Having a massage under normal circumstances is essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle; but, during stressful times a massage can be necessary for survival. Perhaps you’re even feeling the added stress of not having access to a massage clinic. You’re not alone! That’s precisely why massage therapy at home has become the new normal.
Managing the stress that comes from work, home and these unprecedented times often reveals itself through your health. Muscle pain and headaches are just some of the many ways stress can affect your body. Massage therapy is an effective and proven way to provide relief of aches and tension.
Back, foot and neck pain are typical when working at home without the right ergonomic set up. Regular massage therapy can relieve muscle tension and improve circulation.
Massage therapy can be a part of a healthy strategy to maintain personal mental health. It promotes relaxation so you can be more engaged with family and more productive at work. Improvements to concentration, sleep and mood all lead to a stronger immune system.
Increase your serotonin, affectionately known as the happy hormone, through regular massage. When serotonin is increased, the stress induced hormone cortisol is reduced which helps to regulate anxiety among many other benefits.
Bring the benefits home
The benefits remain the same even if a Registered Massage Therapist comes to you. A mobile massage enables you to receive hands on manual therapy that is not possible through a virtual appointment. Receiving treatments at home is not only safe, but it’s just as convenient as the other essentials you receive at home. If you have to spend most of your time indoors, it makes sense to also include regular health care services at home. And, most private health insurance companies cover treatments by a Registered Massage Therapist, so you are not limited to a specific clinic location. In fact, your risk of exposure to infections is actually lower when your therapist comes to your home.
Explore your options
Your massage can be customized to your current challenges and health goals. Your Massage Therapist will always thoroughly explain your options and discuss which one is right for you.
The deep tissue massage relieves muscular tension, or choose the classic swedish massage with varying levels of pressure. If you’re an athlete or weekend warrior you’ll benefit from the specific techniques of a sports massage. Or, if you’re pregnant you will definitely appreciate the gentle yet effective prenatal massage. Take some time to learn more about the versatility and benefits of massage therapy to discover which one is best for your needs.
Booking a mobile massage
So many events and services have become virtual, but massage therapy can actually take place in the safety and security of your home. Hands on treatment gives you an opportunity to experience the full benefits of massage therapy at home in a safe and convenient way.
At HealthCasa, safety continues to be a priority and additional precautions have been implemented. Prior to your mobile massage there is a thorough pre-screening process for both you and the practitioner. During your appointment, the practitioner will be wearing the appropriate PPE and using Health Canada approved products while practicing the wipe twice method. Contactless payment and a digital copy of your receipt will be made available for insurance purposes.
