You don’t have to be a pro football player or a member of a hockey team to need the benefits of a great massage. If you are a mother lifting groceries and babies or a construction worker climbing about and using heavy tools all day, you can benefit physically from massage. If you are a person who sits behind a desk, bombarded by stressful phone calls or a person who works against a constant deadline, you qualify to beat the stress with massage too.
From infancy to old age, massage has been found to enhance general health and well-being. Massage has many applications and variations. Because it is used for health promotion as well as for its curative aspect, it can truthfully be said “if you have a body, you can benefit from massage”.
Wellness is a concept in which a person takes personal responsibility for his/her state of health. It is a preventative plan in which a person makes a conscious effort to recognize conditions, situations and practices that may affect health positively or negatively, be it nutrition, exercise or rest and relaxation needs. The effects of stress are cumulative, as are the effects of massage.
It is well known that a balanced life is essential to optimal health. Balance in diet, exercise, work and play, and social relationships plays an important role in physical and mental well-being. In today’s fast paced world, one of our greatest health challenges is to balance the effects of stress in our lives. Rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit with a relaxing and healing massage. Given the opportunity, the body will heal itself.
