When you hear holistic health, do you think of alternative medicine? If so, you are partially correct. Holistic health is all about caring for the person in their entirety. It honors your mind-body connection by providing for your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. 

At Project: You Magazine, we’re celebrating Global Wellness Day (GWD) for the entire month of June. One of the main goals of GWD is to live well both spiritually and physically. 

The psychosomatic connection is an important part of holistic wellness, and Bow Tie Massage has incorporated this approach in three different ways. 

1. Massage 

Massage therapy isn’t just a luxurious indulgence, it aids in physical tension, stress, mental health, emotional connection, and sleep. Bow Tie Massage offers Swedish, deep tissue, trigger point, prenatal, and hot stone massages. They listen to you and cater your massage to your needs, so you’ll get the most out of your session.

2. Aromatherapy 

Essential oils are plant extracts used in aromatherapy. This practice has been used for centuries to help everything from relaxation to sore throats. When these oils are breathed in through your nose, they travel from the olfactory nerves to the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain. Bow Tie uses aromatherapy in every massage session at no additional charge. They even use it in the waiting room. 

3. Nutrition

Food is the fuel for your body and your mind.


“In the realm of holistic nutrition, food is viewed as both medicine and nourishment for the whole self,” Julia Schwab Therapy wrote in, “Nourishing the Mind, Body, and Soul: The Power of Holistic Nutrition,” “It recognizes that the food we consume has the power to influence not only our physical health but also our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.” 

Massage packages at Bow Tie Massage come with a gift certificate to their restaurant, Recline and Dine, an upscale Southern soul food restaurant that serves meals made from scratch, guaranteeing the freshest ingredients.

This month, as we extend the celebration of Global Wellness Day, consider embracing holistic health. Visit Bow Tie Massage at 8050 Dexter Rd, Cordova, TN 38016, or call at (901) 337-1140 to learn how holistic wellness can benefit you. For more wellness tips, follow Project: You on Instagram!
