I've been inspired to write this post because I've gotten some feedback from people that they "cannot afford me". What they are saying is "I will not spend $60.00 on myself to make myself feel better in my body." What happens when you don't feel good in your body? Pain. Chronic Pain. Stress. Chronic Stress. These things lead to dis-ease.
Now what is $60.00 to the average person?
What is $60.00 in medical/health expenses to the average person?
Yes. I believe what I do should be part of your health and wellness program. It is not comparable to a shopping trip or a night out with your friends. Massage therapy is preventative medicine. The massage work I do impacts your body on a cellular level, affecting all systems of the body. This is a highly valuable service that is definitely not offered in western healthcare or at your favorite store.
I have repeat clients whom visit me monthly for integrative therapeutic massage. The feedback I've been receiving is phenomenal. The general consensus is: Massage therapy vastly improves your mind, body, spirit experiences. People have reported that things that have bothered them for years are no longer happening and that their bodies have less aches and tension. There have also been mental, emotional, and spiritual breakthroughs. My approach to massage therapy makes my clients have a better sense of self awareness, more contentment, and less stress and pain overall.
If you are one of those people that cannot find a place in your budget for massage therapy, even though you obviously need it, you may want to give what I've written some more thought. Your body houses everything that makes it possible for you to do anything with your life in this world. Take care of your body- mind and spirit will be grateful and follow.
Be Well :-)
