Happy November! Frequently people get so excited and involved in planning for Christmas now, they miss the blessing of this month all by itself. The two words I would use for this month are Blessings and Thankfulness. Most of us have so many Blessings that our Thankfulness should easily flow from our hearts and verbalized. My Blessings include family and friends, a home, (new windows on this home!), a job, food, Jesus in my heart, my cat, and clothes to wear and keep me warm! Included in friends and a job are my massage clients. I am so Thankful for each of you . . . my life is truly Blessed because of you.
Please take time this month to reflect on your Blessings and share your Thankfulness in some way. Send a card to someone special or someone who needs encouragement. Share some of your bounty with the local food pantry or someone you know who needs some extra. Do the same with some of your clothes that you can't wear or won't wear any longer. Be creative. Have your family think of special things you can do for your neighbors. If you can do it without them knowing would be fun. And because it's what I do, contact me to buy someone a massage to Thank them for being a Blessing to you! Have a Blessed month.
Be well . . . be happy!
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
