Get off your feet and into one of the massage chairs at Hybrid Recovery. But while you’re there relaxing, rest assured, you’re helping your body recover and perform better. The benefits of massage go above and beyond relaxation to actually improve or even eliminate health problems. A study conducted in 2003 showed that massage reduced back pain and the need for painkillers by 36%. More than one study has shown that headaches also respond to massage therapy. For many people, massage has been proven to reduce the number of migraines suffered and improve sleep.
At Hybrid Recovery, we utilize massage chairs to help regulate control of the autonomic nervous system. We encourage our clients to simply relax and take big belly (diaphragmatic) breaths while in our massage chairs. That may seem like a luxury, but one of the biggest factors in recovering and health in general is the ability to rest and breathe properly. Regularly breathing and taking time to relax helps our body switch from a sympathetic state to a parasympathetic state and boosts recovery.
