I was waiting in the quiet room waiting for my massage therapist and noticed an article by Massage Envy that read, “Why a Pre-Wedding Massage is a Must”. I treat myself to one massage per month and I have discovered all the magical benefits of that one massage a month. I thought, what a perfect match – regular massage as you are preparing for your wedding.
Did you know that on average, 7,000 couples marry each day in the United States? Wow! If you have planned a wedding or are currently planning a wedding then you know the stress that creates. If you are like me, I carry my stress in my neck and shoulder muscles. Planning a wedding would create some serious bunched muscles! Pre and post-event massage rids the body of the physical manifestations of stress. Massage breaks muscle spasm by disengaging the fibers and allowing them to return to their natural state and getting the muscles to relax a bit will allow the mind to happily follow suit. Massage triggers relaxation. Your heart and breathing rate slow, your blood pressure goes down and your production of stress hormones decrease. This relaxation seems to increase serotonin levels (the feel-good chemical).
It’s hard to find the time to reduce our stress, especially in the busy months of planning a wedding. This leaves us irritable, fatigued and can create anxiety. In the months, weeks and days leading up to your big day, try to include activities in your routine that you know will calm you. Some choose physical activity like working out and don’t forget that massage has tremendous health and stress relief benefits. Try not to let the quest for wedding day perfection consume you. I love to see the bride and groom enjoy their day and really be able to be in the moment. Being consumed by details can get in the way of that. Consider pre-wedding massage as you are preparing for your wedding.
