Massages for Mom at The NOW Boutique in Newport Beach: Benefits of Massage Extend Far Beyond Relaxation | Newport Mesa Moms

Moms always deserve ways to unplug and unwind from the stress of everyday life, and The NOW is the perfect sanctuary to do just that! Recent studies show that regular massage offers significant benefits beyond relaxation, such as reducing inflammation, helping manage stress and depression, treating sports injuries and aiding sleeplessness. Health professionals are recommending massages more frequently, and they have become a regular part of many people’s wellness routine.

We sat down with the owner of The NOW Massage Corona del Mar, Jamie Fox, to talk about the restorative benefits of the Swedish-inspired massage.

What are the elements of the Swedish-inspired massage?

Swedish massage is known for being the most relaxing technique. The Swedish modality emphasizes treating the muscles with long strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Kneading, friction, tapping and gentle shaking motions are commonly utilized during a Swedish style massage.

What are some of the benefits of this type of massage?

Research has proven that massage can increase serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin, all of which help to elevate your mood and general well-being. Massage can also help increase range of motion, and improve posture in addition to a host of other muscle and energy related issues.  And of course there is my favorite benefit: the feeling of being pampered and leaving in a state of pure bliss!

For moms who don’t normally get massages, what do you recommend as a beginner treatment?

For a new guest, we suggest booking our signature NOW massage and adding the Hemp Calm Balm enhancement for next-level healing. Everyone can benefit from taking time to reset and recharge via a massage, which in turn allows you to show up better for those around you – I know this is especially important for moms! When speaking with your massage therapist during the intake, be upfront about which type of pressure you prefer and discuss any injuries or concerns you have that may need more attention. We also offer our Prenatal Glow enhancement for expectant mothers 12+ weeks. Regular massages can help with a lot of the muscle tension and fatigue moms-to-be and new moms experience.

How often do you recommend massages for optimal health?

Consistency is key for getting the most from massage therapy – with that, I recommend getting massages on a monthly or bi-weekly basis. Everyone has different needs and will come in at a different frequency but one thing is certain, all moms can benefit from a great massage NOW!
