This is going to kind of sound like a no-brainer. I know.
But: The most important thing you can do for your overall health is to get enough sleep!
Not massage. Not Reiki. Not exercising or eating healthy food (although, obviously, you should do those things on a regular basis).
It’s sleep. It really is.
This is well-documented in science, and also in popular culture and literature. Everything hits the fan in “MacBeth” after he “murders sleep,” right? Think about how you feel when you go through periods where you don’t sleep well, and think about how you feel when your sleep cycles are more normal and you’re getting a proper amount of rest.
Massage and Reiki help you access your parasympathetic nervous system — “rest and digest,” as opposed to “fight or flight” — but so does sleep. You need restful time to help your heart rate drop, to let your brain conserve energy, and to let your digestive system work better.
When you come for a massage or Reiki session, let me know if you’ve been having trouble sleeping. We can set this as part of your intention for a Reiki session. Therapeutic relaxing massage can cause you to go to sleep during the session. I also know some reflexology techniques to help promote a good night’s sleep.
As always, I offer free consultations for any of my services, so call or text me at 720-432-8664 or email email@example.com to set yours up.
Be well, healthy and whole,
