Benefits of Massage
Performing regular maintenance on your vehicle is important if you want it to run well and be reliable. You may not see an immediate decline in reliability if you neglect to change the oil on time, but continue to ignore this task and problems will arise! That once reliable vehicle will no longer run! It is more cost effective to perform regular maintenance so as to avoid the high costs of neglect.
Now apply that thought process to your body! Are you performing regular body maintenance now or just crossing your fingers that the cost of your neglect doesn’t break the bank later on down the road? The choices you make every day add up . . .
A healthy, well balanced, whole foods diet provides proper nutrition and is the foundation of a well-functioning body. Exercising strengthens your muscles and improves your cardiovascular health. Meditating quiets your mind and helps you feel more centered and balanced. Massage therapy manually manipulates your musculature, your fascial layers, your lymphatic system and allows you to enter the relaxed, parasympathetic state (“rest & digest”) that is essential for healing and rejuvenation.
Research shows that conditions such as stress, back pain, fibromyalgia and more can be eased by adding massage to your current health and wellness regimen. The meditative quality of massage helps restore your body, mind, and spirit. The physical manipulation of massage helps lubricate your tissue with fresh circulation to keep you moving and grooving.
Here are just a few of the reasons to receive massage regularly.
