Chair massage can help give the body relief from the physical and mental stresses of everyday life. Elements Therapeutic Massage is trained in Chair massage to provide the maximum benefit in a more compact procedure.
Massage can help prevent a variety of conditions seen in Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), such as Carpal Tunnel syndrome and Tendonitis. By stretching the muscles, promoting circulation and increasing range of motion, these conditions can be prevented while promoting good posture for continued prevention.
The simple act of breathing has shown to be disrupted by stress and computer work. Massage helps relax the entire body where breathing can be refocused back to a more natural pattern, which increases circulation and blood flow for a more healthy body. Eye strain is another ailment that affects people in small spaces and working on computers. During a chair massage you will be able to shut your eyes and focus on the darkness. Providing this vital break for your eyes will help in reducing strain, headaches, watery eyes and blurry vision.
All the physical ailments above are compounded by stress. Stress can be from any part of life and is carried with you to work. A chair massage can provide your mind and body with a chance to unwind. Massage has also been shown to increase serotonin levels which, in turn reduces the chances and effects of depression.
Emotional effects and benefits of massage have been seen through the relaxation of the entire body; reducing stress, reducing blood pressure, increasing productive sleep, relief of anxiety and depression as well as the release of vital endorphins into the body.
A chair massage can rejuvenate the body and mind. At Elements Therapeutic Massage Coeur d’Alene, we understand that by reducing physical and mental stresses, an elevated mood can increase the enjoyment of your job. The benefits will not only help on the job, but in your overall life as well. Contact our studio to book an appointment for your event or company in North Idaho.
