7 tips for mentally letting go and enjoying your massage.
It is difficult to find time to fit self care into your life. When you get it, make the most of it, here is how.
Control sound- our therapist will bring soft music, but we can’t control your kids or your dog. Booking when your kids are out, at school, or in bed is a good trick. Go to the spot in your house where it is the quietest, Put some soft music on (we also usually bring some)
Be in a dark place- for the first part of the massage you will be face down and thats great, however about 2/3’s of the way through when you turn over you want to stay in a place of Zen. Dark is good.
Are you worried about things? 15 min before we come spend 5-10 min and write it all down, this assures your subconscious mind it is taken care of and it can let those worries go.
Complicated problem? Let them go, and ask your subconscious to find an elegant and easy solution. A solution often appears like magic, maybe not during your massage but within a day or two a solution is so obvious and fully formed that you can’t believe you had a problem to begin with.
Count your blessings- I do this on nights that sleep is elusive, starting with A list everything and everyone you are grateful for.
Try a meditation or guided imagery instead of music- I usually do this and love it.
