Summer Love from a Massage
Summertime is the perfect time and opportunity to enjoy a massage. You may not realize it, but your body could need that TLC more than ever.
Why a Summer Massage
The cold months are long gone, and you have been filling your summer with activities. Maybe you have a knack for gardening, boating sports, hiking, swimming, or anything else that includes lots of movement. Your winter activities may have been a lot less mobile, so you’re muscles could be suffering from a change of pace. It’s common to feel more tired and sore during the summer—you are a lot more involved! When we use our muscles in work or exercise, lactic acid builds up (which is a normal thing). When we don’t take care of this, we may experience pain and lessened mobility. This eventually turns into “knots” which are also painful. This is exactly why you need to make sure you are taking care of your body. We always hear about putting on sunscreen, drinking lots of water, etc. during the summer. Those things are still important, but we need to remember our entire bodies!
Benefits of a Summer Massage
Now that we have established the importance of a massage in the summer, let’s discuss the benefits. First of all, that buildup of lactic acid needs to be taken care of. When you’re body is full of knots, you don’t feel strong enough for anything. No one likes being in pain or feeling sluggish. Get that muscle fiber buildup worked on, and you will begin feeling like a new person. It won’t be as painful to bend over for hours to work on your garden or to backpack for days in the mountains.
Summer End with a Massage
Now that the summer is coming to a close, a massage will feel great. It will ready you for the coming fall and winter. You won’t have those pained muscles, but rather a happy body thanking you for taking the time for a summer massage in Pleasant Grove.
