The Importance of Self-Care –
Getting the Most Out of ‘Me Time’!
In today’s modern world, we are constantly connected. Like nodes on a spider’s web, we are linked to people, responsibilities, significant others, chores, bills – you name it. There’s no lack of duties in the modern era, and no lack of ways to be asked to perform them.
An after-hours work email reminding you of a deadline, a PTA meeting, or a simple notification that car insurance is due can make it immensely overwhelming. The persistent mental strain of ticking boxes can feel physically exhausting, so it’s important to remember to take some time out for self-care.
At Aquarius Wellness, we recognize this as part of the mind-body connection, a physical-psychological feedback loop that must be kept in balance to benefit you and all your connections.
If you’ve been feeling more than frazzled lately, it’s likely because all of this stress has piled up over time without you being fully aware of it. Our massage therapists are experts in de-stressing and guiding our clients into a special moment of peace where all these cares melt away.
Are You Stressed?
It may sound strange, but you may not even know you’re stressed. Have you been feeling aches and pains in areas of your body you hadn’t felt previously? Maybe you are feeling cramps in your legs. Perhaps your back or shoulders have become repositories of the negative emotions you’ve been carrying, and you’re noticing the manifestations of what has been building up over time.
Part of the importance of self-care is remembering that this is all preventable with a bit of ‘Me Time’. It’s okay to take time out and admit that you’re stressed. Processes of rebalancing the mind and body are entirely normal, even necessary. Our natural approach to healing is meant to leave your body energized and your soul restored.
Relieve Stress in a Healthy Way
Taking care of yourself shouldn’t be last on your To-Do list . In an ideal world it would be first, but that’s not always possible. Our natural and nurturing methods of stress relief can keep you feeling like your true self by keeping those mind-body connections open and the energies effortlessly flowing between the two.
If you’ve noticed you’ve been sleeping too much recently or drinking more than usual, you may be subconsciously trying to relieve stress unhealthily. Perhaps you’ve gained a little weight, or you haven’t been eating enough. These are all signs of someone whose mind-body connection is out of balance.
The good news is that this balance can be restored in a completely pure and healthy way, it just takes a little time to remember the importance of self-care, and perhaps a bit of help from our talented and caring therapists at Aquarius Wellness!
How Massage Can Contribute to Proper Self-Care
Massage has been used for centuries for various health benefits, from relaxation, to reduced tension and improved circulation. According to the Mayo Clinic, it can even improve immune function.
At Aquarius Wellness, we offer an array of different massage and self-care options to suit any situation. Our signature massage is well-known for inducing deep states of calm and serenity. Our aromatherapy sessions will gently lull you into tranquil meadows of soothing aromas as stiffness and strain are drained from your body.
Either choice is guided by one of our masterful massage therapists and will result in a re-centering of mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to confront the world anew.
Our philosophy revolves around holistic, seamless, total care and comfort for all the senses, so that each of our clients leaves feeling refreshed and renewed, having just experienced a total mind-body reset! Taking care of yourself involves much more than just diet and exercise, it includes keeping your mind and body in proper alignment and ensuring you’ve spent sufficient time focused on yourself and recharging your batteries.
We know how hard it is to pencil in those precious moments of ‘Me Time’, but we also know how necessary they are to your overall quality of life. Neglecting yourself ends up throwing your mind and body out of whack, and without some remedy the stress will continue to build.
If you’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed, our experienced massage therapists are here to help. With revitalizing essential oils, aromas to awaken the senses, and practiced hands to work out kinks from head to toe, let us help restore serenity in your life.
