How Massage Can Help Improve Sleep

It is a known fact that we spend over two-thirds of our lives sleeping. Over 40 million people suffer from long-term sleep deficiencies, and millions more experience mild to severe sleeping disorders. Medication is used in some instances to induce sleep, but over time the results are not beneficial. Nevertheless, a massage is the safest and most natural way to restore, promote and increase sleep.

Tossing and Turning

Sleep is one of those things where your body and your brain seem to get equal power to veto the decision. If you've been up for way too long and your body is dead tired, you can be three seconds from sleep, and then your brain goes "Hey wait a minute, what if that patch on the tire doesn't hold for the morning commute tomorrow!?" Likewise, no matter how drained you may feel mentally, tension in your neck can keep you up for days on end.

The Physical Toll of Stress

This is where massages come in. A massage is not just a way to treat physical discomfort, tight muscles, sore joints, it's a way to get your mind in the right place. Your whole body is plugged into your nervous system. Your brain, your spine, your muscles, it's all connected, and a deep tissue shoulder rub can do wonders for your mental state. Stress isn't just an emotional burden, it's a physical one, as well.

Certainly, massages can help to soothe a pinched nerve and other physical maladies, but simply laying down on the table and allowing yourself to relax can ease the emotional and mental burdens that keep you up at night, as well.

The physical and psychological discomforts that keep you tossing and turning are a nasty cycle. Will a massage solve every problem you're facing in life? Maybe not. But a few minutes on the table can really help to put those challenges into perspective and ensure that you wake up rested and ready to give those hurdles your best effort.
