Ready...set...go! Can it really be THAT time already? Yes...students will be settling in to school this month in Columbus, Indiana. Colleges will be starting toward the end of August. And with the restart of school comes new schedules, new routines, supplies and clothes to be purchased, sport and/or band practices...all mixed in with your already busy schedule of day to day life! Stress and tension can build up oh so quickly for all of us...Dads, Moms, teachers and children. When you start feeling your muscles tighten, stop what you are doing and take 5-10 slow, deep breaths. Check your posture and if your shoulders are trying to touch your ears...lower them gently. Are your hands balled in a fist or are your jaws clenched? Slowly return them to a neutral position. These are easy things you can do wherever you are. And then later, check out my website for all the services I offer and contact me to make an appointment for a massage! It is good preventative medicine. Let's work together to make it a great school year!
Be well...be happy!
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
