There are a number of health benefits of massage that can really help improve the lives of busy mom’s (and DADS)! Life is chaotic, especially around the holidays. We bake, we shop, we chaperone classroom parties. We work hard to pad the budget for Christmas gifts and then come home to cook dinner and supervise homework hour. When, in our busy schedule, do we take care of US? I don’t know about you, but I find that my own needs are pushed far down the list of things that get taken care of.

  1. I know massage is so, so good for you, especially if you are under a lot of stress or suffering from anxiety or depression. Massage is a great way to relax. Have a great week!
  2. I have never had a "professional" massage except for mini massages at conferences and the like. Maybe it is something I need to look into.....
  3. I could use a massage right now. I would love to relax and have my worries rubbed away with a good massage.
  4. I recently experienced a personal massage and was rather uncomfortable with someone touching my face, etc. I just felt out of sorts. You have a totally different experience and your health benefits of massage make me want to try it again and get over myself. LOL
    • My first massage I was definitely nervous but I chose a female massage therapist instead (the first had been a guy and I felt awkward). I kept going to the same person for years and was completely comfortable after only a few sessions. Maybe give it a try for a few months in a row and see how you feel!
  5. I love massages! A dear friend of mine is a massage therapist and she makes me feel very comfortable. If I was rich I'd get a massage every week!
  6. I really need to go in to get a massage. I had one a while back and got all bruised up. Not sure if she didn't know what she was doing or what. But I am so tense, it would be nice to relax.
