I was wondering along in the brilliant sunshine a few days ago, feeling happy and content. I noticed how everything looks and feels so much better when you are in a good mood. Your mood has a remarkable effect on how you feel – as the saying goes “A rich person in a bad mood can feel destitute, but a poor person in good mood can feel rich beyond belief”. In my massage therapy practice in York I find that massage can have a very positive effect on one’s mood. Clients often report that, after a massage, they have slept better after and have not been plagued with the usual negative thoughts – they feel better in themselves: their mood has lifted.
