I’m giving busy people everywhere permission to schedule a personal massage. Why? Because I’m alarmed by how few people I know that have taken the time to indulge in a relaxing and therapeutic massage.
There are many reasons that you, no matter who you are, should be getting a massage regularly. One of the biggest and most obvious reasons that a massage should be a regular part of your life is because of how relaxing and stress relieving it is. We a all know that life is stressful and demanding. What you may not realize, however, is how much that stress affects your physical body. Massage is an amazing way to de-stress and unwind after a busy week. When life is stressful our muscles quickly reflect our stress by becoming tense and knotted up. A massage can release the tension in your muscles in no time.
A massage will not only relax your body, but it will also relax your mind. There is no value that can be given to having a mind that is relaxed and at peace even in the midst of a chaos and disaster filled world. Massage can be therapeutic for your mind and allow you to focus again on what is truly important. Wouldn’t you love to have an hour a week where your body and your mind were in a fully relaxed state? I promise you, a massage really is as good as it sounds.
There are many proven physical health benefits to getting a massage as well. Our bodies are constantly collecting harmful substances and toxins that are damaging to our health in many ways. One of the greatest benefits of a deep tissue massage is that it can help to release some of the harmful substances and toxins that have embedded themselves into our muscles. As the toxins are freed from our muscles we can flush them out of our bodies much easier simply by drinking a lot of water. The benefits of removing toxins from your body are nearly endless. Cancers and other serious health issues can be caused by a buildup of harmful toxins, so taking the time to get a deep tissue massage can be one of several ways to make your life healthier and longer.
I simply ask anyone reading this to find someplace to get a massage and give it a try. A quick glance through your phone book or a quick online search will help you find a variety of massage therapists who would be happy to relieve some of your stress. Make an appointment and see how your life will benefit from an hour a week. What could be better than something that is healthy and feels great? Get a massage today!
