Summer is here! This means that the days are longer and we often spend more time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather. Many of us are taking on extra activities and getting more exercise. This is why Summer may actually be the best time for you to get a massage. Here are 4 benefits to booking your appointment for Vancouver Registered Massage Therapy this summer:
Soothing Exercise Pain
As we get out on the golf course, spend more time biking, walking and swimming, staying hydrated is extremely important. Seeing your massage therapist can also assist in easing those sore muscles and reducing inflammation from extra activity.
Relief from Swelling
The warm weather can cause many things to expand, including your joints. Regular massage is the perfect way to increase blood flow and relieve some of that inflammation.
Disrupted Sleep Schedules
While trying to make the most of the longer days, many of us do not get the proper recommended sleep that is needed. A massage can help to produce more melatonin and serotonin. These relaxing hormones are a wonderful way to ensure you are able to get a relaxing and restful sleep this summer.
We may not have as much time to ourselves as kids are home from school or we are out enjoying more social activities than normal. Booking yourself in for a massage is a great opportunity for you to get some of that valued ‘you time’ this summer.
