The pressures of the holiday season are in full force with no end in sight until after the New Year. Between decorating, shopping for gifts, entertaining guests, dinner parties, and more, it’s likely you just don’t have time for yourself. Taking time for yourself is important for your health and well being. A perfect way to de-stress is with a professional massage at HQ Salon & Spa.
It’s a given that massage helps to relax the muscles. However, it also reduces levels of cortisol which is a stress hormone that can lead to difficulties in sleeping, headaches, and even weight gain.
Regular massages can prevent muscle spasms that lead to elevated pain in injured tissue. It also helps your body release endorphins which naturally acts to remove pain from your body.
Improve Circulation & Immune System Function
Help to improve blood circulation to your muscles and improve lymph fluid circulation, which allows your body to effectively carry away waste products. As the body relaxes, sleep improves, stress is minimized, and your immune system improves helping the body fight against infections and bacteria.
Lower Blood Pressure
When you consistently have professional massages, they can help to reduce blood pressure levels. Healthy blood pressure relieves anxiety, tension, and stress.
Stress is normal during the holiday season but it doesn’t have to take over your body. Take a little time for yourself with a massage at HQ Salon & Spa. Once you’ve experienced one of our massages, you’ll definitely see the health benefits of continuing regularly.
