From a very early age, women are exposed to standards of what they must look like, in order to be in the ranks of beautiful women. Certainly for all of my life, the expectation has been for women to be extremely slender regardless of muscle content or bone structure. The truth is, that beauty truly is not an exterior only aspect of attractiveness. Along the way, society seems to have lost sight of true beauty that originates from within.
With the increase of women in the work force, the amount of stress they experience has increased exponentially. The women of today vs. days of old, are driven, competitive and oft times excessive workaholics in their career, while making every effort to stay on top of their home and needs of their family. Between work, commuting to their place of employment, and trying to keep a marriage alive and well, their children well cared for, the modern day women is often depicted as Superwoman.
What women may not realize, is that stress takes a toll on their health and their beauty. While they race through life, getting to the office in commuter traffic, grabbing brief case or folders of work to do at home, rush home to make dinner and get their children accomplished in homework and tucked in; they diminish their own health. Long term stress, causes sleep deprivation and/or insomnia, digestive issues, Adrenal fatigue and Fibromyalgia to name a few.
Chronic pain added to the stresses of all this multi-tasking can not only diminish quality of life, but it can also deteriorate the beauty within, that in turn takes away from over-all beauty, and an actual detriment to facial beauty. Stress alone can cause premature aging, as frown lines and other emotions begin to show up in wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and upon the forehead. A lack of peace or balance in one’s life, can literally rob an individual of their youth.
The good news however, is that one is not stuck with this as a reality of life indefinitely. It will, however, take a commitment to re-evaluate one’s priorities, and chisel out some time for your own well being. As a sufferer of adrenal fatigue, chronic migraines and neck pain, I have experiential knowledge in these conditions, in which I have done extensive research. In my personal research, I have found one spa type clinic that would best suit the individuals needs. Serenity Healing Arts Center has such a full staff of practitioners, that this one facility can aid their clients in achieving equilibrium in their health as well as their inner and outer beauty. The first half hour evaluation for Fibromyalgia is a miniscule amount. Their heart on this issue is that the person’s well being is of the utmost importance. They would like to give it totally for free, but since their book keeping program will not allow it, they charge only $1 for this evaluation process. In this consult, a plan to address the clients needs will be set up, with nutrition, exercise and Aromatic Massage Therapy. The massage rates are as follows; 60 minutes for $30.00 and 90 minutes for $50.00.
I know from my own personal experience that chronic pain not only causes me to feel older than my 50 years, but to also look older. Stress on the body and mind can certainly effect one’s health and well being and their over-all appearance. I’ve found it impossible to feel beautiful when I am being crushed by migraine pain. So if you are experiencing chronic pain or Fibromyalgia, I would highly recommend their Practitioner:
Tony Ruggiero, NCTMB, LMT 864-295-0244 or 275-0229 (cell). I certainly intend to make an appointment immediately upon my return to the Upstate of South Carolina.
