Be Your Best It's taken me a few decades, but I've finally learned that taking care of myself is the best way to ensure I can take care of others. Striving to be at my best feels great, too! Those of us at Body Sense know that massage therapy is a wonderful way to meet our goals of living holistically. We have Body Sense Editor-in-Chief Leslie A. Young the advantage of hearing story after story about the healing, nurturing benefits of massage therapy and bodywork. These vignettes star a broad array of clients—from the tiniest to the aging, and the super-fit to the fragile. Whether individuals suffer from chronic pain, weekendwarrior stiffness, low self-esteem, or low-back pain, we learn how the myriad modalities help soothe bodies, minds, and spirits. So whether you consider your massage sessions pathways to relaxation and restoration, pain relievers for muscle soreness, or antidotes for stress relief, know that you're one of millions of Americans who know the importance of integrating healthy touch into your lifestyle. Let your massage therapist be your guide. Feel free to ask about your practitioner's skill set and the many ways he or she can help address your questions or concerns. We want you to be your best, and so does your therapist.
