Rest is exactly what it connotes: rest. Other similar words that give the impression of rest are relaxation, inactivity and idleness. But, not one of these words resembles, implies or proffers the benefits of sublime surrender or authentic rescue for any part of the human body, ever.
If rest could actually appropriate the wonderful profits of surrender or rescue, the happenstance of arising out of a bed with symptoms resembling stiff joints, achy bones, leg/foot cramps and pinched nerves would likely not occur. And, chronic conditions like Plantar Fasciitis, Tendonitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Frozen Shoulder, Sciatica, etc would seldom be endured. Authentic rescue and true surrender gains are a rare commodity indeed for the entire musculoskeletal structure. And, they may only be obtained via the expert practices and administrations of therapeutic clinical massage techniques.
Warm baths, saunas, jacuzzis and other spa-like modes of soothe are wonderful tranquilizing facilitators that offer many benefits. None of which may be construed as layer-by-layer rescue manipulations.
Furthermore, if our body-wide Soft-Tissues were actually able to obtain more consistent, more effective treatment means for authentic release, they would finally acquire the potential to authentically heal, recover and repair during daily periods of rest. Surripulation® Massage is just one such deep-tissue clinical massage modality that guarantees a most satisfying release of the expansive layers that constrict us.
