I always love the New Year because it feels like a fresh start and full of possibilities, but even though we’ve not quite hit the end of January yet the festivities can seem like they were months ago. Those decisions you made just a few weeks back to exercise more, eat better or de-clutter your life may have taken a few knocks so now’s the time to re-focus on your health and wellness to make 2020 your healthiest year yet.
We only have one body and the time to take care of it is NOW because it’s got to last you a lifetime! The health of your body doesn’t just have an impact on your physical health but also on your mind and ultimately your overall quality of life. With the increased stress of modern life, coupled with any previous unprocessed trauma, it is no wonder that stress related illness (physical and mental) is on the increase.
A massage or an AromaTouch can care for your spirit, soul and body because they are all interconnected and why massage is considered a ‘holistic’ approach. We all know a good massage can reduce tension and pain and improve muscular balance and function, but it is also well documented that a nurturing massage can induce a deep sense of relaxation. Research1 shows that massage therapy can stimulate profound neurochemical changes in the body which increases the happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine, and psychological wellbeing, supporting our bodies to heal from the inside out.
Of course we need to be aiming for balance in our bodies and an over production of any hormone can have a serious impact on health – which is why, when many of us are functioning with elevated levels of adrenaline and cortisol due to the stress of modern life or stuck past traumas, massage therapy can help you achieve total wellness as part of a healthy lifestyle.
