February 18, 2016

In the modern hustle and bustle of American urban life, a huge number of individuals are searching for quick fixes and wonder drugs to help them overcome a lot of health problems. But, as we have come to experience over and aver again, taking shortcuts often lead to nowhere. While the demand for massage has been growing steadily throughout the years all over the United States, New York City has become a hot bed of activity. This city attracts millions of tourists every year with landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. Tourists often go for a round of massage to pamper themselves on vacation. But massage therapy has very significant benefits to health which makes it more important than just a way to relax.

For those who have made New York City their home, they know how crazy life can be here. Whether you’re shopping at Macy’s or taking the subway train to any of the city boroughs to buy some groceries, people seem to be always in a rush. The stress and heat of our many congested streets can leave anyone exhausted, anxious, and with frayed nerves. Here at Living Well Spa of Saratoga Springs, we offer massage therapy to help you get your life back into balance and prepare yourself for the everyday challenges of urban life.

Massage therapy as most everyone know, can ameliorate body pain and loosen tight muscles, but its benefits extend much farther than that. This type of bodywork is one of the best ways of removing anxiety and stress in your mind and body, which affects your health in a huge way. Lowering the effects of withdrawal and depression, encouraging tissue regeneration, strengthening the immune system, and enhancing range of motion are some of this therapy’s other valuable benefits. Massage therapy has certain special techniques and modalities that can be useful for seniors suffering from arthritis and even for pregnant women.

We at Living Well Spa of Saratoga Springs have determined, from our own experience, that a number of important points should be considered to help with various types of ailments. Old people especially those with arthritis, can find temporal alleviation by icing the sore areas and then getting massage. Our massage therapy services will leave our clients pain-free for several days to a week after being given massage. A lot of our clients are in a state of constant pain, therefore the massage services we offer that help them get rid of their pain is incredibly invaluable to them.

For individuals with the flu or common cold, massage can be an effective healer for them. The moment when a person has just passed the apex of his/her sickness is the best time for him/her to get a massage. The massage helps stimulate the flow of blood and the lymph system. To know how beneficial massage therapy can be, a one hour massage equates to a whole day (24 hours) of normal flow of lymph fluid throughout the body.

People with high blood pressure (hypertension) can also find massage therapy helpful. It’s a wonderful way to relax the body, which in turn can lower blood pressure and calm the mind. Blood pressure can dramatically rise due to anxiety and stress. Massage is one of the best ways to alleviate tension making one feel soothed and relaxed.

These days, a lot of Americans need to work two, three, or even four jobs just to get by. Some have jobs that entail remaining in one position for a long time or in constant holding patterns which negatively affects the muscles. Most of these hard working people suffer from extreme stress which manifest in tight muscles in the shoulders and neck. Furthermore, this tension can lead to knots and trigger points that can result in severe headaches and migraines. Though most of them don’t have the time, they really need to give time to massage treatment which can prove to be the most important way to preserve their emotional and physical health.

Over the years, we have gotten to know and understand the importance and benefits of massage therapy. This treatment still causes surprises as we get to know more and more about it through endless scientific studies and anecdotal evidences.
