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.
4. Aromatic Delights
Aromatherapy can help you relax on a whole different level with soothing scents.
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.
