It’s the Season for Giving

Albert Einstein's Frontal LobeWhat comes to mind when you see or hear the phrase “It’s the season for giving”? For many it brings the mindless but not heartless pre-occupation of gift-giving, as it presents itself to our Anatomy & Physiology. This time of year it starts surfing within the brainwaves and flowing through the heart, sometimes as early as September and continues through December 24 and and for certain people even beyond, year after year.

Our life’s work -our purpose and passion at Amelia Massage Associates – encompasses anatomy and physiology every day, so it’s reasonable to think that the tradition of gift-giving during the holiday season, or throughout the year, is actually all about two of our most vital anatomical organs: the brain and the heart.

The Frontal Lobe of the brain is associated with reasoning, planning, parts of speech, movement, emotions, and problem solving. The Occipital Lobe is associated with visual processing.

The heart represents love, affection, and the central or innermost parts of us, our character, feelings, or inclinations. Whether you are the giver or the receiver, your gift will be processed through your brain and your heart, and your entire body will feel the positive effects. 

So is it better to give or to receive? Giving yourself a Relaxing Couple Massage negates that dilemma completely.

My personal anatomy and physiology tells me that both options are positive resolutions to “It’s The Season For Giving.”
