Therapeutic Massage for a Healthy Life!
I LOVE when clients arrive for their regular massage session and instantly feel relaxed and relief just from walking into our space! What is that? Why does that happen? It’s called MUSCLE MEMORY. Your mind-body connection clicks on when you step foot into OPEN SKY because you have felt relaxed, rejuvenated and less stress here. It is the same feeling when you walk in the door at home. “Coming Home” has a natural response, a letting go, a knowing that all will be well. We welcome you to “Come Home” for your regular massage, walk thru our doors, and onto our heated massage tables for your massage! See you soon for some Muscle Memory time!
The Consequences of Stress
Experts estimate that 80 percent to 90 percent of disease is stress-related. Massage and bodywork is there to combat that frightening number by helping us remember what it means to relax. The physical changes massage brings to your body can have a positive effect in many areas of your life. Besides increasing relaxation and decreasing anxiety, massage lowers your blood pressure, increases circulation, improves recovery from injury, helps you to sleep better and can increase your concentration. It reduces fatigue and gives you more energy to handle stressful situations.
Massage is a perfect elixir for good health, but it can also provide an integration of body and mind. By producing a meditative state or heightened awareness of living in the present moment, massage can provide emotional and spiritual balance, bringing with it true relaxation and peace.
It’s undoubtedly a wonderful thing when your therapist begins unwinding those stress-tightened muscles, and your day’s troubles begin to fade away. But it’s the cherry on top to know this “medicine” only gets better with frequency.
