The 10 BEST reasons for a massage!

Cold Weather – Did you know muscle and joint pain can be attributed to changes in barometric pressure? Add the physical strains of tackling winter activities such as shoveling snow or scraping ice off frozen windshields, and you end up with a lot of pulled muscles, strained backs and tired bodies. Massage is also an excellent immunity booster. Regular massage can help you stay healthy this winter!

Chronic muscular pain – Massage encourages the release of pain-fighting endorphins that help bring relief from chronic pain. Many customers use massage for relief from fibromyalgia and muscular dystrophy as well as other degenerative diseases.

Sciatica / Lower back pain – Tight lower back muscles can place stress on your nerve roots. Massage therapy loosens these muscles and helps prevent pinching or irritation.

Under Stress – Massage therapy can reduce pain, increase energy levels and improve overall physical and mental performance.

At the end of a difficult week – A massage will loosen up your muscles and release tensions. This puts your body into a relaxed state which will help you to re-energize prior to going back to work.

After a workout – Massage helps flush lactic acid buildup out of muscle fiber and reduce recovery time.

Before a sports event – Receiving a sports massage prior to participating in a sporting event will help with flexibility as well as durability during the event.

Before a holiday – The stress of the holiday’s is sure to be felt! Take the time to self-care and get a massage before the stress happens. This will melt your tensions and free you up to get back to your holiday errands feeling refreshed.

After a holiday – Of course! A massage will help bring your mind, body, and emotional health back to a ready state prior to getting back to your routine.

Before a vacation – Most of us spend so much time running around getting ready for the vacation that we are doubly stressed out by the time we get on the plane or in the car to leave. Try Getting a massage 1 or 2 days prior to leaving. You will be amazed at how relaxed and ready you are for travel.

After a Vacation – If you have ever felt like you needed a vacation from your vacation try getting a massage when you get back.  This helps to extend your vacation as well as helps you be ready for your normal routine.
