Why are Massages so important?

By Eyn C. Fessenden

As a Massage therapist I get asked by people who’ve never had one, Why are Massages so important?

-Well here’s some of my answers –

1. You’ll always feel a difference after having a Massage.

2. It effects the mind as well as the body.

3. It helps with your parasympathetic nervous system or rest and digest.

4. It’s helped some of my clients sleep better.

5. It’s really good for migraines.

6. Your body is the only one you have, shouldn’t you take care of it.

7. It helps so much with injuries after an accident.

8. Touch is touch and it helps so much lol. No realty it does!


There are studies showing that touch signals safety and trust, it soothes. Basic warm touch calms cardiovascular stress. It activates the body’s vagus nerve, which is intimately involved with our compassionate response, and a simple touch can trigger release of oxytocin, aka “the love hormone.”Sep 29, 2010 from https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/hands_on_research   Of which will post on a future date it self.

9. It great for your over all health!

10. Massage is like exercise.

Baldwin explained that massage allows for “more blood flow to the area” and over time a muscle “can stretch a little further.” Muscles that have been loosened after a massage — thanks to increased blood flow — can also make stretching during your workout more fluid.Aug 30, 2018 from http://www.healthline.com

Consider getting a massage today.
