We often underestimate the role a good night’s sleep plays in our lives. Growing up, we think it’s “cool” to stay up late and sleep as less as possible. But is it really?
A good night’s sleep is very important to your body as it refreshes your mind and keeps you alert all day. The repercussions of not getting good sleep can be very disturbing during the day, like- irritability, lack of concentration, feeling stressful, giddiness, nausea, headache etc.
7-8 hours of sleep is generally considered to be sufficient to boost your brain cells for the next bright day
According to Hinterland Chiropractic
"Massage therapy provides us with the missing relaxation our body needs on a daily basis. Our muscles get stressed and often contracted and pulled in unusual ways. Massage therapy helps to relax those muscles and that plays an important part during sleep. People who suffer from sleeping disorders do not get sufficient rest even though some manage to get some sleep. The relaxation part remains lacking.
Massage causes releasing of relaxing hormones in our body which induces sleep and reduces the stress hormone called cortisol. The chemistry of the brain and muscles get triggered positively and the body gets more leaned towards getting a good sleep with proper relaxation. Serotonin and Melatonin are two hormones which are very much required for getting a good sleep and massage therapy improves the secretion of these hormones by taking the person to a deep state of relaxation. This helps the circadian rhythms to get reset. Circadian rhythms can also be referred as the biological clocks any living organism goes through in a 24 hour circle."
