Getting regular massages for the sake of getting regular massages is one of the best investments in your health you’ll ever make.
Regular sessions with someone who knows your body well is an invaluable asset. Massage therapists spend more time one-on-one (not to mention, literally hands-on) with their clients than any other kind of medical practitioner. They will be more likely to notice a change in your body, mood/function over time, and how your overall health is.
An on-going therapeutic relationship means someone who can reliably help you. With a history and good communication built up over time you will not have to work so ha
rd to get what you need, and in turn your massage therapist will be able to tailor your sessions more accurately to you, regardless of what’s going on for you that day.
Genuine, deep relaxation is a rare experience for many of us in modern society. We live in a culture that rewards over-working, and discourages regular breaks during the day to slow down. The result is a bevy of stress-related health problems. Massage can really help you find a state of deep relaxation, and the practice of receiving massage regularly has exponentially greater benefits – among them: your body can relax sooner in the session and the results will be able to last longer.
