Almost the New Year

Well, it’s the end of the year again; a chance to reflect and smile😊 If this current and ending year has had stress in it or if your body has just had a hard time seeing you through 2019, then maybe a New Years resolution is in order. I advocate reinvesting in your health with at least a monthly massage. I’m very good at what I do and I know I can help you overcome the stress and stressors of the coming year.

I looked up the definition of stress on/at https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/stress, and this what I found: “pressure or tension exerted on a material object; and a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.”

We are material objects and we have pressure/tension exerted on us all the time! One of the ones I have is driving on this highway where I live. It’s not I-40 but it’s a highway where the speed limit is 55; but there must be this unwritten law or invisible speed limit sign that has 47 on it. 9 times out of ten, the car in front of me goes 47 miles per hour. I try to mentally explain to them that they should be going 55, but they don’t listen. That’s one of my stressors. It can and has caused mental and emotional strain. Maybe you can identify with road issues, but there are SO many stressors out there.

Our bodies muscular system, our muscles, are our armor. And when stress and pressure comes our muscles armor-up. They get hard with trigger points. No one is immune, that’s how our bodies work. When I was in school I was told that there are cave paintings that depict massage. It’s been around for forever because stress has been around forever. The stressors may have changed since prehistoric times but stressors remain. Massage is the answer. Massage, stress and trigger points have been around since the beginning.

Just google benefits of massage and a whole host of benefit lists come up. From this website, https://www.urbannirvana.com/10-benefits-massage-therapy/, these benefits were given:

“These are the 10 most common benefits reported from massage therapy:

Reduce Stress. A relaxing day at the spa is a great way to unwind and de-stress. ...Improve Circulation. ...Reduce Pain. ...Eliminate Toxins. ...Improve Flexibility. ...Improve Sleep. ...Enhance Immunity. ...Reduce Fatigue.

If you will read on, you will understand that massage is so good for you!
