Why Massage is the Perfect Self Care Treat

When we think of self-care, we might think of facials, soaks in bathtubs, or a good massage. Often, we’ll hear people say, ‘self-care is not just getting a massage!’ That’s why we’re sharing our top reasons for what a good massage has to offer in terms of self-care.

They are good for you, and they feel good.

The simple truth is that massages are good for you. Massage improves circulation, helps to relieve muscle tension, increase flexibility and can benefit the immune system and reproductive system. In addition, massages are a great way to de-stress. And who can say no to that?

They are affordable.

Massage therapy is affordable, depending on where you go. A massage at Peace in a Pod starts from $109 for a 60 minute, full-body massage. When you consider what you pay for a haircut, food, or dinner, a massage is of great value.

They are convenient.

If you are busy, you can still find time for a massage. Whether you find a few minutes during your lunch break or you carve out an hour before bed, you can make it a priority.

They help you to take care of your body.

As the caretakers of the most important part of our body, our brain, we treat it very well. It’s time to treat our bodies a little bit better. Looking after your body is just as important as your mind and spirit.

They offer quick pain relief.

Whether you are having pain in a specific area or you are experiencing generalized, chronic pain, self-care can be the perfect solution. Depending on the severity and the area, a massage can be a great way to get immediate relief from pain.

They can help you to relax and unwind.

If you love to relax with a glass of wine or a cup of tea, a massage is a great alternative to help you unwind. A massage also helps you to disconnect from your everyday worries and to focus on yourself.

They benefit your mind, body and spirit.

Your spirit is just as important as your mind and your body. When you are able to care for all of your mind, body, and spirit, you feel happier and more fulfilled.

They can promote sleep.

If you have trouble sleeping, a massage can be a great way to help you. A massage is a form of sensory stimulation and can help to reduce stress, which can help you to fall asleep more easily.

They can help you to manage stress.

Stress is a normal part of daily life, but when it becomes too much, it can be harmful to your health. Managing stress is critical for your physical and mental health, and a massage can help you to do that.


Massage is a wonderful way to look after your health, your body and your spirit. The therapeutic benefits of massage are numerous, and they are critically important. No matter what level of massage you are looking to receive, you can find a good massage therapist who can help you to reach your health and wellness goals.
