Summer Massage Therapy: 5 Reasons Why You Should Book a Massage Today
Trying to find balance for the mind and body this summer? Your body is reveling in those shorts, excited to leave those heavy winter clothes behind. It’s busy taking all the fun of summer in. Meanwhile, your mind lingers in a state of bliss, but it won’t be long before the mind and body are at odds with this summer fun.
Here’s why booking regular massage in the summer is so important for keeping the mind and body in a state of happy and healthy harmony.
1. You’re more active
Be honest…you were more like part of the living room furniture during the colder months, weren’t you? Now that you’re not trapped inside, you’re making up for lost time. There’s the yard and garden that need tending, tennis dates with friends, and all kinds of busy outdoor activities. You won’t feel it at first, but jumping right into all this can pull and strain muscles you haven’t engaged in far too long.
2. It helps mobility
Joints feeling stiff after running through the yard with the kids or playing a round of golf? Massage therapy can help. It boosts blood flow and keeps your joints and muscles healthy. It’s especially important if you’ve ever had an injury before so get your massage on and enjoy more of the summer!
3. Heat makes things swell
All the heat and humidity can cause your body to swell up. You won’t feel comfortable at all when your body is retaining fluids. Regular massage helps fight these effects by improving your blood flow. This keeps swelling down and lets you move more comfortably wherever you go.
4. Promotes healthier immunity
One of the best benefits of regular massage in the summer time is that it increases your white blood cell activity. White blood cells are the ones that go to battle against intruding pathogens. No matter what germs are lurking out there, improving your white blood cell count will help you fight off anything that comes your way. Because it’s never fun to be sick in bed, the summer might just be the absolute worst season to fall ill.
5. You deserve it
Stress is an underlying cause of so many diseases. All that anxiety and worry builds up and it needs to be released. Stop thinking of massage as some luxury for the elite. Massage is for everyone and it’s something you should have regularly. You’ll promote better health and immunity, keep muscles from tiring out, and prime yourself for all kinds of new activities.
Now that summer is here, don’t waste another second of it. In Your Home Therapy won’t waste your time. We come to you at your convenience with professional massage therapists that can help you unlock those stiff muscles and joints and let you enjoy the best season of all!
