Four Reasons Why You Need a Massage
Yes, we all need them, but not just because they make you feel good! In this post we take a deep dive into why you really should be scheduling a massage right now:
We all love massages. After all, what’s not to love about getting to relax while someone gets rid of all those nasty knots on your back muscles? But the relaxation isn’t the only perk of a massage, and we are here to shed some light on all the amazing benefits they bring!
1. Massage increases your self-awareness
During a massage, all you have to do is think and reflect. This will help you increase your self-awareness and achieve a better understanding of your problems and life as a whole.
2. It improves your posture
Relaxing your muscles and getting rid of the aches will have an immediate positive effect on your posture as your back muscles will release their tension.
3. It promotes deeper breathing
In a similar way to yoga, while you’re getting a massage you can concentrate on your breathing. This has a positive impact on your life, as breathing is the most important thing we do and deeper breathing can help you de-stress and even improve at sports and other activities.
4. It can increase your peace of mind
Is there a better feeling than getting a head massage? That sensation of ultimate relaxation, letting go of problems and worries can help you increase your peace of mind, leaving the treatment feeling lighter and happier!
These are our main reasons, but there’s more… here’s our full list!
Of course you don’t just have to take our word for it! Massage therapy is a truly ancient art, and there are actually over 80 different styles of massage available. For more information on the topic, take a look at this article.
