Why A Massage Can Be More Than Just A Massage
Why a massage can relax the body and the mind.

Most people think of a massage as something to look forward to. For some, however, there is something special and transcendent about it. Not only are their bodies relaxed but they can also find their mind going to new and interesting places. Some find mental planes of relaxation and calm where others will lose themselves in the pleasure.
There is no surprise that there is a level of mysticism to massage. It has been practiced for thousands of years and can focus on the activation of certain pressure points. Pressure points that have been attributed to chakras and other pursuits such as acupuncture. With this in mind, some believe that a massage can influence the very energy that constitutes our aura or soul.
To what extent these claims are true is up for debate, but what is true is that people can truly have moments of inner discovery during a massage. By focusing on the body, some are able to escape the limitations of the mind. Yes, a massage also feels good but in today’s world when so many have a disconnect between what their body wants and what they think they are, being able to experience a flash moment of true perception can feel like the eye of the storm. A moment of clarity in an otherwise life consumed of fast food eating and spending time on the couch. Some people have even been spurred on by a massage to be motivated to spend more time exercising or eating better, or cutting down on alcohol.
People who have a massage are more likely to be calmer, more relaxed and in tune with their own body than those who do not. To know how much a massage can mean to someone we need not look further than how many people work in the trade and how it is a must do at the beach or at a spa for some. It is considered a real treat for many and when it is something that feels good but is also good for us, even on a level that many don’t consider, it is little surprise.
