4 Reasons to Schedule a Massage this Spring

From muscle recovery to allergy relief, there are myriad benefits to scheduling a massage therapy appointment this time of year.

1. Athletes of all fitness levels can benefit from massage. Are you training for a marthon or joining a softball league this spring? Studies show massage may reduce muscle tension and stiffness, increase range of motion, decrease swelling and enhance athletic performance.

2. Massage for seasonal allergy relief. Allergy season ramps up in the spring as trees and plants begin to bloom. Massage therapy may help with the symptoms that acccompany seasonal allergies.

3. Boost your mood with massage therapy. May is Mental Health Month, and research indicates the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression may be positively affected with massage.

4. Share the health benefits of massage with Mom. Mother's Day is coming up on May 10. Search for a qualified massage therapist  who offers gift certificates at FindaMassageTherapist.org.
