When it comes to massage, people tend to want to book a massage when they hurt themselves somehow. It’s even happened to me. I’ve woken up, rolled over and tweaked my shoulder somehow.
This post, however, is about the times when you want to zone out and relax. There’s no shame in wanting a massage just because it feels good and you want to relax.
So, here are 9 benefits of relaxation massage, and most of the reasons have to do with what’s called the “Relaxation Response.”
Your heart and breathing rate slows.
Your blood pressure lowers.
The production of stress hormones (cortisol) decreases.
Your muscles relax.
Dopamine and serotonin (the feel-good hormones) increase.
You sleep better.
They help with chronic pain when done often enough.
It allows your mind to quiet.
You get to get away from the house and have a legitimate reason to turn off your phone, stop multitasking and just BE.
When was the last time you’ve allowed yourself time to just relax and be without the buzzing of your phone’s notifications?
Can you remember when?
If not, then maybe it’s time to book your Fort Worth massage. You can do that here.
