5 Reasons Massages Are Underrated

December 16, 2014 Ashley Taylor Anderson

We all know someone who’s a massage evangelist. For those skeptics out there, here are 5 reasons why massages are underrated.

1. Scheduled Quiet Time

For anyone with kids, a massage means guaranteed quiet time for at least 45 minutes. That alone is reason to get excited, even without the massage!

2. Healthy Relaxation

Let’s be honest: Our usual way of coping with stress usually involves less than healthy activities (like inhaling a pint of ice cream in front of the TV). Massages are relaxing and good for you, too.

3. Muscle Pain Management

If you’re of a certain age, chances are that something hurts in your body on a daily basis. Having regular massages can reduce tension and help you manage muscle pain effectively.

5. Time Outside of Time

Ever feel like you’re hurtling through life at 100 miles per hour? A massage can help you slow down, step outside of the hustle and bustle, and savor each minute.
