There has been exhaustive study on the many health benefits of therapeutic massage therapy. From once a considered alternative healing remedy in the Western world, massage therapy today is widely respected, having many applications in Western medicine and health institutions. Many variations of massage therapy are performed in holistic medicine settings and are often used in mainstream scientific medicine to support healing of many physical and emotional conditions.
At Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa, the most common reason customers book our massage services is for relaxation and stress release. To be in a stressed state is to feel mentally pressured or emotionally upset and disturbed. It is a negative reaction in response to fear, worry, loss, a negative event or any other adverse influences and pressures. Many people suffering from stress often claim they feel as if they have no or very little control or feel vulnerable. Chronic stress can be very debilitating, making us feel anxious, nervous, worried and afraid. Some people are more susceptible and suffer more from stress and stress disorders then others. However, prolonged stress can lead to many negative physical and psychological health consequences and risks.
Here at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa, during your free consultation we will design a Stress Buster massage therapy and very relaxing, body soothing Jacuzzi bath treatment. Many people claim relaxing massage therapy to be more effective than many natural relaxation and meditation techniques. Most doctors and health professionals will recommend stressed patients try massage and meditation techniques before prescribing drug treatments. Natural stress management techniques are always recommended and preferred as first line therapies directed towards stress related conditions.
In very simply terms, our emotional state, our mood and outlook is very much related to our mental state of mind. Mind and body are very closely connected. When events or circumstances affect our peace of mind it soon leads to negative physical reactions. Common reactions can be teeth or hand clenching, tensed muscles, high blood pressure, headaches, depression and fatigue. Massage therapy has been proven to be very effected in counteracting many stress related symptoms. A massage therapy session at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa can be very effective in improving mood, emotional state and having a very calming and healing effect on both mind and body.
Medical research has proven that massage therapy can afford effective pain relief, even successfully replacing drug therapy in many clinical observations. Non-drug remedies are always preferable, as natural cures bypass risk of possible drug side effects and contraindications. Massage therapy is very effective in stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's feel-good hormones. So, not only is this reason a massage feels so good, it's also why it's often a very effective and natural therapy to relieve pain, no matter what the cause.
Massage therapy is a very effective safe and natural method to improve the circulation of blood around the body. Better circulation means oxygen and nutrient rich blood reaches muscles and tissue cells faster, ensuring more efficient waste byproduct removal, this in turn leads to better healing generally and much faster muscle repair for worked muscles. Massage sessions can make you look healthy too, as improved circulation promotes clearer, softer, healthier looking skin from improved skin nourishment and skin benefits from moisturising oil treatments. Skin cells benefit greatly from the improved circulation and increased oxygen and nutrients made available.
Massage therapy improves lymphatic drainage. A healthy lymphatic system improves the body's own ability to heal itself, meaning you are less susceptible to various illnesses. Massage therapy effectively promotes the stimulation of the lymphatic system, boasting the body's own natural defense mechanisms and immunity.

Greatly improved flexibility is another prime benefit from most massage therapy treatments available at Blackpool Massage Services & Boutique Blackpool Day Spa. The natural relaxation and release of muscle tensions achieved during massage therapy, combined with gentle stretching techniques that are present to some degree in all our massage therapy treatments results in dramatic flexibility improvements in joint movements in most cases. Regular massage treatments will not only improve flexibility in joints and allow a wider range of movements; it will also reduce chance of injury during exercise, sports and even everyday life. Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis can also benefit from therapeutic massage therapy and improved flexibility.
We all need to exercise to help maintain good health and to help protect us from disease and sickness. This becomes far more important as we age. To develop and maintain muscle health is a very important aspect for our overall health and wellbeing. We could not even breathe without the help of our muscles, and our heart is perhaps our most important muscle, if that muscle becomes too weak its called heart failure. It’s not only lost love that can break your heart. Even mild exercise, like walking has very positive health benefits. Just miss the bus every now and then or take the stairs to help save your heart.
Research has proven that massage therapy has a very positive effect on muscle health, growth capabilities and fitness levels. Any form of exercise, even walking breaks down muscle tissue. Exercised and worked muscles require good nutrition and rest to repair and recover. This muscle recovery phase is greatly improved and is much faster with massage treatments. Massage improves the body’s ability of getting oxygen and nutrient rich blood to muscle and tissue cells faster, with more efficient waste product removal, leading to faster muscle repair and growth after exercise.
