Massage therapy offers countless benefits for our bodies, such as improved immune function, pain management and reduced muscle tension. However, did you know that it can also have a remarkable impact on our mental health?
The importance of massage has been emphasized during the pandemic as worries and anxieties continue to disrupt the lives of people. Factors such as sudden shifts in daily routines, financial pressures, uncertainties and social isolation have played a role in deteriorating one’s mental health.
Surveys have revealed a significant rise in the number of people who reported symptoms of anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia during the pandemic, thus necessitating the need for an effective coping outlet.
Effect of Massage on Mental Health
Recent medical research has shown a direct link between massage therapy and mental health. A single massage session can have a profound influence on your psychological wellness.
1.It helps to relieve stress.
While social distancing norms are necessary to arrest the spread of coronavirus, they can make us feel isolated and lonely. Additionally, the negative effects of news has contributed to the high levels of stress during this time.
Stress can impact our bones and muscles in many ways, manifesting as deficiencies and pain. Massage therapy helps to reduce stress that accumulates in our muscles when we experience elevated anxiety or high pressure. It also reduces cortisol levels, a hormone our bodies release when we feel stressed.
2.It alleviates anxiety.
Ever since the onset of the pandemic, we have been confronted with much uncertainty. Uncertainty about future events can lead to a constant state of anxiety. Massage therapy can help settle your mind and reduce anxiety. It is often combined with meditational music, soft lighting and a calming atmosphere, providing you with some quiet time to navigate your emotions.
3.It improves sleep quality.
People who are weighed down by COVID-19 anxieties often struggle with getting a good night’s sleep. A deep, relaxing massage is one of the best ways to naturally improve sleep quality and get the rest you need. Massage raises the serotonin and dopamine levels in our bodies, which are chemicals that influence our mood and, in turn, our sleep quality.
