Massage is well known for its immune boosting powers and tension relief. Whilst massage is not a good idea when you are sick, it can be key to bounce back better than ever afterwards.
Despite being at home and on the couch binging the latest on Netflix, your body feels lethargic and zapped of energy after fighting off illness.
This “couch potato” routine can seriously affect our posture, muscles, circulation and energy levels which makes the post-illness journey a tough one. Lucky, Earth and Skin Organic Day Spa is here to help!
We recommend a slow transition back into your busy everyday routine, nutrient rich meals and plenty of water, sunshine, but most importantly a massage.
Yes – a relaxing and therapeutic massage! Here’s why it’s important to have a massage after isolation and fighting COVID-19.
Release Pesky Muscle Tension
That nasty and constant cough can really put strain on your muscles. Muscles around your chest, ribs, shoulders and back can also become tight and strained from sneezing and poor posture.
If you’re feeling tightness and tension in these areas, we recommend our Ancient Stone Massage as it focuses on releasing this type of tension with warm volcanic ancient stones.
Get things moving again
Your poor body is fighting off a serious illness that it can’t perform it’s normal duties of circulation as well as it normally can.
Having a massage will help improve your circulation and increase the white blood cells within your bloodstream. White blood cells are responsible for fighting against unknown substances like bacteria and viruses like covid.
Our Fusion Massage combines our three signature massages to deliver all of the therapeutic beneﬁts and a great option to get your circulation moving well again.
Detox Detox Detox!
When the body is stagnant, your lymphatic system needs all the help it can get to remove the toxins from the body. A massage will open the lymphatic detox pathways to rid the body of any last toxins, pathogens or congestion.
The lymphatic system plays a major role in the body’s immunity so it’s really important to keep enjoying regular massages. Dry body brushing and Gua Sha Massage are a great way to keep the lymphatic system in motion between massages.
Our Contour Massage focuses deeply on detoxing the body and is a great option for your next appointment to help your body recover.
It’s no secret that stress plays a major role in our health. When your body is stressed and constantly in ‘flight or fight’ mode it lowers your immune system by releasing hormones that occupy your immune system. What does this mean? It increases your chances of pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses attacking your body. Eeek!
Regular, relaxing massages every 6-8 weeks will help reduce your stress levels and help increase your overall immune system.
