It improves  sleep

This may seem like an obvious benefit of massage, since many people feel relaxed and ready for a nap after lying on that table, but regular massage therapy can actually help you train your body to relax, even when you aren’t at the spa. Regular massage therapy is extremely beneficial, especially if someone is acutely stressed and feeling overwhelmed or isn’t sleeping.   It helps the body to learn how to remember how it feels to be relaxed and to feel less tension.

All types of massage help to lower blood pressure and heart rate, which in turn helps to reduce stress levels,  when massage helps to relieve chronic muscle pain, it allows patients to get longer uninterrupted sleep.
