If you’re reading this, you likely already know massage isn’t a luxury—it’s a necessity. While the occasional massage is better than nothing, it can’t undo a lifetime of tension and stress. You’ll get exponentially greater benefits from a regular massage. Here are just a few ways:
If you sit at a desk all day, your body is already crying out for help. Massage lengthens the tissue and joints that get compressed in a constant seated posture and reopens circulation that gets cut off as a result.
The health implications of stress can be devastating, and can undo much of your efforts to exercise and eat right. Regular massage calms tension, lowers blood pressure, and reduces cortisol levels, curbing many of the physiological stress conditions that lead to illness—and helping you get the most out of all your other wellness practices!
No matter how fit you are, exercise is hard on your body. Massage improves flexibility, range of motion, and keeps your muscles supple. If you subject your body to regular feats of endurance, biweekly or monthly massage will support its ability to perform and recover and help prevent future injury.
Because massage activates the parasympathetic nervous system (the body’s mechanism for resting and healing), it is a powerful natural means to improving sleep. Routine massage will go even further toward resetting an out-of-whack circadian rhythm—a common source of chronic insomnia.
Regular massage will gradually work out long-standing tension and retrain your body to recover from life’s many stresses. Hand in Helath makes it easy with our monthly membership program.
