It’s that time of the year when most of us begin to overindulge on festive cheer and let our health be put on the back burner. However, if you want to avoid starting the new year with muscular aches and pains, it’s important to keep up your regular remedial massages. Here are 3 reasons to book in today!
1) Regular remedial massages reduce stress
Let’s face it, Christmas shopping is not everyone’s cup of tea. Buying presents for the kids and old aunt Martha can be time-consuming and stressful. The good news is remedial massage can help relieve stress. How, we hear you ask? During the treatment, your body releases endorphins, the brain chemicals that give you a feeling of wellbeing. At the same time, nasty stress hormones like adrenalin and cortisol decrease. Those terrible memories of wrestling over a pair of gloves in the shopping centre will soon become a distant memory after a session with us!
2) Regular remedial massages improve circulation
If you need to give your circulatory system a kick-start after all the Christmas pudding and pies, we can help. Remedial massage stimulates blood supply, while also boosting your lymphatic system. In other words, your body will be better equipped to eliminate waste, with a little help from us. You can find other tips for boosting your lymphatic system here.
3) Regular remedial massages boost your immunity
The Christmas period can be hectic, with so many functions to attend. If you’re burning the candle at both ends, you may become rundown and be more inclined to get sick. Clinical studies have shown that regular remedial massage helps strengthen the body’s immune system response. Massage reduces stress hormones, thereby allowing the immune system to function the way it should.
We are open throughout the festive season, aside from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. To see who’s available, please browse the online booking system here.
From all of us at Muscle Freedom, we wish you a safe and happy Christmas break!
