Spring has sprung and at MassageBook, we’re ready to adjust our attitudes for the warmer weather. Here are five wellness quotes we love that will help you do just that!
- “Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being.” –J. Stanford
The most effective massage therapists know that though someone appears healthy from the outside, their insides can be harboring pain, aches and tension inside.
And that doesn’t begin to touch the emotional element. When we remind ourselves that wellness goes well beyond physical health, we are better able to help our clients holistically.
- “Health isn’t about being “perfect” with food or exercise or herbs. Health is about balancing those things with your desires. It’s about nourishing your spirit as well as your body.” ―Golda Poretsky
Often, we associate health with being very strict with diet and exercise. Although we need to be aware of what we put into our bodies and that we get enough exercise, that doesn’t mean we need to deny ourselves the occasional “not so healthy” pleasure – everything in balance.
Nourish your spirit with chocolate every now and then – it’s ok! And we’re glad to remind ourselves of this just before Easter desserts!
- “Shovel today’s challenges for your tomorrow’s freedom.”
―Aniekee Tochukwu Ezekiel
We love this quote because it reminds us that putting things off only delays our satisfaction and gratitude for life. Troubles can compound themselves and manifest in physically and emotionally debilitating ways.
Dealing with today’s challenges can help us live with clearer minds and hearts, which is essential for “tomorrow’s freedom.”
- “Healing is a transformation, not just a quick fix; a change from an inhibited or impaired state to one of greater health, integration and connection. What was damaged must be soothed, repaired, restored, and given new pathways in which to grow and flourish.” ―Sharon Weil
As massage therapists, we know that healing is a process that takes time. Many people believe that massage is a “splurge” or “luxury,” but we know that it should be treated as a part of a holistic wellness practice.
Massage relieves muscle tension, increases blood flow and betters sleep, among many other benefits. It is only with regular visits, however, that optimal results can be seen over time and across your life.
- “Change your focus,
give power to the positive
and starve the negative.
We reduce our inner wisdom
to think with logic that’s been
instilled in us whilst expecting
miraculous results. Retrain the core
issue and the pathway will build itself.”
We are often focused on what physically ails us. If you’re not feeling well—whether you have chronic back pain or headaches or stiff joints—you are unable to fully appreciate the blessings of life. In other words, the negative takes over.
But when we find physical balance, we change our focus to more positive parts of our lives.
