Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? The power of massage

Did you know that massage therapy can still be possible during and after cancer treatment? Caroline Warren from the Touch Therapy Centre in Cork is back with us today with 3 things a massage can help you with right now.

We know a massage will make us move better and feel happier. It is great preventive care and it can have some instantly-gratifying results. That is why we should do our best to incorporate regular massage into our weekly/monthly routines, especially with the stresses and strains of our modern world. Check out these 3 things massage can help you with right now…

Skincare issues

If your skin is very dry, itchy or sore, a gentle massage will calm and hydrate your skin in one simple session. At The Touch Therapy Centre we only use 100% natural oils and lotions to help nourish your skin and reduce inflammation.

Back pain

A major research study was published in 2011 showing that massage therapy was better than drugs and conventional care for general lower back pain. Better than drugs. Wow, I just had to say that twice. Just about everyone will experience back pain at some point in their life. If it happens to you, don’t suffer. Book a massage at the Touch Therapy Centre and get back to action.

Low mood

Have you ever been so cranky you got on your own nerves and probably everyone else’s around you? Yeah, me too. It isn’t fun and it ain’t pretty. When you feel yourself biting everyone’s head off when they ask you a question, it might be time for some self-care. Massage is great for stress relief. You get to shut off all the things that buzz and ping and aggravate you. Comforting music, silence, warmth and a soothing massage and suddenly all the cranky disappears. This is dual purpose. You’ll feel better and all the people around you will be happier that you’re back to your sunny, sparkly self.
