If you want to take a holistic approach to beauty, it can be great to get regular body massages. Body massage has a wonderful effect on overall health, beauty and wellbeing, including reducing inflammation and bloating, reducing stress and improving circulation. 

Massage for circulation

Massage is a great way to improve circulation. Improved circulation can help skin to appear clearer and aid healing by allowing the blood flow to get to the surface of the skin and stimulate collagen production. This can make skin appear plumper, healthier and have improved healing from blemishes. This is a great way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This involves small movements to stimulate blood flows to areas that could benefit from extra blood flow, such as the face or decolletage. 

Reduced inflammation and bloating

Stress can increase inflammation in the body. One of the common signs of this is bloating, including keeping extra fluid under the eyes (as eye bags), extra fluid around the abdomen and waistline and extra fluid at the jawline. Massage can help the body to drain this extra fluid through the natural paths, which can be particularly useful if the user has had a poor diet or poor sleep and, as a result, can make users appear more beautiful. Massage to reduce bloating often involves long strokes to direct extra fluid to lymphatic hotspots like the armpits, which adds vitality to the face.  

Reduced stress

Feelings of tension and stress can also make people feel and look older. Massage can help people to feel more relaxed and create an overall more relaxed appearance. Many modern workers do not realise the effect that their day-to-day work and lifestyle has on their overall health and appearance. Studies have shown that massage can help to improve sleep quality, and reduce many of the overall signs of stress and age which can create an older and more tired appearance. In order to reduce stress related inflammation, you don't need to focus on any particular body area and can instead focus on whichever area of the body is holding the most stress. 

If you want to take a more holistic approach to look beautiful, getting a regular body massage can be a great addition. If you are looking to create a more naturally beautiful appearance, why not book a body massage to reduce inflammation, bloating and stress while improving skin appearance .
