Women reaping the benefits of a massage I love getting a massage. Yet, I’m always surprised to learn how many women have never had a real massage. Often times (certainly not always), this reaction to massage is due to issues around self and size acceptance. Most of us spend a lot of time and consideration disguising our lumps and bumps, only to visit a perfect stranger, disrobe (you don’t have to by the way), and let them go where no man has gone before – even if you’ve begged him to!

If legitimate shyness is keeping you from having one of the most wonderful experiences in your life…

Consider this:

  • Massage reduces stress
  • Massage provides general relaxation
  • Massage reduces muscle tension throughout the body
  • Massage can relieve acute and chronic pain
  • Massage can promote recovery from muscle fatigue and from minor aches and pains
  • Massage reduces swelling
  • Massage improves blood circulation
  • Massage can increase oxygen capacity of the blood
  • Massage induces better lymph movement
  • Massage can increase mobility and range of motion of joints
  • Massage stimulates or soothes the nervous system
  • Massage can enhance the condition of the skin
  • Massage can assist with better digestion and intestinal function
  • Massage can aid in improving physical health and the quality of life
  • Massage feels really GOOD!

There are other benefits you can receive from regular massage.  You can also get more information about massage, therapies, techniques and what to expect from a credited massage therapist at The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).
