How Massage Can Help Improve Posture

Everyone loves a good massage. It’s great for the circulation, helps speed recovery from certain types of injury, and it just feels good. But massage therapy can do so much more. It can help us to have better posture. Good posture is so important for our overall health. Over time, bad posture can lead to all manner of problems that can impede us in our daily lives and lead to a number of unpleasant spinal conditions. Here are some of the ways massage can help us to maintain better posture.

Better Flexibility

Massage therapy can help to keep the muscles and ligaments nice and limber. It also can help to keep fascia tissues from tightening down and making it hard to hold our bodies correctly. Better flexibility means greater comfort in general, and when you’re more comfortable, it’s much easier to maintain good posture.

Feeling Better & Posture

Getting a massage is a good way boost your mood. Unlike other things you could spend your money on, a massage actually makes you feel better when you’re done. Going out for a nice massage can make you feel more successful, having the ability to afford a massage can boost your confidence. When we feel more confident, we tend to have better posture, and when we have better posture our bodies stop releasing stress hormones and begin to release endorphins instead.

A Necessity for Office Workers

If you have to do a lot of sitting at work, you might think you have it easy- but people who spend eight hours a day not in motion are at a higher risk for all kinds of illnesses- including those that stem from poor posture. Going out for a massage is a great way to break up a sedentary lifestyle. Add your massage onto the end of a workout for some quality time spent not sitting down.

Massage therapy is one of the best things you can do for your overall health, and it’s an excellent addition to any self-care routine.
