We all love to have a massage, well I know I certainly do. Whether its a full body massage by a masseuse for a back massage there is just something about them that makes us all feel great afterwards. The only problem with massages is getting someone to give you one! If like me you are fed up with paying for massages how about you look at a neck and shoulder massager that you can use at home? That's what I use now, I use a neck and shoulder massager at home to ease my knots and muscle pains from working in the office chair all day.
The great thing about the neck and shoulder massager is you can also target different areas of your body. Using the straps of the massager I like to move it down to my lower back for a kneading massage. A lower back massage can be fantastic after a long commute home from the office. The heat option is an added bonus too if you can get a model that offers this, ours does.
In this short article I am going to look at a couple of benefits of using a neck and shoulder massager.
Reduce stress and anxiety
Some people think its just your body that benefits from massages but I also believe it reduces stress and anxiety. I for one not only feel my body feels great after a massage but my mood is also definitely improved. We all have busy lives and stress can come from many places, whether is be home, work or relationships. Its important to look after yourself and reducing stress should be a priority. A massage could be a very pleasurable option that you may not have discovered before, give it a go and see for yourself.
Aids sore muscles
Sore muscles after exercise or a workout can be very common issue, the muscles can be sore or inflamed from pushing the body to hard. Sometimes we can push ourselves too far outside our comfort zone and only discover the repercussions the next morning. Having a massage on the targeted area can bring blood flow to the area and help improve the recovery process. You should only apply gentle pressure when massaging the affected area to ensure you don't hurt yourself further.
