The Miracle Minute!
By Regina Elvis

Now that we’re in the New Year everybody’s focus is on their New Years Resolutions and becoming a better you! As you head out to the gym and look at making dietary changes one thing I’d like to encourage you to do is to look at getting regular massages from a licensed professional. Massage feels good because it is good for you!

As our bodies go through stress and illness our muscles lock down and armor, which blocks the rivers of life from flowing freely through your body. This not only feeds nutrition to areas that are depleted but also irrigates and lifts off the toxins that lead to disease. Therefore building the integrity in your body’s foundation on a cellular level, this helps you to prevent injuries and also allows you to have a more effective workout.

No matter how organized your schedule, laid-back your attitude, or carefree your lifestyle very few people escape stress. Experts estimate that an upwards of 90% of disease is stress related. Perhaps nothing ages us faster internally and externally than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world maybe idealistic, massage can without a doubt help manage stress. Massage therapy also helps to lower Cortisol; a hormone that’s produced in response to stress by an average of 31%; and when Cortisol levels decline, Serotonin; one of the body’s anti-pain mechanisms; increases. So by lowering Cortisol you boost your body’s ability to fend off pain.

This translates to:

•Decreased anxiety
•An enhanced sleep quality
•Greater energy
•Improved circulation
•Reduced fatigue

Massage therapy has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions including lower back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and more. Getting a massage can do a world of good and getting massages frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled, self-care can play a huge part on how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll feel with every year to come.
