WHY IS MASSAGE THERAPY IN LONDON MORE VITAL TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE?
The world we live in nowadays has become really hectic, we work so much and don't even notice any more symptoms of physical stress and anxiety, thus our stress levels are reaching peaks never seen before.
In US 60-90% doctor appointments are related to stress and nearly five of six leading causes of death are linked to stress. In a World Health Organization (WHO) Global Burden of Disease Survey it has been predicted that by the year 2020, stress-related mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression could become the second leading cause of death. The rise is seen especially sharp in developing countries as a result of social problems and unrest.
WHAT CAUSES STRESS?
Well, after working 8-9 hours in the office, you rush home, prepare dinner and start your bedtime routine to do it all over again. Sounds familiar? This fast-pacing rhythm of life can create a lot of mental and physical tension in a person as we forget to take those much needed moments to mentally decompress, relax and enjoy life!
Now stop for a second, take a deep breath and imagine yourself in a massage room with deemed lights, nice music and wonderful smell and have a full hour to unwind and reconnect to yourself. Doesn’t it already feel awesome? Have your shoulders already dropped an inch?
Regular massage therapy can indeed help with both your physical and mental health, reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety, enhancing your overall sense of wellbeing and help you to live in a more balanced way. Even though massage therapy such as Deep tissue massage, Lymphatic Massage London, used to be regarded as a fringe approach, nowadays it has become a much more mainstream treatment option as more and more people are appreciating its therapeutic benefits and swearing by its effectiveness.
INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH AND ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF OUR SIGNATURE DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE CITY OF LONDON
We all know how it is pleasant to have someone rubbing our back, and when you receive a treatment from a trained therapist, this won’t only be pleasant but it can have incredible physical and emotional benefits. Choosing to receive a massage should not be seen as an expense, but rather as an investment in your health and happiness. Regular massage therapy can be the first step to take care of yourself and dedicate an hour of your week for your wellbeing. It is important to schedule your “me-time” as it is important to schedule your work commitments and family duties.
In the last two decades, more and more research has been done into massage’s therapeutic effects, investigating its benefits and mechanisms, and now showing proven clinical outcomes.
A recent study found that most people investing in regular massage were doing so for a medical or stress-related reason. And a significant amount of new research suggests that regular massage therapy offers even more advantages than infrequent sessions.
If you’re not doing so already, here are more reasons you should consider adding our therapy service at our massage centres in London to your monthly calendar.
Our best massage London is the perfect post-workout therapeutic massage as it relieves instantly muscle tension. But regular deep tissue massage has tons of other benefits which include not only recover from muscle tension and prevent injury, but it can also ease stress and anxiety, improve your sleep patter and generally improve your wellbeing.
WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 BENEFITS OF REGULAR DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE THERAPY?
1. MUSCLE RELAXATION & PAIN RELIEF
Whether you are very active and sporty, or you sit at a desk all day and wonder how to get rid of that back and neck pain, our Deep tissue Massage therapy is the perfect way to relax those painful areas, providing oxygen-rich blood flow and nutrients to those sore muscles.
When you do a lot of repetitive movements and/or are not moving from your chair for a prolonged period of time, it’s natural to develop a lot of tension in your neck and back muscles, which very often lead to tension headaches and lower back pain.
In order to avoid this to occur, invest in a monthly massage which can release those tight spots while preventing any more serious conditions to occur (such as migraine or degenerative/slipped disk). Many types of massage will help you to achieve this, but for best results, we recommend trying a monthly our signature Deep Tissue Massage, and combine it with Medical Acupuncture e/o Cupping therapy London.
2. STRESS MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
Stress is a healthy response to our body, which protects us when we perceived a stressor. Even though, if this stress-response is constantly turned on, it has a very detrimental for the body as hormone levels don't return to normal and the body can’t resume its regular activities.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF STRESS?
This long-term activation of the stress-response system can increase the risk of developing numerous health problems, such as anxiety, depression, heart disease, headaches and weight gain. Therefore it is so important we all find effective ways to manage stress and can’t just leave it to chance.
The good news is that there is no need for chemicals to combat stress and feel high :-) Just get a deep tissue massage! Numerous studies, such as this 2016 Journal of Clinical Psychiatry study revealed that massage therapy releases the so-called 'feel-good’ hormones (endorphins, serotonin and dopamine) in the brain, providing an effective natural remedy to stress and anxiety.
Massage therapy doesn’t have any nasty side effects like some other medical approaches, its effects are all positive, it can clear your mind and improve your mood! It’s no wonder people who book regular massage appointments report a drastic reduction in stress.
3. FASTER RECOVERY AND REDUCED EXISTING MUSCLE SORENESS
Another of the benefits of regular massage therapy is that it speeds up recovery because it increases oxygen-rich blood flow to reach the muscles, flushing out the metabolic waste of hard exercise, delivering fresh nutrients, thus healing that area.
Regular deep tissue massage therapy can help you recover faster when you follow a strenuous fitness regime such a marathon training plan.
After you workout, it is essential that you stretch properly, but as we all know, most of us don’t spend enough time doing so and get muscles soreness and tightness. Remedial types of Massage, such as our signature deep tissue massage London is a very effective method to release all that tension, improve joint mobility and flexibility and speed up recovery time, preventing injuries to occur.
People who receive regular treatments and plan them strategically with their workout routine are able to train strenuously for events such as marathons and triathlons injury-free.
4. BOOST IMMUNITY
Massage therapy not only increases circulation, but it also promotes the better movement of lymph within the body, which is the fluid responsible for fighting infection in the body, thus strengthening our better immune system.
If this is your main concern, try our Lymphatic drainage massage London! This is a specialised type of bodywork that helps to cleanse your body’s tissues by redirecting lymph from congested tissues where it is not effectively draining, to areas of the body where it can be filtered and flushed out.
Regular lymphatic drainage massage treatments can be incredibly effective to help you during the change of seasons, after an illness or injury, or following a particularly stressful time in your life.
5. IMPROVE SLEEPING PATTERNS
If you suffer from insomnia or have a difficult time falling asleep, try to receive regular massage therapy instead of trying sleeping pills.
Massage therapy induces the relaxation response which calms your heart rate and aids in the body’s release of serotonin, that is so important for a good night of rest. And if a single massage can improve your sleep, imagine what monthly massages can do.
At A to Zen therapies we also offer Acupuncture for Sleeping problems which is the perfect combo to your regular deep tissue massage London for the best outcome and regain your energies with proper sleep.
6. SAVE YOU MONEY!
Regular massage treatments can influence greatly how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year.
Remember that just because massage feels like pampering doesn’t make it any less therapeutic; it’s rather an investment in your health and it can actually pay for itself by reducing your medical bills. It can help you prevent the costs, stress, pain, discomfort and upheaval associated with chronic health conditions such as back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, anxiety and depression.
Besides, when you commit to a regular massage treatment routine, you also save money as you can often take advantage of special discounts and promotions. At A to Zen therapies, thanks to the specialised training as well as through our own observing and experimentation, we are able to recognise a disorder, plan and deliver a personalised course of treatments, that will be uniquely tailored to suit your health concerns, schedule and lifestyle, and to provide you with the support you need on the journey to healing and self-empowerment.

HOW OFTEN SHALL YOU GET A DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE?
While we recommend a different course of treatments depending on the individual situation, here’s is a general guide to the most common conditions we treat and what we usual find most effective.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE FOR INJURY RECOVERY
If you are a fitness lover and do vigorous exercises it is likely you experience some sort of injuries every now and then as strenuous exercise puts you at a higher risk of tearing your muscles. You may have not stretched or warmed up properly or done an exercise routine incorrectly. If you injured your muscles or joints, regular massage therapy can do wonders for you. Depending on the gravity of the injury, the frequency of treatment that we would recommend may vary, but at the beginning we usually see the most results when someone commits twice a week to Deep tissue massage and/or acupuncture treatment and cupping massage for at least the first 4 weeks. We would then gradually decrease the frequency as the symptoms improve.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE FOR STRESS AND ANXIETY
If you seek help in alternative therapies such as deep tissue massage to get relief from anxiety and stress, we’d initially suggest you come to see us every week or other week. Deep tissue massage, especially when combined with our Acupuncture for Stress and Anxiety, can not only relax your muscles, but help stimulate the release of good feeling hormones, which calm you down and even help you sleep better.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE FOR GENERAL WELLBEING
Our Deep tissue massage London is a great choice to boost your mood and keep you in good health. Invest in your health with a regular deep tissue massage once a month.
