Start your New Year with Massage!

January 2011

Massage therapy and bodywork is a great way to help us feel pampered, yet gives us a therapeutic experience that lasts long after the massage is over.  Massage therapy is powerful.  It helps reduce stress, lowers anxiety, and helps us sleep better.

Staying healthy is challenging in this cold and flu season, and massage helps us stay well by improving our immunity, stimulating lymph flow, the body’s natural defense.  Massage also improves the condition of the body’s largest organ, the skin.

Helping to keep our spirits renewed, massage lessens depression and fatigue, it lowers blood pressure and improves circulation.   Few things make us feel older than stiff muscles and joints, but regular massage lessens stiffness and improves joint flexibility.  Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness, and women with premenstrual syndrome show decreased water retention and discomfort with regular massage.

Bodywork and massage helps athletes of any level prepare for and recover from tough workouts.

About the only thing massage doesn’t do is clean the floors!  Massage is often thought of as a treat, and it is a wonderful gift, because it feels like pampering, and is still therapeutic.

Ask your trainer or call for more information.  Have a blissful and blessed 2011!
