5 Reasons to Get a Massage

Did you know that massage is covered under most benefit programs, allowing you to claim a portion or the entire cost of massage service? It appears most people think of massage as a treat to themselves, but it can be a really great way to maintain your overall health, decrease muscle pain, improve your athletic performance, and assist in reducing pain caused by arthritis and/or other illnesses.

Stress Relief

Massage can provide you with 30-90 minutes of relaxation, taking you away from your every day stresses and allowing you to clear your mind of any bothersome thoughts.

 

 

Reduce Anxiety

Alongside stress management, massage can help to reduce anxiety by enforcing relaxation. Many people experience anxiety throughout the week as they find a way to manage work place stressors and other personal concerns.

Decrease Migraine Frequency

 

Do you experience severe headaches and/or migraines? Massage can help to relax your muscles and decrease the frequency in which you experience migraines.

 

 

Reduce Muscle Tension

Parallel to reducing headaches, massage therapists can help to relax the other muscles in your body that might be causing you pain or discomfort. Your massage therapist can work on specific muscle groups to release tension throughout your body.

Enhance Exercise Performance

Massage can help to increase your range of motion, therefore enhancing your exercise performance. If you have tight muscles at the gym, you’re at greater risk for injury and you likely won’t be able to complete your exercises properly.
