When feeling stressed or overwhelmed, you may book an appointment at the spa. Treating yourself to a massage can be a relaxing experience for the mind and body. Did you know massage therapy can also benefit overall health and wellness?
At Catherine & Company, we offer a variety of treatments to help you feel brand new. Here are a few signs it may be time for a massage therapy appointment.
Muscle Tension & Pain
Muscle overuse, especially in the back or neck from exercise or other physical labor, can cause tension to spread throughout the body.
One option to relieve soreness and discomfort is the Swedish Massage. This classic treatment is a great introduction for someone new to massage therapy. A Swedish Massage can increase circulation, blood flow, loosen tight muscles and improve joint agility.
We all carry physical stress differently, whether in the shoulders, neck or scalp. Tension Relief is another type of massage that is customized to your specific problem areas.
If you are experiencing more intense pain, Deep Tissue Massage not only helps to relieve discomfort but can also increase flexibility and range of motion. It’s a common treatment option for athletes and other physically active individuals.
Mental or Physical Stress
It is very common to feel stress from work, school or everyday life. Massage therapy can be a great way to ease this unwanted tension.
Stress-induced headaches and anxiety can be treated with Aromatherapy, which involves essential oils to balance the body and mind.
A Hot Stone Massage provides a different sensation, with the same overall effect. The use of smooth, ocean-washed stones boosts the relaxation response to provide ultimate comfort.
Pregnancy may come with varying degrees of discomfort. Prenatal Massage uses gentle techniques that are safe for women during all three trimesters. Common aches in the lower back and neck can be treated through Prenatal Massage.
Reflexology is another helpful technique that combines aromatherapy and traditional massage to stimulate pressure points in the feet. Carrying a baby puts more pressure on the body and may cause swollen feet or ankles. Reflexology can help relieve this physical stress.
Catherine & Company provides a peaceful, quiet environment to experience the benefits of message therapy. Our treatments range from 30 to 90 minutes. To learn more or book an appointment, contact us today.
