Calm Down! Massage Therapists and…Coloring?

Massage Therapists do the Trick

Finding the calmness in today’s world can be a tricky task—our massage therapists see the stress in people every day. From home to school to work to practice to rehearsal to dinner, our lives are dominated by things we have to get done every day.

The nice part about our lives is that we usually don’t find ourselves bored, but the downside comes when we realize that we’ve gone through a whole week and haven’t let our blood pressure and our nerves take a break!

That’s where we come in here at Paradise Massage Studio. Our therapists trained to massage your way into relaxation and rest can help you find that sweet spot in your week that makes you more productive for the rest of it. We want to start a series called Calm Down! We’re going to take you on a journey to find the best way for you to find relaxation.

Coloring Tips from Your Favorite Massage Therapists

Join the skeptical club if you’re wondering why we’re even mentioning that thing you did in preschool and kindergarten where people told you to stay within the lines and draw your people with less of a circle body. But we’re here to tell you that coloring isn’t just for your little tykes—it may change your world!

Coloring has been proven to relax the brain and allow the parts of your body controlling relaxation and creativity to flow. Coloring allows you to focus in the now and there are awesome health benefits attached.

Fox News did a blurb on coloring just a few months ago and quoted Ben Michaelis, a clinical psychologist saying: “the amygdala, which is the part of the brain that is involved with our fear response, actually gets a bit, a little bit of rest, and it ultimately has a really calming effect over time.”

What’s cool is that you don’t need to go to Walmart and pick up the Thomas the Train coloring book to find your relaxation—after all, you’re not 5 anymore. There are adult coloring books—coloring 303! They are full of awesome pictures and patterns for our minds to focus on and help us get to the state of relaxation we’re looking for.


We’ll keep this series going, but in the meantime, check out a cool adult coloring book and come on over to our massage therapists at Paradise to start your resolution to relax!
