Massage is often thought of as something you need two people for, however massage on yourself is also beneficial and can be done in odd moments during the day. Without consciously realising it, every time you rub a tight muscle or tense spot on your shoulder or forehead, for example, you are giving yourself a mini-massage.
Self-massage is good and easy way to relax your muscles yourself in the comfort of your own environment.
You can learn to massage yourself with your hands, a golf ball, or a foam roller. It can be an effective way to improve your overall wellbeing.
As with massage, self-massage works on points in your muscles to help your muscles to relax, releasing the tension you may be experiencing.
Some of the benefits of self-massage:
- Increased circulation to the nerve endings
- Calming for the nerves
- Lubricating the joints
- Increased mental clarity
- Improved elimination of toxins from the body
- Softer, smoother skin
- Improving energy levels
- Better, deeper sleep at night
