If you have been following my blog, you might be wondering, why the heck is this Massage Therapist telling me about clean eating and my health. I will explain.
I have been in the body business for well over 30 years now. When I started out, my main focus was providing stress and pain relief for my clients. Over time, as I treated clients over and over again, it became a priority of mine to try to puzzle out why these good people kept getting recurring injuries and ailments. Don’t get me wrong, I was happy to have them as clients, and to be able to help relieve their pain, but I would much rather have been able to see them on when they weren’t in so much pain.
Pain wears a person down. It makes them age faster and it impairs their mental faculties because they expend so much energy just trying to live their lives while being in severe pain. I began studying Pilates because I learned when we strengthen our core and work from our core, our bodies are less susceptible to injury. I began to study QiGong and Tai Chi. With their gentle, repetitive motions, they still exercise all of our muscles, but they allow us to bring good energy back into our bodies.
Yoga shows us how to breathe and stretch our bodies. Walks in the park allow us to feel the fresh air on our face, to see the beauty in nature, and perhaps we get to stop and chat with a friend, pet a sweet dog, or just reconnect with friends along the way.
Massage therapy can help to relieve pain and stress. It’s always good for us. Preventing injuries through strengthening our core and our muscles is good for us. Eating clean, nutritious foods is good for us. When I massage clients who are in pain, I often break up pockets of toxins that get clogged in their bodies. Those toxins are created by poor diet, stress, and injury. Food, exercise, water and mind-body awareness, they all work together to either make us ill or make us better. Which one would you choose?

Clean eating, exercise massage therapy all work in concert to keep us living a better life. That’s why a massage therapist is posting about clean eating…
