Oh no, such a yukky weekend with the weather, but the forecast looks brighter. Time for a bit of a lesson on why massage is good for you......
Massage is a wonderful antidote to stress and a powerful way to relax. It allows you to switch off that nagging voice inside your head, to unwind from the overwork, rush and worries that compound, encourages you to breathe deeply and slowly and eases out the tension found in tight muscles. Through the act of relaxation we stimulate a part of the brain (the parasympathetic nervous system) that slows down the heart rate, the rate of breathing, lowers blood pressure and stimulates digestion and immunity.
Massage can literally soothe our nerves and produce a feeling of well being.
Now doesn't that make you want to have one? But wait there's more..... tune in at a later date for the next installment of Why Massage is Good For You.
