Benefits of Massage Go Beyond Stress Relief

The stress relieving benefits of Everett Naturopath Massage are very well known, but many are not aware of the fact that massage in the hands of a naturopathic doctor can actually help improve overall health. Massage has been proven to help manage chronic diseases and even put the body in a better state to fight serious problems like cancer. In fact, with all of the health benefits of massage, it should be considered part of the active wellness lifestyle, not just a luxury for overly-stressed people.

Studies have shown that as much as 90 percent of disease, even life threatening diseases, are related in some way to stress. If you can lower stress through massage, you can make the body healthier. Specifically, massage brings the following health benefits:

  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Increases circulation
  • Stimulates the flow of lymph, thus helping detox the body
  • Improves recovery from injury
  • Improves sleep
  • Improves concentration
  • Improves energy
  • Decreases anxiety
  • Eliminates migraines
  • Reduces scarring after injury or surgery
  • Releases endorphins

This puts the body into a better state to fight illness. For example, increasing the flow of lymph can actually spark the body’s natural defense system. This can lead to an increase in the number of cells that fight deadly diseases, like cancer.

To get the most benefit out of your massage session, you need to work with a massage therapist who works alongside a naturopath. When the therapist and naturopath work together, you can be certain that your overall wellness goals will be considered at all times. Also, by choosing a massage therapist employed by a naturopath, you can be confident that the therapist is fully trained.
