You don’t have time. You don’t have the money. You shouldn’t splurge. Recognize this voice? It tries to convince you that massage is a frivolous indulgence. And it usually wins. It has conquered me once or twice, or a thousand times. But this year, I chose not to listen. I found an online deal that was too hard to pass up – and, for once, I didn’t say no! I purchased 12 massages, one per month. Why? Because I deserve it.
Massage inspires those of us for whom “touch” is a primary language. It detoxifies, rejuvenates, and refreshes the body – the ultimate act of self-care. Try your own online deal, visit a day spa, spend an hour in the massage chair at the mall, or bribe your child for a few minutes of soft, loving pressure on your shoulders. Think about how you can incorporate massage into your life. You deserve it.
