A good description of our modern world could be as follows: The world in which humanity has grown exponentially in population as well as in technology and information. The beginning of the industrial revolution until now (present time).
This time in our history is fast paced, global, and almost futuristic. These 3 distinct features are exciting and awe inspiring but they can also be frightening and overwhelming. It has now been 260 years since the start of the industrial revolution. A rapid 260 year growth period that, in a way, human consciousness as well as human bodies are constantly adjusting to.
Climate crises and health crises to name a few are constantly invading our news feeds everyday. Each and every decision and moment on every level in our world is connected through the actions of every individual. Honing in and being able to focus on one’s health is becoming more and more of a mainstream potential paradigm shift.
Everyday new information and science comes out about health crazes and the best ways to be the most healthy. Really when it comes down to it, falling back on age old health wisdom is what keeps us in tact, along with the one size does not fit all approach. Everyone is different. Everyone’s health and priorities are different as well. One thing to consider though are some of those age old health practices that humans have been doing for thousands of years that have consistently produced good results. Massage happens to be one of them.
Sure you can buy an electric massage chair, or maybe even a massage gun or some other fancy device, but having a professional providing healing vibrating touch is unmatched. Implementing professional massage sessions into our health and self care routines is more important than ever before in the history of being human. Human touch from another stranger may seem weird but the space is protected under a professional lens. Not only that but healing human touch almost has an ancient tribal communal feel to it. It is like long ago when coming back to the community after a long campaign while at war or while hunting to be able to receive a healing massage to restore the mind and body for the next bout. This can be directly related to receiving a massage after a long day at work at our modern world job. Coming to the healer at the end of a long day at the office to restore the mind and body. Also reseting the nervous system while indirectly giving the recipient a better appreciation for life as well blossoming into newer more transformative perspectives.
We need massage more than ever now in our world. For people to be able to receive healing touch from other people. People feeling safe enough to enter in that space with someone else will not only help individuals grow and be able to relax more but also for the world as a whole to begin to grow, relax, and heal.
