One massage later..

It's been a long week.

So I decided to visit my favorite Holistic Place and let the little Chinese Acupressure people do their thing. After taking a beating... my body did something weird. Like.. I don't know how to say this.. but it made me sick to my stomach.

But I think it was a good thing.

For me, it's as if I was holding toxins in - and my body just flushed them out. Then I felt super dehydrated. So right now I am just guzzling tons of water.

I did feel loose.. now I feel tight again. I think it is just my body trying it's best to fight the relaxation. However, I have to tell you - the whole purging thing (physically) was interesting. My massage therapist said, "You are too tense."

Remember, only 2 weeks ago I had a massage. And just last night I took a muscle relaxer.


Our bodies are super freaking smart. If we would only listen to them - they speak loud and clear.

I hear you...

I hear you.

Ah, one of the first things my massage therapist reminds me to do is to drink, drink, drink (water) when I'm done with the massage. And she has also told me on occasion (it might be when it's a deep tissue massage) that I shouldn't be surprised if I do get a bit nauseous or headachey. And have you ever experienced the sinuses opening up during your massage?? Waterworks!
Yes, our bodies are super smart. They are like a ship carrying the cargo of our lives. And it's up to us to keep that cargo balanced.
Be well, my friend. Balance that cargo over this weekend!

I feel like I haven't been to your blog in FOREVER. I'm finding it hard to keep up with all my blog reading. But I still care! I swear :-)

I've got a lot of reading to do.
