When you have a pain in the neck (or back, or shoulder, or hips). Massage is literally a painkiller. In one study, when neuroscientists compared brain activity of people undergoing different touch-treatments, bare-handed massages activated the same part of the brain that is activated by opioid painkillers such as codeine.Massages help loosen knots and clenched up parts of your body/muscles.
When you are constantly getting symptoms of depression or sadness. Then you should totally get a massage. If you are constantly feeling withdrawn, sad or emotionally dejected, then it's good to take a time out and get a massage. Massage has been shown to improve mood and reduce depression, in those with chronic pain, tension-type headaches, pregnant women and women with premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
When you feel the need to boost your immunity. Massage doesn't just get your blood flowing – it actually helps your blood's composition for the better. Getting a good massage gives you improved levels of blood proteins that go a long way in protecting your body from tumors, viral infections.
