Having calm, relaxed muscles is a great way to help you not only get to sleep faster but it will help you get a better night's sleep the entire night. Some experts believe that massages are linked to certain brain waves that can help you sleep better. These particular brain waves are called delta waves. Massage therapy can help improve overall rest and relaxation throughout the day as well. A good massage that relaxes the deep muscles and tissues may even cause you to doze off while you're still on the massage table.
