We all find different ways to relax and unwind. Some of us find shopping therapeutic, whilst others like spending time with family and friends. Meanwhile, others prefer spending time alone, and this brings us to the ultra-beneficial properties of getting a massage.
If you’re a massage fan, then you’re definitely not alone. More and more individuals are finding out how essential this form of pampering can be. Not only does it relax your body, it relaxes your mind and spirit as well.
To get a massage, you can go to a spa or health club, or perhaps a shopping centre (yes, they do offer them there nowadays!). But personally, I prefer getting a massage in the comfort of my own abode. That’s why I’ve set aside a special ‘massage’ room in my home, complete with all the amenities you can think of: from the quintessential massage table to aromatherapy candles, fluffy towels, and gurgling electric fountain plugged into one corner.
So if you are fond of getting regular massages, here are a few good reasons why you should also have your own massage room, beginning with your own massage table.
There’s nothing like being in your own domain
Let’s face it: if you get a massage at a spa on a regular basis, you have to go out of your way to drive or commute to the place, go back home after the massage (not a great feeling, especially when you’re relaxed and want nothing more than to go to sleep), and contend with perhaps a queue or noisy or disruptive clients. But if you have your own massage table at home, you can be in total relaxation from the beginning, and only need to plop into bed at the end of the session.
Spread the love to your special someone
With your own massage table at home, you can easily spend more time with your spouse or loved one by giving them a personalised, special massage. You can learn how to give a relaxing massage by checking out instructional videos on the Internet or DVDs, and spread the love. Do it as a special date every week or on various occasions. You’d be amazed at how the intimacy in your relationships will improve on the basis of a few expert touches.
Be healthier in all aspects of your life
We all know that getting a regular massage can give you a feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation that’s hard to compare to any other therapy you might receive. With a massage, your body is utterly calm, and this calmness is transported into your mental and emotional state as well. As a holistic therapy, massage treatments are designed to help you achieve a state of balance and harmony that is usually lacking in this day and age.
Earn points with your massage therapist
If you have a regular massage therapist, they might be happy to know that you already have a massage table. This lessens their effort in coming to your home and giving you a massage on the bed (which is uncomfortable, to say the least). Your therapist may even give you a discount, as they don’t need to bring their own massage couch to your home anymore every time you have a session.
