Massage as part of your self-care routine!
When it comes to massage, “less is more” definitely does not apply. While one massage can certainly help in the moment, the greatest benefits are received over time. Massage therapy should be considered part of a long-term self-care routine. It’s best to get a massage as frequently as possible, even if it’s once a month or once every six weeks. Regular massage reduces chronic pain, improves flexibility, increases sleep quality, strengthens your immune system, helps relieve chronic headaches, boosts levels of the hormones serotonin and oxytocin, and combats the creation of the stress hormone cortisol. With so many benefits it is easy to see why your self-care routine should include a regular massage!
