You know that your well-being is important and self-care is a vital part of looking after that yourself. No matter your occupation, you need to take time to do something good for yourself because if you are grouchy, depleted, tired or in pain, you’ll have no interest or energy to do anything for the other people who need you.
You know it makes sense!
A good massage will help relieve muscle tension. Muscle tension can lead to headaches, which put you in a grouch. Nobody wants a grouchy parent/co-worker/boss/friend, do they? Therefore, others will thank you for getting a massage when you return with a sunny disposition.
It helps you sleep! If your insomnia is starting to irritate you and/or your family, contact ‘living well’ to schedule a massage. It’s true that a massage helps to boost serotonin levels (which have been proven to help with sleep). Obviously, being tired makes you so much less productive at work too, so a decent massage helps you work smarter…
Suffering from chronic pain? It’s an expensive business isn’t it? If the cost of your pain meds is starting to mount up, see if getting a massage on a regular basis might help you to reduce the amount of meds you need to take. Then you’ll be saving money and not using so many meds, both of which put you at an advantage.
Are you constantly getting colds, coughs and infections that you end up passing on to everyone else? Deep tissue and Swedish massage have been proven to support the lymphatic system which is your body’s defense system against illness.
The happier you are, the more you and others will benefit from your improved mood and general relaxed demeanor. Massage can calm your central nervous system and give you a sense of peace that is great for you and good for those around you. So – you don’t have to make excuses or feel guilty for scheduling your next massage appointment at ‘living well’. Remember, your well-being is worth it!
