By Amanda J Hales

The benefits of massage have been known for centuries. Not only does a massage calm you but it also helps to lower anxiety, reduce headaches and help injuries heal. It is something that can be done at any age, with some practitioners saying that the younger the better to start.

Baby massage is something that is taught at a lot of community centers around the country. Bonding with your baby through touch is a wonderful thing but baby can also benefit from a professional massage as well. Just like with adults, a massage can help blood circulation and can help with digestive disorders that may be associated with croup and other baby aliments. The soothing music and light touch can help baby with sleeping issues too, and relaxation of course is something that come with massage no matter what age you are!

Though the teen years and into young adulthood, a massage can help with sports injuries, soft tissue injuries and the usual bumps and bruises that are associated with being a kid. Again, it is a safe and secure place to relax and release tension,speeding the healing process of your body at the same time.

If you are an adult you know all too well the stresses and strains of every day life. There is always something to do or so it seems, but when you are having a massage, life can be put on hold for an hour and you can relax and let someone pamper you for a change. Massages help with headaches, relieve some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia and can help with insomnia.

As we age we get more aches and pains and for some, arthritis has set in or an injury has slowed us down. It's never too late, however, to take care of those aching muscles, as regular massage will keep your blood flowing, help with the daily aches and pains and make you feel more relaxed.

Since massage therapy has been around for centuries, we know a lot about the benefits and of course the risks that are associated with it. It is a safe practice for any age to reap the rewards but like with all things, it's best to ask a doctor if your particular ailment will be helped or hindered by massage. For most of us, it is a nice addition to medical treatment and one that has all sorts of advantages for our bodies.
