Happy New Year 2018! Hopefully you had a great 2017 and are ready for another great or an even better year.
What are you wanting to change or improve on? I could put many things on this list, but because I am in a health field, I would like to see everyone take a serious look at their health. Many health issues or diseases are brought on or exacerbated by stress. So, do some research on what stress is and how it adversely effects your health, then do more research on ways to manage your stress. Continue with some trials on some or all these ways to see which is most effective for you.
Speaking from my experience, I would have to say regular massage should be at the top of this list. But sometimes your budget does not allow for this, so you will use something that works best for you. (Before you give up the idea of regular massage, you might check with your Health Insurance or Health Savings Account. They are getting better at offering Complementary Medicine options.) Whether you're interested in starting a regimine of regular massages, or just need a "tune up" after a stressful holiday season, contact me to schedule an appointment.
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.
