The Power of Love

The Beatles told us “All you need is love”.

Love is as critical for your mind and body as oxygen. It’s not negotiable. The more connected you are, the healthier you will be both physically and emotionally. The less connected you are, the more you are at risk.

It is also true that the less love you have, the more depression you are likely to experience in your life. Love is probably the best antidepressant there is because one of the most common sources of depression is feeling unloved. Most depressed people don’t love themselves and they do not feel loved by others. They also are very self-focused, making them less attractive to others and depriving them of opportunities to learn the skills of love. (From Psychology Today web site.)

Where does massage therapy come into play in this talk of love?  Massage therapy can help you to connect with yourself and love yourself.  Loving yourself is the first step in finding love of the romantic type or experiencing more love in all of your relationships. 

Massage releases those wonderful endorphins that run through your blood and uplift your spirit, making you feel the joy we were born to feel.  The skilled therapist is a channel of love, and the touch of the therapist’s hands on your body fills your energy field with love that you cannot help but respond to, even if only on a subconscious level.  It can be one of many things you can do to start loving yourself more:  Find your joy and do what makes you happy, eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep.  But, if you don’t, forgive yourself and try again!  When you love yourself, your happiness shines through, and others are drawn to you.  None of us are perfect, but we should love ourselves for the wonderful attributes we do have.
