2. It undoes the damage of sitting all day. A massage might be the most perfect cure for the harm that sitting all day causes to your body. It will help to straighten out your back and neck. Massage will decompress your spine and make you feel years younger. If you spend all day sitting in a chair, a massage is a necessity.

3. Massage is a great relaxer. You ll never feel more relaxed than you will after a good massage. It seems to squeeze all the stress out of your body and leave you feeling like a sleepy, relaxed teddy bear.

4. It increases white blood cell count. Massage has been shown in numerous medical studies to boost white cell count. It boosts your immune system and reduces the likelihood of becoming sick.

5. Massage enhances focus. Relaxation and focus are related. Massage has the ability to clear your mind and allow you to focus more intently. Those that struggle to focus on a task often find that massage is helpful in this regard.

6. Reduced depression symptoms. Again, no one is sure why, but a regular massage helps to prevent depression. It also reduces the symptoms of depression when you’re feeling down in the dumps. If you’ve been feeling emotionally under the weather, a massage is worth a try.

7. Enhanced posture. Studies show that massage can help your posture. If you’re prone to slumping or hanging your head forward, massage might be the answer. Many people report feeling taller after a massage. This is the result of better posture.

8. Increased flexibility. Flexibility is primarily a function of nervous tension. Massage helps to lower the amount of tension in the muscle. Enhanced flexibility is the result.

However, the opposite is true. The massage itself could be painful temporarily, but you’ll feel less pain after the massage than before.

10. Injury prevention. Massage does wonderful things for your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Many professional athletes receive regular massages to help treat and prevent injuries.
