Sunday, February 2, 2020

I'll just cut straight to the chase and i'm not trying to re invent the wheel here, but in no pratcular order here are my 5 main reasons as to why you should get a massage, check it out.

1. Relieve stress and anxiety

In today’s world, there seem to be more stressors than ever before. Taking time out from your busy schedule to come get a massage can greatly reduce the amount of stress you are feeling.

2. Relieve lower back pain

Lower back pain is a common complaint among many people, especially as they age. When severe enough, this kind of pain can lead to missed work or disability. Massage therapy can be effective in decreasing pain in your lower back, and in decreasing the disability associated with it.

3. Reduce pain in other areas of the body

While lower back pain is very common, pain in other areas can also be treated with Richards Massage Therapy. Common areas where clients seek relief from pain are the neck, the shoulders, knee and hip joints, and other areas of the body. There are many causes for pain, and I am trained and expienced to help you manage and deal with pain caused by a range of conditions including arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, myalgia, carpel tunnel syndrome and headaches etc.

4. Reduce muscle tension

From the highest paid professional athletes to those of us who follow more simple workout programs, people who exercise can benefit from massage. Massage, particularly a Sports Massage, can help with conditioning, range of motion, and flexibility, as well as speed up recovery from muscle injuries.

5. Improve flexibility

For athletes and non-athletes alike, massage can improve the range of motion and flexibility of your muscles. Massage stimulates blood circulation around your muscles, which increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles, leading to increased flexibility, among other benefits.
