January's massage article

Posted in the first |LIVE|BODY inaugural monthly newsletter this January!

Post holiday stress isn't the only reason to get a massage this winter. Your muscles are on high alert in the cold weather, contracting to conserve body heat. Ever notice that the second you step out in the cold your whole body tenses up, your shoulders are up in your ears until you can get warm? That day to day tension adds up (especially if you sit at a desk all day). A combination of massage treatments and regular stretching can be hugely beneficial.

Another great reason massage treatments can be beneficial this season are the winter blues. Lack of adequate sunlight, dreary, freezing cold weather and the inability to be outside more often can really get you down. Massage has been proven to improve mood and even help relieve clinical depression in some cases when combined with a full treatment plan.

Take your health and happiness seriously and take care of yourself this winter.
