Merry Christmas! And as one of my favorite songs states…" it's the most wonderful time of the year!" So many things to smile about: the pretty lights, Christmas carols, yummy cookies and candies, parties, favorite Christmas movies, the bright eyes of children, Christmas pageants at Church…and all your favorites as well. However, it can also be a stressful time.
There is usually too much to do in too short of a time. So here are a few suggestions: instead of making 12 varieties of cookies, pick 3-5 (or whatever you find time for); buy a 5 foot Christmas tree rather than a 10-foot tree; write less cards before Christmas and save some for after Christmas (write them while the children are playing with some new toys); choose 2-3 charities you want to donate to instead of trying to donate to all of them. And the biggest quandary is the gift buying and giving…the commercialism encourages buy more and buy expensive but reality says "I can't" or "I don't want to."
I can help with some of this! Check out the Gift Certificate section of my website. You can do it all on line! Or contact me and I will help you over the phone or let you know which hours I will be available to stop by the Office. This will help decrease your stress as well as the person on the receiving end of the Gift Certificate. Have a blessed Christmas that is bright with the light of Jesus.
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.
