The Types Of People That Benefit From Massages
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Centuries of investigation have attested to the benefits of massages. At present, however, the busy lifestyle of most people seems to undermine the importance of body rubdowns. Eight particular types of people are pinpointed to benefit most from massages. A description of each is given below.

Cancer patients. Patients in various stages of cancer encounter a roller coaster of emotions and physical changes. These transitions are brought by the intensity of treatments that they receive in order to combat the spreading cancer cells in their body. While chemotherapy and stem cell treatments are being used to address this, massage is proven to lessen the emotional disturbances experienced by these people. Massage can also help cancer patients maintain a more positive outlook towards their fast healing.

Beauty-conscious individuals. Make-ups and body creams are not the only materials that women can use to beautify their faces, simple stimulations of the face and scalp can also result to more supple skin and vibrant hair strands. This will happen because of the increased blood flow that was promoted by massage. The lymphatic system will also work more efficiently in flushing out harmful toxins if frequent prodding will be done.

Students preparing for exams. Mental alertness and the ability to tap one’s latent memories can be improved by frequent massages as well as memory retention and comprehension. These positive effects of body and head massages on boosting human brain power will definitely benefit students who are about to take national standard exams or university admission tests.

PMS-sufferers. Monthly ovulation is important in ensuring the health of the reproductive system. However, the entire process puts women in a regular cycle of bloating, breast tenderness, mood swings, and dysmenorrhoea which sometimes hamper their proper functioning. To lessen these symptoms, experts suggest weekly massage on the abdomen and leg area.

Pregnant women. Some women report severe headaches and migraines during the first trimester of their pregnancy. Unfortunately, the sensitivity of the state of these ladies prevents doctors from recommending pain killers and other related medications. Pre natal massage, therefore, is the best option that can be used by pregnant ladies in controlling headaches since studies have attested to the ability of massages in reducing the severity of this condition.

Graveyard workers. Various industries today operate 24/7. This means that many employees have also engaged themselves in night-shift duties. While it is true that a graveyard schedule may generate higher income due to night differentials, the long-term effect of sleep deprivation and razed circadian rhythm can never be compensated. To aid these workers, scientists recommend weekly to bi-monthly massages to allow the body to reset itself.

Sickly neighbour. Massages can also help in strengthening the immune system of a person. This is supported by laboratory observations where the production of white blood cells was greater for people who regularly received rubdowns. White blood cells are considered to be the soldiers of the immune system since they attack foreign organisms like bacteria and viruses in the body.

Hospitalized people. People who have recently been admitted in hospitals still need sufficient care and attention in order to prevent relapses. Back pains due to prolonged bed stay, anxiety and depression are identified to be precursors of relapses in hospitalized and post-delivery patients. Post natal massage, back massage and whole body rubdown are recommended by doctors to prevent these symptoms.
