7 tips to Quiet Your Mind to get the most from your massage.
It’s hard enough to find time for self care. When you get it, make the most of it, here is how.
Control sound- our therapist will bring soft music, but we can’t control your kids or your dog. So booking when your kids are out, at school, or in bed is a good trick. Where is your pet the quietest, in the kennel, basement or sitting on the floor where he can see you? A little prep can make a big difference.
Be in a dark place- for the first part of the massage you will be face down and thats great, however about 2/3’s of the way through when you turn over you want to stay in a place of Zen. Dark is good.
Are you worried about things? 15 min before we come spend 5-10 min and write it all down, this assures your subconscious mind it is taken care of and it can let those worries go.
Complicated problem? Write it down too- and then ask your subconscious to find an elegant and easy solution. Don’t think about it and just relax, you will be amazed how often this works and a solution appears like magic, maybe not during your massage but within a day or two a solution is so obvious and fully formed that you can’t believe you had a problem to begin with.
Count your blessings- I do this on nights that sleep is elusive, starting with A list everything and everyone you are grateful for.
Try a meditation or guided imagery instead of music- I usually do this and love it.
