Treating yourself to a professional massage at Abilene Plastic Surgery & MedSpa is a clinically-proven tool for beating stress back into submission and reclaiming your sense of serenity.
In case you need more inspiration, here are some of the amazing, even surprising, health benefits of professional massage therapy:
Reduced anxiety and depression
As you relax on our special massage bed, our licensed massage therapist will carefully knead your muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues, applying pressure and other proven techniques to gently work out tension. While the physical benefits of massage seem obvious, what’s happening inside of you is equally beneficial, as massage prompts your body to release endorphins, your brain’s feel-good chemicals, helping you feel a sense of wellbeing or calm.
Massage therapy is also proven to reduce the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline, which can impair the immune system when they remain in the body at chronically high levels. Undergoing periodic massage therapy helps to combat chronic stress, helping to bolster your body’s immune response.
Improved skin tone
Go for the glow! Therapeutic massage also boosts blood flow, helping to impart a rosy glow to your skin.
Stimulation of your lymphatic system (better energy, sleep and more!)
Your lymphatic system helps remove toxins and waste from your body tissues. It relies on smooth muscles to transport fluid through your lymph vessels. Sometimes, due to certain health conditions, lymph fluid can build up, causing swelling and other ailments. Lymphatic massage techniques are clinically proven to help encourage the flow of lymphatic fluids, improving circulation and resulting in improved energy, reduced swelling, better sleep, improved arthritis and digestion, reduced migraines and more. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia and other conditions.
To help your body enjoy the maximum health benefits of massage, be sure to drink plenty of water, stay physically active and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables while limiting processed foods.
