Edward Smith-Stanley said: "Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness"
A truly healthy balanced person has a sound body and mind that is free of disease and illness. Healthy living includes taking the steps needed to optimize one's chances of surviving and thriving, like eating a healthy diet, exercising or staying active, and receiving bodywork such as regular massage therapy.
One shouldn't underestimate the value of a gentle Swedish massage or a vigorous deep tissue massage. For example our foot alone has 52 bones, 38 muscles and tendons, 66 joints, 214 ligaments and over 100,000 receptors.
Did you know that when you run, up to four times your body weight presses on your feet?
Because of the potential for high pressures on the feet, a small problem in the foot can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain, misalignment and discomfort.
My feet are by far the most massaged part of my body on any given day.
Massage Therapy is a key ingredient in restoring health and vitality to our tissues. It stimulates thousands of receptors and creates a stronger connection between our nervous system and our body. It improves the circulation to the bones, muscles, ligaments and joints. Simply put it optimizes our chances for a healthy balanced life.
