Massage Chairs, Good For Body and Mind
Massage can ease neck and shoulder tension, relieve pain, and improve muscle recovery after exercise. That is all wonderful for the body, but did you know massage is also therapeutic for the mind?
What Are the Mental Benefits of Massage?
The power of touch is an amazing thing. State-of-the-art massage chairs, a masseuse, or even a loved one rubbing your shoulders not only releases tension but is also emotionally beneficial for fighting stress.
In today’s world filled with anxiety and pressure, making time for yourself is more important than ever. The personal aspect of owning a high-end massage chair is time spent focusing on what your body and mind needs. You choose the time and space most comfortable, and with the release of shoulder, back, and foot pain those pesky thoughts start to dissolve, leaving you in a peaceful “meditative” state.
Wikipedia defines meditation as a practice where an individual focuses their mind on a particular object, thought or activity to achieve a mentally clear and calm state. It goes on to say meditation can be used to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, while sitting, repeating a mantra, and closing the eyes in a quiet environment.
This is what is so appealing about massage chair technology. Real emotional and physical relief can be achieved in the comfort of your home.
Quiet Your Mind
Learning how to quiet our brains from all of the incoming stimuli that can trigger our natural “fight or flight” response is critical. Calming what some psychologists call “monkey mind,” the process of our brains processing all of the incoming stimulation, can be accomplished through massage therapy.
Whether your worries are financial, work-related, or over relationships often leads to unhealthy stress that can cause physical pain. Usually, women hold their anxiety in the shoulders and neck, men in their lower back. This is where massage really helps the body and mind. Spending time in a massage chair can not only relieve physical ailments, but can release mental tension buildup.
When you consider your next massage think about the mind-body connection. How relaxing not only helps heal your aching neck or throbbing feet, it stills the mind at the same time.
