Bucketful of Zzz’s.

Every now and then, you may experience stressful situations that keep you awake at night. If they happen all too often, a soothing massage might be in order. Back massages are said to relax the larger muscles and relieve tension that may be making it tough for you to fall asleep. What’s more, you will be more likely to stay in the ‘deep sleep’ stage, which is when the body repairs muscles and tissues, while building up energy for the next day.

Goodbye headaches.

If the terrible pain of headaches and migraines are all too familiar, then you’ll be pleased to note that massages will help! It’s even been said that massages help decrease the frequency and severity of tension headaches.

Sit up, pay attention.

Spending hours at your desk or even behind the wheel can lead to back aches and pains if you don’t maintain a good posture. More often than not, postural stress also manifests in the shoulders and neck. Massages however, can help counteract the imbalance caused from prolonged periods of sitting.

Flex and relax.

You’ve probably already heard that a relaxing massage can help ease muscle pains after a rewarding evening at the gym or your weekly cleaning spree at home. True enough! But do you know exactly how massages help? Long story short, massages keep you flexible and maintain range of motion by working the muscles, connective tissue, tendons and ligaments. This facilitates muscle recovery so you feel better, faster!

All smiles and good feels.

It’s been said that human touch (in an environment that is safe, professional and friendly) can be therapeutic and calming. Also, massages are said to stimulate the production of endorphins, dopamine and serotonin – chemicals that make the body feel good and improve your overall mood. Massages in particular can help decrease pain in the lower back – and keep anxiety and depression at bay.
