The Benefits Of Massage

Now that we’ve touched on what we have to offer here at Xanadu Med Spa of Fort Collins, let’s talk about why you should get a massage more generally. Sure, most of us don’t need an excuse to be pampered and de-stressed, but maybe you are looking for a way to convince your significant other that it’s time to include massage into your regular wellness routine. Whatever your situation might be, we hope you find these reasons as fascinating as we do!

  • Stress Reduction – Who are we kidding, this is probably the first thing that comes to mind for all of us. Massage naturally reduces stress by physically relieving muscle tension, in addition to other ways we’ll touch on. The beauty of a massage is that the results can be experienced in the hours, days, and sometimes weeks after you’ve had your session. That’s a wonderful thing.
  • Get Rid Of Those Toxins – When you stimulate your body’s soft tissues, it helps your body to release the pent-up toxins through your lymphatic systems and bloodstream.
  • Immune System – That’s right folks; when you stimulate your lymph nodes, it organically recharges your body’s defense system!
  • Improved Balance – Massage can be particularly beneficial for senior citizens who are in need of a restoration of balance. Because falling is such a concern for folks in this demographic, massage is able to increase blood flow to limbs, it also improves the sense of relative position of body parts. This reduces the chance of falling!
  • Improved Sleep – The very fact that you’ve been able to de-stress and relax will likely lead to a better night’s sleep. But when you consider how loosened your muscles will be, you are confident you’ll be able to notice a marked difference the next morning!
  • Fatigue Reduction – In the same vein, massage therapy is widely known to improve mood and sleep. What’s more, the results are cumulative — when you receive consistent treatment, the less fatigue you’ll feel over time.

There are so many more benefits which we haven’t had time to list in today’s post. Among them are improving posture, circulation, blood pressure, and beyond. We hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post and are now feeling inspired to receive the many benefits of massage therapy from one of our therapists here at Xanadu Med Spa. The next time you or a loved one could use a Fort Collins massage, be sure to schedule your appointment with us! We’d love to hear from you.
