Unwind After the Holidays with a Massage

26 Dec Posted by in Blog, Massage | Comments Off on Unwind After the Holidays with a Massage

During the holidays we are running around trying to get gifts for the important people in our lives and prepare holiday meals.  There also seem to be more parties and things to do during the month of December.  Once the holidays are over, one great way to unwind and decrease or levels of stress is with a massage.

The first benefit that comes to mind when we think about massages is stress relief.  When we are stressed out, we have increased heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels.  In as little as an hour and a half massage session, studies have shown a significant decrease in heart rate, cortisol and insulin levels which leads to lower levels of stress.  Massage has also been proven to decrease anxiety, enhance sleep quality, increase our energy levels, improve our concentration, increase circulation and reduce fatigue.  All of these benefits can also decrease our levels of stress.

Although we are unable to eliminate all of the anxiety and pressure in our lives, especially around the holiday season, we are able to take some time out for ourselves and decrease some of our stress.  If you are interested in getting a massage, contact Space Coast Massage & Spa at 321-729-9000 to schedule your appointment.
