Massage & Sleep

As we know, sleep is essential for anyone’s well being. Without sleep, patience wears thin quickly, a fog settles in, and decision making and simple chores can feel impossible. I can personally attest to this, as this past winter, Ethan (my now 10mo old) was a terrible sleeper. I had never felt that kind of fatigue, and I think that is what caused Baby Blues, I could hardly think straight some mornings. No sleep is rough, but what happens when you can’t fall asleep? Or you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep? Or you toss and turn all night? That is also harmful, and will contribute to fatigue and overall not performing at your best.

Hip, Gluts and the Pain they Cause

Have you ever experienced hip, butt (aka the gluts), or sciatic pain? If you have, you will probably be the first to say that it is not pleasant, and many times can be super debilitating. In the past few months, I have had many clients fighting with this, and two in particular whose daily life was completely restricted due to the pain, and they were desperate to fix it.

Maintenance Care

Remember this teaser from the last blog? “What is Point C? Point C is when you can go a month without pain. When you tell me that you have never been this pain free. When you are able to do activities you haven’t been able to do in years. Point C is why I do what I do. And when you get there, I am almost as elated as you are. It’s an amazing place to be. So keep going.“

From A-B

So you’ve had pain for months, a year, maybe many years. That sucks, right? Well, maybe you saw my blog post a couple weeks ago about trying Trigger Point Therapy, when you’ve tried everything else. I’m here today to talk about taking this a bit further. I want you to understand that if you have been having pain that you consider chronic, that means it’s been there for a long time. This also means that because it’s been there for awhile does not mean that your pain will go away after one session with me. Although that would be amazing, it’s just not realistic.

When You've Tried Everything

Do you live in chronic pain? How long has it been? Some people say they’ve been living that way for months, some say a couple years, some say MANY years. And those that say years generally say that they have accepted the fact that this is the way they’ll feel forever. Forever! That’s a long time. And they say this because they have tried everything. Everything from pills, doctors, maybe surgery, physical therapy, massage. So they give up hope.

Low Back Pain

Have you ever had low back pain? If you answered yes, you know how debilitating it can be. And, you are not alone. Low back pain is the second most common cause of disability in US adults and a common reason for lost work days. What do you do to help that low back pain? Take some Tylenol or Ibuprofen? Wait it out and suffer through it, hoping it will go away on its own? MAYBE try a couple of stretches?

Men Need Massage Too

I want you to think about the men in your life. What characteristics do they have? Hard working? Provider? Stubborn? Men take great pride in providing for their families, and most do a pretty darn good job of it too. You know what else they can be good at? Putting themselves on the back burner, "getting through the pain", or saying, "Ah, I'm good, it'll buff out." Sound familiar? Yeah, same here.

Hot Stones

I can’t believe how many days I’ve seen snow and it’s only October 15th! It made me go dig for my sweaters and cozy blankets. In my space, that also means the hot stones get heated up!

If you are a little nervous about hot stones, you’re in the right place. I’m here to tell you what it’s all about.

Pre-Natal Care: Part 2

I’m back for part 2 of my pre-natal care blog. I got so wrapped up in supplements, that the first part was a little longer then anticipated. But that’s all right, I’m now 4 days overdue, so I have been given ample time to add to the first part, haha. Also, I take that to mean that I am passionate about this subject.
