Do you self massage? When you roll your head or rub your shoulders that’s exactly what you’re doing.
I used to dream about being able to go get a massage once a month. It seemed so impossible to me because it was such an expense. Then cancer.
Since being out of active cancer treatments I’ve gone to get a massage every six weeks. Not only because it feels amazing, or that it’s been my dream, but because of the benefits.
Did you know that any massage is a great way to:
- Relieve stress
- Boost immunity
- Drain the lymph system
- Increase blood flow to your skin
- Slow the aging process
- Relive muscle tension
- Improve sleep
And so much more?
Well, it is! And not only that, it’s a great way to slow down (which you know I’m a huge advocate of doing) and do something good for yourself.
I’ve put together this list of articles to help you get on the road to a healthier self. Each article talks about different ways to self massage and the benefits.
Why not start a new habit in the coming weeks that’ll help keep you relaxed and healthy!
