We have listed hundreds of spas within New Zealand on our website, when we started entering spas we never thought there would be this many. But it shows how popular the spa industry is, and how important New Zealanders feel spas are in their lifestyles. Getting professional beauty expertise, or a massage on a regular basis has all become part of the New Zealanders wellness lifestyle.
For those new to having regular spa visits in their wellness lifestyle may want to have a read of the health benefits. We have listed some below on the benefits of having a massage on a regular basis.
If you had a massage before you will know it is pleasant and relaxing, but what you may not know is that regular massages support your immune system function and decrease stress-related hormones that can lower immunity. If you have a lot of stress having a weekly massage will greatly reduce the feeling of anxiety and feeling overwhelmed.
Massage is also great for pain relief in muscles, massage helps loosen up muscles and increase blood circulation. Sports athletes will be familiar with the sports massage that is deep and focuses on problem areas. People that get stiff joints quickly will find a regular massage means not having to take as much pain medication.
For those that deal with depression may find that a regular massage helps them relax and feel they come out of a massage more focused on positive things in life. Regular massage as well as exercising releases endorphins, the body’s natural feel good chemical.
All in all we think everyone should have regular massages to increase their health and put it up their priority list. After all your health is your wealth!
