Massage Therapy

Massage relaxes the mind, body and spirit. A 15 minute Hellerwork self massage will ease tightness in the muscles that are stressed when you are anxious.

A full body massage from a trained professional is one of the best ways to relax and let go of stress and tension.

You can give yourself a very soothing ayurvedic oil massage at home in just a few minutes. 

  1. Slightly warm up 2 or 3 ounces of oil (sesame, sunflower, or coconut oil are good). Apply the oil to your entire body. 

  2. Rub some oil into your scalp with your palms. 

  3. Rub across your forehead and along your cheek bones. 

  4. Rub along the long bones of your body (arms. legs), and use a circular motion on elbows, knees, and shoulders. 

  5. Rub your chest and abdomen and as far around on your back as you can reach. (Use the flat of your palms; kneading the muscles is not essential.)

  6. Massage your feet, especially the soles. 

  7. Follow with a hot bath or shower. 

If you don't have time for the entire massage, rub a little oil into your scalp and the soles of your feet.
