Can Aging Be Reversed With Massage Therapy?

Category: Health

What if I told you I’ve discovered the fountain of youth and all you have to do is pony up $39.99 and you can have a jar of it to drink? You wouldn’t fall for that obvious line of bull or would you? Well, I’ve got news for you. Millions of people do every year! You see, 99% of people are like goldfish. Not that they have fins and swim around in a fish tank. But because goldfish have an attention span of only 3 seconds! That’s right, only 3 measly seconds!

That means goldfish are slow learners. After all, what can they possibly learn in 3 seconds? So, if they eat a little green worm that makes them sick, guess what they’ll do 5 minutes later? You guessed it. They eat another little green worm and get sick again. So what happens after they give that guy their $39.99 for that “fountain of youth in a jar” and it doesn’t work? They forget all about the first guy in 3 seconds (just like a goldfish) and give another $39.99 to someone else claiming the same thing!

So what does all this have to do with you? Well, even though there is no “fountain of youth in a jar,” there are 3 things that can make you live up to 20% longer and look 20 years younger! The first is to have a positive mental attitude. That’s right, positive thinking actually makes you live longer. In fact, a study done at the Mayo Clinic revealed that optimists lived 20% longer than pessimists! Imagine that. Looking on the bright side and cracking a smile every once in a while may put 10 or 15 years on your life. There’s another interesting side note to optimists. They have more friends!

The second is to get exercise and get massage. Everyone’s always yapping about how good exercise and massage therapy in San Diego is. You’ll slave away in the gym. Run around that stupid track, and, maybe, just maybe, you’ll live an extra year. A groundbreaking study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1994, showed that the bodies of 40 postmenopausal women became 15 to 20 years more youthful after the women lifted weights twice a week for a year! Do you understand what that means? Lifting weights twice a week is hardly slaving away in the gym. That’s something anyone can do to look 15-20 years younger. I know it’s not quite as intriguing as the “fountain of youth in a jar,” and may take a little more time, but it really works.

The third is to keep your stress levels down and keep your body healthy with massage therapy. Massage spa services are great for reducing muscle spasms, eliminating pain, improving posture and reducing stress. Great massage therapy can be found at Happy Head Foot Reflexology and Massage in San Diego. So now you have a number of ways to really drink from the fountain of youth! Maintaining a positive mental attitude, exercising, and eating well can keep you happy and healthy as you become older and wiser! And hopefully you will enjoy the process of growing older with all life has to offer!
