An easy place to start can be using a small portion of massage oil, like Seagrape’s Overworked bath + oil which has lavender and rosemary which both have anti-inflammatory properties, and warm it between your hands as you take some cleansing breaths. Place your hands on the area of your body or muscle group that feels tense or tired and just notice the sensation of your touch. Apply gentle pressure that allows you to feel connected to that area of your body and imagine breathing relaxation and wholeness into that space while breathing out tension. Try different pressures, motions, directions, and oils to find what best works in that moment, acknowledging that spending time being intentional in one’s body is healing and beneficial. Sometimes things like trauma and pain can make being present in our bodies difficult, so be sure to be gentle with yourself as you connect and communicate with your body.
