To battle the blues this winter there are many lifestyle changes you can make. One of these is adding massage therapy into your regular schedule.
#1. Massage Is Great For The Psyche!
Massage can be a great mood lifter, as it relaxes and gives a sense of rejuvenation, as well as releasing the serotonin and endorphin chemicals – exactly the same chemicals that your body produces when the sun shines.
#2. Boost Your Immune System!
During the holiday season many of us battle stress and anxiety, along with a long to-do list. When you are stressed, sleep deprived, and are indulging in unhealthy foods, the body is more susceptible to infections. Cold and flu season is in full swing. Massage can help boost your immune system to help your body defend these illnesses.
#3. Reduce Pain!
Stress can lead you to carry tension in different points of your body (neck, shoulders back…). Massage will help you release this tension and relax your muscles. This leads to better circulation, & reduction of headaches, allowing you to lead a healthier and happier life.
