31 Day Skin Care Re-Boot Challenge Day 21
Treat Yourself To A Body Massage
When was the last time you enjoyed a body massage? If you’re the “average Josie”, probably way to long. But who wants to be an “average Josie?” Massage has so many benefits, where do I begin….
Every year when I go on vacation I get at least 2 massages and throughout the year I plan on at least 4-6 more. Massage is sometimes perceived as a luxury but in reality it’s a “mind mending, body healing, emotional oasis.”
Massage is all about deserving… do you feel you’re worth it? Human touch is healing. It’s leaving yourself open to being vulnerable, laying bare to the healing touch of another human. A great massage therapist keeps you at ease and can tune into whatever your body needs at any given time. If you don’t feel you deserve healing touch , no one else will.
With that being said, anyone that you invite into your personal space needs to resonate with your particular energy. We are all made of energy, vibrating as a collective whole, so whomever you allow to pierce your subtle body energy and mix with your deeper personal energy needs to be positive, loving and compassionate. Getting a referral is always the best way to find a massage therapist.
