👍TOP 6 REASON PEOPLE DOING MASSAGE!!👍
This first reason comes to mind for most of us. People want to relax, feel good and pamper themselves, even if there is nothing wrong with them.
That’s how most spas make their money. They cater to people who love some luxury and indulgence in a beautiful and relaxing environment.
2. Stress relief
At this point there is a problem to deal with – stress. Massage can be one of the best ways to relieve this.
Actually the results of a good massage session can be amazingly effective when it comes to relieving stress.
It works very well and there are no potentially negative side effects as with pharmaceutical solutions.
3. Improving a condition
People who suffer from stiffness and pain can often get significant benefits from massage.
In most cases a stiff neck is better treated with a good massage than with muscle relaxants.
Some modalities like Thai Massage are especially effective when it comes to dealing with stiffness and limited range of motion since they incorporate stretching into the therapy.
4. Dealing with a serious health issue
I know – massage therapists cannot claim to cure anything. But often regular massage treatments can have a very beneficial effect on some serious and chronic diseases. I have met many massage clients who can attest to this fact.
In Thailand the government protects the status of Thai Massage. Its knowledge is engraved in the walls of the famous Wat Pho temple in Bangkok.
We also have to remember that massage has been used in many countries, especially in Asia, as an important way to improve people’s health for hundreds and even thousands of years.
Massage in Asia has more often than not been a way to deal with health issues, and not just a way to relax and pamper yourself.
To this day here in Thailand pretty much every village has a resident massage therapist. He or she works on people who have problems, in conditions which are a very different from luxurious spa settings, meaning extremely simple, like a straw mat on the floor.
The wide availability of massage as a luxury to pamper yourself is a fairly recent phenomenon which had been previously reserved for a few wealthy and privileged ones.
5. Health maintenance
The health benefits of massage have nowadays been amply documented. Many people realize that a regular routine of massage sessions can play an important role in maintaining their health.
Some obvious examples are professional athletes or dancers. But even people who work on computers all day long can counteract potentially serious trouble with hands, shoulders, neck and back through regular massage sessions.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as type of deep-tissue massage!
