As you probably know, at Brick Canvas we’re all about self care and taking care of your mind and body. Most people view getting a massage as a luxurious way to treat yourself, but receiving a massage is much more beneficial than you may think.
Here are 4 reasons why you should be booking a massage every month at Brick Canvas Spa:
Reduces Anxiety, Depression, and Stress
It’s true when they say the power of human touch is healing. When we are tense or stressed, our bodies release an unhealthy amount of cortisol, which can contribute to weight gain, digestive issues, restlessness and headaches. Receiving a massage can help reduce that stress. It increases dopamine and serotonin, which are the feel-good neurotransmitters in our bodies.
Promotes Muscular Relaxation and Reduces Inflammation
One of the most common reasons people receive a massage is to target and reduce any pain throughout the body. A massage helps promote circulation, which reduces stiffness and swelling in the muscles and joints. It also increases flexibility.
Helps You Get Some Rest
If you’re having issues falling asleep at night, receiving a massage can help increase your serotonin levels, making it easier for you to relax and get some rest.
Boosts Your Immunity
Not only do you feel relaxed after a massage, but you might also feel healthier. And it’s not all in your head! It’s a well-known fact that individuals who experience high levels of stress are more vulnerable to illness and injury. When stress is combined with sleep disturbances and poor nutrition, the impact is directed at the body’s immune system. Just like regular exercise can keep the body fine-tuned, regular massage therapy can help keep the immune system strong and resilient.
Booking a regular massage at Brick Canvas Spa will benefit you in many ways, and will promote wellness to your body, mind, and soul.
