Imagine a feeling of completely escaping to a calm and relaxing space. Whether it’s the gentle touch of healing hands or the rejuvenating manipulations to the body, a session here at Hand & Stone will leave you having a clear mind. In today’s lifestyles, we all seem to deal with too many minds going on.

In order to maintain good health and wellness, it is critical for us busy humans to experience time having ‘no minds.’ Recently, I enjoyed a wonderful day at the Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Sarasota, Florida and here is my experience review below.

Too Many Minds * Balance of the Mind

When I mention the term having too many minds, I am referring something that the infamous Bruce Lee said. It is referencing in part to his theory of the balance of the mind. Other thoughts from Bruce Lee include “Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless, like water. Now, you put water into a cup. It becomes the cup.”

He continues to explain the ‘be like water’ concept and be shapeless. Do not allow yourself to be trapped in a certain mindset. For example, think about the concept of pain. So many people deal with all levels of pain throughout their body. Think about pain in these terms: “Pain is weakness leaving your body,” Lee explains.

Overcome All The Stress from the Day

Open your mind and allow your body to be calm and relaxed. For me, when I receive a massage treatment or facial, it allows me to achieve ‘no minds’ by experiencing total relaxation, calmness, and an empty mind.

Our busy lifestyles forces us to carry far too many things and thoughts in our minds and our bodies. Did you know that people hold much of their stress and tension in the neck, shoulders and facial muscles? This is where a spa treatment can help alleviate muscle tension caused by mental and physical stress.

Stress can come from numerous aspects of daily life. These include activities such as exercising, working, managing multiple projects, raising children, and even driving your family around town to show them the sites. My family recently came to visit us, and we made sure to show them a fabulous time! (This is why I made an appointment at the Hands & Stone Spa.)

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Living a busy lifestyle can be exciting and thrilling. But it can also be detrimental to your general health if you do not incorporate wellness and balance into your life. This might entail making sure you get some down time. One of the ways you can ‘wind down’ is make an appointment to enjoy a relaxing and therapeutic massage or facial. The benefits that a massage can do to your overall health are endless. Here are a few benefits of a full body massage:

  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce muscle tension
  • Stimulate the lymphatic system
  • Reduce stress hormones
  • Relaxation
  • Improve skin tone
  • Improve joint mobility and flexibility
  • Improve recovery of soft tissue injuries

One huge advantage to receiving massage therapy on a regular basis is that it can help you sleep better as well. So, as you can see the benefits to your health are tremendous.

She welcomed me and explained the details about what the treatment will entail. I also mentioned to her that I had a headache that day. Her relaxing soothing technique around my face and skull definitely reduced some tension I was feeling.
