Benefits of a 90-Minute Massage
Some people assume that massage therapy is only beneficial if you have it done on a regular basis but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Just a single 90-minute massage session can have a profound impact on your physical and mental well-being. A skilled massage therapist can identify and target “problem areas” within your body, kneading out myofascial trigger points (for example, muscle knots) while leaving you feeling fresh and rejuvenated.
A 90-minute massage is the perfect way to relieve stress. According to the American Institute of Stress, approximately 3 out of 4 doctor visits are related to stress. Stress increases the risk of diabetes and heart disease, suppresses the immune system, promotes insomnia, causes digestive disorders, and much more.
While there’s no way to completely avoid stress, you can “reset” your body and mind with a 90-minute massage. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine (2008)found massage therapy to offer”immediate beneficial effects on anxiety-related measures and may be a useful de-escalating tool for reducing stress and anxiety in acutely hospitalized psychiatric patients.”
Improves Blood Flow
Another benefit of a 90-minute massage is improved blood flow and circulation. By kneading out muscle knots, a massage therapist will encourage blood flow to the affected area, which translates into faster muscle recovery and healing times while also protecting against pain and inflammation. A client will experience improved circulation within just minutes of receiving a massage, making this a simple yet highly effective way to boost blood flow within the body.
Most people will agree that 90 minutes is the perfect amount of time for a massage. It allows clients to receive a thorough massage, targeting all problem areas, but not forcing them to invest a significant part of their day. A professional massage therapist can use this hour-and-a-half time frame to massage the client’s entire body.
To make the most of your 90-minute treatment , during consultation discuss with your therapist any issues you have (for example, aches, pain, and tension) so they can be targeted during the session. Therapists can often find problem areas on their own, but informing them will make the process easier and more pleasant.
