The Power of Touch

Let’s be honest—the last few months have been some of the most stressful in recent history. We’re all dealing with isolation and anxiety which both take an incredible toll on the mind and body. Plus, if you’re working from home, you’re probably working from a desk or table that isn’t quite at the right level. This can wreck your back if you don’t take a maintenance day to rejuvenate with a therapeutic massage. Let’s explore just how beneficial massage therapy can be in trying times.

Enhance Your Mood

We could all use a pick-me-up about now. High stress, depression, and anxiety are common when we don’t take a break from our busy lives to focus on our well-being. One way to do that is through a therapeutic massage. A relaxing massage session reduces irritability, melts stress, and helps to refocus on the road ahead. Reducing stress can also help you to get rid of bad habits like unhealthy eating and smoking.

Reduce Pain

Do you have a chronic injury or illness that causes you persistent pain? Whether it’s joint pain, a sports injury, digestive disorder, or even a soft tissue injury, it can be managed with massage therapy. Research has proven that a massage is a powerful partner in pain management and shouldn’t be overlooked. When a massage boosts blood flow to your back and other muscles, it helps remove waste products and encourages healing of injuries. A massage even boosts endorphin levels to increase relaxation, pain relief, and happiness.

Decrease Muscular Tension

Sitting at home at a cramped desk or ill-fitting office chair has probably caused your muscles to tense and tighten without you even realizing it. By targeting the soft tissue of the back, a therapeutic massage reduces tension and relaxes muscle knots which cause pain in the back and surrounding areas if left untreated.

Boost Heart Health

Today more than ever, stress and unhealthy habits have caused a decrease in heart health across the country. Regular therapeutic massage helps to lower your heart rate and blood pressure. This provides a boost to your circulatory system and reduces the strain on your heart. The key is to get a massage at regular intervals to maximize the health-enhancing effects.
