Massage Strokes Steal the Show in Spring

March 17th, 2014 • Posted by Touch of Light Therapeutic Massage • Permalink

When spring hits, people get the urge to do a bit of deep cleaning and decluttering in their homes. The same should be true for your body. Receiving a massage is the perfect way to slough off old winter skin and reset your body for a new, warmer season. If you haven't had a massage in a while, taking the time to pamper yourself can prepare you for this season of renewal.

Get Rid of Dry Skin

As the temperatures rise above freezing, you'll put away the long-sleeved sweaters and pants and begin to show more skin. Indoor heat, low humidity and cold winter air has likely left your skin dry in spots and, perhaps, a bit lifeless. Start with a full body exfoliation and follow up with a massage with essential oils. The combination of exfoliating dry, dull skin and adding moisture with nourishing oils will leave your skin glowing and ready to show off.

Put Your Best Foot Forward

One of the best traditions of spring is showing off a new pair of strappy sandals, but no one wants to get caught with cracked heels or callouses. Start with a salt foot scrub to smooth skin. Then, invest in a foot massage to make sure your feet are warm weather ready. Follow up with regular deep exfoliation and moisturizing massages to keep feet sandal-ready all spring and summer long.

New Beginnings

Spring is a time of everything beginning again, fresh and new. It is also a good time to try a new type of massage you've never had before. According to WebMD, there are more than 80 different styles of massage therapy. Feel free to ask about what would be best for your body and your needs.

In addition to reviving tired winter skin and preparing yourself for spring clothing, the warmer weather allows you to take advantage of massage services without feeling the chill of winter. Why is spring a good time for a massage? Because massage is beneficial throughout every season and spring is no exception.
