Benefits of Massage in Winter

By November 27, 2019News

Temperature is dropping and your starting to feel the energy drain out of you, the sniffles are emerging and you’re using a lot more moisturiser than usual. Bringing anyone in particular to mind?

Winter can take a toll on your body and we’re here to fix that. We offer a range of massages from sports massages to deep tissue massages and encourage you to try one during this chilling season. Not only will one of our massages bring you to complete relaxation there are many health benefits that I’d like to discuss: 

  • Winter air is dry and cold which can reduce the moisture in the skin leaving it dehydrated and lifeless. We use oils that lock in the moisture making the skin feel fresh, soft and full of life.
  • Have you ever noticed when you’re standing out in the freezing cold your hands begin to drain of colour and start to go numb? This is due to your blood supply focusing its attention on your main organs to keep them warm. This reduces the circulation in your body resulting in higher blood pressure. Getting a massage increases circulation due to the increased pressure placed on the muscles stimulating blood flow through the body lowering your blood pressure. 
  • Time to get the tissues out because it’s that time of year again where the cold and flu attacks. Getting a massage can help build up the immune system giving you the strength to fight off the illnesses. The massage triggers the lymph flow which helps clear the old red blood cells and removes the antigens at the same time making you feel healthier and back to your ‘normal’ self. 
  • In the winter, days become darker and shorter and you feel like your days are slipping away. This can make you feel down and unmotivated to do things you usually enjoy. Having a massage can revitalise your mind and give you the energy you’ve lost. Having a massage focuses your senses putting you in a state of pure relaxation and lowers the levels of cortisol in the blood. Cristol is a stress hormone which leads to things such as anxiety, memory loss and other mental health issues.
