Massage Therapy: More Than Just Pampering!!!

We usually get treated to one as a gift or on some other special occasion like a Birthday, Anniversary or Mother's Day. If nothing else, when you are done they make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. But with fancy names like Swedish, Shiatsu and Deep Tissue, it is no wonder some of us walk away convincing ourselves that it was okay to pamper ourselves. I mean we all deserve a little indulgence every once in a while.....RIGHT?

It would not be a stretch to say that although many of us have had a massage few of us understand the value of Massage Therapy. The truth is even though a massage may feel like nothing more than glorified pampering it can be tremendously beneficial to your overall health.

So what exactly are the benefits of having a massage treatment? Interestingly, research indicates that Massage Therapy aids in:
  • Stress Reduction
  • Balancing the Nervous System
  • Increasing Circulation
  • Enhancing Immunity & Lymph Flow
  • Injury Recovery
  • Alleviating Pain
  • Increasing Energy
Additionally, Massage Therapy can help to stretch your muscles, improve your range of motion, increase joint flexibility as well as reduce spasms and/or cramping. An important point to keep in mind is that you increase the benefits of Massage Therapy by getting them more frequently. So the idea is to not wait for a special occasion to have one.
