Life can be hard on your body, and you may find yourself feeling tight and sore after long hours in the office or behind the wheel of your car. There are some red flags to watch out for that mean it’s simply time to get a massage. After all, you work hard, so you deserve it!
1. YOUR SHOULDERS ARE EXTREMELY TIGHT
Have you ever experienced the sensation of aching shoulders? Maybe you try and roll them back, and it hurts a lot. That means it’s time to go and see a professional.
If you’ve been pounding away at the keyboard for hours on end or commuting to your job each and every day, a little bit of me-time might just be in order!
2. IT’S BEEN YEARS SINCE YOUR LAST MASSAGE
We get it. You work hard, and sometimes life gets in the way of self-care practices such as getting yourself a massage, but here’s the thing: The act relieves stress and eases tension. Some research even indicates that having someone else massage your beautiful body aids in balancing your hormones. You deserve to lay down and relax as someone’s fingers caress your body and take out all of those stubborn knots that likely formed while you were tackling your to-do list.
3. YOU’RE REALLY STRESSED
We’ve all been there: Your family members are always calling your name, and you’re overwhelmed every day when it comes to packing lunches, perhaps taking your kids back and forth from school, and somehow still managing to show up for work and achieve your professional goals while functioning on little to no sleep!
Life can be exhausting, so, if you’re burning the candle at both ends, it could be time to give yourself a break and schedule a massage to rejuvenate your body and your mind. Doing so will likely lead to higher productivity levels in the long run: allowing yourself to relax almost always does.
While some say that massages are a form of indulgence, we believe they should be part of everyone’s self-care regimen whenever possible. We recommend getting one every week to every month, depending on your budget.treat yourself - Shop changes gift card specials
