Relieve Tension and Promote Relaxation
A good back massage can help relieve lower back pain and aid relaxation. After a strenuous workout or sitting at a desk all day, your back muscles are likely to be tense from overuse or repetitive use. Repetitive motion or immobility may cause neck and shoulder pain. An upper back massage may help relieve the tension in that area. Massage combined with specialised massage waxes or aromatherapy blends is an ideal way to wind down after a busy, stressful day.
A back massage stimulates the production of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, chemicals that make the body feel good. This helps manage pain and may help prevent anxiety and depression.
A back massage relaxes the larger muscles and relieves tension that may be causing you to have a difficult time falling asleep or staying in a deep sleep. This allows you to have full sleep cycles necessary for optimum performance and good health.
A back massage stimulates circulation and increases blood flow to the area. This will help bring blood with oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and major organs.
