We know massage will make us move better and feel happier, but not everyone can make time to schedule regular appointments. Luckily, even a single massage is great preventive care and it can have some instantly-gratifying results. Check out these 3 things massage can help you with right now.


Tension headaches (often called stress headaches) are one of the most common type of headaches among young adults.

Pain or pressure in your forehead or on the top or sides of your head? Could be a tension headache. It’s especially likely if you’ve been hunching over a desk, sitting at a computer, or spending a ton of time in a car.

Massage can help get rid of this kind of headache.  Regular massage may well keep it from coming back. (If you want to geek out about tension headaches and try a few self-massage techniques, check out this article.)

Back Pain

A major research study was published in 2011 showing that massage therapy was better than drugs and usual care for general lower back pain. Better than drugs. I just had to say that twice.

Just about everyone will experience back pain at some point in their life. Even teens and young adults.  If it happens to you, don’t suffer. Schedule a massage and get back into action.


Have you ever been so cranky you got on your own nerves? Yeah, me, too. It isn’t fun. When you feel yourself biting everyone’s head off when they ask you a question, it might be time for some self-care.

Massage is a great stress reliever.. You get to shut off all the things that buzz and chime and aggravate you, and really have some time where you, and your relaxation and self-care are the main focus.  Music, silence, warmth, massage. All the cranky dissolves away.

You’ll feel better and all the people around you will be happier that you’re back to your sunny self.

Got a headache, low back pain, or a case of the grumpies? Get a massage scheduled and we’ll handle that fast.
