Body Sense massage, bodywork & healthy living How often do you feel it is necessary to receive massage to reap its long-term health benefits?* There's something I've wanted to tell you, so let's just get it out of the way: get a massage in the next year. There. I said it. I feel better. I could write this letter to you—the readers—with the obligatory New Year's resolution plea. But instead of rattling off an impossible-to-accomplish to-do list for the upcoming year, I want you to know that I'm also a realist. Stats show that of the 45 percent of us who make a New Year's resolution (lose weight, get organized, spend less/save more, etc.), only 8 percent will stay the course. This number is most likely so low because we've set ourselves up to fail from the get-go. Too lofty a goal. Too nondescript to pin down. A few years ago, I made a resolution to stop drinking soda for an entire year. I accomplished the feat, but it was tough, tough, tough. So, that's why I'm asking you to put one very doable thing on your resolution list this year: get a massage. You already know about its myriad health benefits. Relaxation, check. Pain management, check. All-around awesomeness, check. Your practitioner and that oh-so-wonderful feeling await your phone call or online booking. Happy New Year! Need to find a practitioner?
