Massage therapy is beneficial for a number of reasons. It helps the body and mind relax and rejuvenate, improves skin tone, improves blood circulation and reduces muscle soreness. But there are quite a few other benefits associated with massage therapy that you may not know!

Here are some of the lesser known and more surprising benefits:

Postural stress is a common problem faced by many with the rise in the number of hours spent sedentary. Prolonged sitting can increase stress in the head, neck, shoulders and the lower back. A good massage can help relieve this imbalance.

Massage therapy can also boost immunity as it increases the white blood cell count in the body.

Massage is beneficial for depression patients too. Human touch is known to ease the symptoms of depression and massage therapy with its soothing benefits is all the more beneficial.

Massage therapy can enhance blood flow as well as lower blood pressure, in turn, improving overall body function.

Regular massages can stimulate the production of the body’s natural lubricants which help in keeping the flexibility at a maximum. A massage usually works on;
  • Muscles
  • Connective tissues
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Joint etc.
All increasing flexibility and range of motion. 

Regular massages can also help keep the digestive system functioning well. Stimulating peristalsis, which can aid in relief from constipation.

Massage can have a stimulating effect on the digestive organs, which helps improve your digestion.

Massage therapy goes well beyond just making you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. At Balima Spa in Geneva, we offer a variety of massages in luxury and tranquillity, so why not indulge yourself knowing all the additional benefits of this type of therapy.
