Insomnia? Massage Can Help

What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a condition in which, for a variety of reasons, a person is unable to get sufficient restorative sleep. It may be difficult for a you to fall asleep or sleep may be interrupted by bouts of sleeplessness.

Whatever the pattern, it can be debilitating. A constant and consistent sleep schedule is key to a healthy life style.

Who Gets Insomnia?

Insomnia can affect anyone, including children, but studies have been done on adults. Men generally have insomnia more often than women, and people over 65 years old are especially prone to this problem.

Some of the causes of sleeplessness are usually very predictable. The human body goes through many stressors each day. Stress and anxiety and depression are contributors to rest free nights. Some of the signs and symptoms include fatigue, reduced ability to focus on tasks, memory loss and impaired hearing.

How Massage Can Help

Massage is very indicated for a person experiencing insomnia. One of the finest gifts a therapist can give a client is a good night’s sleep.

Massages services such as Swedish, Hydrotherm, and deep tissue can restore balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. Combining massage with heat and aromas, such as lavender, can offset medications and sleep-aids.
