25 reasons to get a massage

1/11/2021 0 Comments

During the holidays we had extended hours, Monday - Thursday to help accommodate those who needed later appointment times. GREAT NEWS! We decided to permanently keep Wednesday extended hours. Every Wednesday our hours are 9:30 am - 7:00 pm. We hope this makes it possible for more of you after 5’ers to have some time for you! Need a late appointment? We definitely got your back! I know sometimes it’s hard to do things for ourselves especially when we have so many responsibilities. So when you start talking yourself out of taking care of yourself, Here’s 25 reasons why you should get a massage this Wednesday or any day of the week.

  1. Relieve stress. Stress is gradually becoming one of society’s biggest killers. This can be mitigated by regular massage sessions. Every time you go for a massage, the first benefit you will experience is relaxation.

  2. Relieve postoperative pain

  3. Reduce anxiety

  4. Manage low-back pain

  5. Help fibromyalgia pain

  6. Reduce muscle tension

  7. Enhance exercise performance

  8. Relieve tension headaches

  9. Sleep better. Massage therapy will boost serotonin levels that will not only help with pain and anxiety but it will also help you sleep better.

  10. Ease symptoms of depression

  11. Improve cardiovascular health

  12. Reduce pain of osteoarthritis

  13. Decrease stress in cancer patients

  14. Improve balance in older adults

  15. Decrease rheumatoid arthritis pain

  16. Temper effects of dementia

  17. Promote relaxation

  18. Lower blood pressure

  19. Decrease symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  20. Help chronic neck pain

  21. Lower joint replacement pain

  22. Increase range of motion

  23. Decrease migraine frequency

  24. Improves your mood. Ever had a massage on a bad day and suddenly felt better? Massage therapy is not only a natural relaxer but it also makes you feel better mentally.

  25. Because you love Bodyworks of Perdido Key, and we love you!

Now I can’t think of 25 reasons why you shouldn’t practice self care. Take this time for yourself. With 168 hours in a week, taking only 1 hour dedicated just to you will give you many benefits. Massage will boosts and release endorphins, which increases the levels of both serotonin and dopamine in the body. As Elle Woods of Legally Blonde would say, “Endorphins make you happy”. The sudden boost of hormones promotes healing, feelings of euphoria, helps calm the nerves as well as pain management. Be Well, Cindy Owner/Founder/LMT
