There is no question that having a regular massage is lovely. It’s good for your body and your mind and it’s something to really look forward to. But there is increasing evidence that suggests that it can actually have a significant and measurable impact on your immune system. With everything going on at the moment, making sure your body is fighting fit feels even more important than usual, so we wanted to explore how massage could be a critical part of staying fit and healthy.
We’ve all heard the old adage, “everything will feel better in the morning” at some point in our lives. And it’s true, things often do feel better after a good nights’ sleep. But have you ever stopped to wonder why?
It’s far more than just being rested, and better able to tackle what life has to throw at us.
As little as one night of bad sleep can set us up for a bad day ahead. If our sleep is chronically disturbed due to stress, insomnia or a teething baby, our lives can be seriously affected.
A lack of sleep affects our physical, mental, reproductive and brain health. It also affects our ability to learn and progress at school and work, and our likelihood of becoming obese, being in an accident and developing life-changing diseases such as heart disease and certain cancers.
