How often do you say to yourself, “Wow I need a massage?” Just occasionally, right? Or how about “My back has been killing me lately?” Probably more often than you think about getting a massage.
What if I told you that there’s a way to help soothe that aching back, lower stress, and reduce muscle tension…
(Don’t worry, no pills needed)
You’ve probably already guessed what I’m going to suggest, right?
(Cat naps included, no extra charge)
Massage has a ton of benefits: an hour massage equates to 7-8 hours of sleep, it lowers blood pressure, reduces anxiety and depression, and relieves muscle tension; plus a whole list of things that would make this post way too long and cause you to fall asleep while reading.
Most common back pain stems directly from stress and/or anxiety. These emotions cause hormones to be released and wreak havoc on the body, causing high blood pressure, muscle tightness, and migraines. And the longer you’re stressed, the worse it gets. Your immune system gets compromised, you start to get irritated more often, you get tired, and end up at the doctor for pain that’s lasted so long you can’t remember when it started.
SO. Let’s go back to beginning of when you first started feeling that little pain. Instead of letting it fester, you book a massage (maybe just for relaxation, maybe because you hoped it would help a little), afterwards you feel so good you schedule one for the next month. Each time just gets better and better, you start to feel happier, you have more energy, and you start jogging and give up Diet Coke thats a pipe dream Kaley, never ever gonna happen).
The point of the matter is, massage can help you get ahead and even manage some problems before they even appear. What seems to be a minor inconvenience can turn into a major pain in the glutes. Soooo, stop what you’re doing to ignore your problems, book a massage and see for yourself.
Those are my facts and this leads me to one last thing.
One last image for you (besides the one that should be playing in your head about getting a relaxing massage with a bunch of candles and soft music and lighting straight out of the “Total Eclipse of the Heart” music video, minus the creepy choir boys…)
