As soon as you lay on the heated table it’s instant relaxation and you always wonder ‘why do I wait so long?’ 🤔
Massage is a fantastic therapy to add to your regular health routine.
Studies have indicated that regular massage sessions not only help reduce stress, but can also boost the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity (activity level of the body’s natural “killer cells”) and enhances the body’s ability to deliver nourishment.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. - #jimrohn
During a massage session, the body may experience changes at both the structural and chemical level. ... "When emotions accumulate in the muscle or tissue, there are times when a massage can release this flow of energy in the form of unexpected responses. It may sound alarming, but it is a normal part of healing.”
How accurate do you think this chart is?
Pretty accurate if you ask us.
Oh how good it feels once you ‘let go’, especially through a therapeutic massage.

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” -Denise Waitley
Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed again? 🤣
Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.
Who wants to feel good ALL OF THE TIME?
Not only is gratitude a warm and uplifting way to feel, it benefits the body as well. People who experience gratitude cope better with stress, recover more quickly from illness, and enjoy more robust physical health, including lower blood pressure and better immune function.
Try writing down one thing you are thankful for each morning.
“It forces your brain to do more ‘searching’, and it’s this mental ‘searching’ for good things that trains your brain to automatically seek out good things, making you more naturally positive. It’s a great thing to do for those with anxiety because anxious people will often think the worst; gratitude counteracts that.”
-Chloe Brotheridge author of ‘The Anxiety Solution’
There are many ways to improve our health on a daily basis. We cannot help others if we do not first help ourselves ❤️

We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don't allow our bodies to heal, and we don't allow our minds and hearts to heal.

Reach for water, skip the soda!💧
If you want sweeter-looking skin, sidestep the sugar. Sugar and highly refined carbohydrates, including white bread, white rice, French fries, and sugar-laded soda, can increase acne and speed aging by causing glycation-the result of sugar breaking down and bonding with protein molecules-which reduces the elasticity of collagen in your skin.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is secreted in the brain by specialized neurons (serotoninergic neurons). Massage promotes the release of serotonin, which explains the positive mood effect, and the observation that despite vigorous manipulation, people can fall asleep during a massage session. If you have trouble sleeping at night, a regular massage routine, once a week, once a month, etc., will greatly improve the quality of your sleep overtime.
Here’s an easy stretch to do throughout your day as we start our work week again! #hellomonday 💪

Why Breathing Exercises Help
When you have healthy lungs, breathing is natural and easy. You breathe in and out with your diaphragm doing about 80 percent of the work to fill your lungs with a mixture of oxygen and other gases, and then to send the waste gas out. Compare the process to a screen door with a spring, opening and shutting on its own. Our lungs are springy, like the door. Over time, though, with asthma and especially with COPD, our lungs lose that springiness. They don't return to the same level as when you start breathing, and air gets trapped in our lungs.
Over time, stale air builds up, leaving less room for the diaphragm to contract and bring in fresh oxygen. With the diaphragm not working to full capacity, the body starts to use other muscles in the neck, back and chest for breathing. This translates into lower oxygen levels, and less reserve for exercise and activity. If practiced regularly, breathing exercises can help rid the lungs of accumulated stale air, increase oxygen levels and get the diaphragm to return to its job of helping you breathe.
Because most bodily cells have cortisol receptors, it affects many different functions in the body. Cortisol can help control blood sugar levels, regulate metabolism, help reduce inflammation, and assist with memory formulation which is why it is so important to make sure your levels are not too high, or low.
Massage can help.
The findings are "very, very intriguing and very, very exciting -- and I'm a skeptic," study researcher Dr. Mark Hyman Rapaport, the chairman of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, told the Times.
Several studies have postulated that one of the physiological markers of the effect of massage therapy is to reduce the level of cortisol, the "stress hormone".
Researchers found that study participants who underwent the Swedish massage twice a week experienced decreases in cortisol levels, increased oxytocin levels (also known as the "trust hormone"), and slight evidence of increased white blood cell counts. They also experienced decreased levels of the hormone arginine vasopressin, which the Times pointed out is linked with cortisol rises.
The Mayo Clinic points out that other potential health benefits of massage include helping maintain a stable blood pressure, relieving stiffness and pain and even helping with anxiety and depression.
If this isn’t healing, we don’t know what is.

Research on gratitude:
Two psychologists, Dr. Robert A. Emmons of the University of California, Davis, and Dr. Michael E. McCullough of the University of Miami, have done much of the research on gratitude. In one study, they asked all participants to write a few sentences each week, focusing on particular topics.
One group wrote about things they were grateful for that had occurred during the week. A second group wrote about daily irritations or things that had displeased them, and the third wrote about events that had affected them (with no emphasis on them being positive or negative). After 10 weeks, those who wrote about gratitude were more optimistic and felt better about their lives. Surprisingly, they also exercised more and had fewer visits to physicians than those who focused on sources of aggravation.
Ways to cultivate gratitude:
Gratitude is a way for you to appreciate what you have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make you happier, or thinking you can't feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps you refocus on what you have instead of what you lack. And, although it may feel contrived at first, this mental state grows stronger with use and practice.
Try waking up and writing down 5 things you are thankful for over the next 21 days.
It could be the biggest transformation for you yet.
