Have you been getting enough sleep lately? Massage can help!

RckenmassageIt’s more than just a relaxing experience!

It won’t come as a surprise to learn that massage, in many forms, supports good quality sleep. Massage is very much a restorative experience for the human body.

A lot of research shows that just 60 minutes of massage can be equal to a full night’s worth of sleep. The mechanism by which massage helps to establish a more organized sleep pattern isn’t fully understood, but studies consistently report that subjects who are massaged (with a variety of modalities) experience deeper, more restorative, less disturbed sleep. It takes a lot of energy for the body to be feeding muscle tissues with oxygen and to work out that lactic acid. With massage therapy doing the work for you, it becomes possible to have more energy every day because you’re effectively getting twice the sleep you normally would. The bodywork doesn’t even have to take place directly before sleep either; clients report better sleep even several hours after receiving a massage.

“So if you have been struggling with sleep, a hectic work week, extra emotional stress, or increasing aches and pains, a massage could be the perfect treatment for you!”

I have recently expanded my massage services to include Therapeutic, Relaxation and Aromatherapy, so now you can supplement your Kahuna/Hawaiian Treatments with a little something in-between.

Sending you all lots of TLC
