Happy November! My 2 favorite things about this month are my son's birthday and Thanksgiving. My son makes me happy and so does "giving thanks". I think it is so very important to take time to think about all we have to be thankful for. My list is endless it seems…my husband, our combined family, friends, my Savior Jesus Christ, my job and all my clients, rest at the end of my day, warm showers in the morning, health, a cup of warm tea when I am cold, crisp apples and juicy oranges, a brisk walk, working in my flower garden (aka: dirt therapy), laughing with my grandchildren, hearing my children say they love me, etc. Take time to reflect this month on all you have to be thankful for…it is not always the big things either. Tell someone you are thankful that he or she is part of your life and why. Encourage others to be thankful as well.
"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." ~ 1Thessalonians 5:18
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.
