Happy February 2016! This is the month we tend to focus on Love. We like to show those we Love how much we Love them through gifts, special dinners, and so forth. We all know the symbol for Love is the Heart.
I want to encourage everyone to think about their own (anatomical) Heart this month and how to care for it. You might know the basics like I do...healthy eating, exercise, managing stress. But there is more you can learn and do.
Some of the resources you can use are Go Red for Women and The American Heart Association. You can learn about risks and symptoms, specific healthy foods, types of exercise, and stress management.
I will have some brochures on hand and will be collecting money for The American Heart Association's Go Red for Women organization. Everyone who donates at my office or online will have a chance to win one of three prizes. Oh, and while you are here donating money and/or having a massage, remember to pick up some gift certificates to encourage relaxation to reduce stress for those you Love!
Be well...be happy!
There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.
