Between the shorter days, colder nights, and endless cases of cold and flu going around, staying healthy during the winter can be a struggle. Add to the mix, holiday gatherings that keep us up late indulging in cocktails and cold dark mornings that keep us from our morning runs, and before you know it, you’re feeling tired and run down.

While we can’t speed up the season, we can take steps to safeguard our health in the winter. From soothing sore muscles to boosting our immune systems, therapeutic massage can have a host of healthy benefits to help fight the winter blues!

Stress Relief

Looking for a secret weapon for winter stress relief? While it’s no secret that a massage can be relaxing, the stress-relieving benefits extend way beyond your time on the table. Incorporating regular massage therapy into your routine can help reduce stress and anxiety, lower blood pressure, and even calm your sympathetic nervous system.

Pain Relief

Feeling more achy than usual? During the winter, the cold weather can really do a number on stiff joints; while being stuck inside and moving less can leave us all feeling a bit more achy than usual. Regular massage therapy can help soothe sore muscles and stiff joints while lowering pain and inflammation in the whole body.

Immunity Boost

Feeling a case of the sniffles coming on? Among the many winter woes this time of year can bring, the dreaded cold and flu season often hits us the worst. Between being cooped up inside because of the cold, time changes that mess with our sleep cycles, and the lack of sunlight, winter can take a toll on our immune systems. In addition to stocking up on vitamins and chicken soup, massage therapy may be a helpful immunity boost to incorporate.

Studies have shown regular massage therapy can boost circulation, promote lymphatic flow, and increase lymphocytes — the white blood cells that help fight against infection.

Improved Energy

Feeling like you’d rather hibernate at home than go out? With colder weather, less sunlight, and that inevitable lack of sleep due to holiday schedules and time changes, it’s only natural we’d feel less energetic. A therapeutic massage can help increase blood flow, promote healthy circulation, and help deliver more oxygen to your muscles. All of which can have energy-boosting effects.
