This post will guide you on how to use coupons or massage gift cards in Lexington, KY so that you can acquire massage therapy at equal rates.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
The benefits of massage therapy are well-documented: it can relieve stress, improve mood, reduce anxiety and depression, decrease pain sensitivity and chronic pain symptoms such as headaches and migraines. It also improves immune functions by raising natural killer cells (NK cells) activity. A 2011 study found that massage therapy could be an effective treatment for insomnia because it induces deep sleep with high quality dreams.
Types of Massage Therapies
Massages are offered in a variety of ways, from the traditional to the exotic.
All massages require you to show up for a massage. However, some professional and semi-professional massage therapists do reserve the right to make other services available as long as it does not interfere with the massage session. You can also ask for “without clothes” or for a “happy ending”. If you ask for a happy ending, you must pay extra money depending on what kind of service is offered. But be warned: Not all masseuses have happy endings! Asking them will ruin your experience if they do not offer them.
Many massages also have additional services, such as aromatherapy oil massages and hot stone massage. Some massage centers also have a more complete range of treatments like Swedish massages, facial and body wraps, reflexology, exotic massages and Reiki.
