Weekly tips to bring island-inspired wellness into your everyday life from the wellness and spa team at Rosalie Bay Resort, Dominica. Post written by Spa and Wellness Coordinator Laura Lund.
Many of us book a massage to relax and unwind from stress. Whether you prefer a Swedish, deep tissue, or hot stone massage, you’re likely to walk away with more than a sense of relief.
The benefits of massage are numerous. The practice involves the manipulation of the skin through touch. Variations in touch, such as movement and pressure, can positively impact your health. Massages:
- boost the immune system,
- improve sleep,
- increase airflow in asthmatics,
- decrease stress, anxiety, depression and pain, and
- have a positive effect on brain waves, breathing, circulation and heart rate.
Try a therapeutic massage with the therapists at our spa and experience the benefits for yourself.
