Sometimes we view massage therapy as a luxury - something to only get at a spa or on vacation. However, massage is a legitimate form of healthcare (did you know you can use your HSA account for massage??!).
Here are our top 5 reasons to get a massage!
1.) You Need a Break (Maintenance for Your Body and Mind) - You wouldn't let your phone battery go dead, would you? Would you not change the oil in your car? Our bodies need maintenance too, and you need a break! A massage is a perfect reset for the mind and body.
2.) You Sit All Day at Work and/or Have a Long Commute - Sitting is hard on the body. Chronic pain patterns can start to develop after sitting for long periods, contributing to back pain, neck pain, arm and hand pain (if working at a computer). Massage therapy is excellent for unwinding these patterns and for releasing tight muscles associated with sitting.
3.) You are Feeling Stressed, Anxious or Depressed - Unfortunately, these symptoms are all too common in today's society. Massage therapy can help release happy brain chemicals such as serotonin, oxytocin and endorphins. These neurochemicals help to make us feel happy, calm and have pain-killing properties. If you're going through a tough time, show yourself some extra love with massage.
4.) You Want to be a More Effective Parent, Spouse and/or Employee - Reducing stress and boosting your happy brain chemicals actually can make up show up as a better parent, partner and help us perform better at our job. Massage therapy helps to shift us out of the fight-or flight stress mode. When we're in fight-or-flight, it's much harder to make good life decisions and show up as a calm presence for the people around us.
5.) Massage Can Boost the Immune System - Massage therapy helps us to produce more immune-enhancing chemicals in our blood, which can help us defend from viruses that we may be exposed to. If you're looking to keep your immune system healthy, regular massage therapy is a great tool to add to your arsenal.
