In Defense of Relaxation

Is life passing you by?
Is life passing you by?

You look at your watch. It’s five o’clock on Wednesday. Or it is only Tuesday?  You look at your desk barely visible beneath the post-it notes and paperwork. How will you ever get it all done? You clench your jaw at the thought. You have that throbbing headache behind your right eye again and your hands ache.

All you can think about is getting home, changing into those worn, blue sweatpants, and curling up on your sofa.

The next day is the same, and the next one. You spend every day of every week wishing it was Friday, but when it gets here you’re too exhausted to do anything but sleep.

Life doesn’t have to be like this. You can feel different. Massage Therapy can interrupt this cycle.

It’s Saturday and the sky is gray as you walk into Restoring Balance Massage. The room is dim, candlelit. The sound of ocean waves plays softly in the background. As you lay down on the massage table, you notice it’s heated. That feels nice. The massage therapist’s hands are warm as they slowly stroke you back. What seems like seconds later, your massage therapist softly touches your shoulder, in a soft voice “Anne, that’s our time for today. Please take your time getting up. There’s no rush.”

You feel awake. More like yourself than you have in months. You had forgotten what it feels like to be relaxed. You call your sister- “why don’t we go out tonight?”

Relaxation is not a luxury. Stress and pain are serious things that can affect the quality of your life. You owe it to yourself and the people you love to take care of yourself . Don’t wait!Schedule your massage today!
