Taking time to bring awareness of your body into your mind can have a deep impact. Meditation, yoga, these have been around for thousands of years. Why? Because a greater connection of the mind and body has great benefits. Give it a week, even a few days. Take time to think about even the simplest action your body does each day and it can have profound effects.
This is partly how massage "works". It helps bring to light these signals that the body has been trying to get through to the brain. Those aha moments that happen on the table(or in the chair) are on a very basic level amplifications of what your body tries to tell you on a daily basis. Take some time to listen to yourself, it can be very rewarding.
