Getting a single 60-minute massage has a major impact on your well-being. Your massage therapist will identify and target your personal “problem areas” within your body. They will knead out trigger points also known as knots, while leaving you feeling fresh and balanced. A massage is one of the best ways to relieve stress and calm your over thinking. According to the American Institute of Stress, approximately 3 out of 4 doctor visits are related to stress.
Stress increases the risk of diabetes and heart disease, suppresses the immune system, promotes insomnia, causes digestive disorders, and much more. While there’s no way to completely avoid stress factors, getting a massage can certainly reset your system. Massages can improve blood flow and circulation, by kneading out muscle knots to the affected region. This helps with muscle recovery and healing times while also protecting against pain and inflammation.
Most people will agree that 60- 90 minutes is the perfect amount of time for a massage. It allows one to receive a thorough massage, target problem areas, but not requiring to invest a significant chunk of your day. A massage therapist will use this time frame to massage the client’s entire body, or a specified area. To make the most of your massage, we recommend that you talk with your therapist beforehand and address any issues and/or concerns you might have.
One of the most beneficial reasons to schedule a massage, it is a time all to your self. Allowing you to completely disconnect from the day, stress, and any other thing that is hanging on your mind. When we schedule time to ourselves and keep that schedule it makes us aware of how important our time is, as well as how important we are to ourselves. All in all getting a massage is one of the best things we can do for our minds, bodies, and souls.
