There is so much more to a massage than relaxation. While there is nothing wrong with a little me time, massage therapy provides numerous preventative and therapeutic benefits. My mother-in-law introduced me to massage years ago. It started as a simple relaxation plan, but I quickly realized, thanks to Massage Envy Spa Arrowhead, just how much massage meant to my overall stress level and health.
How Massage Helped Me
Most recently massage saved me from visiting and spending large co-pays at the dentist and doctor. I had been suffering for several days before I took action. I was uncomfortable and in a lot of pain, I was sure I was suffering from an ear infection and/or cavity. Pain was radiating from my ear and jaw, down into my neck and shoulders. My arm was completely numb on one side and my hips were tight.
The fantastic massage therapist took the time to discuss a plan to achieve my goals of pain and tension relief. It’s taken me awhile to get from the point of lying on the table and enjoying blissful relaxation, to massage with a purpose. I’ve learned to communicate with my therapist and not be a passive receiver. Massage has become a need more than a want.
