Benefits of Massage

| July 22, 2019 | No Comments

Living a healthy lifestyle often includes eating balanced meals and snacks, getting plenty of rest, drinking enough water, and exercising regularly. A healthy lifestyle also means fitting in some self-care on a regular basis, which can come in the form of a massage at the Spa at Forma. A day at the spa is often a luxury for most of us, but we think it should become a regular occurrence. 

What are the benefits of massage?

Improves Mobility

Sports Massage isn’t just for athletes. Sports Massage also increases your range of motion, decreases muscle stiffness and tension, and enhances your overall athletic performance. Getting a massage can improve your overall performance inside and outside of the gym.

Reduce Pain

As we get older and spend more time seated, we are more prone to aches, pains, and injuries. Getting a massage can release all that tension and roll out those knots that accumulate over time.

Relieve Stress

Massage can be a powerful tool for relieving stress. Getting a massage can lower your heart rate, reduce your blood pressure, relax your muscles, and increase your endorphins. Even one single massage session can lower stress levels and give you those feel-good chemicals.

Improves Mood

Touch helps your skin come alive and relaxes your entire body. So whether you get a massage, facial, or other skin therapy treatment, taking time to clear your mind and let professionals work on you will help you tackle whatever the rest of your week may hold.
