Massage: Treatment for the Winter Blues

Massage Treatment for the Winter Blues

Winter Blues? Try Massage Therapy

If the colder days and darker nights have you wishing for sunnier climes, consider booking a massage with a clinical massage therapist. Studies show that massage therapy offers patients relief from the winter blues by helping to reset circadian rhythms—which leads to increased energy and better quality sleep.

According to Jeff Smoot, President of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), “As we approach the colder, darker months, massage therapy may be an effective method of deflecting common seasonal challenges.” Seasonal depression has long been considered a real disorder affecting millions of people every winter.  Finally, there is a natural, holistic remedy to help alleviate the symptoms of the disorder.

If you’ve thought about a career helping others, massage therapy could be the right move for you. The Soma Institute in Chicago, Illinois has opened its February 2016 enrollment for the 11 and 15-month Clinical Massage Therapy Program.
