April is National Stress Awareness month and with the public issue of both mental and physical health, this is a great time to make sure both your mind and body are in the right place. LaVida Massage is the perfect place to help you alleviate any stress that is clouding up your mind and creating tension and havoc on your body. I know before I worked at LaVida Massage, I didn’t really know what I could do or what benefits I would gain through regular stress management. But, LaVida Massage offers both therapeutic services and products to help you manage the hustle and bustle of the world around you.
Creating time for a massage from one of our Licensed Massage Therapists (LMT), once a month, will help alleviate stress-induced knots or tightness in your body. One of the benefits of going in for a routine massage is that the LMT will ask you which areas you would like to focus on each time. Personally, I like to communicate with the LMT when they find the tense muscles, to focus on those specific areas. Receiving a monthly massage has helped me, not only with physical stress but with mental stress also. Knowing that I have that monthly massage coming up gives me something to look forward to and I can plan my more physically strenuous activities around the time of my massage. If you are unsure about what type of massage is right for you be sure to communicate with your therapist during the massage to ensure you are receiving the appropriate amount of pressure.
For stress relief in between your monthly massage try one of our 100% Pure Essential Oils or essential oil blends to help eliminate stress on a daily basis. You can use these essential oils in a variety of ways. My favorite essential oil is pure Lemon Oil. It reminds me of a freshly cleaned room or a crisp, early summer day. Use them as a replacement for candles in an essential oil diffuser or add a couple of drops to a spray bottle with water and use them as a natural air freshener. A subtle and direct approach, my personal go-to at work, dab a little oil onto a microfiber towel and hold up to your nose to inhale. It allows me to take a step back from work, clear my mind, and not disturb anyone around me.
