Donna: Last week Lorri wrote about workplace health and power breathing. I tried her suggestions and they worked. I am much more relaxed. This week she continues with a discussion about the relaxing impact of massages. Personally, I’ve never had a full-body massage. I’m very shy and extremely ticklish. Plus, I feel a need to talk a lot and tell bad jokes when things are quiet. Don’t ever get on an elevator with me unless you’re ready to be embarrassed. Lorri, as always, has great tips below that will make a positive difference in your life!

Where was your tension? Once you have located it, try one of the massages below.

If you have the chance, there’s always the option of a professional massage during your lunch break or at the end of your day!
