Happy New Year! Massage tip of the week: STRETCH! I know this can be a difficult one for some of you, but taking time to stretch out your body once per day is imperative! It helps to keep your muscles from tightening up. This is important because when your muscles tighten, they can pull bones out of alignment, ruining our posture. Stretching helps increase range of motion and flexibility! As we age, we lose these abilities which make touching our toes, picking up packages, or just sitting on the floor difficult tasks. You can regain and maintain your range of motion and flexibility through regular stretching. Remember never stretch cold muscles! Always warm up first and hold your stretch for 30-60 seconds. It takes time to loosen the muscle tissue, so if you have a tight muscle holding the stretch closer to 60 seconds would be beneficial. If your running short on time and have to skip your workout, you can still stretch after a hot shower. Never bounce when stretching and if you feel any pain during stretching you’ve gone to far, back out of the stretch a bit. Make sure you always breathe easy and deeply while stretching, never hold your breath! Stretching helps your body in the same ways that massage does! It keeps down your stress levels too!

2010 has been quite the year for me. Starting up this business was not in my original plan when it began. But as things unfolded and opportunities began to present themselves, I started to realize that everything had brought me here, to this place and time, so I could start on the path I was meant for. I had always dreamed of having my own successful massage practice inside a beautiful serene acupuncture clinic! Now I do! I want to express a big THANK YOU to my wonderful husband Andy, who is responsible for updating and maintaining my beautiful website, and helping me in so many ways. With out his support, my dream would not have come to fruition. I am so grateful everyday for his love and friendship.
My blogging was a bit sporadic these first few months due to the classes I was taking! In 2011, I will be blogging several times per week about the events I attend, massage, the human body, injuries, illnesses, health, overall wellness, and so much more! I do hope you stop by this site often to see what’s new. I will also continue to offer a monthly discount, so continue to check the home page. A new year is almost upon us!! So, a massage tip for the NEW YEAR is a must… Make this coming year about YOU by participating in preventative health-care. Don’t wait to get sick before you seek treatment. Look into all the ways you can create a healthier life now by reducing illness and increasing your longevity! Massage, Acupuncture, Yoga, Good Food, Vitamins, Exercise, Meditation. You have choices, choose wisely!! Happy Holidays to you all!! I look forward to helping Tucson relax, one shoulder at a time!!
A few weekends ago I had a booth out at the Oro Valley Arts Festival. It was an amazing time! I met some wonderful people and was able to spread the word about massage and it’s benefits. I had many individuals interested in the chair and table massages and passed out discount cards. All proceeds were donated to the SAACA summer music program. This is a great organization putting on great events to support the music and arts communities right here in Tucson. I was pleased to have been a part of this festival! Thanks very much to Matt Bowman and everyone at SAACA for allowing me to participate! I look forward to the spring events to come! Happy Holidays!
