When is the last time you have gone to get a massage? Some of you may say it was last month and others may say it’s been months since you’ve treated yourself to a theraputic massage. I understand as a busy mom, you tend to feel guilty when you spoil yourself too much or decide to have a little “me” time. But maybe if you knew the many benefits behind getting massages, you wouldn’t feel so guilty. But you can get massages anywhere, from getting the massages from your husband or children to get a massager and do it yourself, who doesn’t like a foot massage every once in a while, so get one of Top 9 Best Foot Massagers – Ease the Pain and Discomfort, and treat yourself with it.
Years of research and recent clinical studies have proven that massage therapy is good for relaxation. But, that’s not all massage therapy does for you. Medicinal benefits of massage can have a positive, long lasting impact on your health and lifestyle. It can rid your body of life’s every day stresses, rid muscles of unwanted toxins, reduce muscle pain and tension, and help alleviate the discomfort of certain ailments whether from exercise, sports or age.
Experts say a person should experience a therapeutic massage once a month at the least. The more one goes, the healthier one will feel for longer periods of time. My busy schedule (and kid’s schedules) don’t allow me to go that frequent, but I do try to go when I can and I can honestly say the benefits are so well needed and are quite beneficial. I have to drink a lot of water when I go for my messages and afterwards as well. I tend to carry all of my stress in my neck and shoulders and I usually have a knot or two filled with tightness and toxins. Once my masseuse rubs them out, I can feel a little stuffy and experience cold-like symptoms. That’s why lots of water is recommended when you have a massage. When the toxins are released from your muscles, they tend to stay in your body, if you drink lots of water, the toxins will be forced out through your urine. This is a long-lasting benefit. Once the muscles are free from tension and your body gets rid of the toxins, you’ll feel like a new person!
If you live in Michigan and are looking for a spa to take care of your therapeutic massage needs, I’d like to recommend Massage Envy in Hampton Village. Recently, I was invited to visit and experience their $49 introductory 1 hour massage, $59 introductory 1 hour healthy skin facial. The facial was well needed, and so was the massage. I enjoyed the personable, professional and friendly staff and the services were enjoyable as well. At these rates, the services are very affordable compared to many other spas in the Metro Detroit area. At Massage Envy Hampton Village, you can select the type of massage that best fits your needs for one affordable rate.
