More than just a luxury, massage impacts your overall well-being
Believe it or not, some people still think of massage as nothing but a gratuitous form of relaxation. While a great massage session can certainly be relaxing, there are myriad benefits to a regular massage regimen.
What are the health benefits of massage?
Massage can help to both prevent and treat soft tissue injuries. It stimulates the lymph system, which boosts the body’s immune system and natural ability to fight inflammation. It loosens toxins from within body tissues, allowing one to flush the body of these intruders. Deep tissue massage is helpful in breaking up adhesions (tough fibrous bands) that form between muscles and can limit movement.
Working with a skilled massage therapist can improve the quality of your sleep, as well as helping to control anxiety and stress. Aches and pains associated with our modern, hectic lifestyle can be alleviated through the long, gentle strokes of Swedish massage. Aromatherapy can be used in conjunction to heighten these benefits.
Prenatal massage is an excellent option for nurturing the pregnant body and stimulating blood flow to both mother and fetus.
A regular massage session allows you time to decompress and listen to your body, making you more in tune with yourself. This deeply soothing ritual both invigorates the body as well as boosting your emotional health.
You only get one body – treat it with the care it deserves.
