It’s officially Spring, and temperatures are finally starting to rise across the country as flowers bloom, pollen spreads, and your garden calls for attention. Before you get to work this Spring, make sure your back is in good shape to handle your workload.
Maybe you’re ready for spring, as many people often are, or maybe you’re feeling a bit rushed with spring’s arrival. Either way, this moment, be it in winter or spring, summer or fall, is always the perfect time to listen to what your body, mind, heart and soul is telling you. Maybe you’re feeling a bit sluggish waking up from your long winter’s nap, or trying to break the winter doldrums by adding a little “spring” into your step. There’s nothing quite like an invigorating and therapeutic massage to clear out the mental and physical cobwebs, shake off the winter blues, and help you “spring” back to life.
Anytime is a great time for a professional, therapeutic, relaxing, restorative and healing massage. Transitioning from winter into spring is the perfect time for a massage, giving your body, and your mind, an opportunity to relax, renew, refresh and reconnect. Not only that, but with the arrival of spring, signaling that summer is around the corner, now is a great time to prepare your body for the active outdoor months ahead.
Massage is often misunderstood, with people thinking it is a luxury, and that it’s all about pampering. Nothing could be further from the truth. Therapeutic massage offers many benefits, from pain and stress management to anxiety reduction and improved flexibility in muscles and joints. Doctors often prescribe massage for their patients, finally recognizing the proven multiple therapeutic benefits derived from appropriate, professional massage.
As research continues on the efficacy of massage, more evidence continues to support the effectiveness of appropriate, therapeutic massage on many physical and mental health conditions. Self-massage is also another tool often encouraged, as it is a wonderful addition to our self-care practice to help ourselves feel better, stay healthy and enjoy life.
Schedule an appointment today with a licensed, professional massage therapist, and spring into abundant health and well-being. Your body will love you for it, and your mind will enjoy the peace, calm and quiet, and the opportunity to release both excess mental chatter and clutter.
