We already know that having a professional massage feels outstanding. However, there are many other benefits to getting a regular massage that you may not be familiar with.
The healing therapy of massage goes beyond just making you feel relaxed. While there is no doubt that we could all use a few more moments in our week in which to relax, the added benefits of massage that you may not be as familiar with, will have you calling to book your next appointment ASAP.
According to the Mayo Clinic, studies have been done that show that aside from stress relief and muscle pain management, regular massages may also be beneficial in the treatment and management of:
· Digestive disorders
· Insomnia related to stress
Additionally, there are many types of massages available that focus on various methods of therapy and target different aspects of your well-being.
Swedish/Relaxation: With an emphasis on reducing stress and decreasing the amount of stress hormones in the body, a Swedish massage uses a combination of kneading and gentle pressure to the muscle tissue to help loosen and relax the body. The combination of a peaceful setting and the skilled work of the massage therapist’s hands allows for the client to let go of stress and helps promote relaxation for both body and mind.
Deep/Tissue: A deep tissue massage targets deep layers of connective tissue and muscle. Pressure is applied in long strokes to targeted areas of concern or discomfort. A deep tissue massage would be ideal for the client who has experienced injury or chronic tension and needs to have those ‘knots’ worked out. The result is improved circulation and reduced pain which allows greater freedom of movement.
We also offer Lymphatic Drainage Massage, which helps to improve circulation and calm the nervous system – and also Prenatal Massage which is safe for mama and baby (and MUCH needed!).
