Our team at HALO Salon & Spa wants to help you look and feel your very best, and one of the services we offer to help do that is massage therapy. If you’ve never tried massage therapy, keep reading to learn some of its benefits. In this article, we’ll be going over three reasons why we encourage all of our clients to try massage therapy for themselves.
- Reduced Stress. One reason to try massage therapy is that it helps alleviate stress. If you are experiencing tense or stiff muscles, tension headaches, or other symptoms of stress, getting a massage can help reduce those symptoms and help you relax. Massage has been linked to reduced levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and that reduction is great for your overall health.
- Pain Relief. Another reason to give massage therapy a try is that it can help relieve or manage pain. If your muscles are sore or stiff, a massage can help increase blood flow to the affected area and improve lymphatic circulation, both of which help promote recovery. Massage also helps to break up scar tissue that might be causing stiffness or restricted motion, improving your flexibility, and reducing discomfort.
- Improved Sleep. A third reason to try massage therapy is that it can help you get better sleep. By reducing your levels of stress, massage therapy promotes relaxation and helps get your mind and body ready for a good night’s sleep. Restful sleep is incredibly important to your overall wellbeing, so anything you can do to get more of it will have a net benefit.
