4 Great Excuses To Book A Massage Now
Heading to Mezz Spa might actually help you stay on Plan! Here’s how.
Do you really need a good reason to get a massage? How about this: A growing body of evidence shows that a rub-down can actually be healthy for you. In addition to simply feeling good, it just might help you fight certain illnesses and beat chronic aches and pains.
Here are a few healthy reasons to head to the Mezz Spa today:
It will reduce your stress. Who hasn’t had a bad day — or a bad week — that makes you want to dive face-first into your favorite trigger food? A massage is the perfect way to help reduce anxiety.
It can ease physical pain. Nothing can wreck good gym intentions faster than an aching back or stiff neck. Whether your ache is a result of a chronic pain disorder or because your muscles are sore from your new exercise program, you might want to seek relief at a day spa. Massage has been found to reduce pain and heal sore muscles by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation — and one recent study found that a post-workout massage helped subjects' bodies repair muscle tears faster.
- It will tame PMS. The week before your period comes, you're cranky, have trouble sleeping and are achy. (Doesn't sound familiar? Lucky you!) But there’s relief for your PMS — and it doesn’t involve chocolate. A small study of 24 women with severe PMS found that massage reduced symptoms such as pain, water retention and mood swings. More research is needed to confirm these findings, but if you're choosing between a pint of ice cream and a hot stone massage, we say shut the freezer door and hop on the table!
- It will help you get a good night's sleep. When you feel calm and relaxed, chances are you’ll sleep better. When you sleep better, you feel good — both physically and emotionally. And when you feel good, you know you can do anything.
