We were taught that health is a condition that comes and goes in a random and capricious way. But let us view our health from a new, different perspective: it is not something that just happens; we are responsible for it. Nobody is going to gift us our health; we must nurture it consciously and constantly. Our task is to recognize as early as possible that our homeostasis is reaching its adaptive limits. We invite you to take care of your health with body massages.
