What’s so great about a massage, anyway? Quite a bit,
Some of the benefits of massage include: detoxification, a
decrease in stress, and a reduction in muscle pain or tension. Massage can also
create improvement in circulation, heightened mental clarity, and increased
flexibility. Because the process of massage encourages endorphin release
(sometimes referred to as “endogenous morphine”), you often experience a
feeling of overall well-being. It can also produce new, healthy cells and can
even reduce the appearance of cellulite.
According to the Hypnosis Motivation Institute,
approximately 25% of the population is suggestible to us at any given time,
based on a number of factors. One person in that 25% is you. That’s right, you’re
suggestible to yourself.
What this means is that what you tell yourself is more
likely to be taken in as truth. Therefore, it’s very important to be careful
how you talk to yourself.
If you know someone, for example, who says something like, “Flu
season is coming. Every year I get sick,” chances are you also know someone who
gets sick every year.
