Everyone suffers injuries sometimes and it can be easy to get into a rut of worry that exacerbates the problem.
As I mentioned last week massage can be a useful tool when working through an injury. But along with physical adjustments you need to make sure your mind is engaged in the healing process.

When you’re injured it is tempting to hold back, or take a break until you feel better, but that is often the worst thing to do. If you start skipping practice you’ll lose the benefits of Bikram, and won’t necessarily improve more quickly. It’s better to continue your practice with whatever breaks or modifications you need. This will promote good circulation and respiration, boost your immune system, and build your physical and mental strength.
