We live in a busy world, and all the stress of your everyday life can add up and weigh on you. If you haven’t been giving yourself enough time for self-care, you’re not alone. Every year, millions of Americans make new year’s resolutions to devote more time and effort to self-care, but by February, their careers, household management, and other obligations take over.
You don’t have to go on a vacation or make dramatic life changes to start feeling renewed. At Olson Family Chiropractic, our licensed massage therapist offers relaxing massage to help you get your mind, body, and spirit in alignment. Here are some of our favorite reasons you should treat yourself to a one-hour massage:
1. It’s Good for Your Immune System.
If you’re worried about keeping your head up during the end of cold and flu season, massage is a good and fast way to give your immune system a little boost. You might be surprised to learn that massage is great for your immune system. What we used to see as a little treat can actually get your blood flowing and stimulate your lymphatic system. It can also help you heal faster when there’s an injury.
2. It Will Help With Your Aches and Pains.
If there’s one thing your chiropractors see every day is how much of a toll everyday hustle and bustle can have on a person’s body. A massage is a chance to give your body a much-needed break and give those tense muscles and tired joints a little recharge.
3. It’s Great for Anxiety and Depression.
If you suffer from anxiety or depression, you know it can touch every aspect of your life. That’s because your mind and body are interconnected. The healing benefits of massage to ease the symptoms of both depression and anxiety are well documented. That’s because massage helps lower the body’s stress response, which is linked to both depression and anxiety.
4. It’s Faster Than a Vacation.
Let’s face it. You deserve a vacay on a lovely cruise ship or watching jewel-blue waters lap at a golden shore. But who has time for all that? A massage is like a little mini-vacation where you get to focus on taking care of only one person for a while. And you won’t even have to worry about losing your luggage.
