Yes, regular massages sounds great—whether weekly, monthly, bi-monthly—but did you know that the cadence of massages received can contribute to the impact overall massage can have on your health and wellness?
While viewed by many as a luxury treatment, instead we invite you to consider massage as vital as sleep, exercise and eating nutritiously. Here are four reasons why you should book your next bodywork session immediately:
- Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Stress and anxiety are not only uncomfortable for the mind but can also severely tax the body making you susceptible to disease and complications. Massage can boost your body’s cortisol levels to drive up serotonin and dopamine to alleviate stress and assist you in feeling like your best self.
- Boosts Immunity
Get your lymph moving on the regular and give a helping hand to your body’s natural defense system. The gentle art of massage can promote better immune functionality to keep you healthy.
- Address Pain
No one wants to experience pain on a daily basis so taking active steps to unlock relief is necessary. With massage, there are numerous modalities that can target individual needs. From Swedish massage to Deep Tissue, Trigger Point to Hot Stone, figure out what works best for you.
- Reverse Effects of Sitting
Today, most individuals sit for work. This means a desk and a computer for 8-9 hours a day. Unfortunately, it also means rounded shoulders, slumped posture, and neck issues. Massage is key, along with exercise, in maintaining good body mechanics while keeping postural deviations in check.
The benefits of massage are rich, far-reaching, and essential. At Elements Massage Gilbert, we can talk to you about what the best schedule is to work on what ails you.
