10 Reasons Why You Need Massage


As human, we are all communicating with verbal language. Whenever we want to deliver an information, we speak it and through speaking we can understand each other. However, our body does not speak verbally. It delivers message through symptoms. We often don't pay attention to the symptoms and suddenly our body just drops because of excessive work. When we feel tired, our body tells us to have a break. Taking a nap may temporarily help to relax our body, but what about our soul? We need a total relaxation that releases more than just a physical tension. Massage is one of the most simple ways to chill our body and soul.
