Keep on Bending it Like Beckham
Scar tissue; my old nemesis. If you play sport or enjoy an active lifestyle, you are likely to have built up some scar tissue over time.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve got quite a bit of it! Massage can help to reduce and break down this scar tissue, giving you better muscle flexibility and range of motion in the joints.
Fix Up, Look Sharp
Getting focused, being sharp… it’s all in your head, right? Well… not entirely. For me, focus begins in the body. A great massage drains way all those external stresses and strains and gets me in the right place to achieve focus and mental sharpness.
An active lifestyle is about more than just physical health and strength; it is about determination and discipline. It’s about knowing yourself well. The right massage can help you achieve this and create overall wellbeing.
Being an All-round Super Hero. A Routine for Developing Physical and Psychological Wellbeing.
A Little note from Sarah.
It took me awhile to get there, but I finally learned to embrace ‘me’. That’s right; to make time for me to be… well… me, and to indulge my physical and emotional wellbeing.
Living in Thailand, (check that box!) I’ve learned so much since arriving here. Having Thai, deep tissue and trigger massage on a regular basis, helps me to keep my body keenly honed and my mind calm, relaxed, but alert. It also helps avoid injuries, whether they be sport and fitness related. Or all too often for me, simply sitting at my desk for too damn long! (I need to work on checking this box)
Inactivity and sitting in the same position plays havoc with my back, neck, shoulders as well as my mouse arm. Not to mention my mouse hand. Speaking of which, this is one of my FAVOURITE areas to massaged, ears too, but that’s for another time.
Aligning my body and mind is such an important part of my massage routine. I try to get 1.5 and if time permits, 2 hours in every week. I am blessed with massage ‘shops’ galore on my doorstep, and they are super cheap. Over in Blighty, I get it’s not quite the same. That said, an hour once a month is better than zero a month. Trust me, it won’t be long until you start noticing the benefits of how massage impacts on your overall wellbeing. Before long, it will be on auto-reschedule in your calendar.
The downside to such a variety of choice is a high standard of training isn’t guaranteed. This is so important as having an unskilled therapist is possibly worse than no massage at all.
