The festive season is almost here! While it is a fun and social time, many of us are also dealing with the stress of busy schedules and end-of-year burnout.
During this period, it’s important you continue to look after yourself and enjoy some much-needed time out. Today we will explain 3 reasons massage can help you feel your best these holidays!
1. Look after your body
We all know how stressful the end of the year can be. There are often work parties, social events and end-of-year celebrations for yourself and your family. Plus if you are looking forward to a much-needed holiday break, it’s easy to feel the burnout creeping in.
Often this can have a negative impact on our bodies: think tension in the neck and shoulders, muscle strain and headaches. Fortunately, our massage services can help to reduce knots and tension, minimise pain, encourage blood flow and ensure the body is functioning optimally.
If your body is feeling sore, tight or tense, we recommend trying a remedial massage or our new Thai massage to help you get moving again!
2. Take some time to relax
Taking some time to fill our cup and prioritising self-care during busy times is key to feeling our best. In fact, our mental health can also impact our physical health. When we are feeling stressed, our sympathetic nervous system is activated, leaving us more susceptible to becoming sick or rundown.
If you are craving some much-needed time out, we recommend booking in for a relaxation or hot stone massage. These services use ultra-calming techniques, warmth and gentle pressure to ease muscle tension and leave you feeling very relaxed – in fact many of our clients find themselves drifting off to sleep!
These treatments can also help to improve sleep quality after your treatment so you can move through the end of the year feeling calm and refreshed. Take some time for yourself and book a massage now!
3. Feel your most confident
With Christmas comes warmer weather, beach days and getaways! We all want to feel our most confident over summer – whether it’s popping on our bathers for a swim or choosing an outfit for a special occasion!
Our signature M1 Lymphatic Method is a great choice for anyone who is experiencing bloating, fluid retention or cellulite. We use manual massage techniques that move the lymphatic fluid towards the lymph nodes. The lymph fluid then gets sucked up like a vacuum, processing through the liver and kidneys before being eliminated via bowel movements and urination over the next 1-2 days.
You may feel a bit tired after the massage due to the toxins moving around however once these are eliminated by the body your energy levels will increase. After the first 24-48 hours, you may feel lighter, less bloated, more energised, and experience better quality sleep.
Other benefits include:
• Improved muscle definition
•Increased energy levels
• Reduced bloating
• Reduction in excess fluid
• Stimulated lymphatic system
• Reduction in the appearance of cellulite
• Improved sleep quality
Generally, a massage a week for 3 weeks, then monthly maintenance is recommended for best results. This means now is the perfect time to get started so you can look and feel your best these holidays!
