It is extremely important to stay in touch with your body and mind, from your skincare routine to nail care to work-life balance. The long-term effects of good self-care always pay off. One option for self-care with many wonderful benefits is getting a massage. The goal of massage therapy is to ultimately slow down your nervous system, this can bring relief from symptoms, heal injuries, and offer wellness.
Massages have proven to be helpful for many reasons. One reason is that massages lower stress, including tension headaches. Massages can also relieve tension in the rest of the body. Massages can also increase immune function by creating natural activity within the body to fight viruses.
Getting regular massages is the best way to boost one’s immune system. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that massage boosts patients’ white blood cell count, which plays a crucial role in defending the body from disease. Regular massages also increase one’s levels of serotonin and dopamine, which means you feel less stress, anxiety, and depression. When your body isn’t working as much to combat those issues, it can put more energy into fighting off illness.
Different types of massages have different outcomes. Swedish is useful for those deeper pressure points while a CBD massage offers anti-inflammatory properties leaving you zen and relaxed. Jlounge Natural Nail Bar & Spa offers a variety of massages including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, CBD and pre- and postnatal. This range of techniques is designed to help one achieve full body relaxation and relief. When you get a massage, work with your massage therapist to customize it to get the most out of it.
