Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 31, 2009
Massage Envy, the nation’s largest massage therapy provider, recommends ringing in a healthy new year in 2010 by incorporating massage therapy into your wellness program. Along with resolving to eat healthier, take vitamins and exercise more frequently, incorporating massage therapy into your wellness program can help relieve stress and tension, as well as address chronic aches and pains.
“Given today’s stressful environment, more Americans are turning to therapeutic massage for good health maintenance and relief from the aches, pains and stress of everyday life,” said CG Funk, vice president of industry relations and product development at Massage Envy. “With a customized massage session, therapists can focus on specific needs, like incorporating Swedish massage techniques for stress relief or deep tissue therapy to relieve muscle pain and tension.”
Research indicates that massage therapy can boost immunity and reduce hypertension. Also, a study conducted by the Touch Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine showed that ongoing massage could lower anxiety, reduce pain, and improve grip strength for those that suffer from arthritis.
Look forward to 2010 as the healthiest year ever by including customized massage therapy in your wellness plan. Visit the Massage Envy website and find a location near you to start enjoying the benefits of massage today.
