Before, During or After the Holidays – massage will do a body good!
Submitted by Janet Schwab – Elements Massage Chandler West
Winter is here. You have been wishing for it since mid- July! I have provided you with four justifiable reasons to get a massage this winter. Do you, your body, your family and your health a favor… get a massage.
1. Massage therapy is known to boost your immune system. Studies show that regular massage therapy can boost the body’s number of “killer cells”, making it easier to fight off the many communicable diseases that float around in the winter months.
2. With shorter, drearier days ahead, winter can leave you feeling tired and worn out. A good deep tissue massage, can be relaxing as well as uplifting. Massage therapy is an inexpensive way to beat the winter blues and is a healthy way to relieve stress.
3. With winter comes dry air, and with dry air comes dry skin. Massage therapy is proven to stabilize the collagen in your skin and also helps maintain your skin’s elasticity
4. Massage when coupled with warm elements help to warm the body and the soul. Try a Himalayan Salt Stone massage. The stones are warmed and used as an extension of your therapist’s hands to deliver a truly unforgettable massage.
There you have it! More reasons to treat yourself to a much deserved massage. If you feel you don’t deserve it now, then perhaps you will change your mind after your family commitments this holiday season are over. Go ahead and book your appointment now. Trust me, you will deserve it!
