As we age or experience an injury within our muscle or joints, the body stores that physical stress deep inside. If those injuries aren’t addressed right away, over time they will get worse and could result in a larger, much more painful issue. The same goes for our emotional health. When we experience trauma, our body holds on to those emotions, tucking them away deep in our tissues.
As your massage therapist works on your muscles and penetrates deep into your soft tissue, oxygen and nutrients rush through your cells, pushing out toxins and detoxifying those areas. This can unlock emotional energy stuck in the tissue triggering you to feel an intense rush of emotions. Embracing this release and allowing your body to let go of this energy will help your body find its way back to the healthy, balanced state it desires to be in. Allowing your mind to relax and free it’s self of the burden of negative feelings will give you a sense of rejuvenation and calming relaxation.
