Thai Massage in Baltimore


What if I told you there was something out that that combined acupressure, static and dynamic stretching, healing touch, and meditation? Sound too good to be true? Well, it is real! And it is called Thai massage.

Thai massage is one of my favorite ways to relax, heal, and recharge by restoring the body’s imbalances and relieving tension. Treating yourself to a thai massage can transport you, and sometimes it is nice to get away- even if it is for just an hour or two. But treating yourself does not necessarily mean breaking the bank. Here is a wonderful local option that helps promote wellness and stills allow you to be mindful of your budget: Thai Massage in Baltimore

Breathe. Get centered. And Relax.

Have you ever had one of those hectic days? Where everything is just flying at you a mile a minute? Or you’re so stressed, you have trouble falling asleep? Well, guess what: the answer is in your breath.

Some of you may have experienced the calming effects of focusing on your breath during yoga. It is a simple technique that can be used anytime, anywhere – not just on the yoga mat – to bust stress!

Here is how:

Sit in a quiet place you feel comfortable, roll your shoulders back and straighten your spine.

Deeply inhale and hold it for a few seconds.

Take your right thumb and press it to your right nostril, close it completely and exhale through the left.

Pause and inhale through your left nostril.

Use your ring and middle finger to close your left nostril and exhale through the right before pausing and breathing in again through the right.
Continue to alternate sides, making sure to pause for couple seconds at the top and bottom of each breath. Each breath you take should be long and full. Continue alternating nostril breathing for at least 5 minutes. If you want to aim for a deeper sense of relaxation, you can do it for up to 10 minutes.

Now, if you’re nose it so congested due to allergies that you cannot do this exercise, well then, that’s another conversation.

A couple weeks ago, I came home from a run feeling totally rejuvenated. I’d gone into it thinking about a relationship dilemma, and by the time I finished my loop, I’d found resolution in a calm and levelheaded manner—it felt like a meditative experience.

That’s not the first time I’ve likened running to meditation. Whenever people ask me if I meditate, I usually pause and say something like, “Well, I don’t meditate, per se, in that staring-at-a-candle-for-20-minutes sort of way. But I do run a lot, and I feel like they both produce similar mind-clearing results, so they’re kind of the same thing.”

Not exactly.

Experts agree that it is possible to practice meditation while running (more on that later), but to say they’re equivalent misses some important points. Let’s start with some basic facts. Defined, meditation is essentially anything in which you intentionally set aside time…
