Massage is amazing, wonderful, downright mouthwatering to most. It feels good! I recently was talking with a client about this that and the other thing and the subject of time came up. She mentioned to me that her neighbors family member buys her neighbor “house cleaning service for a year.” I thought that was so creative and amazing. What a help that is to her neighbor to have her home taken care of while she takes care of her family and works full time. I personally love the idea of receiving a gift for a year. Changing a habit takes about 66 days. Often it’s TIME that keeps us from creating that good habit. I didn’t even know my clients neighbor but I felt so happy for her! I could sense how much she must truly had appreciated what her family had done for her.
That got me thinking, well the client really said it first, What about massage for a year? Eureka that is brilliant! What about giving the gift of frequent stress reduction! Brilliant again! Research about massage has come along way due to some major pioneers in the field (The Massage Therapy Foundation is one I can think of). Behind the scenes (under your skin) there is so much going on when you receive a massage for stress reduction.
Massage creates a sensory experience which I feel many of us lack. Do you wake up at the same time every morning, eat at the same time every day and do many other things “the same” daily? Do sometimes feel like you are part of the living dead? I felt like that for many years when I worked in the corporate world. Massage is not going to increase your pay or decrease your work load but it can help you manage your stress and bring a sense of relaxation to your mental, physical and spiritual self. Massage can allow your mind to open up to a new sense of purpose. Oprah says this “When we know better we do better” I also think that when we feel good we do good. Stress is part of the pain epidemic, stress comes out in physical ways —-> Check out this article. And I quote:
“If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. “…..”The most dangerous thing about stress is how easily it can creep up on you. You get used to it. It starts to feels familiar even normal.”
We all handle stress differently, and massage should be a part of your “life” balancing act! It really really should. I once met a lovely woman that didn’t like massage because she had to remove her clothes. No so fast Missy, massage can be done fully clothed and still have the same effects needed to manage stress.
