When the team at the Burke Williams Spa reached out and asked if I wanted to try their Ananda massage treatment focused on channeling energy to heal the body and mind, it could not have been better timing. Why?
Over the past few years, I’ve realized that the list of demands I could take care of in a day is just going to continue growing, all the time. I’ve learned that at a certain point, it’s up to me to put a boundaries on what I can do in a day, and to decide when I will block time for self care. In practice, this can be exceedingly difficult and I have to admit that I need help with it. As a result, I’ve become fascinated with restorative practices that focus on stress relief to balance the mind and body. Whether that be massage, yoga, or meditation I’m finally starting to truly appreciate the value of these well-touted practices.
