Our minds and bodies are vastly interconnected, and our physical health and mental health are intertwined in a complex mind-body connection. What we feel physically, we may hold onto in emotional ways, and what we feel emotionally may impact our bodies in a physical way. When starting your journey towards improved mental wellness, communication through counseling therapy can help you work through the struggles of your mind as you strive to find peace in your life. In conjunction with these transformative sessions, our mental health can also be heavily influenced through our physical bodies which can be strengthened through physical forms of therapy as well. 

Massage therapy is a treatment that has been used throughout the centuries as an impactful way to reduce the physical, and even the emotional pain, that one may be feeling. Soothing and working your muscles and ligaments can help to clear your mind and break free from the stress you hold onto within your body as it connects your mind. Massage allows for a holistic perspective towards therapy as you strive to become better and live a balanced life. As a way to help you continue on your journey towards mental wholeness and peace, All About You Therapy Services offers massage therapy to aid in healing your body, mind, and soul.

Massage Therapy can help relieve both physical and emotional pain that you have been feeling.

Mental Benefits of Massage Therapy

As your body connects with your mind, the physical movements and relief that you are feeling can help release the tension and pain in your mind as well. Your overall wellbeing can be improved by taking advantage of the mental benefits that massage therapy has to offer. 

Reduces Stress and Improves Quality of Life

Stress and pain often go hand in hand, with each perpetuating the other. When someone is in pain, that person can often feel stressed. And when someone is stressed, that can lead to chronic pain. Massage therapy has been found to improve individuals’ quality of life by being able to reduce the stress, and often pain, found within their body. Reducing stress helps to clear the mind and can leave you in a better mental state to confront and overcome any challenges you may be facing. While it may not eradicate all the pain, emotional or physical, that you are experiencing, massage therapy can help to alleviate these symptoms which will leave you in an improved mental state. 

Enhances Relaxation

Even some of the shortest massages have been known to help slow down your heart rate and reduce your blood pressure. When these physical aspects of your body are reduced, it allows the anxiety and the stress in your mind to decrease. Depression and anxiety symptoms can be triggered through elevated anxiousness and stress found within your body and mind. Massage therapy allows for relaxation to impactfully and purposefully occur to help reduce these unfavorable but likely causes of anxiety and depression. 

Improves Sleep Patterns

Mental wellness thrives in an environment that has been well rested. It is vital for you to have and implement healthy sleep patterns in order to improve your mental health each day. When you struggle with sleeping, it can make different mental conditions worse and make it more difficult to achieve the peace you are looking for. With the reduced tension and stress in your body and mind, it can allow your body to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep. When your brain has time to rest, it rejuvenates and recovers which promotes cognitive health, emotional regulation, and mental stability. 

Increases Serotonin and Dopamine Levels 

When massage is utilized to relax and reduce muscle tension, it releases endorphins throughout your body. These natural painkillers fill your body with the feel-good chemicals of serotonin and dopamine that can boost your mood and energy levels. Massage has also been found to reduce the stress hormone of cortisol as well. When cortisol is found in excessive amounts it leads to numerous mental health challenges such as anxiety or depression. Boosting the natural chemicals of serotonin and dopamine in your body is a vital part of improving your mental wellness and massage therapy is a great way to increase these transformative levels within your body to be able to improve your mind.

You can get help.
