Massage... only for the Wealthy? only as a Luxury?
These are the misconceptions that keep people from experiencing something so very vital to the health and wellness of the human body and mind. Stress, weather mental and or physical is the number one cause of all pain and disease. With massage the nervous system is calmed, muscles are exercised without exhausting the muscle, and blood and lymph are moved and flushed out making way for fresh blood, lymph and nutrients to move in, overall boosting the immune system. Massage has been used for thousands of years for its medical benefits. It is a natural remedy instilled in our DNA and most do not realize this. For instance, if someone hits you in the arm, or you bump your shin on the coffee table, what is the first thing you do? You rub it. You put pressure on it. This is massage. So contrary to popular belief massage is for everybody, everyday, under the pressure of our everyday stressors.
