It’s not just an indulgence or treat. Massage therapy is a powerful and proven self-care tool that can boost your health and well-being in surprising ways. Here’s a closer look at the benefits of massage, compliments of Reader’s Digest Best Health, a trusted online health source.
Massage therapy may help:
Counteract the negative effects of your desk job.
The side effects of sitting for long periods of time are just plain scary! A sedentary lifestyle is linked to an increased risk of obesity, disease and death. As if that’s not bad enough, sitting can also take its toll on your muscles, especially if you sit hunched over a desk all day. Massage therapy can help release muscle tension after hours of sitting. Our licensed massage therapists will chat with you to understand your lifestyle and work the specific muscle groups concerned so you can return to your day with less pain and a sense of renewal.
Reduce PMS symptoms.
According to a study at University of Miami Medical School, massage can help relieve mood swings, bloating, headaches and other premenstrual symptoms.
Improve sleep, pain, fatigue, depression, and more!
A number of studies indicate that massage therapy offers total body benefits. Cancer patients reported less stress, pain, nausea, fatigue and depression after receiving therapeutic massages such as Swedish, light touch and foot massage.
