The Importance of Massage on the Body and Mind

During every massage, multiple body systems are affected - from the sound of the music and the scent of the lotion to the nurturing touch. Each subtle aspect gives rise to a healthier being, integrating the body and mind.

"It's easiest to ignore the self because the only one to whom you're accountable is YOU.

In the face of intense pressure to meet the performance expectations of the people around you at work, at home, and in the community you're naturally inclined to give yourself short shrift.

Focusing time and attention on yourself is too readily construed as being, well, selfish -- and so you're likely to feel guilty if you do so. Unfortunately, while it might seem noble in the short run to sacrifice the needs you have to cultivate your mind, body, and spirit, over time it's a recipe for burnout.

A sustainable life as a leader who contributes meaningfully to the world requires the discipline to take care of you, too.

How, then, to overcome the guilt? The key is to very specifically identify how, by better meeting the expectations you have for enhancing your mind, your body, and your spirit, you are indeed making things better at work, at home, and in the community.

It's not that hard: Just think, for example, about how you're more likely to perform better at work and at home and in the community -- according to the standards of those who evaluate you in these different domains -- if you get a full night's rest, exercise regularly, eat well, meditate, do yoga, take a walk, listen to music, or do whatever it is that rejuvenates and restores you."

Getting Healthy (Starting Over)

At different points in our lives, it seems that circumstances take over and life spins out of control.

This can happen through the loss of a job, illness or death. Each instance is fraught with its own challenges, one of the most prominent being sleep.

After losing a job, it's normal to worry - how are you going to pay the bills, keep a roof over your head or afford to eat. With illness there can be aches, pains, extraordinary symptoms and worry. And, following a death, your senses, memories and emotions are ignited, leaving your entire body feeling raw and exposed. Each of these instances can keep you from experiencing restful, restorative sleep.

Sleep deprivation can cause irritability, lapses/losses in memory, impaired judgment, attention deficit, depression, aching muscles, headaches, increased blood pressure and hallucinations. Lack of sleep can also increase your risk for obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.

When sleep seems elusive, there are several holistic options that can help you. Exercise, Teas and Massage can aid in relaxing the body and mind to usher you into dreamland.

Once you get a good night's sleep, those circumstances that were spinning out of control, look differently, giving you space to breathe and think more clearly. When that happens, you are able to conquer anything and get back on track.

Uninterrupted sleep allows the body to repair and build muscle, consolidate memory, release hormones that regulate body functions, lower blood pressure and boost the immune system. All of which set the stage for a healthier, happier YOU!
