Getting regular massages are assumed to be a luxury, something to do on special occasions or when gifted, but that’s not the case. A professional massage every so often does wonders for the body and should become a normal occurrence in your life. Here are six signs you may need to book a massage appointment today.

It’s Been a While
The benefits of getting a massage are most effective if you’re getting treatments on a regular basis. It’s recommended that you make an appointment with a beauty salon or day spa, one like Adore Beauty that offers beauty treatments as well as relaxation, hot stone, and back and shoulder massages, at least once a month. This promotes constant maintenance in working your muscles regularly, but if you’re injured and trying to recover quickly, it’s best to go more often.

Physical Training
If you train frequently in biking, hiking, running or anything else that’s strenuous to your body, then you’d definitely benefit from frequent massages. In order to keep up with your activity of choice, you need to keep your body working properly by getting massages to loosen your tired muscles. This will prevent straining and injuries.

Pained Up
Pain is your body’s way of alerting you that something is wrong. With busy lives, it’s become a habit to ignore the clear signs that we need to slow down and take care of ourselves. Don’t ignore your body anymore, make an appointment to treat yourself at least once a month.

Getting Headaches?
Any pressure in your head begins to occur when the muscles in your shoulders, back and/or head are too tight. Relieving tension in those areas through regular massage treatments should ease the frequency and intensity of your headaches, as well as migraines in some cases. Massage therapy also helps to promote healthy postures, which will help in keeping your muscles relaxed.

Feeling Stiff?
Are your joints too stiff, preventing you from using your full range of motion? If you’re unable to turn your neck or head as far as you used to, or you can’t lift your arms fully, then you’re experiencing muscular restrictions. This can be easily fixed by going through massage therapy, helping to loosen and relax your muscles to regain movement throughout your body.

Sleep Deprivation and Stress
Sleeping allows the body to recover from the day’s movements and strains. Having a consistent good night’s sleep holds many advantages for your body and mind. Getting a massage decreases your stress hormone levels while increasing your endorphin levels, allowing your body to relax and help you sleep better.
