We offer 30-minute, 45-minute and 60-minute hot stone massages as well as short head massages, which can be great for relaxing your mind and getting rid of that nagging headache. Plus, you can add on other spa services to your massage if you would like a half or full day of relaxation.
A massage truly can relax you. It calms your mind, decreases stress and chips away at any anxiety you might be feeling. In fact, a massage can actually decrease cortisol levels in your body. Cortisol is that hormone known for increasing the feeling of stress and nervousness and is also responsible for many inflammatory responses in your body, which can lead to chronic disease. After your massage, your cortisol levels will be decreased, and you will feel much better able to deal with whatever is going on in your life.
However, massages can relax much more than just your mind. They are also known muscles soothers for sore or tight muscles. A gentle massage is the perfect option for tight muscles because this style of massage works away knots, loosens tight muscles and even increases flexibility. In fact, massage can actually help you improve your posture as key muscles along your neck and back are loosened and allowed to return to their healthy positions.
Massage has also had many proven physical effects as shown through multiple research studies. For example, it can decrease pain in many individuals, including those with back and neck pain. However, they can also decrease post-surgical pain and pain associated with all types of arthritis, fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome. Massage can improve many types of headache symptoms, including tension headaches, stress headaches and migraines. Some initial studies have even shown that it can improve your body’s immune system, helping you to fight off infections better.
Another physical benefit that you can get from regular massage is improved circulation. This happens first at the surface of the skin where the masseuse is constantly rubbing. You may feel as if your skin is glowing by the time you leave. Improved circulation also occurs far beneath the surface of your skin. Your muscles will receive improved blood flow, which brings more nutrients to the muscle cells, decreasing soreness and increasing growth and strength. This also improves the circulation of lymphatic fluid through the lymphatic system, which can improve immunity and help your body get rid of harmful waste products.
Whether or not you are planning on coming to Vimi Laser and Skincare Clinic for all of these health benefits, we know that you will love the relaxation that you can gain with one of our short or long massages. Call us today to schedule your appointment in Scarborough.
