Dancing and the Advantages of Massage Therapy – Many Vancouver residents are aware of the five upcoming days of dancing, creativity, cutting-edge art as well as displays of the Punjabi folk arts that constitute the City of Bhangra Festival of 2018. Bhangra is a type of upbeat music, as well as an Indian folk dance akin to that seen in Bollywood movies, and the festival will celebrate the Indian Punjabi culture and its customs from the 13th of June to the 17th. Want to join in the celebrations, dancing and singing while looking your best? Then you should be sure to try some physical therapy to loosen up before the festival!
Massage therapy has been an integral part of Indian culture for more than 5000 years. Indians traditionally practiced the holistic” Ayurveda” healthcare system, of which massage constituted a central role. It quickly became evident that massage therapy brought a host of benefits to anyone receiving it, which is why it spread rapidly in both India and other parts of Asia. However, nowadays modern research can give us the more clear-cut reasons as to why massage is preferred by so many. Massage improves the body’s circulation and also helps loosen the body’s muscles and joints which in return allows the body to prepare for activity or exercise and will also boost movement and flexibility.
Any Vancouverite looking to try their hand at Bhangra dancing next week should, therefore, make sure to get a thorough massage beforehand. It prevents injury and loosens the muscles, making you more flexible and more able to follow in the elaborate Punjabi dancing customs. While you’re at it, you might as well make sure to receive a massage afterward as well. This is because dancing, whether it is Bhangra or other forms of dancing, can cause deep tissue and soft tissue tension. Massage therapy helps reduce this, naturally stretches your muscles, and even improves your posture following a dancing session. It is, therefore, an excellent way to make sure that you won’t hurt yourself while dancing and a great way to guarantee that you will be as graceful as possible doing it.
