What does having a massage mean to you? Relaxation? Stress Relief? Back pain relief? These are probably the first things that come to mind. Although these are all important benefits of massage, we would like to share with you the many alternative benefits that may not come to mind as quickly.
The physical benefits of massage are perhaps the most commonly understood, particularly among medical staff, fitness trainers and active athletes (see our blog below on the benefits of sports massage). Previous studies in these fields have shown how massage can improve both your muscular system and your skeletal system, but you don’t have to be a sport fanatic or an exercise maniac to understand that massage can provide you with improved joint flexibility, relief from muscle tension, stiffness and pain from injury. People of all strengths, builds and ages suffer from joint stiffness or muscle aches, and regular massage can help this. Many of our customer testimonials will say the same… http://www.zenergy.ie/zenergy-testimonials-dublin
You will be glad to know that massage boasts numerous health benefits too. There has been tons of research studies carried out by health organizations on the effects of massage therapy on specific health problems. Regular massage has been linked with boosting your immune system which will help you to fight off that common cold. If you suffer from asthma, a recent study showed that massage may improve respiratory flow in asthma patients. Massage can also be particularly helpful for people living with more serious illnesses, like cancer, as it can relieve fatigue, pain, anxiety, and depression in these patients. Massage also relieves symptoms of PMS such as bloating and mood swings, women in particular will be glad to know (and everyone else who has to deal with those mood swings!). If you suffer from tension headaches or migraines, as many of you stressed individuals out there do, we highly recommend having an Indian Head Massage to relieve this pressure on your head, neck, and shoulders. A 30 minute Indian Head Massage costs just €30 at Zenergy.
For all of you who have ever dozed off on one of our massage tables, you will find this proves that massage also promotes sounder sleep! Whether it’s emotional stress, physical pain or just plain fatigue, these can all interfere with your sleep. Massage helps to reduce stress, release tension, improve circulation, improve your digestive system, and in turn its relaxing effects will help you get a better night’s rest.
Another great benefit is the improvement of your skin after a massage. The rhythm and motion of massage increases blood flow in the body which plumps up your skin, improves your skin tone, and reduces cellulite and wrinkles. We offer Anti-cellulite/ Lymphatic massage here at Zenergy for just €45 that will get rid of toxins in your body and promote more youthful skin.
Some types of massage, such as holistic massage or Reiki, focus on releasing emotional issues and calming the emotions through the element of touch. This emotional healing leads to a positive state of mind and spiritual awareness that may reduce your level of anxiety and ease feelings of depression. Many of our massage therapists here at Zenergy practice this holistic approach and strongly believe in the ability of massage to promote a client’s emotional and mental wellbeing.
If you would like to experience these fantastic benefits of massage or improve these areas of your health, we have a wide range of massages available here at Zenergy, including Swedish, Thai, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, Holistic, Indian Head, Hot Stone massage, Pregnancy massage and Reiki. All of our massages are extremely affordable at just €45 for one hour treatment (exception is Hot Stone Massage which is €55 per hour). To really feel the full benefits of massage, it is best to have regular massage sessions at least once a month. We offer a course of 5 massages for €200, that’s only €40 each or looked at another way the fifth one for €20! So why not try one of the above and see what massage can do for you…
