WHAT A DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE GUN COULD DO FOR YOU
Massages are great for relaxing your muscles by stimulating the blood flow to areas of your feet and legs that have been lacking in oxygen and nutrients. This muscle relaxation can improve flexibility and significantly reduce pain caused by tight muscles.
Yes, massage is a very popular well known pain reliever, but truth is... So many are doing it wrong and missing out on the many benefits that massage can bring.
They are missing out on what the power of FREQUENT Massage could do for their lives. Most go to get a Massage a few times a year. Those with chronic conditions once a week or bi-weekly. Which according to research is still not enough.
To see major results, you would need to experience frequent Massages.
Improves blood circulation:
Due to a sedentary lifestyle, many people don’t use their feet muscles properly, thus impeding good blood flow. Also, tight, pointed shoes–especially high heels–hinder circulation. Ten minutes of foot massage daily helps in transporting oxygen to the body’s cells, which is essential for overall health.
Helps in relaxation:
After a tiring and stressful day, a foot massage is a soothing and relaxing way to relax, particularly after a long day of standing and walking around, as the feet tend to swell up. Massage and reflexology of 5 to 10 minutes before going to bed can improve feelings of general well-being.
Promotes better sleep:
The best time to do foot massage is before going to bed. A soothing and relaxing foot massage improves the blood circulation. This helps in getting a peaceful sleep.
Relieves body pains:
This is the best part of reflexology. If done carefully, it treats pains and aches such as headaches, migraines, neck pain, lower and upper backaches.
Improves mood and fights depression:
Foot massage and reflexology helps in fighting depression. Certain points on the feet are helpful in alleviating depression symptoms. Massaging these points or applying pressure to them for a few minutes 2 or 3 times a day can help relieve symptoms of depression.
Improve Postural Alignment
Leg, hip, and lower back massage can improve postural misalignment and reduce resulting chronic pain, according to a case study conducted and reported by the International Professional School of Bodywork (IPSB). According to the IPSB, distorted posture can lead to shortening of lower back extensors and hip flexors, which in turn causes pain in the lower back, hips and knees.
Relief from Lymphedema
Lymphedema is swelling, usually in the extremities, caused when a condition stops lymphatic fluids from properly circulating through the torso. Lymphedema often occurs after the lymph nodes have been disrupted or removed due to cancer surgery and other medical treatments.
