We have made it into November! This Fall month brings so much beauty and so much to be thankful for. The flowers and trees and many of God’s “critters” are preparing to sleep in a final flourish of color and activity. Our neighbors are also bustling about raking the leaves that have fallen, bringing in their porch/deck furniture and giving their cars a final washing.
I encourage you to take time to enjoy this month (before the bitter cold comes) walking in the leaves, cutting some mums to bring color into your home, watching the squirrels busily gathering acorns and nuts and visiting with the neighbors. And continue exercising! Don’t give up walking/running...bundle up a little more, wear reflective or light color clothing (less daylight time), go with your spouse or another friend and treat yourself to a warm beverage when you return home.
Another treat as the month gets cooler is a massage. I have a table warmer and an extra room heater, as well as flannel sheets and warm blankets. I can do a Hot Stone Massage or a warm Body Treatment for extra warmth. Contact me and we will set something up just for you!
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.
