Winter Lehi Massage Benefits: Circulation, Immunity, Joints

While massage therapy is a great resource for many people throughout a given year, there are certain seasons or times of the year where it's especially beneficial for some. Winter is a common example here among many people - why might this season bring some even greater benefits alongside massage therapy than you might find during other times of the year? 

At Body Balance Massage and Float, we're happy to offer a wide range of the very best massage therapy programs in Lehi and nearby areas, including options like Swedish massage, trigger point therapy and numerous others. What are some of the specific ways massage therapy benefits people during the coldest parts of the Utah calendar? This two-part blog series will go over several.

Improved Circulation

One of the simplest benefits of massage therapy, and which is especially noticeable during winter when it's easy for our hands or feet to get cold due to our body's natural circulation processes, is improved circulation. Massage helps to break up the tension in our muscles and stimulate blood flow throughout the body, allowing us to stay warmer during cold weather and better able to enjoy outdoor activities.

It does this primarily by improving the circulation of both our lymphatic and cardiovascular systems. The lymphatic system helps to remove toxins from our body, while the cardiovascular system delivers oxygenated blood throughout our tissues. Improved circulation in winter months not only helps to keep us warmer, but also can alleviate some of the discomfort associated with cold-weather conditions like arthritis or joint pain.

Immune System Boost

Down related lines, massage therapy can also do wonders for the body's immune system in winter months. While it’s always important to take proper care of our health year-round, massage can help jumpstart that process during colder months when we're more likely to be affected by viruses.

Massage helps to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which are responsible for introducing antibodies and other cells that fight off infection. It does this by targeting the lymphatic system, promoting healthy circulation of fluids, which helps reduce inflammation in our bodies as well.

Joint Stiffness Issues

Some people typically experience more joint stiffness in winter months than during other seasons. Though this can be due to a variety of factors, massage therapy helps address some of those issues by increasing flexibility, mobility and range of motion.

The heat provided by massage, along with the specific techniques used in many programs, can help reduce pain and inflammation. Massage also helps to loosen the muscles around our joints, lessening the feeling of tightness or stiffness that can come with cold weather.

Overall, massage therapy can be especially beneficial during winter months in Lehi and nearby areas. To learn more about the options available here at Body Balance Massage and Float, we welcome you to reach out to us today!
