You can get a Swedish massage, try yoga meditation, or a warm bath in ebsom salts, 1/2 cup to full tub of water. Listen to calming music and read a good book.

If you can possibly take a couple of hours off of the moving, then get some of your favorite exercise, take a hot bath and a power nap. If you can, get a relaxing massage...or a polarity energy session is very relaxing...good luck with your move!

There is no doubt that moving can be a stressful time in our lives. What part of the move is stressful to you ? Is it the packing ? I think the key , if you have time, is in planning the move. I like to listen to my favorite music while I'm packing. If you have time, I would go get a massage that focuses on Neuromuscular therapy to help relieve the tension in those shoulders and neck. Aromatherapy can be useful as well. If you have any lavender essential oils you can put about 7-8 drops ina carrier oil like, sweet almond or grapeseed oil ( this oil is your base ) or in some hot water and breathe it in. I like a combination of lavender and chamomile. Chamomile is one of the most sedating of the essential oils. With the aromatherapy combination you can massage the scalp with it - its very soothing and try to think of calming environments while doing this. Remember, this is about perspective - the move will be over soon and you will have a new great place to live in. Think of every step you need to do, write it down, ( planning it ) , and cross it off when done. It may sound elemental, but once its physically off the page, its one less thing you have to do. Good luck. Incidentally I have had clients ( just had one last week) who got a massage during this packing process.
Just Breathe......,

Half an hour Indian Head Massage is fantastic yet a quick way to relax.

Furthermore, EFT (emotional freedom technique) tapping will reduce the emotional stress in relation to what exactly is stressing you out (i.e. wanting everything within the move to be done quickly, perfectly, or is it to do with other peoples inadequacies, or does the stress come from a past experience, a move that was upsetting or where things went wrong, or you overwhelmed with the whole subject??). EFT is done quickly and learned quickly - you don't have to spend hours to let go of the stress.

Wishing you all the Best, whichever route you are going to take :-)

Hi I too am about to pack up to move whilst trying to sell our house! V stressful ! I find anything that can give you time to switch off and take you away from packing for an hour or more can help. Personally I find reflexology or aromatherapy massage very relaxing. A heated massage such as hot stone or lava shells is blissful and helps achy muscles too!
Good luck with it all.

Stretching would not only prevent some soreness but help you relax and if you have a jacuzzi tub, that would be extremely beneficial as well. Maybe add some candles and music ;)

Hi Carla - I am a reflexologist and this is fantastic for de-stressing. The treatment will take approximately an hour after consultation but you will really feel the benefits after just one treatment. Not sure where you are located if you are local to me or not but if not look up the AOR website and put in your postcode and you will find someone local :) Good luck with the move !

To relax your body whilst your are moving, perhaps treat yourself to a Indian Head Massage or a body massage, as your muscles get stiff if you are tense all the time, also have a nice warm bath at the end of the day, with a few drops of oil in, which will help relax you. Reiki is a good treatment to have as it will help you focus and will help your body to relax.

The ocean will be best. But a swim in the pool will do!

Relaxing massage for an hour, a hot soaking bath with some smelly stuff in the water, then go to bed and sleep.

CristinaR 5 years ago

the best thing to do is have a massage, but a relaxation massage(effleurage) along with some lavander aromatherapy, to end with a warm bath soak.

I would start with a 30min walk in the countryside, followed by an Indian Head, Neck and Shoulder Massage to unwind and relax.

Take a few minutes and remove yourself from the stress. Sit quietly and gather your thoughts. (Don't think of what has to be done next) A Relaxation massage can energize and renew the drive to complete the task at hand

There are many ways to de-stress. You can try many different things but you should see what works best for you. I give reflexology sessions which are very relaxing. I would also recommend you to do any exercise. Using your muscles when you are stressed is always helpful.

Hi, I would suggest Clary Sage oil, 6 to 10 drops in a warm bath (or put in full fat milk in a warm bath), Tisserand described it as the marujhana- can't spell that, of the essential oils. Helps detach you from lifes problems, also good in an oil burner, not to be used if you have any problems with alcohol addiction. My personal fave is neroli oil, a wonderful psychological and skin oil. I have posted reviews on here as a consumer, but I am also a trained Aromatherapist- I keep that quiet!

i recommend a Swedish massage integrated with reflexology.

brittvp 5 years ago

A simple Swedish massage with light strokes and no deep work would be a great way to relax and reduce the tension that is probably building while your moving house. Tell the therapist to keep it light pressure and ask for no talking during the massage so you can lose yourself in the comforting touch and atmosphere.
