Did you know that a Remedial Massage can reduce back pain, alleviate stress and ease migraines?

Many people indulge in an ultimate relaxation massage once a year but when receiving a massage every three to four weeks, it can make a difference to your overall health.

Here are the 28 reasons why a Remedial Massage added to your exercise routine and great diet can reduce your risk of injury and chronic disease:

  1. Reduces muscular tension
  2. Increases blood and lymph circulation which helps eliminate toxins from the body
  3. Assists arthritic pain
  4. Reduces your heart and breathing rate
  5. Lowers your blood pressure
  6. Breaks down knots (adhesions) and scar tissue
  7. Promotes a quicker healing of soft tissue injuries
  8. Reduces stress
  9. Effectively treats chronic pain
  10. Eases constipation
  11. Reduces the effects of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) post exercise
  12. Increases joint mobility and flexibility
  13. Accelerates recovery caused by fatigue
  14. Manages headache or migraine pain
  15. Reduction of swelling in joints from injury or pregnancy through lymphatic drainage
  16. Improves sleep
  17. Stimulates the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killer into the brain and nervous system
  18. Prepares the mind and body for physical activity
  19. Assists with cramping of the calves during pregnancy

  28. And overall promotes relaxation of the mind and body

To get the most out of your massage make sure you:

  • Don’t eat right before a massage
  • Make sure you arrive on time. Rushing makes it harder to relax during your massage
  • If you are allergic to any oils, lotions or powders, tell your massage therapist
  • Inform your therapist if the pressure is too hard or soft
  • If you feel dizzy or light-headed after the massage, take your time getting up
  • Drink plenty of water for the rest of the day after your massage
