Whenever I get a massage, I try not to book anything else for the remainder of the day. The second I leave the appointment, my body and mind are nothing but mush and it's the best feeling.

Good luck getting me to be active afterward.

The other day, I decided to treat myself to a massage, as I do every so often. My legs were tight and my back was full of knots. I was well overdue. I booked my appointment for a 90-minute deep tissue massage and within seconds I was out like a light. You can have the strongest hands in the world and the pain puts me to sleep. I'm weird like that.

As the massage therapist continued with her routine, I responded between light snoring and daydreaming. It wasn't until the very end of the massage that she asked me something I'd never been asked before:

"Would you like me to massage your abdomen?"

Unsure and a little self-conscious of my fluffy stomach area, I went with the flow and agreed to whatever it was she was prepared to do. After all, she was a professional and her job is to make my body feel better.

Her hands glided across my abdominal region and then downwards and then back again. She was following my intestinal tract. As weird as it sounds, it's rather beneficial for healthy digestion and improves the body's immune functions.

So, take my advice. The next time you go somewhere to get a massage, ask your masseuse if they have any experience with abdominal massage. It's worth every penny.
