Just as the seasons change, so do we! And our bodies are feeling it. You may have noticed as the winter season has officially started, that your skin has become more dry due to less humidity in the air, that your circulatory system may have a harder time keeping your hands, feet, nose and ears warm. You maybe notice that your joints have gotten a little stiffer due to the lessened circulation of blood getting to them, and the changing barometric pressure in the atmosphere. Shorter days in the wintertime mean that we are exposed to, and absorbing less, Vitamin D, which affects our immune system, (our ability to fight illness) mood, and energy regulation.
And of course we are all too familiar with how our bodies are more prone to get sick during this challenging time of year.
Massage therapy can be an amazing asset to you during the winter season, in so many ways! Massage will always help boost your immune system as it moves around your lymphatic fluid, and moves around blood to help "clean" out any viruses or bacteria that may otherwise cause infection or illness. True Balance Massage also offers dry brushing, and tutorials on dry brushing, so you can learn techniques to keep your immune system up and running, all year long. (not to mention keep your skin healthy, and glowing!)
True Balance Massage also offers hot foot soaks that help to increase your circulation, obviously mostly to the feet, where circulation often has a harder time reaching when it's colder outside. Besides being a luxurious treat for your feet, it's very therapeutic for the entire body. Infused with your choice of essential oil blends, which make their way into your body through your feet, you'll be feeling the effects of the foot soak all day long, and even longer!
Facial massage can also be a powerful way to help improve your immune system, reduce stress, care for your skin, and reduce nasal congestion that tends to crop up this time of the year. Your facial massage can also have therapeutic essential oils infused into the jojoba oil, so you're getting a double boost of immune-strengthening powers! Try one during your next massage treatment, you will not regret it!
I am here to help you feel your absolute best all year around, and I truly believe in the power of massage to help you stay balanced in the winter seasons.
You do not have to be uncomfortable, sick, or cold this year, use massage to keep you where you want to be!
