5 Reasons Why You Need To Book A Massage
Oftentimes we choose self-care acts that make us look good and/or produce instant gratification.
We choose to focus on what’s visible to others rather than working on our internal foundation.
We take a steady stream of medications instead of setting aside time to allow our bodies to rest and reset.
We’re stuck in the cycle of being reactive to discomfort rather than breaking the cycle and choosing to be proactive.
So here are 5 reasons you should book your massage this week.
Positive Touch is Powerful
Massage reminds us what it feels like to feel good and we often desperately need that reminder.
Massage allows the body to feel safe, protected and stress free by increasing our feel good hormones like serotonin and decreasing our stress hormone, cortisol.
Support Immune System
High cortisol levels can suppress the immune system. Massage supports the immune system by allowing the body to come back to homeostasis.
Massage promotes the production of serotonin, which is then turned into melatonin in the brain. Melatonin regulates and promotes a healthy sleep cycle.
Allowing the body to relax and experience comfort improves the immune system and sleep cycle, which then increases alertness and the ability to focus.
