For many of us –a vacation is simply out of the question due to schedules, finances etc.
BUT you can still get some great summertime stress relief– in your own town!
Just schedule massage! Maybe include a dinner out or carry out and a movie! Just relax and pamper yourself with some self kindness.
Massage stimulates the “rest and digest” systems of the body that function best when stressors are eliminated (the parasympathetic system). Regular massage has been shown to help with blood pressure, sleeplessness, and other symptoms of this fast paced world. Of course massage has deeper therapeutic value too, but we are keeping it light, we are on vacation!
So whether you go on vacation or not, take the time to put massage into your normal self care, health care routine…. your muscles and peace of mind will thank you for it!
