Why you don’t want to miss out on its benefits
The days have been getting shorter, the weather has brought cool temperatures and moist air and we naturally spend more time indoors and with limited sunlight touching our skin.
To help you through this winter by keeping your body and mind healthy, strong and with positive attitude, here is what Massage can do for you:
Boost your Immune System
Massage can help your body fight colds and flu by boosting your immune system through increasing the lymph flow, loaded with white blood cells to fight infections around the body.
Nourish your dry Skin with hydrating Massage Oils
As the humidity drops in winter the cold, dry air makes the water in your skin evaporate quicker, making your skin drier. The oils and lotions used in massage contain lots of vitamins to nourish & hydrate your skin – making you feel better on the inside & out!
Improve your Circulation
Your circulation may need a little help if your hands and feet are always chilly or if you’re having some aches and pains in the colder weather. Regular massage can help by enhancing blood flow and body warmth, which in turn increases the flow of oxygen around the body.
Banish the Winter Blues
Massage encourages positive changes in the endocrine system where hormones are created. These changes decrease cortisol levels (stress related hormone) and increase oxytocin levels (happy hormone) leading to the release of serotonin and endorphins, relieving the stress and enhancing your mood. Bye, bye winter blues!
Taking some time out from pre-Christmas stresses for a massage can really help boost your well-being and help to reset the balance in your life by aiding the release of stress. It will also help to improve your sleep to give you more energy during the busy winter months.
