Whether you’ve never had a therapeutic massage before or you enjoy them regularly, Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day is the day to make the most of what these massages have to offer. The day is about embracing those benefits and taking the time to relax, and if it’s something that you’ll be doing for the first time, you’ll soon find yourself wanting more.

With so many of us leading busy, demanding and stressful lives, it’s important to stop and think about your own health and relaxation sometimes. That’s one of the reasons why Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day was started. It gives you a chance to relax and enjoy the benefits of massage.

Health matters more than anything else, and it’s more than worth investing a little time and money in looking after your body with a regular massage. That’s what Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day aims to remind us of as we rush through life.

Some things need to be prioritized over others and that’s certainly the case with our health. Nothing matters more, so why not treat yourself and take some time to relax? It’s the least you can do for your body.

History of Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day

So, how did Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day begin? It’s been running since 2014 and in that time, it’s helped to raise awareness of the many health and relaxation benefits that are brought about by receiving regular therapeutic massages.

Many people might vaguely understand what massages can do for their body, but they might be aware of the wide range of therapeutic massage styles out there and they almost certainly won’t have tried them all. This day was started with the intention of giving people a chance to try the options out there.

Medicinal styles of therapeutic massages are promoted to help people feel real health benefits post-massage. Lomi Lomi, Ayurvedic and Acupressure massages are all encouraged as part of Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day.

How to Celebrate Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day

The first thing you can do to celebrate Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day is change your mindset. Instead of looking at massages as a luxury that you can’t really afford to dedicate to, look at them as an essential part of the way in which you look after yourself on a regular basis.

On the day itself, you can make a commitment to trying a form of therapeutic massage that you haven’t tried before, such as the ones we’ve already mentioned above. These can help you put aside your day to day stresses and instead dedicate some time to yourself and your own wellbeing.

Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day is all about restoring mental and physical health if those are things that you have been neglected recently because of your busy lifestyle. It’s something that the vast majority of people can massively benefit from.

Therapeutic massages rejuvenate you and bring about many important health benefits, so don’t hesitate to make the most of them next time Therapeutic Massage Awareness Day comes around.
