Mmmmm Is For Massage – Your Guide To Relaxation

After a long day at work, there is nothing more soothing than doing nothing for a few minutes. Of course, what we face when we open the front door is a house full of hungry kids, pets and partners! If you find it difficult to grab those few minutes to yourself, then why not make it your resolution to change things? Here are just some of the ways you can relax and unwind each day:

Massage Chair – According to, there are lots of different chairs on the market that provide a much-needed massage in the comfort of your own home. You can use them while you’re reading with the kids, watching the TV or catching up with your blog! Some are, of course, pretty pricey. Others are simply backed cushions you place on your regular chair. If you can’t get out of the house for a massage, then a massaging chair could be a great alternative.

Massage Therapies – There are dozens of different massage styles out there. If you can find the time each week for a regular appointment with your masseuse, then you could be on the way to a more relaxing lifestyle. Indian head massages, sports massages, Swedish massage – the list goes on! You and your partner could also take classes to learn how to do these things yourselves. It could become a regular thing you do for each other, like date night. Use essential oils to help you feel deeply relaxed and refreshed.

Yoga – It is possible to massage yourself with Yoga. There are several poses that could relieve tension in the neck, back and shoulders. Some say that Yoga can help massage your internal organs too. This might help relieve indigestion and other digestive disorders. Combined with special breathing techniques, Yoga can be ideal for helping you to relax. Best of all, it can boost your energy levels and focus too. There are plenty of online courses to get started. Why not book a weekly class as part of your ‘me’ time.

Bubbles – A bubble bath can be a wonderful way to relax and unwind after a tough day. Of course, if you have a jacuzzi bath it can be even better. Many jacuzzi baths have adjustable whirlpool jets that can be directed onto your achy areas. These can be ideal when you’ve been on your feet all day or overdone a workout. You can soak away all that tension and enjoy the scent of your candles too. Dim the lights, and enjoy a glass of something yummy.

Handheld – There are plenty of handheld or portable devices on the market that can target specific muscles in your body. Some are battery operated. They might add extra warmth and vibration to ease the tension in your muscle. Others are simple wooden roller balls that knead the area until you are soothed. They come as pillows, rollers, and even little mushroom shaped devices. If you have a bit more money, you could even buy an electric one that will heat up the area and may even prevent cellulite! How do you like to relax?
