantage of this health-boosting technique. At Planet Beach Spray & Spa, you can get a massage at lunch without breaking the bank or even taking off your clothes! If you’re still not convinced, here are a few reasons why a massage can significantly benefit your health!

-Massages can alleviate headaches. Whether you have a tension-type headache or suffer from migraines, medical research has proven that regular massages can help reduce or even eliminate this painful problem.

-Massages soothe and relax the body.  The right amount of pressure, sometimes combined with heat, can soothe your achy muscles. If your body is tight from a tense week at the office, a massage is a great way to relax!

-Massages reduce joint pain. Joint pain is a common issue that is experienced by everyone from pregnant women to fibromyalgia sufferers. Receiving a regular massage will relieve this pain. In fact, many medical professionals refer patients with joint pain to massage.

-Massages can dramatically reduce anxiety. Approximately 40 million Americans have some form of anxiety, and this can be borderline emotionally crippling at times. Anxiety is even responsible for almost one-third of the nation’s total mental health expenses. The good news is that massage can cut your body’s level of stress hormones in half, which will alleviate the symptoms of anxiety.

-Minimize back pain with a massage. Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints, but you do not need to live in pain. Studies have shown that massage reduces the need for painkillers by 36 percent, and it is more effective than chiropractic care or acupuncture.

-Massages promote flexibility. Most people are not nearly as flexible as they would like to be, and this often causes uncomfortable stiffness. Fortunately, a massage can make it easier to increase your flexibility.

-Research shows massages help cancer patients. Four out of every 10 adults will battle with cancer at some point during their life. Massage is now being widely used as a complementary treatment because it offers a reduction in many of the symptoms associated with cancer, including nausea, pain, insomnia and fatigue.

-Re-energize with a massage! Do you often feel drained by the end of your workday? Massages will relax you, but they are also known for making the receiver feel more energetic throughout the rest of the day.

-Massage relieves insomnia. At any given time, one-third of adults are experiencing a bout of insomnia, so it is no surprise that people are constantly looking for ways to improve their quality of sleep. Sleep studies have shown a very strong link between weekly massages and reduced insomnia. This is extremely important when you consider the many health issues that are caused by a lack of sleep, including a weakened immune system and a greater risk of depression.

-Increase your quality of life with massages. Medical patients receiving palliative care experience a boost in their quality of life with regular massages, and the same is true for everyone. This is one of the primary reasons that more than half of the 32.6 million Americans who get a massage at least once a year do so for health reasons.

-Massages help digestive issues. Everyone experiences the occasional digestive issue, and a massage can help! Regardless of whether you have been constipated for three days or have a chronic digestive issue, a massage is a good way to get your system working more properly.

-Massage combats stress. Chronic stress increases your risk of contracting cancer, heart disease, cirrhosis of the liver and lung ailments. Additionally, it is responsible for many accidents and suicides. In other words, stress is quite literally killing some people, but you do not have to remain so stressed out! Instead, go to your local Planet Beach so you can take advantage of the stress-busting benefits of massage therapy!

-Boost your immune system with massages. Everyone can benefit from a boosted immune system, especially people who typically deal with several minor illnesses every year. A research group at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center discovered that a single massage alters the human body’s immune response. Therefore, getting a massage weekly or biweekly is a great way to strengthen your immune system!

-Massages can beat PMS. The pain that some women experience before and during their menstrual cycle can be effectively combated by a massage. Even better is the fact that studies have shown a direct connection between massage and a reduction in water retention, depression and other symptoms of menstrual distress.

-Massage fixes postural stress. Another major problem associated with sitting all day is the development of serious neck and shoulder pain. This is caused by postural stress, and it can also impact your glutes and lower back. Massages address this physical stress and will relieve your painful symptoms.

-Massage will lower your blood pressure. If you have issues with high blood pressure, then scheduling regular massages is definitely a good idea. Individuals with a hectic lifestyle and high blood pressure can benefit from as little as a 10-minute chair massage once a week.

-Increase your blood circulation with massages. Massages help your blood circulation, and this offers a long list of benefits. For example, if you have any health conditions that slow down your blood circulation, massage will provide healthier skin, better organ functionality and improved cell growth.

-Become more alert with a massage. Planet Beach offers automated massages, and this is a scientifically backed way to make people feel more alert. The mental boost you receive from a simple 15-minute chair or water jet massage will make daily tasks much easier and can reduce your odds of being in an accident.

So, what are you waiting for? At Planet Beach, we offer a variety of automated massage options! The great part about it is you can get a massage in just 20 minutes on your lunch break or after work!
