“Oh to be young again”, has been a common phrase for years. Many experience the feeling of wanting to go back to the more youthful time of their lives. Early in life, most people don’t have to worry about an aching back, or being stiff after doing their favorite activities. However, with the help of massage therapy, 50 can be the new 30. Massage can make you feel energized and more flexible giving you the feeling of youth.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 1930 the average life expectancy in the United States for both sexes and all races was only about 60 years old. Today that average has risen to about 79 years old. We are living almost 20 years longer which means our bodies are enduring more in our everyday lives. Our muscles can get stiff and sore after doing simple daily activities, our immune system weakens, and we lose some of our flexibility. Something as natural as a massage can help rejuvenate your life in more ways than one. Massage can strengthen the immune system, relax and renew sore muscles, as well as increase flexibility.
Hormones are a regulatory substance that can change our emotions and feelings. They can change because of simple things like the amount of sleep we get or what we eat. They also change during certain stages in our lives like pregnancy or starting a new job. Situations like these bring unwanted hormones that can cause stress. The use of massage can help stimulate certain hormones in our bodies to create an overall feeling of well-being.
Massage can have an effect on our hormones in many different ways to make our bodies feel better. Massage can help to reduce stress as well as trigger happiness and contentment.
