25 reasons to enjoy a massage

Are you tired, sore and stressed out?

Will amassage help?

 

Many people would agree a massage makes them feel good. But do you know the health and well being benefits associated with getting regular treatments.

I know how difficult it can be to make time for a massage. I treat myself only every so often and as I’m booking my sessions, I question whether or not I really need it, could I be spending that money on something else etc. and the most terrible thing about this? I’m a massage therapist myself.

You know there are studies out that prove just how beneficial massage is and it isn’t just a luxury or a treat that it belongs right up there with exercising and proper nutrition as part of our health and wellness plan.

After a massage, people generally report immediate pain relief, as well as feeling more relaxed. Getting a massage regularly allows more complex and longer term issues to be worked on such as chronic pain and strained muscles caused by exercise, posture, repetitive movements, heavy lifting and injury.
