Regular Traverse City Massage vs. Occasional Massage
Eating healthy only when you’re sick, or taking vitamins only when you have suffered an injury is not the best approach to improving your health and wellbeing. The same can be said for only booking a massage when you feel rotten. Studies have proven that there are significant added benefits to receiving regular massages. Just one more reason to book several Traverse City massage appointments at DISCOVER Massage.
Regular massage provides you with a wide range of health benefits. If you want to be proactive about your physical and mental health, consider booking regular massage appointments instead of only when you have sustained injury or received a gift certificate. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
What regular massage does for your body
Life can be stressful, no matter what your journey. Therapeutic touch through massage helps in a variety of ways. These include:
- Managing stress and pain
- Reducing headaches and migraines
- Reducing tension and muscle tightness, including back strain and joint pain
- Improving mental clarity and focus
- Reducing fatigue and even helping combat insomnia
- L0wer blood pressure and boosting the immune system
- Mitigating symptoms of depression by naturally raising mood-elevating body chemicals such as serotonin
Translate results into reality
While occasional massage is relaxing and offers these benefits, it will not improve your overall health as much as regular massage will. Just as proper diet and exercise need to be part of your daily life to truly optimize their benefits, massage at regular intervals will do more for your wellbeing.
The benefits are recognized
Many corporations and employers are recognizing the benefits of massage and more employees now have insurance coverage that will cover a certain amount of massage each year. When physicians prescribe massage some HMOs will share the cost, so check to see if you have any coverage that will allow you make regular massage part of a healthy lifestyle. With increased coverage you may be able to book monthly or more frequent massage to help you feel your best. The Traverse City massage therapists at DISCOVER Massage are happy to provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance.
