What Are The Benefits Of A Mindful Massage

By Harold Cook

Our lives a busier today than they have ever been in the past. We are inundated with technology, demanding jobs, family obligations and the like. Is it any wonder that our minds are busy as well. It can be hard to stay in the present moment with so much worry and anxiety on our minds. This is how a mindful massage can help you to relax and bring you back to the present moment and declutter your mind.

Mindfulness is the new wave of thought going on in our world today. It is a method of meditation that causes its practitioners to remain in the present moment and thereby reconnecting the mind/body so that life is lived fully in the moment and without worry about the past or the future self. It is something that allows one to enjoy and experience the present part of their lives fully and completely.

The mind/body connection is important because you only have the present moment in which to live, but the mind travels to many different time periods all within a days time. This can create stress and anxiety in one's life and cause them to miss out on enjoying the life they have right now. A mindfulness massage can put you back in touch with the reality around you.

The massage therapist also lives in the moment with you and is practicing mindfulness while they are in session with you. It is something of the old saying practice what you preach and they do practice what they believe in. Their job is to keep you in the present moment too while they give you the massage by incorporating body scans and deep breathing and imagery to guide you through a mindfulness meditation.

Spas are quickly becoming a place where this technique is put into practice to improve the lives and health of their clients not just the physical but the mental aspects as well. This technique of mindfulness is also practiced in other fields such as psychology and medical practices. It is said to improve the overall well-being of the person who practices it.

It is known to reduce stress and tension in the body and to cause the mind to become calmer and so one can focus and concentrate better. It is also said to improve memory and other brain functions as well. While mindfulness seems to be an easy practice it is rather difficult to do and the mind will wander but you simply and gently bring it back to the present moment without any judgment or particular feelings about it.

It is good to combine mindfulness with massage and have someone who can guide you on this journey. It helps you to keep your focus on the present moment so that you can enjoy your massage and leave the spa or session feeling relaxed and refreshed and ready to take on life's many challenges.

Consider this technique as a way of getting back that edge you once had and to be able to focus your mind and live fully in the present moment without thinking about the past or the future. Think of how much energy you will free up and how your mind will react to these subtle changes. It can be life altering and empowering.
