The Unveiling

Hello everyone,

I am back with a new post and this time its personal (well actually all my post are personal, just like the way that sounds).  I've added a very exciting division to my business this month.  As you can imagine being a massage therapist, health and wellness are priorities in my life.  I work hard to give my clients the best work for their individual needs.  Often sharing what I believe is a good product with my friends, family and clients, I can now share what I have found to be the best addition to my health care regimen(with an added bonus).  I have added a link to my new business website that will give you more information on what I am up to, and how it can bring a much welcomed change in your life.  As always thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog page.

It's Late

So its almost 12 am and I am getting ready to call it a day.  I started to think about something that was suggested to me by Stephanie, the holistic nutritionist at Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary last month. Stephanie suggested making time for a "down time" routine.  I am wondering how many people are doing this.  For my "down time" I decided to start with 5 minutes before I go lay down in bed to sit/lay on the ground and focus on my breathing.  I try to imagine I am directing air to every cell in my body, in private and silence.  I will be incorporating the use of essential oil, most likely lavender or tea tree, on shiatsu points I find comforting (ST 36, Sp 6, GB 12).  So far I have really noticed a change in my ability to fall asleep right away, as well as stay asleep (I tend to wake up at night).

Would anyone like to share if they have their own routine to help quite the mind/relax before going to bed?  I am interested in hearing what benefits you may have noticed from doing this, and if you have been doing this for a while do you find you have to keep changing the routine in order to relax?  Thank you for taking the time to read my post and for sharing your experience or just commenting on whatever you feel on this topic.

Now I am off to breathe :)

I will write a update on the use of essential oils in this routine shortly.  Below are images showing the Shiatsu points I mentioned above.  Please note SP 6 should not be used on pregnant as it can induce labor.

ST3 36

SP 6 Do not apply pressure to this point if pregnant as it can induce labor.

GB 12 marked as # 12

Massage Therapy For Insomnia And Depression

Wanted to share this article I came across discussing a topic many clients/people suffer from during this time of the year. Insomnia is one of the chief complaints I work to eliminate in my practice. I find some people are informed on what massage therapy can do for a body suffering from the effects of insomnia, but there seems to be a large group of people who do not know about the many alternative treatments that can help this condition. I hope you find this article of some help and interest. Thank you for stopping by "Is this thing on?"

The Benefits of Reconstructive Proliferant Therapy

It has been a while since I posted, but I have found something that got me in the mood to blog. This article I came across on the Massage Today website is quite fascinating to me as it is a therapy I had little understanding of. I hope you find this information here interesting and/or helpful if you are one of the many Americans living with pain or have a loved one in this situation. I encourage you to continue to uncover ways to live as healthy as you can and know that there are people who want to help you reach wellness. Thanks for checking in, I know our time is precious to us all and having you share of few minutes with me here is valued.

PS Did anyone receive a free massage last month during national massage therapy awareness week (Oct. 23 - 29)?
