Aside from the advantages of taking time for relaxation, massage actually benefits you in many other ways. Studies have shown the physical and mental results of one session, as well as ongoing programs.
Some of those benefits include relieving stress and headaches, strengthening your immune system, improving circulation and posture, lowering blood pressure, increasing flexibility and range of motion, enhancing rehabilitation, and more.
A Swedish massage is the most common choice for a first-time visitor, because it provides therapeutic benefits while also being relaxing. There are many types to choose from, though.
Think of once a month as your baseline. Times of extra physical or mental stress may call for more frequent sessions. Finding time can seem difficult when life is extremely busy, but it's an investment that will pay off by helping you maintain your pre-stress levels of health and wellness. If you want the maximum benefit, twice a month is really optimal.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that the massage is for your benefit. Remember that you can always ask a friendly front desk associate if you have questions before your session begins. If questions arise during your session, the therapist can answer them for you.
When you call to schedule your appointment, you'll want to tell us any preferences you have, like a male or female therapist and what massage type you like. Of course, this is your first massage, so how do you know your preferences? For first-time guests, we recommend a Swedish massage. It's nice and relaxing, plus you still get the therapeutic benefits you're looking for.
