Better self-care is a resolution that most people make each new year, most often to lose weight, eat healthier, start exercising, or to spend more quality time with loved ones. We’re all increasingly aware that stress reduction and relaxation are critical to our health. ‘Our bodies break down under the onslaught of stress—insomnia, anxiety, depression, and all chronic disease is made worse by unremitting stress,’ says Dr. Mark Hyman, an influential Massachusetts physician, author, and founder of the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Touch, stillness, relaxation, calming the mind—all are essential to healing, staying well, and thriving. We encourage you to think about how to incorporate these practices into your self-care plans. People are increasingly viewing massage as a significant component of a more relaxed and healthy lifestyle. And the many benefits of therapeutic massage are now being researched and recognized by the medical community. Make regular massage an essential part of your self-care plans for this New Year!
