Freedom of mind begins in the body mobility, strength, power, speed, agility, balance and coordination: When you feel these things in your body, you also feel them in your mind. Even the most mentally and emotionally depressing days are enjoyable when you feel freedom in your body. The freedom of the mind is rooted in the freedom inherent in the body. I know that the movement of the body strongly affects the brain. Massage can calm the mind so we can become more peaceful, happier and adaptable to the stresses of life.
