“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”
– Mohandas Gandhi

If I had a Nickel for everytime I heard someone say “I treated myself to a massage,” I’d be much more financially secure than I am today!

Yes, a spa style Aromatherapy massage with candles and ambient music can be very relaxing and a special “treat” but how long does that great feeling last? The effects of that type of massage don’t last very long at all. Truth be told, therapeutic massage is way more than just a “treat” or a luxury, with it’s lasting effects, it’s almost a necessity!

Think about it, one of the first things we experience in life is a massage; delivery through the birth canal. When a baby or child cries, a mother will hold, rock, and repeatedly pat the child’s back to soothe them; all forms of massage. Even when you injury yourself, you immediately grab the hurt area and rub it; again, massage!

Massage is a natural human reaction and a healing remedy that is well needed by all. The numerous benefits of therapeutic massage not only help us feel better, but they help us to maintain healthy function and overall wellness.

Increased circulation, lowering high blood pressure, calming tight muscles, regulating metabolism, and speeding up recovery are just some of the many benefits of therapeutic massage.

Next time you are contemplating getting a massage and you are resisting because you think you are “spoiling” yourself or “overindulging,” think again! Think about relieving stress, having more energy, and moving, feeling, and just being better overall.

Massage offers so much for your health and if you don’t believe me, just read what others have to say by their testimonials!
