Health Benefits From Massages

Usually, the question “how often should you get a massage” is answered based on several factors such as your physical and emotional state, how stressed you are and of course, your budget. This being said, a question that should precede the one above is, “do you work in Singapore?”.

60% of Singaporean staff experience above average stress

Human Resources magazine reported that “Willis Towers Watson’s earlier 2017 Benefits Trends Survey found that almost half (44%) of local employers identified stress as the number one health issue. In the same vein, 60% of employees admitted to having above average or high levels of stress”. The Business Times reported it here and Population SG did here too. While we can certainly find more references, if you work in Singapore, you’ll know if this is true.

Health Benefits From Massages

  • Massage reduces tension and anxiety, and can help relieve depression.

  • Massage improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

  • Massage stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products.

  • Massage prevents and relieve muscles cramps and spasms.

  • Massage therapy can help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms.

So, if getting a massage can help you de-stress, as well as provide so many health benefits, just how often should you get a massage?

How often?

According to Bellasante, studies have been conducted and the answers are in! A massage every one to two weeks will help combat stress, anxiety and even insomnia. In fact, Well And Good reports that setting aside just an hour a week can even help with your gut health.

Body therapies can be for wellness, slimming or overall prove to be highly effective for relaxation, which in turn helps in the anti-aging philosophy. A good lymphatic drainage massage relaxes and rejuvenates mind and body aiding in eliminations of toxins, resulting in healthy body and skin.

  1. Detox Therapy

Detox therapies are extremely helpful because of the rhythmic strokes that your therapist apply to stimulate your body. Your therapist uses a combination of massage movements including irregular and altering applications of pressure that gently compress and stretch your muscle tissues.

Spa

  1. Traditional Javanese Full Body Massage

Indonesian Javanese massage is a system of massage that uses all parts of the hand, including the knuckles, to knead and massage the muscles. Usually massage oil is used to facilitate the therapy. This massage works on the muscles and nerves to relieve tension, back pain and aid in the healing of fractures. Of all of the Asian massages, this is the most robust, but greatly beneficial in the long run.

It’s finally a Friday. You’ve had a pretty long work week and you need to relax. You’re craving a relaxing massage. You realise you’re constantly looking for massages these days… Well, there’s nothing wrong with making massages a weekly routine. In fact there are tons of benefits to doing so. Read more about the benefits of a weekly massage here.

When you go for a massage, you could pay premium ala-carte rates, or, as with most spas, sign up a package and save some of that hard earned money in the long run. However, how to decide on which spa to have a long term relationship with?

Here are some points that may help you with your decision:

  • A Brand People Know

A spa with good branding initiatives dares to put itself out there for all to see. To create a great brand takes substantial time, effort and investment. Applying to win awards shows the want to be recognised for excellence. Ordinarily, a spa that has taken steps to create a memorable brand is not out for a quick buck. They value their customers and strive to provide top notch services, utilising quality products.

  • How Long Has The Business Been Established For

Let’s face it, businesses succeed and fail all the time. Spas are no exception. However, if a spa has been in business for some time, chances are, they’ve figured out the correct formula to stay in business. This helps us with knowing that they’re not going to wrap up anytime soon.

  • Reliability

In a relationship, being able to rely on one another is important. How to test if a spa is reliable? Speak to their customer service representatives and see if they know information about treatments, prices, available promotions, convenient booking times etc. This gives us an indication of whether we can rely on the spa.

  • Spa Menu

Consumers should be wary of a spa menu that looks like it’s been copied and pasted from other spas. A spa menu provides customers with treatment choices, how the treatment helps and even ingredient information.

Some spas sell premium products. However, do check with counter staff if those are the same products being used during an in-spa treatment and are not instead replaced with cheap alternatives.

  • Reviews

In today’s service-oriented world where incentives are given in exchange for information, why not check out reviews from other customers before you. Granted not every business in perfect. However, if the good reviews far outweigh the bad, then you can be 90% assured you’re making the right choice.
