Want to create healthy balance in your mind, body and spirit?
Research suggests that a regular yoga practice, together with regularly-scheduled massage sessions, is a great way to achieve just that. Both massage and yoga offer three key health benefits: increasing circulation, improving flexibility and relieving stress.
Yoga and massage help increase circulation by assisting the blood movement through your body, making room for more oxygen-rich blood that keeps your hands and feet warm while healing injured muscles. This also results in lower blood pressure which improves your overall health and wellness.
The combination of yoga and massage also helps your body become more flexible, with yoga working gradually on increasing your stretching ability and massage helping boost the natural lubricants in connective tissue. A greater range of motion and a more limber body improves your posture and breathing, making everyday activities easier.
Yoga and massage help manage daily STRESS, which while a part of everyday life for many of us, can take a severe a toll on our health.
- Do you maintain a busy schedule?
- Spend extended time in the same position?
- Use the same muscles for repeated movement?
Yoga and massage can provide the kind of relaxation and mild pain relief which results in deeper sleep, better physical and mental performance, and higher energy levels.
Which should come first?
Massage before yoga helps provide the warmth and stretch your muscles may need in order to hold a pose longer. Massage after yoga creates a powerfully relaxing experience, after which you may feel so serene you’ll want to relish that peaceful feeling for the rest of the day.
Achieve the perfect balance between mind, body, and soul. Yoga and massage are both proven methods to enhance overall well-being and experience true calm, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
