The Benefits of Massage

Taking time for yourself to relax and recharge is crucial in today’s fast-paced world. One of the best ways to prioritize self-care is through massage therapy. Massage has been used for centuries to promote healing and relaxation, and it remains one of the most popular forms of self-care today. In this blog post, we’ll explore the many benefits of massage and why it’s so important to prioritize self-care in our lives. Whether you’re a regular spa-goer or new to the world of massage, we invite you to sit back, relax, and discover how massage therapy can improve your overall health and well-being.

We asked our team at Aspira Spa to discuss the benefits and expectations. They have a plethora of information and knowledge. Here are some of their answers to a few frequently asked questions:

What are the benefits of getting a massage?

The benefits of massage can be felt on multiple levels. Not only is the physical body affected by experiencing the detoxifying effects and are tired muscles restored by releasing lactic acid, and other toxic buildup, but psychologically, the effects are also felt through massage’s ability to serve the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. This adds to an overall sense of peace and well-being and calming to the fight or flight response (a.k.a. stress response).  – Heidi

It decreases high stress levels, which is the root of all disease. It also keeps soft tissue pliable resulting in better posture and mobility. – Jhony

What is your favorite Aspira Spa massage and why?

My favorite massage is Sacred Water which consists of a combination of traditional massage, Reiki, and Native American Ceremony using water from Elkhart Lake. According to Native American culture, water from this lake is sacred and holds the spirit of Native American Ceremonies and is considered an honoring and healing session – Yelena

My favorite is Deep Tissue because I love anatomy and bodybuilding, and these are the two blended together around the table into a structural therapeutic massage. – Danny

If someone is new to massage, what would be your advice?

Breathwork during a massage session helps promote relaxation, in return creating a pleasurable experience. – Danny

Run! Don’t walk 😀…allow healing touch to guide you to a whole new way of experiencing rest, relaxation and overall better health. – Heidi

What can I expect getting massaged at Aspira?

Expect to get a great experience by a highly skill professional that truly cares about your overall well-being. – Jhony

At Aspira you can expect a friendly, safe environment, good quality, and different unique varieties of services. – Yelena
