5 Reasons Mom Massages Are A Necessity NOT A Luxury
- Stress Relief:
A massage is a proven way to reduce or remove stress. Stress can cause tension in muscles, especially the muscles around the shoulders, neck, arms, and face. If you, like many moms, have a difficult time with your attitude, it might be an indication that you have excess stresses on your body and mind. By escaping into a massage for an hour once or twice a month, you will experience relaxation and rejuvenation that will allow you to learn how to center yourself and control your emotions in a calm and relaxed way
- Pain Relief:
When was the last time you stood with out the old person noise sneaking out? How about turned your head with full range of motion and not being reminded you must have slept wrong? Massage can reduce or remove pain caused by daily life, including the extra pains of being mom creates; looking down nonstop at that amazing tiny human you created as you feed. Carrying baby, car seat, diaper bag, purse and the rest of the word on your shoulders.
- Boost your immune system and increases blood circulation to keep mom up and healthy.
Moms can’t get sick, ain’t none of us got time for that! Getting a massage may also benefit your immune system, a new study suggests; people who received a 45-minute massage had an increased number of lymphocytes, which are white blood cells that play a large role in defending the body from disease, according to researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The massage brought other physical changes, too. Afterwards, participants had lower levels of cytokines, which are molecules that play a role in inflammation. Chronically high levels of inflammation are known to be associated with conditions such as asthma, cardiovascular disease and depression. The massages also had an impact on participants’ hormone levels. Receiving a massage decreased levels of cortisol, a stress hormone , and vasopressin, a hormone believed to play a role in aggressive behavior, according to the researchers.
- Improves sleep:
Massage is a smart, healthy, and drug-free option that has helped many people overcome insomnia. Massage releases serotonin; serotonin is essential to creating your own melatonin. Because melatonin influences the sleep stage of an individual’s circadian rhythm, a natural way of boosting serotonin is a positive sleep-inducing option. Added with the reduction of inflammation, pain, and stress you will sleep better than your baby!
- Increases energy levels:
Studies have shown that regular massages can help improve muscle function, recovery time, and circulation. All of these things are important for a mom who is also trying to keep her body healthy with exercise and nutrition. Your body will recover from workouts much quicker when massage is regularly involved. Massage can also aid in healthy weight maintenance by allowing your body to rid itself of toxins and harmful substances and cleanse itself naturally. A massage can leave you feeling energized and revitalized. If you are having trouble keeping up at work or are fighting the “sleepies” every afternoon, the answer might just be a good massage to relieve energy-sapping tension and boost circulation.
