Ok when you think of a handheld massager, gamers might not be the first thing that comes to mind but it’s actually a very useful tool to have if you spend a lot of time on the computer or even hunched over console gaming.
Today’s world can be so stressful as there are always things that need our attention that we would never have worried about twenty or thirty years ago. It seems that the more our lives are made “easier” through technology the more we have to worry about. With all of this tension, it is no wonder that many seek ways to relax and unwind after a hard day of drama to get to a place where sleep comes willingly.
So this is why a lot of people turn to gaming. The thing you might not know is that long sessions of gaming, especially multi-player games or games that increase the heart rate and stress levels, can actually make you feel more tense than before you started. One of the best and healthiest ways to relax is through massage but not many people can afford to go the spa on a regular basis. And who has the time for that anyway? So you can just use a handheld massager at home and get the same benefit quickly and easily.
Let’s look at why it works.
Increases the Blood Flow
No matter what job you do for a living, there is always a lack of blood flow to a certain area of your body while you are completing your tasks. This is what makes that part of the body sore at the end of the day. Massaging the body increases the blood flow and allows the muscles to relax and ease up so that these areas are no long sore. One of the areas of the body that take on the most stress is the neck and back. A handheld neck and back massager is the perfect tool to work out the stress in this area of the body and what’s even more important is that you don’t need another person to do anything.
Pain Relief from an Injury
There may also be times when you injure a muscle mass in your body and you want to aid in the healing process. Not everyone wants or can take pills to relieve the pain when they have to drive to work or to pick up the children. Massage is an all natural pain reliever that also aids in the healing process. The warmth that is created from the blood moving faster through the tissue is very helpful in healing. The more blood that goes through the damaged area, the faster it will heal. This is not to say that you should stay home with the massager on the painful muscles, you should always follow your physicians advice and only use massage once or twice a day.
Aids in Sleep
Every person who suffers from insomnia will tell you that they can’t sleep because they cannot relax enough to quiet their brains down from an internal dialogue. Massage has the ability to relax the body enough that the mind also shuts down enough to allow sleep to come naturally. Those who take medications to sleep find they have a slight hangover from the pill or that they feel woozy for the first few hours after they wake. With massage, this type of hangover is never an issue as it is an all natural sleep remedy.
And do you ever feel hyped up after a long gaming session and you know you need to crash because you have work in the morning but you’re still going full speed? Here’s your answer!
It might sound crazy but once you try it for yourself, you’ll never look back.
