If you are one of the lucky ones living in Austin, Texas — annually voted number one on “Best U.S. Cities to Live” — then you know full well the array of opportunities for self-care. Of them, massage therapy has some of the most benefits.
Massages are good for you in many ways. They increase circulation, lower blood pressure, relieve stress, decrease anxiety, and help to ward off depression. Depression and pain, for example, are closely linked and its often hard to tell which came first. Massage, along with other co-occurring treatments, is crucial to recovery.
Can Massage Therapy Prevent an Injury?
At The Massage Studio, we have a combined 100 years of experience among our therapists and each of us will tell you: there is a stark contrast between those who get a massage on a regular basis and those who don’t. Though scheduling a bodywork session with us once a year is better than none at all, the real benefits of massage come from consistency.
Often, we have clients who come into the Studio with an immediate need and, as always, we are honored to be their choice for wellness and/or recovery. After one or more massage therapy sessions we’re sure to hear, “I feel so much better. I need to make this a priority”. This innate wisdom is our body’s way of telling us to listen up.
Massage therapy as prevention helps you stay on top of your game as you work and play in the best place to live in America! Do yourself a favor, don’t wait until you are hurt or aren’t able to function at your highest capacity. Be kind to yourself and make massage a priority in your wellness plan. Take the first step and schedule your massage treatment at our nearby South Austin location today.
