NOW more than ever, people are looking for ways to unplug and unwind from the stress of everyday life. We sat down with The NOW Massage co-founder and chief creative officer Gara Post to discuss the restorative benefits of massage therapy.
BCL: What are some of the benefits of massage?
Gara Post: Massage can help reduce inflammation, manage stress and anxiety, treat sports injuries and aid sleeplessness. Health professionals are recommending massages more frequently and it has become a regular part of many people’s wellness routine.
BCL: For those who are new to massage, what do you recommend as a first-time treatment?
GP: Everyone can benefit from the healing power of a good massage. Taking time to reset and recharge allows you to show up better for those around you. For a beginner treatment, we suggest our signature NOW massage with our Hemp Calm Balm enhancement for next-level healing.
BCL: How often do you recommend massages for optimal health?
GP: Consistency is key to receiving the maximum benefits from massage. Monthly or bi-monthly massages are recommended. Everyone has different needs and will come in at a different frequency, but one thing is certain, we can all use a great massage NOW.
