Massage therapy is beneficial to your health and well-being year-round, but can be especially useful during the tough winter months. Here are some benefits of massage during winter months that you can enjoy.
Below are 4 benefits of massage during the winter months:
The skin on your hands and feet should be soft and tender, but after frequent hand washing during the winter flu season and boot wearing during snow season, your skin can be left feeling rough, dry and brittle. To transform your hands and feet from unfavorable winter conditions, add moisturizing cream or warm massage oil to your hand and foot massages. Also, apply a moisturizing cream to your feet and hands before bed and cover them with socks and gloves while you sleep to allow your skin to absorb and soak in the much needed moisture.

Massage therapy increases circulation to muscles, joints, and organs, warming up the body. Cold weather can bring on many discomforts, aches, pains and arthritis. Regular massage enhances blood flow, naturally lowering blood pressure and improving body function. Source: KundaliniHouse
Immune System Booster
This time of year is all about picking up coughs and colds, massage is proven to help boost the immune system. Massage therapy increases the lymph flow which is packed with white blood cells, which then go off and fight infections around the body, therefore boosting our immune system and helping us to fight infections better.

Massage creates positive changes in the endocrine system where hormones are formed. Hormones affect mood, desire, depression, alertness, sleep, hunger, sense of touch and sex drive; the balance of which are very important for the well-being. After receiving bodywork, cortisol levels are decreased (the nasty hormone responsible for stress!), and oxytocin levels are raised (the happy, contentment hormone). What better way to cheer yourself up than with a massage! Source: PhilaMassages
