Why Get a Massage?

There are many reasons why people get a massage. Perhaps this will help you understand the importance of receiving regularly scheduled massage.

If you are a mother….  
Refilling your own well helps you to continue taking care of others. Getting a massage isn't a luxury, it's therapy…one that happens to help you fall asleep better, untangle stressed out nerves and increases feelings of esteem and self-worth.

If you love working out or are training for an event…
Exercise is great for the mind & body, but it's still wear and tear.  When we never restore and repair muscles we leave ourselves open to injury. Injury stops your ability to work out, and you know how hard it is once you stop your routine. Keep up the good work with adding massage to your routine - even once a week for a half-hour is enough to keep you doing what you love.

If you have a high stress job…
Stress will deteriorate your health faster than not working out. Daily stress brings about: increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, poor digestion, tight muscles, shallow breathing, lowered immune system. Massage helps to reverse these effects in as little as 20 minutes plus adds a renewed sense of calm and clarity to make you even more productive! Save your heart. Save your health. Suggested: 90 minutes/monthly

If you enjoy doing yoga…
Have trouble with a specific posture? Massage can help increase flexibility, which can deepen your yoga practice. Also, massage helps repair damaged muscles and stretched out tendons when you’ve stretched too far! Keep your zen with a therapeutic massage.

If you work with your body…
Contractors, construction, dance instructors, yoga teachers – if you need your body to work, then working with a skilled massage therapist will keep you employed. Massage doesn’t just feel good, it truly is a therapy that works to relieve pain (not just mask it like drugs).
