Winter Massage Benefits: Skin, Sleep, Metabolism

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the most notable benefits of massage therapy that are especially beneficial during the winter. While many people receive benefits from different massage techniques throughout the year, some find that it's especially helpful during the coldest parts of the year when certain kinds of pain are at their most likely. 

At Body Balance Massage and Float, we're here to offer a wide range of massage therapy techniques and services, from deep tissue full body massage to trigger point therapy, bamboo massage and many others. Here are some of the other key ways massage often benefits many people during the winter season.

Improved Skin Health

Some people don't think enough about the health of their skin. During winter months, when temperatures drop and humidity decreases, the skin often becomes especially dry. Massage can help to moisturize the skin by improving circulation, which helps bring essential oils and other moisture-rich substances to the affected area. 

This can help improve skin health in many areas, including reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles, improving skin tone and helping to reduce acne.

Improved Sleep Quality

As the days get shorter, it can be harder for many of us to keep regular sleep patterns during the winter months. Massage therapy has been shown to have a positive effect on sleep quality, making it easier to stay in a healthy sleeping rhythm even when temperatures start dropping. 

Massage helps relax tense muscles, increases circulation and reduces stress levels – all of which can help you to drift off into a peaceful slumber more easily. 

Keeping the "Winter Blues" Away

Another major benefit of massage therapy is that it helps to keep stress levels at bay, which in turn can help to fight against symptoms of depression. Massage improves the circulation of serotonin and dopamine – two hormones known for helping people feel happier and better overall. 

By fighting against low moods in this way, massage can be a powerful tool to combat the winter blues that many of us experience during colder months. 

Boosting Metabolism

Many of us find we get a bit heavier during the colder months of the year, as comfort eating becomes more common and physical activity levels drop. Massage can help to boost metabolism by stimulating organs like the liver and kidneys and improving circulation, which all contribute to a healthier metabolic rate. 

By increasing this rate it becomes easier for those extra winter calories to be burned off faster – so you can stay at a healthier weight all year round. 

Whether you're looking to improve sleep quality or boost your metabolism, massage therapy can be an excellent way to get through the winter months. With many of its benefits tailored towards making life easier during colder weather, it's no wonder massage is such an essential part of many people's wintertime routine.
