You may have healthy eating down and have a great workout routine, but how are you taking care of your stress? How do you practice self-care? Stress can do some damage to not just your mental health but your physical health as well. Stress can easily overwhelm healthy habits, often negating the benefits that coincided with those habits.
Incorporating a massage into your wellness routine is an easy step to improving your mental and physical health, placing an emphasis on keeping you healthy and happy. Massage doesn't just feel amazing, it offers a number of benefits that carry on long after you’ve left the massage table. Here are a few good reasons you should incorporate massage into your wellness routine.
Stress and Anxiety ReliefStress and anxiety can experience relief through regular massages, not only by the relaxing environment massages provide but also by the calming, hands-on relief massage therapists provide. Massages can help reduce your stress hormones and encourage the release of endorphins to boost your mood. For further relief from stress and anxiety, try our Relax Therapeutic Massage Oil or Lotion. Infused with Lavender, Peppermint, and Marjoram Essential Oils; these products will help produce a calming effect, naturally relaxing the mind and body.
Pain ReliefMassage therapy can help to reduce pain in your body by specifically targeting areas that are causing you pain. Regular massage can heal more than just your stress, it can help fix aches, pains, and reduce built up. Massage therapists can help you assess your body to determine what massage techniques are best suited for your overall health, healing, and recovery. For added relief for aches and pains we suggest products from our Relief Arnica Collection. Arnica, nature’s anti-inflammatory, is also a natural recovery aid for sore muscles & over exertion.
Better SleepMassage can help you achieve a deeper, more restorative night's rest. When you get a massage, your nervous system slows down, allowing you to sleep better at night. When you sleep better, your overall health and wellness will benefit. With just a few spritzes on your linens, our Relax Aromatherapy Spray will help to quiet your mind and prepare your for a wonderful nights rest.
Boost FocusAdding a massage into your routine can help you daily by improving your focus and attention. Because a massage slows down your nervous system, your heart rate is slowed, which can aid you in feeling relaxed, calm, and giving you a renewed focus. Loaded with citrus essential oils, our Renew Massage Oil assists in fighting fatigue while improving your mood and boosting your focus.
Improves Circulation and Lowers Blood PressureGetting a massage can help increase circulation and lower blood pressure. Both of these are significant contributors to your overall health. Shown to improve circulation, compounds found in Eucalyptus Oil allow for more blood to flow and circulate around the body. Infused with Eucalyptus Essential Oil, our Refresh Therapeutic Massage Oil could be a great choice to assist in the circulation process. It's also nut-free, being a great choice for those with nut allergies.
As we mentioned earlier, A healthy routine is the root of a healthier lifestyle. A massage takes the guessing game out of health and wellness treatment, as it provides many benefits to your overall health.
