This is me looking very professional as a Massage Therapist
One thing I know is true from over 35 years as a Massage Therapist, inactivity causes pain.
That’s one thing I’ve learned from my clients and their bodies. If you aren’t using your muscles, you may feel chronic pain in your body. Usually it’s the people who haven’t been moving their bodies who have the most chronic pain.
Yes, it’s my own qualitative study but the results were replicated over and over again. Inactivity causes pain.
I wrote this after the first month of being in lockdown due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.
I haven’t massaged any BODY in over a month! It feels like my HANDS are getting out of shape! It’s true, while I’m still getting my exercise, it feels like my HANDS are getting out of shape!
There is something to be said about INACTIVITY–especially for your hands if you use them as a profession! Thankfully, I can still get out and practice yoga, walk all over the place, and ride my bike so my body feels good, it’s just my hands that don’t!
I suppose now would be the time to start squeezing that flexible ball designed for such things. I’ve never used it since my hands are usually too busy!
The moral of the story is to pay attention to your body. Give it what it needs and it needs movement and activity! If you’re not getting it, you will feel the repercussions–even if it is just your hands!!!
Oh I know it takes a little something extra for some to get out there and move but PLEASE move your body in one way or another, you will be glad you did!!! Of course, there are lots of on-line opportunities to exercise so please take care of you and honor your body, it needs you!!!
I can help you here online. I love teaching people how to create a home practice in yoga, stability ball workouts, meditation and self talk reprogramming. Your first session is complimentary.
