“Massage surprised me. I thought it was just a pampering that some women budgeted for themselves. I, however, was told by a co-worker that it might help my stiff neck and shoulders caused by repeated actions performed in my job. From my very first massage, I knew it would become part of my “team” that kept me well.
I learned through my massage therapist where I held the tension in my body, and where my body was unbalanced causing tension and strain on my muscles. As the massage therapist worked on my body, it was like she was reading the muscles inside me and taking away all the damage I had done to them.
After many years of getting massages, I still feel like it is the most important wellness appointment I make for myself. In learning more about the inside muscular map of my body, through my massage therapist, I am aware of, and change, stressful actions I do to my body. By caring for my body through massage, I truly feel it is keeping me more active. I also feel that with less tense muscles pulling on joints, I am able to be a healthier active person.”
