Summer Special 90 Min Massage & Spa treatment

While we all love summer, sometimes the endless days of trudging through the city and sweating it out in the dry mountain trails of Utah can leave us begging for a cool escape. A weekend away might be calling your name, but then, of course, there’s the traffic and rush which can make a relaxing few days out of town seem more like a bother than a blessing. So in the spirit of relaxation, we decided to create the perfect staycation to help our fellow Utahans escape the heat and enjoy a little “me time” without all the travel worries. This summer we offer a Special 90 Minute Massage & Spa treatment to help you unwind and look like you’ve just come back from an exotic holiday.

Speaking of dryness, if your skin is feeling tight and flaky from head to toe, Our Cooling Summer 90 Minute Massage will most certainly put you back on course. This treatment begins on a warm massage table where an aromatherapy scrub of your choice is applied. For summertime, we recommend peppermint which cools the skin and smells absolutely divine. The scrub goes to work removing toxins and dead cells while encouraging circulation and filling the body with a blast of energy! Once the scrub is rinsed away, in our private, in-room shower, it’s time to indulge in a truly cooling massage using aromatic oils to hydrate the skin and relax tense muscles.

At Zen Massage in Salt Lake City, UT, we’re celebrating the Summer of Self-Love and we want to help you make regular wellness a priority. Check out our amazing summer specials and discounts and make today the day that you put YOU first with a rejuvenating trip to Zen Massage. We will see you soon!

Summer Special 90 Minute Massage & Spa treatment.

Ease Anxiety with Massage Therapy

Complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) are unconventional types of products and practices that are being used to treat a variety of medical and mental health conditions.

Over the past several years, CAM practices have grown in popularity and are often used in combination with more traditional medical practices. Some common CAM practices include acupuncture, yoga, and aromatherapy.

Massage therapy is a type of CAM practice that is often used to treat muscle pain, injury, and stiffness. Massage therapy has more recently been used for the treatment of mental and emotional problems, including stress, anxiety, and even depression. Also considered a relaxation technique, massage therapy may be able to help reduce tension and elicit feelings of calm and deep relaxation.

Additionally, massage may be able to curb feelings of fear and anxiety, plus assist in managing other panic disorder symptoms.

Massage Therapy Can Help Ease Anxiety and Panic Disorder Symptoms

Massage therapy can help the body relax, which in turn can help one let go of anxious and fearful thoughts. Massage can relieve muscle pain and tension, improve circulation, and increase flexibility. As a relaxation technique, massage therapy can work to manage the fight-or-flight response, or stress reaction, that is typically overactive among people with anxiety disorders.

The fight-or-flight reaction is responsible for causing fearful thoughts and reactions that often far outweigh any actual threat in the environment. For example, people with agoraphobia often fear having a panic attack in a large crowd or confined areas where it would feel embarrassing or difficult to escape.

The fight-or-flight reaction typically leads to uncomfortable physical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, accelerated heart rate, excessive sweating, and chest pain. Massage therapy can have an opposing effect on the body by eliciting the relaxation response, reducing tension, lowering heart rate, and generally making a person feel calmer.

Physical Benefits of Massage

  • Less muscle pain and tension
  • Improved circulation and flexibility
  • Lower heart rate

Mental Benefits of Massage

  • Less anxious thoughts
  • Tamed fight-or-flight response
  • Lower tension and more feelings of calm

Getting Started with Massage Therapy

When meeting with your massage therapist for the first time, make sure to discuss your medical history, including your panic and anxiety symptoms.

It is important to schedule these services with a licensed or certified massage therapist. This ensures that you will get treatment from a qualified practitioner who has followed the standards and requirements for their state licensure.

Let the massage therapist know if you have any areas of discomfort throughout your body. Also discuss what you hope to get out of the massage, such as muscle or stress relief. Many people experience some soreness throughout their body the first few days following a massage. However, you should never feel pain or discomfort during or after a massage. Massage is also contraindicated for certain medical conditions. Always consult your doctor before getting a massage if you are unsure if it’s right for you.

Studies have supported the safety and effectiveness of utilizing massage therapy for stress, anxiety, and depression—but if you are experiencing panic attacks and other symptoms of panic disorder, talk to your doctor before trying this and other CAM practices.

Ask your doctor how Massage therapy could be incorporated into your standard treatment plan to assist you in coping with panic disorder.

Massage Therapy the “art of rubbing”

Massage therapy or the “art of rubbing” has been in practice for a very long time across the globe.

Today, massages aren’t only available in luxurious spas or massage parlors. Their popularity has made them available in business districts, hospitals, clinics, fitness centers, gyms and more.

Massage has ancient historical significance. In ancient Japanese, Chinese, Thai dynasties, these alternative therapies were used as effective treatment methods for musculoskeletal problems. Historical evidence proves that the “art of rubbing” has been and is being practiced across the globe. In the 1850s, during European renaissance, these techniques started adapting European styles and techniques.

Today, there are many different types of massage and spa therapies practiced by massage experts. In some countries, these therapies are included in the alternative medicine curriculum. However, the effectiveness of these treatment methods haven’t been proved by any scientific research, the patient’s reaction to the method has made the approach extremely popular.

Most popular styles of massage therapy

Massage refers to a method of patting, flattening and manipulating the skin, muscular tissues, ligaments, tendons, and other supporting structures. The basic objective of massage is to relax the muscles and reduce stress levels.

Therapists use their hands, fingers, elbows, forearms, and feet for light stroking or deep pressure techniques.

Some popular techniques are:

* Swedish Massage: it is the commonest genre; features tapping or kneading strokes. The strokes are mostly soft, long, rhythmic and light in nature.

* Sports massage: The technique focuses on a specific group of muscles used in different sports. They are designed for preventing injuries and strengthening the musculoskeletal structures.

* Deep tissue massage: The technique is also termed as pain reliever massage. This method is designed for pain anywhere in the superficial skin, tissue or muscular layer.

* Thai massage: It’s certainly one of the most popular therapies today. In this technique, the therapist uses his/her body to change the posture of the recipient and mobilize the joints to better extents. The therapy is also used for compressing the muscles and applying acupressure.

* Shiatsu Massage: This Japanese massage therapy involves applying mixed, rhythmic pressure on some specific points of the body. These specific points are termed as acupressure-points.

* Others: apart from the abovementioned techniques, there are numerous other therapies. Some popular therapies are Hot Stone Massage, Reflexology, Pregnancy Massage, Chair Massage, Trigger point massage, etc.

Deep-tissue Massage Healthy Lifestyle

Deep-tissue massage has been found to reduce blood pressure and heart rate, according to MassageMag.com

Massages are still looked at as an indulgence by many people who aren’t aware of the many benefits massages offer to a healthy daily lifestyle.

Having massages regularly has been proven to do more than help lower blood pressure. It can reduce the risk of injury, reduce stress levels, improve concentration and quality of sleep. Massage also helps increase and improve circulation. 

Do you sit at a desk all day?

Massage therapy has been proven to help postural stress. Massages help to counteract the imbalance caused by sitting for long periods of time.

Massage therapy has also been proven to help with those suffering from anxiety and depression. Massage increases the level of serotonin in the brain, which aids in preventing and lessening depression.

Routine massage therapy has amazing benefits for your everyday health.

Live a healthy life with Massage.

Sports Massage in Salt Lake City

Sports Massage in Salt Lake City

Today’s athletes expect the most out of their bodies to perform at maximum efficiency. This can cause serious stress to be put on the body which in turn can cause muscle fatigue and even serious injury. Sports massage therapy is specialized massage therapy that identifies the muscle group in need of repair and works to minimize the stress put on the body by aggressive training. At Zen Massage, we help athletes maintain peak efficiency and recovery with targeted sports massage therapy at our Salt Lake City massage studio.

Sports Massage Therapy for the pros or the weekend warrior

You don’t have to play for the Utah Jazz to receive sports massage therapy in Salt Lake City. At ZEN Massage, our massage therapists can help everyone, including amateur athletes, weekend warriors, and daily joggers.

Reduce sports injuries and get back in the game faster

Frequent injuries and repeated motions can cause chronic pain and restrict your range of motion. If your body isn’t prepared to perform at its peak, you can be sure that you won’t reach the level of performance you desire. Our sports massage methods put emphasis on preventing injury and healing the stressed muscles and tendons by stimulating blood circulation in the affected area. At ZEN Massage, our sports massage therapy addresses the areas of motion which you use frequently to promote faster recovery and flexibility.

Perform at your best

If you are expecting to compete in an event, a preventative, stimulating massage will direct the blood flow to the areas of the body that are going to be used. This ensures that your blood is pumping, your muscles are ready, and you have a full range of motion to compete at your best.

After the big game or an especially grueling workout, there is nothing better for your muscles than a therapeutic sports massage. When you’re working at your best, your muscles are taking the beating of a lifetime. To prevent injury and promote muscle recovery, a post-event sports massage will repair muscles and normalize the body’s tissues.

Rehab from sports injuries

One of the most popular uses for sports massage is for the rehabilitation of a previous injury. Nothing slows you down like chronic pain from an old injury. Our massage therapists work on the injury location as well as on the muscle groups associated with the injury that may be causing additional pain from over-compensation due to the injury.

The massage therapists at ZEN Massage are ready to get you back in playing form. Contact us about our Sports Massage Therapy in Salt Lake City today!
