Besides offering quick relief and relaxation, massage therapy also has many long-term benefits that cannot be underestimated. One of them being, help in healthy circulation in blood and lymph flow. 

Improved blood and lymph flow in the body is part of the snowball effect of a regular massage. Virtue Massage is an expert in deep tissue massage. It helps blood to flow to the injured muscles and organs, which further is a catalyst to faster healing. Besides, the application of pressure on the various parts of the body encourages lymph flow and also helps in eliminating lactic acid in these areas.

6. Better Sleep 

Do you work till late hours? Are you binge-watching an entire season of the latest show on Netflix? Or do you suffer from insomnia? All these can lead to headaches, body pain, stress and bad mood. It is so necessary to get an adequate amount of sleep. Massage therapies may help improve sleep in two ways - by alleviating stress and by managing pain and tension caused by stress or injury. 

  • Stress is known to affect sleep. You can get a better shut eye through massage therapies. Massage reduces stress by decreasing cortisol (a stress hormone) and increasing serotonin and dopamine (neurotransmitters that help to stabilize mood). Opting for a regular massage helps to decrease stress and promote relaxation. This in return may help you sleep better. 
  • Massage may help with sleep by managing pain and tension caused by stress or injury. Pain and sleep loss can exacerbate one another leading to a vicious cycle. A lack of sleep can worsen pain, while pain itself can make it difficult to find a comfortable enough position to fall asleep. Massages helps eliminate any physical pain, keeps your mind calm and body relaxed which are necessary to get a good sleep.
