Massage in Sarasota

Stress relief — A massage helps your body to rapidly produce more endorphins – best known to lower stress, reduce anxiety, and boost self-esteem. Massage also triggers the release of serotonin and dopamine – creating positive feelings of happiness and joy. If you live a high-stress and busy life – you need to get a massage more often.

Better sleep — People who have trouble sleeping and relaxing can greatly benefit from a massage. Research shows a massage can help reset the body and brain to experience more delta brain waves, or short-wave sleep (SWS). Experts believe these are critical for restorative sleep, allowing the body to recover and grow. Delta waves usually occur only during a deep and restful sleep.

Immune system benefits — Having regularly scheduled massages can increase the number of T-cells and white blood cells in your body – both used to fight off disease and infection. Your immune system will become strong and healthy after a massage at Colibri Day Spa.

Headaches and migraines — Massages help to reduce headaches and migraines for sufferers during an event. They work proactively to diminish future episodes. Massage improves blood circulation by opening the blood vessels in the brain that have shrunk during a migraine episode.

Flexibility — Massages are well known as the best way to reduce muscle tension and improve flexibility. They help to prevent the likelihood of muscle damage or injuries when you are physically active.

Reduce pain — One of the best rewards of a great massage is pain reduction. Anyone who has experienced a quality massage can attest to the rapid relief of muscle soreness and pain. Increased endorphins also help to alleviate discomfort as an added benefit.

Reduce blood pressure and improve circulation — Regular massages can lower chronic high blood pressure and help improve blood circulation. Getting a massage will improve your well-being, and greatly enhance the quality of your life.
