​​​Benefits of Massage

There are many, many benefits to receiving regular massages. Some of these include:

  • relief of stress & tension
  • relaxe tight muscles
  • improve circulation
  • increase flexibility in joints
  • better breathing
  • induces relaxation
  • relief of fatigue
  • relief of pain & discomfort
  • assist in flushing out toxins & lactic acids
  • improve muscle tone
  • assist in breaking up adhesions and 'knots' in muscles
  • reduce muscle spasms
  • promote good physical & mental health

Whew! and these are only SOME of the benefits.

The key to really and truly reap the benefits of your massages is to maintain a regular schedule in your massage therapy. I recommend a once-a-month full body massage at the bare minimum. The grand thing about massage is that too much is never a bad thing! [okay, if you're contraindicated~ then one is too much, but for the average healthy person you're fine.] I have seen clients on a weekly basis even!

There's a few things you need to take into consideration when deciding the amount of therapy you need:

  1. First of all, do you have a specific muscle related issue? like sciatica, or even headaches.
  2. Are you particularly active? like a runner, a rollergirl, or a weightlifter.
  3. How much time do you have available for appointments?
  4. and lastly...sorry, no way around it...your money situation is a consideration. *

* oh, i, money, money...but it's a fact of life. The fact is that even if you really need weekly massages to take care of that sciatica that's flaring up but you only have enough for every 3 weeks...well, then every 3 weeks is the best you can do. And there's nothing wrong with that at all.​
