Perhaps you feel guilty taking time for yourself.  Or you feel like you’re too busy.  Or you feel like you’re being greedy or selfish by practicing healthy self-care.

Taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is not only NOT selfish, it helps to ensure that you can live up to your potential.  Taking care of yourself allows you to be able to take care of others in a healthy and effective way.

Massage happens to be an ideal component for healthy self-care.  Not only does it feel great, but it helps to care for many aspects of your wellness.  Getting a massage on a regular basis improves your immune system, reduces stress, improves sleep, and helps ward off depression.

At Body & Soul Massage we strive to make your massage session a healing experience that is tailored to you. Your experienced therapist will not only ask about the aches or pain you may be feeling, but they will ask about your daily lifestyle, things that may be stressors in your life, about your activity levels and your goals for the session.

Remember Self-care helps you process stress in a healthier way. Taking proper care of yourself helps your stress to not get the best of you. Self-care helps you to step away and refocus allowing you to reprioritize and enjoy a renewed focus on what’s important. Self-care helps you avoid energy debt. When your energy and passion are depleted, there is nothing left to enjoy your favorite things, your favorite people, and your favorite activities.

Having a well-cared-for body can make you feel good about yourself and your life, and conveys to others that you value yourself. This can contribute to long-term feelings of wellbeing. Body & Soul Massage offers a monthly Membership massage program to help make “me time” a priority. Call today to learn more 978-825-0040. HSA plans accepted.
