Top 10 Reasons Massage and Self-Care are Necessities

May 01, 2021 05:39PM ● By Amber Mc Kenzie

Our physical body is our number one asset in life, yet we often take it for granted and leave our own self-care at the bottom of the to-do list. It’s easy to think the body will last forever without regular tune-ups, but as many can attest, it won’t. Taking care of our vitality helps us do more of what we have come here to do in the world, and massage therapy is one form of self-care the body needs to stay vital. To reiterate, self-care is not an indulgence; it is a necessity. For those in need of permission to schedule regular massage therapy, here is the American Massage Therapy Association’s top 10 reasons to get a massage:

·      Relieve stress

·      Reduce anxiety

·      Manage low-back pain

·      Enhance exercise performance

·      Relieve tension headaches

·      Improve sleep

·      Ease symptoms of depression

·      Improve cardiovascular health

·      Lower blood pressure

·      Help chronic neck pain

Massage therapy not only relieves muscle tension and decreases physical pain, it also improves mental and emotional health. The positive effects of a quality massage session last long after the session is complete. Try it for yourself – your body will thank you for it!
