Without a doubt "touch" is the most underestimated sense out of the human body's five senses. Think about it, the first thing we do when we bang our toe, finger or any other part of our body is to quickly give it a hold and a rub. This is because the body loves to be touched.
My message to you is regularly get a massage. Not only will a massage ease the stress in your life but it taps into the body's natural ability to heal and rejuvenate itself.
From infants to seniors, massage is the perfect therapy to ease muscle pain and stress and it often eliminates the need for medication. If you have ever experienced a good massage you are familiar with how beneficial it can be to your overall well-being. Because a massage stimulates your nervous system and releases endorphins the body's natural feel good hormones, some people report and out of body experience. Getting a massage can be that powerful.
In fact, because of its real health benefits, some hospitals are making them standard therapy for surgery patients. Here are some interesting and surprising details about massaging that you might not have known.
- It will give a boost to your level of attentiveness and concentration
- Relieve pain (from migraines, labor, fibromyalgia and even cancer)
- Stimulate the lymph system and boost your bodies ability to defend itself against illnesses
- Reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and ease insomnia
- Reduce symptoms of PMS
Get a massage regularly; it will make a huge difference.
