Take Care with Massage Therapy this Spring

Spring is here, and you're probably spending more time outdoors being active. 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. Whether you're training for a marathon or joining a kickball team, studies show massage may help reduce muscle tension and stiffness, increase range of motion, decrease swelling and enhance athletic performance.

2. 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 14, and massage therapy is the perfect gift for mothers of all ages. Search for a trusted massage therapist who offers gift certificates.
