Massage therapy has long been considered a wonderful way to relax and unwind while a skilled professional works with you to ease the tension and stress from your body as your mind lapses into a restful and relaxed state. However, massage is about way more than relaxation. While massage therapy is a great way to unwind, especially if we have a stressful job career or lifestyle, it should also be an integral part of your health and fitness regimen.
If you live in Wilmington Delaware, the benefits of massage therapy can help to combat many of the health issues faced by the people in your state and city.
We’re here for Wilmington
There’s a lot to love about Wilmington, and we’re proud to serve the people of this fair city every day. There’s the beautifully preserved colonial town of Old New Castle where residents can get a feel for their local history. There’s the historic Read House and Gardens. There’s the stunning Nemours Mansion, the stately Winterthur museum and the stunning Longwood Gardens. Or you can simply enjoy the waterfront attractions of Wilmington’s historic downtown.
Yet, while Wilmington has a great deal to delight tourists and residents alike, its citizens are also prone to a variety of health issues… Many of which can be aided by massage therapy.
Hypertension and heart disease are rife in the state of Delaware while hundreds of thousands of people in Delaware suffer from arthritis. Many of the health problems in Delaware are caused by obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.
The good news, however, is that we’re here for the people of Wilmington with a wide array of massage therapies to help combat some of the city’s most troubling health concerns while also easing stress and aiding relaxation.
The benefits of massage therapy in Wilmington, Delaware
Massage therapy has a range of benefits that can help to aid overall health.
Massage therapy is important in easing stress and mitigating the health problems which are caused by stress. For example, stress elevates our body’s production of the stress hormone Cortisol. When we face chronic stress because of our job or lifestyle it can affect our bodies in a number of damaging ways. Cortisol causes us to store more fat on our bellies, particularly visceral fat which is below muscle tissue and surrounds our major organs. It can increase our risk of heart disease, hypertension and even type 2 diabetes.
While links between stress and cancer are tenuous, we do know that in cancer patients stress hormones can also bond with cancer cells and help them to spread or for tumors to grow.
Studies show that those with arthritis can also benefit enormously from massage as it can help with pain relief, ease stiffness and help sufferers to get their lost mobility back.
Massage can also be extremely effective for those who have active lifestyles including amateur and professional athletes. Sports massage can help to keep muscle groups pliant and massively reduce the risk of strain, injury or debilitating conditions like tendonitis and tendonosis. For those who are injured on the playing field or at the gym, massage therapy can help to facilitate faster healing and help you to get back at the top of your game sooner.
Massage therapy is also effective in improving circulation, meaning that your skin, hair and muscles get the oxygen and nutrients that they need from your blood meaning that you stay looking and feeling healthier.
Modern living can have you in a constant state of stress, a condition which is responsible for a range of maladies from headaches to high blood pressure. Regular massage therapy can help you to better manage that stress and enjoy a vastly improved quality of life!
