Benefits of Massage

Over at eMaxHealth they wrote a piece of the benefits of receiving a professional massage…

Here’s some take-away benefits:

  • massage has been documented back to 2700 B.C.
  • a good massage can alleviate back pain
  •  enhance immune system
  • exercise weak muscles
  • increase flexibility
  • lessen depression
  • improve circulation
  • relieve tension
  • increase energy

The article also describes different massage techniques. Although it seems to try to sell some kind of automatic massager, which I haven’t really made good experiences with myself.
