Many professional and amateur athletes already enjoy the benefits of regular massage, especially after a contest. But that isn’t the only time massage is beneficial. The following are other ways regular sessions on a massage chair can benefit any amateur or professional athlete.
Increases joint flexibility
Helps with quick recovery from strenuous exercises by increasing blood flow to tired muscles
Reduces cramps and muscle spasms
Softens and relaxes injured, overused muscles
Promotes healthy flow of lymph fluid, which helps the body clear lactic acid from muscles
Improves overall state of mind, leading to better sleep and better performance
People suffering with chronic pain
Chronic pain is a debilitating condition not only for the sufferer but also those they live with. For chronic pain sufferers, basic activities get difficult daily as they tend to rethink them, as opposed to others who don’t think about them. While a chair massage won’t do away with the pain, it can alleviate the pain and bring relief. Many massage therapists and chiropractors that regularly give massages on massage chairs recognize this fact. Here is how massage chairs can benefit chronic pain sufferers.
Boosts circulation, which helps supply oxygen and nutrients to organs and tissues, which helps with healing.
Helps the body release natural painkillers known as endorphins
Relieves stress, which relaxes the body. Pain can be more intense if the body is tense, so this is really helpful. This can also lead to better sleep.
Those with chronic stress
Life can be stressful in the fast-paced, modern world. Many jobs require swift decisions, which may have an impact on many people’s lives. We juggle family, community, and job commitments. On good days, some people may do quite fine with the stress. On the other hand, some people can be pushed over the edge by stress on bad days.
Although stress affects everyone, everyone reacts to it differently, and some are much stressed regularly. Stress affects our relationships, our own well-being and sleep, among other things. Moreover, stress has real effects on your body, such as heightened risk of getting ill, elevated blood pressure, and heightened risk of cardiovascular disease.
You can relax if you get massage chair sessions regularly. By relaxing your sore and tense muscles, a massage may help release endorphins–the feel-good hormones that increase your happiness, putting your mind and body at rest. In turn, this can help you get a better, deeper sleep at night, improving your well-being as well.
