30 MayRemedial Massage therapy during the cool Winter Months
With the winter days creeping in, now is the perfect time to enjoy the many benefits of a warming winter massage and not just because it feels good.
Remedial Massage therapy during the cool winter months will help keep you feeling well and nurtured giving your immune system a timely boost, reliving aches and pains, improve dry skin and keeping those winter blues at bay.
With massage increasing the flow of lymph (which is packed with white blood cells) throughout our body, our immune system gets a nice boost, helping to fight off any infections and bacteria.
Massage therapy during the winter will also help to improve your body function and aid in minimising discomfort, pain and arthritic pain bought on by the chilly cold weather by improving blood flow, warming your muscles, joints, tendons and organs.
Therapist TIP – Using a heat or wheat pack on trouble areas post massage will assist in continuing the nurturing blood flow to these areas.
Not to mention, with winters shorter days, a regular massage will help keep the winter blues at bay by increasing the release of serotonin and endorphins assisting in relieving stress, bringing comfort and an overall state of well-being.
What better reasons to enjoy a therapeutic, remedial massage.
