Stretch Me Please: How Yoga and Massage Therapy Work Together to Find Balance
Elements Massage Preston Hollow Feb 17, 2015
Massage and yoga have several benefits in common. Both activities improve flexibility, increase circulation, and relieve stress. Combining your favorite type of yoga with your favorite type of massage can create a powerhouse of health benefits.
Combining the benefits of yoga with massage enables your mind, body, and spirit to achieve a harmony that influences your lifestyle and overall health. By improving flexibility, more limber joints help prevent injury by supplying a greater range of motion to make everyday activities easier and help to improve posture and breathing. When the circulation in increased, blood pressure is lowered and blood flow to hands and feet are improved. By relieving stress, overall health is improved and the opportunity for disease is lessened.
Massage and yoga can be enjoyed separately or one after the other. To warm up muscles and increase concentration during a yoga session book the massage first. To wind down with a relaxing massage and set the tone for the rest of the day, book the massage afterward. Whichever you decide, the massage will be a gratifying reward for all the hard work of your yoga class.
