There is no doubt that receiving a massage is

good for your mind body and soul

. If it’s such an important part of living a healthy lifestyle, why don’t we all do it more often? Well, most of us think of massage as a treat, something that costs money and takes time. If you decide to go to a spa or visit a private massage therapist, this can be true. But the great thing is that massages can also be done at home, by friends and family, and it doesn’t have to take that too long. Just a 10 minute rub down on a specific area can help relieve stress, get blood flowing and leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated.

Next time you are feeling the need to relax and unwind, ask someone close to you to help you out. They will also get

plenty of benefits

from doing it, so don’t be afraid to ask! Make sure you are in a quiet setting, turn off all digital distractions, grab some soothing oil if necessary and tell the other person which area of your body is in need of some tender loving care.



1. SHOULDER


WHAT:

This is perhaps the most classic area in the body where people feel tension and a massage here can lead to stress relief and is a great way to relax the muscles.


HOW:

Start by placing your hands on the shoulders with the thumbs on the upper back and the four fingers just to the side of the collar bone. Make a circular motion with the entire hand and focus on making circles with the thumbs on either side of the backbone just below the collar line. For a deeper and more relaxing stroke, use both on hands on one shoulder at a time while maintaining the circular motion.
