How do you take care of you?

In Massage, self care on August 3, 2022 at 1:10 PM

Hello!

I can’t believe we are already in August. Summer months seem to fly by as an adult.

I hope you’ve been able to get out and enjoy. Despite being someone who’s always melted in the heat – I’ve been really proactive about enjoying the outdoors while we can …. swimming, walking/hiking, reading a book in the sun, getting my hands in some dirt, making art, and dinners on the deck … because spending time in nature really improves my mental health.  Outside of getting regular massage, any kind of outdoor movement seems to support me the best.

What helps you feel calmer or rejuvenated?

Hope to see you in my office soon. Until then, take care of you. ♥

Joyful Movement

In body positive, community, local artist, personal, self care on June 7, 2022 at 3:33 PM

I’m not much of a selfie person … but every once in a while I’ll throw one up so you know who you’re interacting with. I know when I’m making a decision on whether or not to do business with someone, I like to know something about who I’m supporting … especially with a profession like massage therapy.

This morning I started a Summer Training Camp. It’s a supportive online community with women of all body shapes and sizes where we’ll spend 12 weeks either prepping for anything from a 5K to a half marathon or doing a weight lifting program. I choose both 😳🏋️‍♀️🏃‍♀️. I’ll probably stick to walking … but the encouragement of the program may get me to run (ahem…slow jog) again. We’ll see.

Either way that’s not really the point. It’s about finding joyful movement…whatever that means to you…in whatever body you’re living in right now …without intent to change it – just to enjoy and care for it. :)

Anyways … they asked for us each to post a pic so we can get to know one another … and that’s why I even have a pic to share here…

Anyone local want to sign up too? They’re leaving it open for the rest of today. It would be fun to have in person community along with the online one. 😊 In fact I’ve been wanting to start a walking group for those of us who move SLOW for a while. I’d love to hear from you if you’re interested.

Massage Reviews

In 2022, Massage, meditation, reflexology, self care, Uncategorized on April 6, 2022 at 12:32 PM

These are
a handful of recent reviews
from massage clients.
It always fills me with a
sense of purpose to know
that an hour spent together
can shift the outcome of your day.
Holding safe space, being present,
creating a respite,
hoping you feel heard and
witnessed . . .
these are things I like to do.

You can schedule your next massage appointment by going to the MASSAGE tab and clicking the BOOK NOW button. See you soon! :)

Neck Massage

In CT, Indulge, Manchester, Massage, meditation, Refresh, self care, Uncategorized on October 20, 2021 at 2:37 PM

Did you know that the average head weighs around 11 pounds? That’s a lot to carry around and be supported by only 7 vertebrae on your neck. Regular therapeutic massage can help ease some of the tension and pain that is often held in the neck muscles . . . and it feels good. 🙂

Book your next session today.

Tell your friends and family to follow along too and give everyone a chance for some rest and rejuvenation. 🙂

Insomnia?

In Massage on March 31, 2021 at 3:48 PM

If you have insomnia, or an active mind at night – try using this pressure point. Massaging ‘Heart 7’ for 30 seconds on each wrist may help you become sleepy more easily. Try it and let me know if it helps.

Active Isolated Stretching

In Massage, self care, Uncategorized on January 28, 2021 at 5:19 PM

Quickly increase the range of movement in your neck by using a simple technique called Active Isolated Stretching. I’ll teach you two stretches in this video and give you an introduction to what A.I.S. is. By actively using our breath we increase blood flow to the tissues – and that means more oxygen and nutrients getting to the muscles. By specifically engaging one muscle group – the opposite is encouraged to relax – this is called reciprocal inhibition. And by holding each stretch for only 2 seconds we avoid engaging the stretch reflex. Try it out and let me know what results you achieve. As always I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂

Reiki

Not sure you’re ready to come back in for a massage session? Why not try long distance energy work. You can receive it right from the safety of your own home.

Box Breathing
