Treat your body like your car!

Every 10,000kms we generally have our car serviced.  Why do we do this?  To catch small problems before they become bigger problems.  In other words we adhere to the theory that a stitch in time, saves nine.

However most don’t apply this same logic to the body.   Your body, like your car, is under constant stress.  Poor posture, computer work, dietary factors, stress and everyday wear and tear are all felt and held somewhere in your body.  For some it is experienced as headaches, migraines, or muscular pain (neck, back, shoulders, legs) and others are simply unaware until an injury occurs.   

Regular massage every 4 to 6 weeks, like a regular car service, helps keep your body functioning like a well-oiled machine.  The many therapeutic benefits of a regular massage may include:

  1. Alleviating muscle pain
  2. Improve range of movement
  3. Enhancing immunity by stimulating lymph flow, the body’s natural defence system.
  4. Reducing depression and anxiety.
  5. Pumping oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  6. Relaxing and softening injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  7. Releasing endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  8. Relieving occurrences of headaches and migraines.
  9. Helping to manage symptoms of stress
  10. Enhancing quality of sleep.
  11. Increasing energy.
  12. Improving concentration.
  13. Reducing fatigue and
  14. Allowing you to feel a little special.  

Remember there are alternatives to using your car, public transport, walking, cycling however you only have one body.  Look after it!
