The Let’s Hike Blog editorial board would like to take this unique opportunity to encourage its vast and loyal readership to visit a massage therapist Murray after your next hike. We all know how sore your leg muscles and your body in general can be after a long and vigorous hike. This is especially true when hiking up and down a mountain because this employs muscle groups that are not normally used in every day life (unless you live in San Francisco). Getting a massage after a hike is a great method to loosen muscles that were made tight through hiking.
RELAX WITH A MASSAGE THERAPIST MURRAY
Not only are massages effective for loosening tight muscles but massages are also effective for over all relaxation in general. After a massage most people report feeling very relaxed for hours and days afterwards. There is something about letting down your defenses and allowing yourself to be vulnerable to the touch of the masseuse. When a person allows himself to be vulnerable and then emerges on the other side unscathed he develops a trust in the world. This trust allows him to let his guard down and to abide in a relaxed state during the course of his every day life.
Stress is a toxic factor of modern life. Stress can lead to disease and other health problems. As such, anything that a person can do to reduce stress levels will have a net positive effect on a person’s life. This is not only true vis a vis physical health. This is also true for mental health as well. Actually, physical health and mental health are intimately related and both depend upon and impact the other on a continuous basis. For this reason improving the one will also improve the other. By contrast, weakening or damaging the one will weaken or damage the other as well.
