What’s the Key to Full Life?

What is the key to a full life? I’m biased, I’ll say massage is one. When I get up in the morning I write in my gratitude journal. It’s very simple. On each page of the journal are 10 blanks. There, I write 10 things for which I am thankful for daily. Sometimes it’s a conversation with a client on how pain might be a manifestation of some sort of trauma we have experienced but not dealt with. Sometimes I’m thankful for simply having the means to get a regular massage.

Usually with a new client, especially someone who has never had a massage (I know, right?) I explain to them this is their time. If they want to talk, it’s okay. They can engage me and of course, I’ll answer them. I also explain it’s completely okay to be silent and just have the quiet music playing int he background. I think silence makes some of us uncomfortable. But I also believe that silence and just being present and experiencing the moment is one of the keys to a full life.

Massage itself, with the ability for you to be in a totally safe room, trusting your massage therapist with your safety, is also a key. It’s important you have at least one, hopefully many, places you can go, feel relaxed, enjoy the benefits, and be complete. Massage is certainly a key component in having a well balanced mental and physical life. There’s no time like today to book your appointment and start your better life.
