Bodywork is SO important. For ages we’ve used hands-on manipulation to treat illness and pain. Then why do so few regularly incorporate it into their self-care? Because it’s in our culture. We are used to it– to working hard, giving 110%, “dealing with” some level of discomfort constantly, never having time for ourselves, always slave to the to-do list… self-care-? What’s that? Where’s that on our to-do lists?
Sadly, most people still see massage and many kinds of mind-body-therapies as a “luxury” when it is clearly so much more.
