It’s no secret that getting a massage feels amazing. You will begin to feel better before the therapist even enters the room. Your nerves start to unwind just by being in a dark, quiet space surrounded by calming music and soothing scents. The warm sheets feel smooth on your skin. And once your massage begins, all that tension and stress you carry begins to be released through the power of touch. As you settle onto the massage table, remaining still, you can focus on the rhythm of your own breath, quieting your mind and letting your thoughts pass by. You’re truly engaging in the moment — otherwise known as mindfulness.
