Pure indulgence…or a necessary stress buster?
While the common notion might be a relaxation massage is purely indulgent, the truth is it is a doorway into our wellbeing. With stress being one of the biggest threats to our health today, a relaxation massage can actually be a powerful remedy by stimulating our parasympathetic nervous system and giving us the space to relax and rejuvenate. This can help lower our blood pressure, improve circulation and boost our immune system. Other studies have shown that massage is an effective therapeutic option for depressive symptoms, particularly in the lead up to and post-menopause. Regular massages can also help with muscle tension, improve our skin, and promote better sleep!
