Can you believe that I just had my first ever massage experience thanks to Cape Town Mobile Massages . I have been privileged enough to have been contacted by them to partner on the things to do before and after the holidays to prepare your body for the festive activities and to calm your body after the festive season and this is all about the massages.
Cape Town Mobile Massages offers both Swedish and Sensual massages to its clients and they each cost R300 person. What is great about them you may ask. What makes them different to all the other spas? THEY DO HOUSE CALLS! The only thing you have to pay for is the service. Swedish and sensual massages differ in that Swedish massages are more intense and focus on muscle relief from tension rather than the touch (best way I could describe it) and the other focuses on the soft touches to relieve stress and to get your body into a relaxation state.
The reason why I was excited to get a massage before the holidays is because in my family, the holidays mean we will be doing a lot of traveling, cooking, cleaning and hosting different family members from all walks of like- this means I will be making tea every 2 hours everyday. I have to then get my body prepared for all the work, get it calm and relaxed with no muscle tension otherwise I will be having a tough time.
There after upon my return, I will need a massage to get my blood flowing and preparing mind and body for what will be the busiest year of my life with my business launching and going strong, being a full time employee, traveling and writing about all this, I am going to need all the massages Cape Town Mobile Massages has to offer!
The benefits of massages:
- Reduce Stress
- Improves blood circulation
- Reduces pain either from working out, bad sitting habits, etc
- Eliminate toxins
- Improves sleep because your body is relaxed
- Enhances immunity
- Reduces fatigue
- Alleviates depression and anxiety
- Reduces post-injury swelling for all the clumsy hikers like myself.
There are however so many things you can do by yourself that will not need money to cleanse your body and get it to relax such as 10 min yoga poses which you can get off YouTube or asking your little sibling to walk on your back softly to release tension from your back muscles- I know 2018 has been tough for almost all of us! Treat yourself to a massage and check out Cape Town Mobile Massages so they come to you- you can do a girls date day and just call up your friends, have some wine and ask the CPMM to come to you.
I would like to thank Sean from CPMM for his professionalism and constantly asking me if I was comfortable considering it was my first massage.
