TENSION - What is it?
by Ray T
TENSION - What is it? How does one get it? Most people experience it at some point in their lives. They don't realise that it is within their make-up.
A stiff neck? Oh, I've been in a draught. Back pain? I've lifted something heavy. One tends to make excuses for every little discomfort that occurs within the body.
I found out that I was tense whilst on holiday in Tunisia some year ago. My wife suggested that we take advantage of the massage facilities available within the hotel.
I was confronted with a huge Egyptian who, within seconds after working on my back, said that I appeared to have a suit of armour under my skin. He said that my body was so tense that he had trouble carrying out the complete massage. He said that I had a very tense nervous system and that regular massage sessions would help enormously.
I begun to analyse my be behaviour and realised that there was a lot in what he had said. Many things that are not obvious. Watching T for example, there is a tendency to become so involved in that.
Tension tends to creep into your system. Walking in a crowded public thoroughfare where everyone seems to be getting in your way and you are constantly dodging round people.
My youngest daughter said to me that I should consider a serious of massages and promptly found on the internet "Touching Well", which is very local to me and handy, me, being past my sell-by date.
There I met Regina, who, after a discussion suggested a series of body massages and assess the results. I was amazed to find a complete change in my physical condition, feeling more relaxed, fitter and sleeping better. So I entered a prolonged series of body massages which enabled me to get rid of my stiff neck, back aches and all kinds of minor disabilities brought about by old age.
I still attend these sessions on a monthly basis in a warm and friendly atmosphere where I can forget life and its troubles for a very welcome hour.
Very well done, Regina, and a big Thank You.
