Our bodies work hard for us. Walking, running, lifting, stretching…the human body is an amazing machine!
Therapeutic massage gives back to your body as much as your body gives to you. From pure relaxation to physical and mental rehabilitation, massage is the ultimate way to let your body know you appreciate all it does.
Here are just a few of the ahhhhh-mazing ways our massages can impact your overall health and happiness.
1) allover relaxation
Step away from the computer, put down the phone, and let our massage therapists help you unwind from your head to your toes. A massage doesn’t always have to be about deep muscle work. Sometimes it’s important to close your eyes and simply relax. Spa tip: Ask your therapist to pay special attention to your hands and fingers. We are a nation of typers and texters (did you know that your fingers and toes are two of the most sensitive parts of your body?)—your digits will thank you!
2) emotional and physical stress relief
Everything from work-related stress to physical pain can be addressed during a therapeutic massage. Studies show that regular massage can help with anxiety, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic headaches, joint pain and more. Spa tip: Don’t be afraid to tell your therapist what feels good and what does not, especially if you are experiencing pain or recovering from an injury. They are trained to tailor it specifically to YOUR body’s needs!
3) toxin removal
Our bodies are constantly inundated with unwanted pollutants and chemicals. Massage helps release and remove these dangerous toxins and metabolic wastes from the body. Spa tip: Drink plenty of water after your session to speed up the removal of toxins and help rehydrate your body.
