Wellness Benefits of Massage - Balik Kampung Spa Treatment and Massage

Full body massage can produce multiple benefits for your health. These benefits go far beyond an hour spent in relaxing quietly, escaping the day. An increasing amount of evidence indicates that stress and tension form the root causes of many diseases and illnesses. Hence, if you able to find ways to alleviate or relieve your stress, you are preventing health problems from emerging or becoming worse.

Here are a few disorders that benefit from regular full body massage:

  1. Depression
  2. Infertility
  3. Eating disorders
  4. Post-operative recovery
  5. Autism
  6. Immune-suppressed systems
  7. Diabetes
  8. High blood pressure
  9. Sleep disorders
  10. Cancer related fatigue
  11. Low back pain
  12. Spinal cord injuries

Going for a full body massage on a regular basis is one excellent way to help you fight off tensions. Full body massage stimulates the production of endorphins that promotes relaxation and drowsiness. It helps to improve blood circulation so blood becomes more easily transportable to the vital organs in your body. This is vital for the smooth functioning of your internal body parts. In addition, when blood is supplied to areas that have been injured before, repair and renewal of cells and tissues take place more easily. Combined with conventional medicine and other therapies, repeat sessions of full body massage can do much to accelerate your recovery.

Other than improved blood circulation, here are other benefits that you can expect to experience from a full body massage.

  1. Stimulated lymph system
  2. Stimulated immune system
  3. Relaxed muscles
  4. Reduced cramps
  5. Increased flexibility
  6. Reduced recovery time
  7. Released endorphins
  8. Reduced post-operative scar tissue and edema
  9. Reduced migraine pain
  10. Improved range of motion
  11. Reduced depression
  12. Shortened labor and delivery in expectant mothers

When you choose full body massage, you choose a non-invasive procedure. For full body massage, your head to your toes and feet are massaged both front and back. A variety of strokes that includes kneading, pulling, percussion, and gliding strokes are used on various parts of the body. Full massage therapy, which is relatively safe, can be a complementary treatment to other medical treatments. However, those with certain illnesses should avoid the treatment. These include phlebitis, certain cancers, certain heart conditions, certain skin problems, and contagious diseases. To be absolutely sure, check with your doctor first if you are chronically ill.

Otherwise, enjoy on a regular basis with Balik Kampung!
