3 Reasons to Schedule a Massage this Spring


From muscle recovery to improved mood, there are many reasons to schedule a massage this time of year.

1. Athletes of all fitness levels can benefit from massage

Are you training for a marathon or joining a softball league? Studies show massage may potentially reduce muscle tension and stiffness, increase range of motion, decrease swelling and enhance athletic performance.

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.

3. Share the health benefits of massage with Mom

Mother's Day is coming up on May 8. Search for a trusted massage therapist  who offers gift certificates at FindaMassageTherapist.org. Related: 5 Reasons to Give Mom the Gift of Massage
