We know that summer can be a time of high-paced living and we often neglect the important things like self-care and relaxation time. Massage therapy is a great way to combat seasonal strain and stress, but it's also incredibly important to remember your at-home self-care options like regular stretching, ice, herbal remedies, fresh foods, and when necessary, quality health-food supplements. If you feel yourself tightening up, the best option is to make time to stretch to prevent injury. If you are uncertain which stretches are best for your particular pain complaint, give us a call, we'd be happy to help you find stretches that best target your trouble areas.
Additionally, regular massage is well proven to prevent injury too! When you schedule at The Great Escape, each session is accompanied with free stretching and strengthening recommendations for your particular problem areas. As pain can often be caused by over-use, so too pain can be triggered by underuse. Sometimes pain can be a result of nutritional deficiencies, and very often it can be a result of dehydration. Whether your suffering from one, or all, we can help you find a home-care regimen to help you as you need it most. If you've done all you can do and still need some extra TLC, or if you simply know it's time to take a much needed break from the summer activities to rest and rejuvenate, the give us a call and schedule your session today!
Until we meet again, take good care and enjoy the beautiful summer!
