There is nothing better than a good night’s sleep after a tiring day at work. To rejuvenate your body and to make it ready for the next day, it’s essential that you get optimal, quality sleep. Not just that, a good night’s sleep is pertinent for the healthy functioning of your body organs and cognitive ability.
People with sleep issues are on the top of the list who witness a degradation in their work performance; they are also the ones who aren’t able to spend quality time with their friends and family or even resort to substance abuse. And not to forget, if you aren’t seeping tight at night, it could also lead to weight gain.
Massage therapy: A Miracle for sleep disorders
If you find yourself in an absolute distressful condition once you lie down to sleep, don’t worry, because massage therapy is your ultimate gateway to an optimal, deep sleep. But remember, it’s not the number of hours of sleep that count, because according to a recent study, the genes of a person determines how many hours of sleep they may require to fully restore their body’s energy. However, until we don’t find more evidence to corroborate on the results of the preceding study, we would continue suggesting eight hours of sleep to be optimal sleep hours.
Massage therapy could help you in different ways. It could relieve you off stress-related insomnia, or other conditions like headaches, nerve pains, digestive disorders, soft tissue sprains, and spot injuries that could be putting you off some quality sleep.
How Massage therapy could improve sleep therapy?
Most of us believe that massage is a luxury, because it makes us feel ecstatic and relaxed, but according to the findings of the American Massage Therapy Association, massage therapy could help lower down the stress hormone cortisol in the body which is the leading reason why some of us stay awake for hours even after going to bed.
On the other hand, when your body undergoes a massage, it could lead to an improved levels of serotonin neuro-hormone in the body that’s responsible for lowering depression and stabilizing mood. Then, massage therapy is also associated with improving melatonin (sleep-inducing hormone) levels in the body.
Additionally, body massage is also associated with increasing delta waves in the body, which are responsible for inducing deep sleep. So you wouldn’t only sleep deep but quicker too.
If you are really tired of spending loads of time on bed just waiting for your body to go into subconscious, it’s time that you don’t take massage as a one-time treat for your body. Regular massage could lead to some great benefits in your life, most importantly, through better sleep.
