The Importance of Consistent Massage Therapy

Perhaps you’ve recently pulled a muscle and went in for that once-a-year massage because the pain was unbearable. Or maybe you used that holiday gift card because you found it while cleaning out your junk drawer. Regardless, these are just some of the ways people receive their first and sometimes only massage. But this is often the wrong approach. To truly experience the full benefits of a massage, consistency is key. At LaVida Massage, we don’t see massage as a luxury or simple pampering. No, we know that regular massages offer psychological and physiological benefits that can significantly enhance your overall physical and mental well-being.

The Benefits of Consistent Massage Therapy

We know that regular massage therapy not only improves flexibility and range of motion but it also stimulates recovery by increasing blood flow around the muscles. In essence, regular massages promote consistent and accelerated recovery (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health).

Mental Health: The power of touch is known to improve mental wellness. While your massage therapist works on your physical wellness and range of motion, endorphins and serotonin (the feel-good hormones) are released, enhancing your mood and promoting relaxation. Remember that floating feeling after your massage? That’s those endorphins in action. Now imagine having that consistent relaxation every month.

Long-term Health and Well-being

Stress Management: Stress management is often discussed in social media, blogs, or work seminars, but what does that practice look like in our everyday lives? Regular massage sessions have similar effects to meditation, reducing your risk of stress-related health issues such as heart disease, hypertension, digestive problems, migraines, and more (American Massage Therapy Association). This isn’t a monthly relaxation getaway, but it’s practicing what many medical professionals are now preaching.

Better Sleep: If you, like 30% to 40% of the U.S. population, have trouble sleeping, consistent massage sessions may help. From anxiety to sleep apnea, many everyday inhibitors can stop you from getting your much-needed rest. By reducing stress and soothing sore muscles, your massage therapist can create the ideal biological conditions for better sleep quality (Massage Therapy Foundation).

Common Misconceptions About Massage Routines

Once Is Not Enough: Feeling better after one session doesn’t mean all your problems are solved. Our bodies are resilient and can bounce back, but if poor posture or tight muscles are consistent issues; one massage will only provide temporary relief. Consistent massages help retrain your body and reset your base level for long-term benefits.

It’s Too Expensive: While monthly or bi-weekly massages might appear costly upfront, they can offset future major expenses like surgeries or physical therapy. Consider a massage membership like an investment in your proverbial Health Savings Account. It’s a strategic financial move.
