- Mood boosting
A massage has been shown to reduce anxiety and depression – and who isn’t a little anxious or overwhelmed at this time of year! By reducing the stress hormone cortisol, and boosting the feel good brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine, a massage is a fantastic way to clear your head and get back to a happy headspace so that you can do everything you need to do… but with a smile on your face!
- Pain management
Take a second right now and listen to your body. Does your back hurt? Are your neck and shoulders tense? Do you have a headache, getting migraines, or are you clenching your jaw? Are you hunched over, or do you just feel tight all over?
Funny thing is, ten seconds ago you weren’t noticing any of this. But believe me, it was having an effect on how you feel, how much you can do in a day, and your mood. Getting a massage has been proven to relieve pain just as effectively as medication, acupuncture, or yoga.
Imagine how you would feel today if you were didn’t have that niggling pain and tension always in the background…
- Always tired?
Massage has been shown to promote better quality sleep, as well as raise alertness and cognitive processing through the day. It also boost your immunity, which is at its lowest when you are run down and tired all the time.
As an added bonus, a massage increases blood flow and promotes lymphatic drainage, flushing all those nasty toxins out of your body. The effects? You look more rested, your skin is plumper, and your cells more nourished so you look younger and your complexion improves. What a plus!
