If you’ve visited a Karma Spa before, you’ll know that we take our wellness seriously. As in, we make sure they are seriously relaxing, rejuvenating and deep-down healing. Here’s why it’s worth making this age-old art a part of your routine this year…
1. Reduces blood pressure
It’s not guaranteed but studies have shown regular massages lowers our blood pressure. Not only will you feel good but it’s good for our health and longevity too!
2. Improves the efficiency of the body’s lymphatic system
Yup, it’s true – a skillful masseuse using the correct techniques can support lymphatic drainage, which moves the toxins out of the lymph system and can reduce soreness/tiredness in the muscles, delayed onset pain.
3. Reduces stress
Ok, no surprise here perhaps – but who doesn’t want a little less stress in their lives. Plus there’s science to it – a good massage can increase the release of endorphins, serotonin and dopamine and reduce the dreaded cortisol stress hormones.
4. Strengthens Facial Muscles
The jury is out on skin improvement – but a good facial massage can strengthen facial muscles and have a positive impact on temporomandibular disorder and the headaches that go with it.
5. Eases neck, shoulder, and lower back pain
One of the best times to treat yourself to a massage is after travel – especially long flights where you are sitting for long hours and the muscles get tight and tired. So on your next Karma holiday, be sure to book yourself in for a treatment the evening or morning after you arrive!
