Did you know that receiving a regular massage is more than just a luxury of relaxation? Did you know that getting massage regularly has real health benefits? Getting monthly massages can transform your New Year's resolution, especially if it includes finding health, wellness, or overall vitality. Whether your New Year's resolution is to exercise more, to eat healthier, or to be more productive or present, massage can help you reach your goals. Here are a few reasons to include massage into your New Year's resolution:
- If your New Year's resolution is to exercise or better athletic performance
Many people use the New Year to get back into shape, lose weight, or step up their athletic performance. Massage does amazing things for athletes and for anyone who exercises. Massage helps to increase range of motion and flexibility, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, promotes energy and enhances exercise/athletic performance.
- If your New Year's resolution is to be healthier
Similarly, if you're simply looking to be healthier in 2020, adding massage to your resolution is essential. Massage has many health benefits including boosting immunity, increasing circulation, flushing bodily toxins, lowering blood pressure, and regulating blood sugar. It also has positive effects on mental health by relaxing the body and mind, and relieving stress.
- If your New Year's resolution is to be more productive
This may come as a shock to some. Massage is a great way to relax, rest, and rejuvenate. When we allow our bodies and our minds time for rejuvenation and relaxation, they perform better. Massage also helps improve sleep quality, which will help you function more productively throughout the day. Rest and relaxation is the way to a more productive year.
- If your New Year's resolution is to learn how to manage stress better
One of the most known health benefits of massage is stress relief. One of the most effective ways to relieve stress and keep stress hormone levels in control is to get regular massages.
- If your New Year's resolution is to spend less time behind a screen
If you are making an effort this year to spend less time on social media or watching T.V., then consider getting massage regularly. The one hour, ninety minutes, or two hours you spend on the massage table, you are free from your phone and the television. Getting regular massage takes you into the present moment. Once you experience this a couple of times you will notice being in the present moment more often, and checking your phone less.
- If your New Year's resolution is to live life to the fullest
Massage helps us live our lives to the fullest. The many health benefits of massage help the body and mind to return to a state of balance. It helps us to become more present, less tense, reduce pain, and makes us all-around healthier. The best part of getting regular massages is how great you feel re-entering the world afterward. When the pain and the stress dissipate during your massage, you can live your life to the fullest.
Make your New Year's resolution stick this year by making regular massages a part of your resolution. Massage can enhance your quality of life and your health! Whatever your resolution is, we are sure massage will help.
