Four Reasons to Get a Massage in the Winter Months


Winter is coming quickly whether you like it or not. You have been wishing for it since mid- July, but now that the reality of Winter is around the corner, you begin to regret it. Say goodbye to stress free, long summer days and hello to the short, dry days of the holidays and beyond.  It doesn’t have to be all bad. Though you don’t need them, I have provided you with 4 more justifiable reasons to get a massage this Winter. Do you, your body, and your health a favor… get a massage.

1. Massage therapy is known to boost your immune system.  Studies show that regular massage therapy can boost the body’s number of “killer cells”, making it easier to fight off the many communicable diseases that float around in the Winter months.

2. With shorter, drearier days ahead, Winter can leave you feeling tired and worn out. A good deep tissue massage, can be relaxing as well as uplifting.  Massage therapy is an inexpensive way to beat the winter blues and is a healthy way to relieve stress.

3. With Winter comes dry air, and with dry air comes dry skin.  Massage therapy is proven to stabilize the collagen in your skin and also helps maintain your skin’s elasticity.  Also, whatever type of medium your therapist uses, from lotion to creams to butters, helps to moisturize your skin.  There is a reason why my shea butter budget doubles in the Winter months:)

4. Massage when coupled with warm elements help to warm the body and the soul.  I can’t speak for all massage establishments, but at KLM Massage we incorporate heated elements in the winter months.  Using a heated pad on the table, hot towels, or hot stones in a  massage help to warm cold, rigid muscles and fascia which allows you to get the most out of your massage session.

There you have it! More reasons to treat yourself to much deserved massage. If you feel you don’t deserve it now, then perhaps you will change your mind after your in-laws overstay their welcome this holiday season. Go ahead and book your appointment now. Trust me, you will deserve it.
