As I mentioned in a previous post, one of my New Years resolutions is to work on my health and overall wellness. To achieve that, I have started to exercise more and drink more water. But my health journey doesn't stop there, I've learned about how massages can also contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

The Benefits Of Massage Therapy

  • Alleviates low-back pain and improves range of motion.
  • Assists with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers 
  • Eases medication dependence.
  • Enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercises and stretches weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Improves the condition of the skin.
  • Increases joint flexibility
  • Lessens depression and anxiety.
  • Promotes tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pumps oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, which improves circulation.
  • Reduces postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduces spasms and cramping.
  • Relaxes and softens injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Releases endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieves migraine pain.

Experts estimate that nearly 90% percent of disease is stress related. This high stress can be aging us faster, internally and externally. A massage can help manage stress and contribute to:

+ Decreased anxiety

+ Enhanced sleep quality

+ Greater energy

+ Improved concentration

Don't know who to turn to for a great massage? If you're in the Western Chicago suburbs, I recommend Veronica Esparza from Massage by V. Book your massage or couples massage here.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd definitely prefer a couples massage over a box of chocolates this Valentine's Day. <3
