6 Benefits of a Hot Stone Massage Calgary
Massages are often classified as alternative medicine. They’re becoming increasingly popular as a supplemental therapy for a variety of ailments. The following are some of the benefits of obtaining a hot stone massage:
1. Assists in the relief of muscle tension and discomfort
Heat has been used to relieve muscle tension and discomfort for a long time. It aids in the improvement of blood flow to the affected area. Muscle spasms may be reduced, and flexibility and range of motion may be improved. Inflammation can be relieved by cold therapy. Alternating heat and cold stones during your hot stone massage calgary may be beneficial depending on your conditions.
2. Assists in the reduction of stress and anxiety
“Massage treatment can be useful for stress alleviation,” according to the American Massage Therapy Association. Their claim is backed up by research. A ten-minute massage boosted cardiovascular responses such as stroke volume, according to a 2001 study. According to a 1997 study, 15-minute onsite chair massages in the office lowered stress much more than a 15-minute break without massage.
According to a 2015 study
After having post-operative massage, those who had abdominal colorectal surgery reported less discomfort, stress, and anxiety, according to Trusted Source.
3. Helps you sleep
Massage may be an alternative to sleeping drugs in individuals with insomnia, according to a 2006 research review. Back massage was found to help with relaxation and sleep in studies. Infants with sleep issues who received a 15-minute massage from their parents fell asleep faster, according to a 2001 research. Upon awakening, they were also more alert, active, and upbeat. Massage is supposed to help you get more restful sleep, while the reason for this is unknown.
4. May aid in the relief of autoimmune disease symptoms
Fibromyalgia and other painful diseases may benefit from hot stone massage. Fibromyalgia is a persistent pain condition that affects the entire body. People with fibromyalgia who got a 30-minute massage slept longer, had fewer trigger points, and had lower levels of substance P (a substance involved in transmitting pain signals) than those who got relaxation therapy, according to a 2002 study. Massage, on the other hand, needs further investigation before it becomes a conventional fibromyalgia treatment.
People with rheumatoid arthritis may benefit from a moderate-pressure massage, such as hot stone massage, according to a 2013 studyTrusted Source. After one month of massage therapy, study participants reported less pain, improved grip strength, and increased range of motion.
5. May aid in the reduction of cancer symptoms
In a three-year study published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management, 1,290 persons with cancer were studied to see how massage influenced their pain, exhaustion, stress and anxiety, nausea, and depression. Massage, particularly Swedish massage, alleviated cancer symptoms in the trial, even in patients with severe symptoms. Researchers feel that the soothing effect of human contact was a factor.
6. It has the potential to improve immunity.
Massage may help to enhance your immune system. A single session of Swedish massage therapy has a beneficial and immediate impact on immunity, according to a 2010 study. Arginine-vasopressin, a hormone that helps control blood pressure and water retention, was found to be lower in blood samples obtained before and after the massage.
