Why Are Top-Level Executives Looking at Massage Therapy as a Necessity?
Massage used to be regarded as more of a luxury service, but today, some of the top business leaders revere massage and consider it a necessity. The reason for this is that massage is — inherently — relaxing. It lowers stress levels, calms blood circulation, and allows the mind the freedom to focus.
“[...]many executives are changing their mindset from thinking of massage as a nice treat to thinking of massage as an essential item in their routine that helps them perform at the top of their game,” writes Raquel Baldelomar, contributing writer for Forbes.
5 Reasons Why Massage Therapy is Important for Top-Level Executives
1. Massage can help spark creative ideas
The stress of daily life can take a toll on the creative juices needed to fuel your business. Taking a break to let your mind relax can have a dramatically beneficial effect.
2. Massage can help reduce pain and even boost your immune system
It’s been proven that massage helps to promote the growth of white blood cells, which help fight disease.
“Some studies have also found that massage can help people suffering from anxiety, headaches, digestive disorders, sports injuries, joint pain, fibromyalgia and lower back pain,” Baldelomar writes.
3. Massage can help increase your productivity
Massage therapy has been proven to increase brain-power and productivity.
“That may explain why roughly 11% companies offered workplace massages to employees in 2015 and 3% of companies planned to add corporate massage in the next 12 months, according to a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management,” she writes.
4. Massage can help you sleep better
Studies have proven that regular massage therapy promotes deep sleep, which is the restorative stage of the sleep cycle.
5. Massage can reduce stress symptoms
We all know that regular massage therapy helps to reduce stress, but the reason for that is that massage therapy reduces cortisol: a major stress hormone.
