When summer kicks off, the stress can be astounding, especially if you have kids at home. Shuttling them to and from camp or even trying to entertain them at home is always exhausting. Then there’s all the activities. The picnics, the parties, and all the outdoor activities that take a huge toll on our bodies.
That’s why summer is one of the best seasons for a massage. Here is how having a massage can help you survive the summer!
– Time for yourself
When you spread yourself too thin, it shows. All the action along with the hotter temperatures can lead to frazzled nerves. Taking the time for a massage helps your body recuperate after busy days or endless activities. It also helps clear your mind so you have an overall feeling of wellness inside and out.
– Relief from activities
Summer is a time when most people really become active, especially outdoors. After the harsh winters drove us inside, we’re all seeking an active lifestyle outdoors. Tennis, golfing, running, swimming, hiking, plus all that gardening and yard work put strains on muscles we haven’t used since last summer. Massages help speed up your muscles’ recovery time and keep you primed for more action!
– Off sleeping schedules
With days that begin earlier and end later thanks to the sun, our internal clocks get a little confused. This can throw off your attempts to get that full 8 hours of rest every night. One easy fix is to get a massage. It helps your body produce more of those relaxing hormones like melatonin and serotonin which put your brain into a peaceful state, picking up on the rhythmic cycle to go to sleep.
– Relief from swelling
Heat causes things to expand, and guess what? That means your joints too. Add to it the increase in your activities and the humidity and your joint pain can be expounded. With regular massage, you can increase the blood flow to get things moving and relieve that pesky inflammation so you can enjoy better days.
– Mental refreshment
Massage is always good for the body, but it’s also always good for the mind. When things start running you ragged, especially when summer starts to end and nothing seems to be done, you can clear your head with a massage. Reduce the anxiety from trying to get everything ready for back-to-school and just get back to you.
Think you don’t have time for a massage? Think again! We can come to you in the privacy of your own home and help harmonize your mind and body for everything the summer throws your way.
