by Monarch Women's Wellness on March 29, 2013 · 20 comments

Have you ever had the soothing and stress-relieving experience of a massage?

If not, here are 7 reasons to schedule a massage today!

Stone Massage

  • Helps manage anxiety and depression by reducing the levels of the stress hormone, cortisol by 50%, according to an article by Huffington Post.
  • Eases back pain tremendously, reducing the need for painkillers by 36%, according to an article on WebMd.

Back pain

  • Affects sleep patterns and can help with sleep disorders because of massage’s effect on delta waves, the kind of brain waves connected to deep sleep, according toan article by Huffington Post.
  • Helps curb headaches and lessen their symptoms, according to an article on WebMd.
  • Boosts immunity by increasing the disease fighting white blood cells in your body. Used in Cancer Therapy because of this, according to an article by Huffington Post.
  • Helps alleviate the pain and discomfort in pregnancy in a natural and safe way, according to an article on www.babycenter.com.

  • These are only SOME of the benefits of a massage. Helping to manage the pain of arthritis, beating the discomfort of PMS, and aiding in blood pressure control are a few more reasons why you should “get a rubdown”!
