NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Spa owner, Stephen Dowicz, explains why getting massages regularly is great for the body.

Those who indulge in massages know how wonderfully relaxing they are, and can leave one feeling completely rejuvenated. However, many may not realize that massages can also yield a myriad of emotional and physical benefits—if done regularly. Here are a few.

Massage promotes pain relief. People who get regular massages may not need to take as much pain medication for body aches. The massage therapist can focus on stiff, achy muscles as well as problem areas. The massage will loosen muscles and increase blood circulation—temporarily relieving pain from arthritis, injuries, and other afflictions.

Massage assists with stress management. Regular massage has been known to ease stress and manage depression and/or anxiety, according to Stephen M. Dowicz. Since stress is typically caused by feeling overwhelmed and overworked by trying to balance work, home, and family, scheduling "me-time" is an effective stress-management technique. Focus on releasing negative thoughts during the session can further improve one's state of mind.

Massage fosters immune system support. Massages support immune system function and reduce hormones related to stress that can lower immunity. They also ease anxiety and stress, which will boost the body's white blood cell count.

Massage improves sleep. Massage supports relaxation and sleep in those who have sleep disorders. Often those who experience sleep interruption or insomnia are stressed, and getting a massage leaves one feeling completely relaxed and at ease. It can also help those undergoing chemotherapy and radiation unwind and sleep better.

Massage relieves headaches. Regular massage will lessen the severity—and frequency—of tension headaches.

Massage enhances posture. There are many people that experience postural issues that present in the neck and shoulders. Plus, those who work in an office and sit at a desk for a majority of their day can also experience weakness and/or pain in the lower back and the gluteal muscles. Regular message can counteract the negative effects associated with sitting.

Massage provides relief from fibromyalgia. Massage therapy can ease the pain of fibromyalgia by lowering stress hormones, depression, and anxiety.
