Massage Therapies for Cold Temperature Aches and Winter Blues
Experienced massage therapists understand the remarkable benefits of massage to encourage the release of endorphins. As your body’s own natural pain medication, endorphins interact with receptors that reduce your perception of pain. Endorphins will also trigger a positive feeling to help reduce the stresses that come with the holiday season. Here is a list of the most beneficial massage therapies for cold temperature aches and winter blues:
- Swedish Massage – The methodical gentle circular movements, kneading and long, smooth strokes of a traditional Swedish massage are extremely relaxing. Combined with an expert selection of beneficial essential oils, this massage therapy is the perfect treatment to relieve built-up stress and tension in your muscles.
- Deep Tissue Massage – A Deep Tissue massage reduces pain by loosening muscles that have been bunched up as a defence against the cold. Muscle pain due to cold weather can lead to tension-induced spasms and injury. During a deep tissue massage, your therapist will focus on knotted muscles and tissues to provide relief with decreased stress and increases blood flow.
