Self-care is in Season
Summertime and massage go hand-in-hand in our book. Taking care of ourselves is so important, and massage is one of the most impactful self-care practices you should be enjoying all summer long! We got together with Joshua Willcoxen, Juut Roseville Master Massage Therapist and Stephanie Hansen, Juut Wayzata Master Massage Therapist. Below is a combination of their reasons why Summer is the season for massage.
With Summer comes some of our favorite activities – hiking, biking, boating, evening strolls, everything outside! “Gardening muscles” are totally a thing! Leaning over on one’s knees planting for a few days straight can do a number on one’s back. Traveling is a common activity during the summer months and tends to throw our bodies off too. Whether we’re embarking on a long car ride or sleeping in a bed that isn’t ours, our bodies might require a little more TLC in the Summer. Massage is great for getting us back into ourselves mentally and physically!
And while Summer brings adventure (exciting and wonderful) the excitement of a new season can reduce time to reset and replenish our hard-working bodies. Making time to rest, recover, and nourish our bodies is vital, especially coming out of the year we’ve just had. Massage can offer the perfect combination of rest, replenishment, and deep relaxation.
Not only does massage assist our bodies with muscle soreness, stiffness, and overall mobility, but this practice provides head-to-toe exfoliation to stimulate the lymphatic system, unclog pores, help the body rid itself of toxins, and promote a healthy skin tone.
