Ladies, a massage is not a luxury

Everyday stress takes a toll on all of us. One hour out of your day, you lay down quietly and as the massage therapist, through touch connects you with each part of your body.

As women we need a soothing touch and a massage is the best soothing touching you can have.  Touch is such a basic comfort to us and we tend to seriously underestimate its power to heal and to make us feel connected to other people—an essential part of being human.

I believe that in general women would be a little bit more happier and healthier if they could schedule a weekly/fortnight/monthly massage into their lives.

And studies back me me up on this.  A massage, according to experts, is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. When massage is applied by a skilled, empathetic masseuse, it can be a very effective remedy for problems connected to muscular tension.

I think that the reason why most women don't go regularly for a massage is that we still see things like massage as luxuries, instead of just basic human maintenance.

Ladies a massage is not a luxury. It’s important to remember two things about massages: 

1) The effects of massage are cumulative.  So your second massage builds on the good effects of your first, and so on.  If you receive your massages too far apart, then with each massage you are back at square one.  What a waste of your money!  

2) One massage won’t “fix” your problem. It has taken days, weeks, or even years to develop a stiff neck or painful low back.  The condition won’t be reversed in 1 hour.  

Massage is no longer available only through luxury spas and upscale health clubs. Today, massage therapy is offered in businesses, clinics, hospitals and even airports.

Putting back what we give out, it's like the current advert.... "Because you're worth it". We need to give ourselves permission to be healthier and to feel better, and the first step towards that, is to give time to You.

Remember each person is unique, and you should listen to your body.  So book that massage to recharge, get centered, rejuvenate, refresh, and float away. Enjoy.
