We know how busy life can be when you have kids. Whether you spend your days running around after a toddler whilst juggling the needs of a newborn, or you’re a busy working Mum trying to balance your professional life with the requirements of multiple children, your own needs can slip quickly down the pile in terms of your priorities.

Amazing Massages in Palmerston North

Every Mum needs some time out to rest and relax. We think that massages are essential for busy mothers – here’s why:

Busy Mums Need Quiet Time

When did you last get a chance to truly switch off? Chances are you can’t remember. There’s always something to do; especially now we’re plugged into our smartphones 24/7. All it takes is a few moments of peace and quiet to help ‘top up’ your quiet time, giving yourself a few moments in which to just think (or even better – not think at all).

Busy Mums Need Stress Relief

Modern life with kids is very stressful, and a massage is an incredible tool for stress relief. A massage can release tension in the muscles in the neck, arms, and shoulders. If you’re constantly carrying a baby around on your hip, or you’re hunched over a computer working in between school runs, this could be a real boost and will leave you feeling calm and relaxed.

Busy Mums Need an Energy Boost

If there’s one thing mothers need, it’s more energy. Massages can help you feel energised, as they enhance the circulation of blood around the body – this can reduce tension from muscles and give you a much-needed boost.

Plus, massages can help you to relax so much that you may sleep better at night. If you suffer from insomnia or just find it hard to switch your mind off at night, a massage may help you get a better night’s sleep, giving your body a much-needed chance to recharge.

Massages Give Brighter Skin

If you need a bit of a boost for your skin, massage can help. Massages can increase blood circulation, kick-starting lymphatic drainage. If you want to get your glow back, a massage could be just the trick.

Massages are Mood Boosting

If you need a little boost in your mood, massage can help. It can reduce stress hormones (cortisol) and raise happiness hormones (serotonin and dopamine). If you’ve ever wondered why you come away from a massage feeling really happy – this is the reason!

Plus, the chance to have a little quiet time can help you to reset your mood. Sometimes, life gets so busy that we forget to be grateful for what we have – the peaceful retreat of a massage can give you a chance to take stock.

Massages Can Reduce Tension Headaches

If you suffer from stress, you may find yourself with a tension headache. Head massages can help with this, especially if you book them in regularly. If you find yourself reaching for the paracetamol to help reduce your headaches a lot, it might be worth booking in for a massage to see if it helps you to feel better.

Alchemy & I has a range of massages to make you feel relaxed, recharged and ready for busy mums to face the world again.
