Hear this. Massage treatments are essential for total mind and body health. I know this for a fact, due to my own recent experience. After experiencing terrible headaches, nausea and dizziness for a few months, I was on a mission to discover the root cause.
The pain was so bad at times that it affected my day-to-day life and the people around me. I tried my best to live my life as normal as possible, so I medicated to help suppress my symptoms, and that in turn made my condition worse. I literally thought I must be suffering from something more serious like a brain tumor, because my pain wasn’t going away.
Cat-Scan, MRI and a multitude of blood tests and countless doctor appointments and ER visits later, it was discovered that what I’d been suffering from is tension headaches. It’s amazing what stress can do to our bodies, and it totally made sense. For months I had been taking care of everybody else, all while neglecting my own needs.

After weeks of physical therapy and therapeutic massage treatments, I have been feeling much better. I try not to think about how my dollars spent seeing specialists could have been better used on massage treatments. Massage essential part of maintaining our bodies, just as important as keeping up with our doctor appointments.
So if you have stress in your life – and who doesn’t? Make sure you work massage into your routine. Treating your body well shouldn’t be a luxury. I have committed to getting regular massages, because I don’t want to experience what I went through again.
How often do you get massage treatments?
