How Massage Therapy Helps You Sleep Better At Night

With approximately 70 million people being affected everyday by some sort of sleep dysfunction, it would make sense that it should be front of mind to find a way to get better quality sleep and more rest. After all, if we don’t get enough of that precious shut eye, it can lead to multiple health problems – both physically and mentally.

While everyone will require different amounts of sleep in order to function appropriately, most adults need to aim for 7-9 hours to thrive successfully. However, many people are not reaching their hourly sleep goals necessary to be productive and healthy, and many suffer from different detrimental sleep disorders – including insomnia.

Instead of lying in bed each night watching the minutes click by on a clock, there are ways that you can help your body fall asleep…and one of those is through getting a massage. Don’t just consider a massage to be a pampering session, though. When you’ve got someone manually manipulating your muscles, two things tend to happen: one, your body automatically relaxes, which makes the nervous system stop moving so quickly. Two, there are physical responses within the body, including a decrease in blood pressure, pain, and stress, and an increase in the production of serotonin, which helps you to relax.
