Today's Small Change: Treat Yourself.

There's the Rub

As anyone who has had one will tell you, there's nothing quite like a massage when you're feeling stressed or overworked. In fact, massage is more than just a feel-good practice — it seems to have health benefits too. So whether you're a devotee or just a novice, why not treat yourself to a massage at Skinsational Skin and Body Spa today?!?

While the art of massage has been around for thousands of years, it's now being used to encourage relaxation and treat conditions such as sports injuries and arthritis. Studies have shown that massage helps reduce back pain, nausea, and anxiety, lessens insomnia, and reduces lymphedema (painful swelling caused by buildup of fluid). Massage can also improve range of motion, increase lymph flow (which helps the body filter out waste toxins), boost energy, and promote the release of endorphins, which make you feel good.

There are many different massage techniques. Swedish massage uses different strokes depending on the purpose of the massage. Deep-tissue massage uses slow strokes and pressure to relieve knotted, tense muscles. Myofascial massage involves gentle stretching to help injuries heal. Be sure to discuss what kind of massage you are looking for with us before we  the massage.

While massage is usually performed with the recipient unclothed (but draped with a sheet or towel) and lying down, you can also enjoy a seated massage, in which the practitioner works on you through your clothes.

So come on into Skinsational Skin and Body spa and treat yourself today!
