Massage in Centerville
Massage is one of the most basic forms of self-care and provides a multitude of benefits. That’s why we partner with Marlene Powell of Massage Remedies, who offers a variety of massages right here in our yoga studio in Centerville, Ohio. Massage can be the perfect complement to any yoga practice because they both work to increase flexibility, relax the body, relieve stress, detoxify and oxygenate the body by increasing blood flow, and clear the mind.
Yoga + massage
We recommend receiving regular massages to reduce stress, alleviate tension, and help your muscles recover from daily activity. When you pair regular massages with your yoga practice, you’ll experience a noticeable difference in your yoga asana practice. Consider that massage can help increase blood flow to your muscles, which can help improve flow and ease of movement in your yoga practice. You might find yourself able to hold your poses for longer and stretch farther as your muscles learn to strengthen in a lengthened state. Finally, you might be able to stay more present and clear your mind more efficiently in your yoga session when paired with other stress reducing modalities such as massage.
When scheduling a massage, consider your day’s agenda. If you have a stressful event or plan to attend a more rigorous yoga class, such as Power, be sure to schedule your massage after these events. More intense massages require rest, which means diving into a brain powered or physical activity may be jarring to your system. Simply ask your massage therapist, and she would be happy to guide you.
