When things get “tough”, people see something like going to the spa as an extra, inessential splurge however during this time you need to make sure taking care of yourself in this way is truly essential to your health and success!
Five health benefits of going to the spa (in this case, for a massage)
:1) It reduces stress hormone levels .Several studies have shown that massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which among many other benefits helps slow your heart rate, and brings your blood pressure down.
2) It boosts your immunityBy reducing stress and stress hormones, massage boosts the levels of “natural killer cells” in your body, which are your first defense against invaders. Massage has been shown to even boost immunity in people with severely decreased immune systems, such as patients with breast cancer.
3) It’s a great pain relieverWhether you’ve got muscular pain, chronic headaches or a migraine, or even labor pains (!), massage has been shown to significantly decrease and relieve pain. I once had a headache three days in a row, a sign that I was trying to do too much in too little time. A one hour massage cured the headaches completely!
4) It boosts your mood as if a wonderful, healing, relaxing visit to a spa wasn’t enough (by just walking in the door), treatments such as massage increase your brain’s level of feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin.
5) It relieves PMS symptoms! A recent study of a group of women with severe PMS found that massage reduced a variety of symptoms such as pain, water retention, and mood swings.
