Why we love a great massage

Spa massage outdoorWhen it comes to doing something for yourself, it’s a necessity to help you keep doing what you need to do. You love your job. You love your family. You love your friends. You love your routine. But to meet all of your responsibilities and actually enjoy life, you have to make sure you are taking time for yourself.

Getting a massage is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Here’s why we love a great massage – and you will too:

1. Relax.

Did you know taking time to relax is important to your well-being? Don’t you look forward to those times when you can just set aside the day-to-day worries and relax? Massage is a great way to do just that! Our massage therapists begin each session with a short consult, you can let your therapist know that your goal is to relax. You can even add the scent of a locally made candle to be lit during the massage.

2. Refresh.

Did you know you will be more productive and better able to problem solve if you get away from work and do something for yourself for a little while? Research has shown that taking breaks helps, and getting a massage is the perfect choice! Not only will your body feel refreshed, but your mind will be rejuvenated as well.

3. Restore.

Did you know that massage has health benefits? Really. Massage is about much more than relaxation. Massage therapy can help treat a long list of health issues. According to Mayo Clinic, these include: anxiety, digestive problems, fibromyalgia, headaches and even insomnia. In addition, massage therapy can address pain (including back and neck pain) and injuries (including muscles strains and sports injuries). Massage can help restore your body.

Getting a massage isn’t just about taking the time to get away from everything. It is about taking the time to make sure you are ready for anything.

Enjoying the fresh air and sunshine?

When people are able to get outdoors, they engage in more physical activity. Good news – considering how important that activity is to your health. And the fresh air and vitamin D are great for you, too.

But what about the aches, pains and strains that are a normal part of physical activity? You don’t have to let them keep you down. We can help. Here’s how:

Massage services.

We offer a full range of massage services, including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage and sports massage. A Swedish massage will focus on relaxation, relieving tension and loosening minor muscle knots. A deep tissue massage uses firmer pressure than the Swedish massage and may focus on specific areas or can be a full-body experience. A sports massage combines several techniques to assist in muscle recovery and relieve pain and soreness.

Chiropractic services.

Dr. Timothy Barry likes to focus on the family and sports chiropractic. Whether you are an athlete who maintains the same level of physical activity year round or someone who enjoys being active with friends on the weekends, Dr. Barry looks forward to seeing you. His priority is to help you make an informed health choice for yourself and your family. So give him a call if you have any questions about chiropractic, sports injuries, rehabilitation or stretching at 615.283.4257.

Salon services.

When you head outdoors, it is important to keep your hair and skin healthy, too. Sun and wind can be hard on your hair and skin. We have a wide range of services to address your needs. For example, the Luminous “C” & “Sea”® Mask Treatment is excellent for sunbathers and anyone with sun-damaged skin. Our professionals will work with you to choose the perfect products for your skin or hair situation.

It’s the perfect time of year to get out and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. And we’re here to help keep you going strong and looking great while you do it!
