What is massage good for? Well, since you asked me I'll give you my version. People that get massage know a great way to relax and THAT is it's best purpose. I'm not sure it gets rid of "knots"; I don't really know what a knot is and I'm not sure I've ever touched one in treating. I think it makes people smarter in that they become aware of their physical selves. They find places that are tight and painful during a treatment that are nowhere near their primary complaint for coming in. I think people come a lot closer to connecting their mind, body, and spirit by getting treated somewhat regularly. And I think that if they truly want to feel better more often they'll learn to move properly, often and with more skill. I think it makes one aware they don't have to accept the typical aches and pains of ageing and that they can continually improve in some way their entire lives. If you're reading this all the way through I hope you're tracking with me in this. Getter older, better is a great way to live:)

So anyone that's seen things I've reposted on my Facebook page knows that I think movement is incredibly important. To not move brings on the stereotypes of ageing-stooped posture, aches and pains of inactivity and so on. But I have also always believed that people need to be as strong as possible, especially as they age. I got my key card today so I'll be back in a commercial gym, probably a little nicer than I would generally go to, but it's a nice perk of work. So be strong to be useful and all that. I think it lines up with what I believe about my life, my job and learning as I get older. Maybe it's helpful for you as well.
