As healthcare providers we define pain as how our clients can describe it to us. Pain, besides being unpleasant, horrible and excruciating in some cases, is actually a blessing. This does not mean at all that one should suffer and wait for the pain to miraculously go away. It is a blessing because through pain your body can talk to you, can draw your attention to something not right.
For example, often we get that burning pain in between the shoulder blades, this is a way your body tells you to do something about it to either take a break, keep an eye on your posture, adjust your seat and reduce the time in front of your computer or just have a massage, which is most fun of all.
But, of course, life gets busy – mortgage, chores and bills and a lot of other things get in the way. Personally, I find that the most difficult thing is to pick up the phone and make the appointment, once that is done you are mentally committed and look forward to a nice soothing massage. Be it half hour or one hour treatment, it will be your time, the escape where you’ll find peace and tranquility. As you know, the body heals at night or in a state of deep relaxation, so once you reach that homeostasis, your mind will focus on fixing those sore and overworked muscles. Massage will help flush the lactic acid and repair debris from the injured site and leave you in a nice, fresh and rejuvenated state of mind.
So, listen to your body and give us a call, don’t let the pain ruin your day.
