Everyone loves a massage. When we think about getting a massage, we usually think about relaxation and how great it will be to have some “me” time for the afternoon. But massage is so much more than relaxing – it has proven benefits to improve your health!

  • Massage stimulates circulation, which brings oxygen to tired, sore muscles.?
  • Massage improves your mood. Studies have shown that people who get regular massages have less depression, anxiety, and stress.?
  • The relaxation that comes with massage promotes a restful night’s sleep.?
  • Massage increases white blood cell counts to boost the immune system.
  • People who suffer from tension headaches often feel relief with massage.?
  • You may have heard that “sitting is the new smoking.” Massage can counteract the negative effects of too much sitting, which is good news for those with desk jobs who spend several hours per day in their chairs.?
  • Massage helps athletes prepare for and recover from strenuous activities.?
  • Massage can release endorphins, which act as natural painkillers. ?
  • Fatigue is reduced and more energy is restored with regular massage.?
  • Massage is beneficial for helping alleviate pain or discomfort caused by several medical conditions, including arthritis, high blood pressure, and PMS.

There are also different types of massages to suit your needs. Their duration ranges from a quick pick-me-up to a long, full-body massage. Deep tissue massage is used to reduce muscle tension, reduce pain and increase circulation. Massage aids such as hot towels, aromatherapy, hot stones and essential oils are used in some massage techniques to increase its therapeutic effects.
