5 Reasons to Try Massage Therapy this Fall

1. Alleviate Cold, Flu, and Allergy Symptoms

Those who deal with seasonal allergies know that pollen and other allergens are very common in the Fall. These allergens can lead to common colds, sore throats, and a variety of other sinus-related conditions. Massage Therapy can increase circulation and boost the immune system by stimulating the production of White Blood Cells to protect your body against harmful germs. Who needs an apple a day when you can get a massage?

2. Arthritis Pain

Weather changes can aggravate joints and intensify painful Arthritis symptoms, making the cool seasons especially unpleasant for those living with the condition. Massage can increase blood flow, loosen muscles, and enhance range of motion to combat pains associated with Arthritis.

3. Soreness from Exercise

You had a healthy, active Summer. Maybe you got into a steady workout routine, did lots of yard work, or tended to your garden. These activities put a lot of stress on your back and knees, which can lead to discomfort down the road. Massages can help increase circulation to the sore muscles in your body and can help alleviate joint and muscle pain.

4. You Traveled

Unless you have perfect posture, odds are you have experienced discomfort in your back and neck following a long drive or flight. Sitting with poor posture can strain your back and neck. A massage can help to ease discomfort caused by poor posture and have you standing up straight in no time! To learn more about how Massage Therapy can help with posture, click here.

5. Perfect Your Sleep Schedule

People look forward to the longer days that come in the Summer months, but few think about the flipside of shorter nights. The Summer may have left you a bit under-rested as you stayed up later and woke up earlier. A massage can help you return to your productive sleep schedule by increasing serotonin levels in the body to produce more melatonin, an important sleep hormone.

Massage Therapy can help relieve tension, soreness, and stress at any time of year. If you’re interested in receiving the benefits of Massage Therapy in the comfort and convenience of your own home, check out our personal massagers here.
