A massage not only helps with overall health benefits but is also a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Our customers have always had a rejuvenating experience at Tattva spa and have used words like ‘great service’ and ‘amazing experience’. Some of the customers have appreciated the guidance given by the staff in choosing the right therapy.
The experience is as important as the massage or the therapy itself. We are so busy hustling that we are stressed all the time and the stress accumulates in the lymph nodes and blocks the energy meridians which causes aches and pains. It is unfair how we have started to accept stress as a part of our daily lives. Stress has become an important contributing factor to several lifestyle problems including accelerated aging, obesity, heart disease, headaches, and migraines. Stress-related lifestyle problems can be solved with consistent massage therapies.
Our founders are on a mission to help Indians adopt massages & wellness as a priority. We believe that professional massage therapy can do wonders. Here are a few of the top reasons to book a massage session by taking out time from your busy schedules now:
Massage for relaxation
Often since our stress is reflected in tensed muscles and knots in the body, a massage can help relax those stressed-out muscles and open up the knots and help flush out stress-related hormones from the body and improve mood. Knots in the muscles are extremely tensed sections of muscles in the body and can be triggered from anywhere in the body due to stress or a muscle being overworked.
Massage for improved sleep
Remember the moments when a loved one would give you a champi and you would sleep like a baby after it? Massages help with the production of serotonin in the body which further helps with the production of the sleep hormone melatonin in the body. A massage spa treatment is so relaxing that many people fall asleep while receiving a massage. The healers at Tattva Spa are very well-trained and you can completely trust them. So take that much-needed siesta during the massage.
Massage for Arthritis
A little-known fact about massage therapies is that it helps alleviate the symptoms of arthritis. Symptoms of Arthritis include swelling, pain, and inflammation. A massage can help elevate these symptoms by soothing inflammation, improving circulation, and releasing muscle tension. Do remember to check with your ortho if your existing condition allows for regular massage therapy.
Some massages we would suggest to help manage the symptoms of arthritis are a Swedish massage and a deep tissue massage. Swedish massage and deep tissue massage have similar benefits but they vary in the intensity of the pressure applied during the massage. The Swedish massage techniques primarily involve working with the palms and the fingertips. In a traditional deep tissue massage, the healer also uses her forearms and elbows to apply enough pressure to get to the deeper layers of the body.
The pressure applied during a Swedish massage gets balanced out by the release of muscle tension and the improvement of blood. Both techniques serve the purpose of alleviating pain and inducing relaxation at the end of every massage session.
A few things to keep in mind before a massage
To get the most out of any massage, avoid the sun. A Swedish massage on sunburnt skin is painful and can further irritate the skin. Further, to get the benefit of the oil applied during a massage, do not apply any lotion or oil beforehand. A few more things that you should generally keep in mind when booking your massage appointment are:
- Avoid coffee and a heavy meal before your appointment
- Make sure that you have used the washroom before the start of a massage session.
Time to feel your best by taking out time to focus on your wellness by having a spa day.
