Ways to De-Stress: Massage

When you're stressed, try getting a massage to feel more relaxed. This suggestion might seem obvious, but when my mind and body are tense I don't automatically remember that I would feel much better after a massage.

Massages are a great way to de-stress because they can reduce pain and muscle tension, which helps relax our minds too. Massage therapy can also improve circulation, lower blood pressure, rehabilitate after injury, and promote easier breathing. One aspect I really enjoy is that it gives me a deeper feeling of connection to the body.

To start, you can ask a friend to give you helping hand or learn self-massage, for example with a foam roller or massage stick. You can also check out one of the many local centers for in Geneva which include Shiatsu, Swedish and Thai massage (my favorite). They can be worth the occasional indulgence!
