Long-Known Benefits of Massage

Massage therapy has been an integral part of Indian culture for more than 5000 years. Indians traditionally practiced the holistic” Ayurveda” healthcare system. Interestingly, massage played a central part in that system. It quickly became evident that massage therapy brought a host of benefits to anyone receiving it. Thus, it spread rapidly in both India and other parts of Asia. However, modern research can give us more clear-cut reasons as to why massage is preferred by so many. Massage improves the body’s circulation. Also, it helps loosen the body’s muscles and joints. This allows the body to prepare for activity or exercise. In addition, it boosts movement and flexibility.

Massage and Dance

Any Vancouver resident or visitor looking to try their hand at Bhangra dancing next week should consider getting a massage beforehand. For one thing,  massage prevents injury by loosening the muscles. What’s more, it makes you more flexible. Then, you can follow in the elaborate Punjabi dancing customs. While you’re at it, you might as well make sure to receive a massage afterward as well. This is because Bhangra or other forms of dancing can cause deep tissue and soft tissue tension. Massage therapy helps reduce this, naturally stretches your muscles, and even improves your posture following a dancing session. It is, therefore, an excellent way to make sure that you won’t hurt yourself while dancing. As a bonus, it’s a great way to guarantee that you will be as graceful as possible doing it.
