Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Modern man is caught up in a rat race with his fellow man from the day he is born till the day he dies, stuck in an endless loop of achieving milestones and working very hard to make it to the top. In this race, we forget to nurture the spiritual and mental part of our personality and consequently, the stress piles on to each other, ready to implode any moment. When it does implode, it takes a toll on your physical and mental health. This article discusses how massage therapy has been brought back from the recesses of history and how its benefits are being proven scientifically.

A very common place phrase heard these days is “I’m so stressed out.” This idea of being ‘stressed out’ or being ‘anxious’ has become second nature to us; half the time we don’t even realize how tired or tense we are until our bodies actually relax in bed. This is all due to a rigorous, tension-wrought, activity filled lifestyle that focuses on increasing human productivity and not enough on human restoration in terms of physical and mental health. One of the biggest reasons for mental and biological illnesses is solely the pressure of work or a certain lifestyle that is taking more from you than your body can give. This physical stress then begins to manifest itself in other physiological conditions that can become chronic over time if the stress is not lessened or managed properly and this then in turn, can contribute to mental illnesses such as depression.

The phenomenon of being worked up or tense in everyday life is increasing rapidly and this is leading to many people becoming used to unhealthy lifestyles. How many people, on a daily basis, actually take some time out for themselves and really enjoy the solitude? Jumping from one commitment to another is aging us faster. Man before modernity was not used for such a sedentary, yet constantly stimulated lifestyle; while our bodies might be resting, our minds are continuously bombarded with sensory information from all ends like televisions, mobile phones, computers, etc. We do not think about restorative activities that involve physical movement.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and has the most sensitive of all receptors; a fingertip can have hundreds of receptors that respond actively to stimuli. Decades and even centuries ago, people believed in the healing power of touch and used this to restore health in others’ lives. This dates as farther back as 5,000 years ago, as quoted in Hindu medicine. In the modern world, this practice is known as massage therapy and individuals are now trained in this particular mode of treatment. Massages are known to cure many illnesses from depression to heart problems to circulation issues and injuries. In metropolitan areas like the UAE, getting massages is not a problem at all; a massage in Dubai by an expert is the best thing you can imagine.

Massages work by the principle that good touch can take out the tension and stress from a body, straighten out the muscles, improve circulation and scientifically human touch releases a hormone known as Oxytocin which promotes a feeling of well-being. Many doctors and medical practitioners themselves recommend their patients to professional masseuses as a treatment plan and the results are astonishing. Imagine getting a massage in Dubai, in a luxurious spa and feel the tension drain from your tired body; you will go home feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and brand new, with a positive mental strength to take on life. Massages are not the new fad or trend that everyone will forget; they are here to stay for good and will continue to surprise us with their healing powers.
