Do you feel like you’re being pulled in every direction? Spread too thin? Are you ineffective at work and grumpy and tired at home? It sounds like you are in the same boat with thousands of other stay home mothers or working mothers in this country. Many moms feel like they must “do it all” at work and at home in order to be a successful career woman and a great Supermom. Sooner or later, these super-career-soccer-moms get burned out. A massage is a great way to relieve some stress and regain your focus. Here are five reasons that working moms need a knead.
1. MASSAGE means “ME” TIME
It is important when you’re being pulled in all directions and you’re constantly focusing on everyone else, to spend a little bit of time each day for some “me” time.
2. MASSAGE RELIEVES STRESS
A massage is a proven way to reduce or remove stress. Stress can cause tension in muscles, especially the muscles around the shoulders, neck, arms, and face that can cause headaches.
3.MASSAGE IMPROVES GENERAL HEALTH
Studies have shown that regular massages can help improve muscle function, recovery time, and circulation. All of these things are important for a working mom who is also trying to keep her body healthy with exercise and nutrition.
4.MASSAGE BOOST YOUR ENERGY
A massage can actually leave you feeling energized and revitalized. If you are having trouble keeping up at work or are fighting the “sleepies” every afternoon, the answer might just be a good massage to relieve energy-sapping tension and boost circulation.
5.MASSAGE IS AN INSTANT MOOD LIFTER
If you, like many moms, have a difficult time with your attitude when working all day, it might be an indication that you have excess stresses on your body and mind. By escaping into a massage for an hour once or twice a month, you will experience relaxation and rejuvenation that will allow you to learn how to center yourself and control your emotions in a calm and relaxed way.
