Life moves by quickly and sometimes all you can do is just try to keep up. There are work, family, home, financial and other commitments we all have to meet. We all find times when we want life to slow down for a moment just so we can relax.

The struggle to keep up with everything takes its toll on the mind and body. Symptoms of stress include tense and stiff muscles, which leave you feeling uncomfortable. Exercise and sleep ease some symptoms of stress, but maybe you need another way to bring your body into better balance.

A massage may be the answer to bring relief to your aching muscles and body. The process increases and improves circulation and relaxes the muscles. It enables the body to release toxins from within muscles that cause stiffness and mild pain. Massage therapy works on all parts of the body, including the back, shoulders, neck, head, arms, hands, legs and feet.

When considering a massage, you want to choose a person who knows the proper techniques. A licensed massage therapist specializes in massages and ensures you receive proper treatment for your body.

The massage therapist presses, rubs and manipulates the skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massages range from light stroking to deep pressure. Application of scented oils and lotions soothes the skin and heightens the senses to provide calming sensations to the body.

If you live or work in the Naples or Bonita Springs area, why not stop at Naples Laser and MedSpa on your way home and start your evening off right. Reduce the stress of the day before going home. You’ll feel more relaxed.

Massage types

Swedish massages combine long soothing strokes to relieve stress, aches and pains while improving circulation and a sense of wellbeing.

Deep Tissue Massage uses deeper pressure to reach the inner layers of the muscles. Often sports or exercise enthusiasts find relief from deep tissue massage. Therapists customize the technique to target specific areas of pain or concern.

During Hot Stone Massage, the massage therapist places warm basalt or Himalayan stone on the body in targeted locations. The heat penetrates the muscles, causing them to relax and start the healing process.

Reflexology focuses on specific pressure points in the feet. These points correspond to organs and specific systems in the body. Pressing the points relieves a variety of symptoms.

Can botox make you happy?

Can Botox make you happy?

Can botox make you happy?Can Botox make you happy? A recent article in The Telegraph provides some research to show it can.

Whether you believe it or not, it’s an interesting topic to pursue.

There are apparently a lot of people who get Botox to make them look happier. In return, they feel happier. And, it’s not just one gender running to get a Botox injection. Women and men want to look happier and less sad, especially over  the holidays.

At least one study suggests that Botox actually can reduce depression. According to the article in The Telegraph, “research cited in Aesthetics Journal suggests nine out of 10 patients with major depressive disorder noticed a reduction in symptoms when treated with botulinum toxin, also known as Botox.”

Other experts back up the theory, saying that there is evidence to indicate that if someone looks happier, and they are happier with their appearance, they become happier.

So, can Botox make you happy?

 It makes sense that looking happier would make you feel happier. Try just this simple experiment. Stop what you are doing and just smile. Make it a big happy smile, or even let out a little laugh. Don’t you feel a little happier?

Imagine if you looked in the mirror and a happy looking person was looking back at you. How would that make you feel?

Now, imagine if you have frown lines, especially deep ones between your eyebrows, and that’s what you see when you look in the mirror. Does that make you happy or sad?

Happiness can be contagious. When you are around other people in a good mood, it often lifts your mood. If you see someone smile at you, you often smile back. The physical act of smiling can translate to an inner feeling of happiness.

Have you ever had someone ask you what was wrong, when nothing was wrong? It’s the look you had on your face and you didn’t even realize it. You want your inner and outer happiness to show. Perhaps Botox is the way to go.

Botox isn’t something you should just jump into because you think it will make you happier. You should do some research and seek consultation.

We always talk with our clients first to make sure we know their expectations and goals. We want to do what we can to help them achieve their desired results.
