Whew! Feeling stressed? It’s that time of year where everyone becomes busier and the hustle and bustle of the season is wonderful and hard all at the same time.

Can Santa please leave some more hours in the day under the tree?

Spending time with friends and family is what it is all about, but preparing everything in order to get to that special time takes a lot of effort. Travel, shopping, planning, cooking…Ok making that short list is even tiring.

Finding time for yourself and some much needed self-care is a great way to combat fatigue when the busy times arrive.

Massage therapy truly is a magical time you can give yourself to sloooooooowwwwwww down and reconnect with yourself. It’s like waving a magic wand over your stress and watching it melt away.

It’s also a great gift for those other bustling people in your life.

Taking time to slow down seems counterintuitive to being able to get more done—but it’s true.

The Benefits of Massage Therapy for Stress

Some people think about massage therapy when they are hurt or achy (or they get a gift certificate as a gift.) Massage certainly helps with injury but let’s also consider it a tool for stress management.

Regular massage, once a month or every couple of weeks, is a great way to manage stress and allow some regular time for self-care.

Sure, a massage here and there a couple times of year is wonderful. But regular massage is maintenance for your body and your soul.

Here are a few things that massage does for you:

  • Eases sore and tight muscles

  • Improves circulation

  • Boosts immune system

  • Promotes better sleep

  • Manages anxiety

  • Allows the body to truly relax
