Take a Break Get a Massage

Posted by: admin In: Health

 In France, workers take a whole month off in the summer and take eight weeks off the rest of the year!  Can you imagine Americans doing that?  Most of us need to get by on just two weeks of vacation per year. 

So, to get away from it all after a good workout in your home gym, the best way to do it is to get a massage from your local massage therapist.  It will relieve stress and refresh you; not as much as a vacation would, but you get the whole idea.

We work too many long hours and often do so hunched over a computer screen. Even though we know we should take frequent breaks, get up, walk around or do some stretches, how often do we follow that advice? Then when we get home we tell ourselves we’re too tired to go for a walk or spend some time at the gym. So, we end up, once again, spending more time in one position with the only movement being done by our well-developed muscles that work the remote control.

Is it any wonder that our backs ache most of the time? Or surprising that rolling our neck muscles often sets off what sounds like fire crackers?

We may kid ourselves into thinking that collapsing in front of the television is a form of relaxation and therefore a way to rest and recharge so that we can go back out there and do it all over again tomorrow. The truth is that we, individually and as a society, desperately need to learn how to relax.

One of the best places to start is by turning off the TV and scheduling a massage. Of course we don’t feel like doing any sort of exercise or activity with tight shoulders and aching lower back muscles. An experienced massage therapist will zero in on those areas and have the knots worked out in no time and it will be one of the most relaxing hours you’ve spent in a long time.

If you have let yourself get into a place where you need more than a regular Swedish style massage, you may want to consider visiting a practitioner who specializes in deep tissue massage. She will be able to target those areas of chronic muscle tension or perhaps injury. Sometimes deep tissue work can be uncomfortable or even painful. This is one of the reasons that hot stone massage therapy has gained such popularity. When incorporated with a deep tissue session the heat from the stones relaxes those deeper muscles so that there is not the need to apply as much force or pressure.

There are actually many different types of massage. You might want to try several before settling on the one that is the best fit for you. Making this change could be one of the best things you ever do for yourself and may well be the first step in a whole new life.
