Getting a massage. How often is often enough?


The Winnipeg Blue Bombers hold their annual golf tournament on a glorious day in late summer - every year! It’s a chance for Bomber players and fans to get together and play a few rounds. A Blue Bomber joins each foursome, so it’s almost a one-on-one opportunity for dedicated followers.

Another important part of this annual day on the greens is the participation of Academy Massage Therapy. “We’re out there to provide on-site massages to everyone who participates,” said Academy Massage owner, Debby MacKenzie. “We bring out our equipment, and our staff ensures that everyone receives a quality therapeutic massage treatment, just as they would at our clinic.”

“It’s a super fun day, and we just love coming out to it,” she added.

After the rounds of golf, the appreciated massages, and the laughter on the course fades away at the end of the day, one might wonder what’s the recommendation on just how often to get a massage.

This is a question which is often posed to Academy Massage staff.

The answer?

“It depends on a number of factors including your physical health and level of stress. However, that being said, there are some guidelines to follow,” explained Debby.

Getting a massage once or twice a year is relaxing and helps calm the nervous system, improves circulation, relieves muscle pain, and helps with pain management. However, even the best massage isn’t a permanent fix.

Here are some aspects to consider when determining how often you should schedule a massage:

- For chronic pain/special situations: we need to discuss your personal circumstances to make an exact determination. To get you feeling better, you might need to come weekly, or even twice a week. Call Academy Massage to discuss the right treatment plan for you.

- Experiencing some muscle tension and stiffness: typically, once every week or two is ideal for keeping your muscle tissue pliable and in good shape. Getting regular massage will loosen your muscles, and relieve tension and stiffness. Setting up a regular schedule of appointments is a good way to ensure that your appointment time, with the massage therapist you prefer, is available for you.



- Feeling good: once a month is the recommended minimum for maintaining the suppleness and pliancy of your muscle tissue. If your start stretching the time period between massages too much, your muscles will revert to their old patterns, especially if you come under stress. Let us help you - continue to feel good!

The key is to listen to your body. If you still aren’t certain, schedule an appointment and when you come in, we can determine the best course to keeping you feeling great!

New words and waters, for a new season

September, is often seen as the month of new beginnings. There’s school starting, courses to sign up for, and the leaves changing colour. For many, the new season also means it’s the time to think things through again, or even consider new directions.


Words to live by


WHO you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.
WHAT lies ahead will always for a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore.
WHEN life pushes you over, you push back harder.
WHERE there are choices to make, make the one you won’t regret.
WHY things happen, will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.
- Unknown

Refreshing water choices provide a lift to your spirit, as well as your body. Keeping hydrated is an important part of staying healthy. Water promotes cardiovascular health, maintains the body temperature, helps muscles and joints work better, and keeps skin supple.

Also remember to drink plenty of water, particularly after your massage! Drinking lots of water at this time will help flush out the toxins released during your massage, and rehydrate your muscles.

Here’s two simple and tasty recipes that promote hydration. Both recipes focus on berries, which thankfully are plentiful in the stores, and often on still on sale.

Very Berry Water

Ingredients:
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup black berries
water

Instructions:
add all the ingredients to a pitcher
stir
chill in the fridge 4 to 6 hours to infuse the flavours

Enjoy!


Kiwi Raspberry Rave

Ingredients:
2 kiwis
1 cup raspberries
water

Instructions:
peel off the kiwi skin
cut the kiwis into slices
add all the ingredients to a pitcher
stir
chill in the fridge 4 to 6 hours to infuse the flavours

Aaahh!
