Whether it’s the pain in your lower back, the cramp you got while working out, or the stress on your mind- a massage is the way to go. It seems there is almost nothing that a good rub-a-dub-dub can’t help, from pain, to joint flexibility, to insomnia , to emotional and mental stress. An increasing amount of research has shed light on the myriad benefits of the occasional (or regular) massage. Far from being just a luxury, massages are now being seen as a means to physical and mental wellbeing.

Picking the right kind of Massage

There is a wide variety of massages out there, from Shiatsu to Swedish, each with its own set of benefits. Figuring out what suits you best is step one. Research it well, talk to you masseuse and make an informed decision.

What’s your poison?

An oil massage is amazing by itself, but picking the right kind of massage oil for your needs can take the experience to a whole new level. The properties of different oils can solve problems specific to you, whether it is essential oils like lavender to relax you, or lemon grass to rejuvenate your senses. You can get adventurous and explore what’s out there!

Stress Busting Miracle

 Experts estimate that more than 90% of diseases are stress related. A massage can do wonders to drive stress away, and if done regularly, keep it away. Endorphins (the happy hormone), are released when you get a massage, which ensures the end of both physical and emotional stress. By improving blood circulation, it helps you sleep better and concentrate well.

Not Just a Luxury!

It is very likely that you hit the gym regularly (or plan on doing so), in a world where fitness is on the rise. So it is important to know that massages can be a powerful tool in your healthcare routine, by increasing joint flexibility and keeping your muscles healthy and safe from wear and tear. A lot of fitness institutes have in-house masseuses, for this very reason.


Show me some love

Giving a massage to your partner is a great way to bring you closer together, while being a potent aphrodisiac. Make it an extra thoughtful gift this Valentine’s Day, or a weekly tradition!

It is advisable to go to renowned spas/masseuses, in order to take care of your body and be safe. Millions of people world over are turning to massages, thanks to the increasing evidence of how they work miracles on your body. So join the bandwagon, and give it a whirl!
