Yardwork backache

Happy April! It is officially Spring and all of nature is waking up. All the neighbors are beginning to stir. Isn't it great! Isn't it lovely! However...with all the happy, there is also some extra work...hard work! The weeds are growing long before the flowers and the grass, and they are a challenge to keep ahead of. The mowing and trimming and planting and mulching need time and energy and muscle power. The windows need washing after the winter and there may be some outside painting that needs to be done. Then of course there are the kids' Spring sports and sitting on those less than comfortable bleachers.

I am not trying to talk you out of loving Spring. Rather, I am cautioning you to pace yourself. Some of the muscles have not been used for a few months, so please do not try to do too much all at one time. Start out slowly...remember to stretch (treat outdoor activities like sport activities)...drink plenty of schedule extra massages! Contact me and we can set some appointments.

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.
