Week of June 24, 2018
What’s Happening: (A little bit about myself) I became a massage therapist after discovering I had celiac disease (an autoimmune disorder) and found natural ways for my body to heal and function. I had been on total and permanent disability for about 8 years, not knowing the real cause of all the illness. After healing with a healthy diet, using homeopathy and seeing a naturopath, I decided I wanted to help others feel better too. I was in my late thirties with a small child and my husband and I were taking care of my father-in-law, so I could not commute very far for school and money was pretty limited. Massage school seemed like the best fit for me since I now wholeheartedly believed in natural healing and the school was close and affordable. Turns out that massage therapy was perfect choice as I absolutely love what I do now and love how I am able to affect positive change (even if small) in others lives.

Keeping hydrated is an important part of staying healthy. Water promotes cardiovascular health, keeps your body cool, helps muscles and joints work better and keeps skin supple. Here is this week’s hydration recipe:
Mango Pineapple Water
1 medium sized mango, thinly sliced
1 cup pineapple, chopped
Peel and slice 1 mango. Add 1 cup of finely chopped pineapple and water. Refrigerate 4-6 hours before drinking to allow flavors to infuse.
DIY Hand and Forearm Massage
Too much texting? Don’t worry. Try this hand / forearm massage to help relax your muscles.
- Relax one arm, palm up, on top of your thigh.
- Push the heel of your other palm slowly along the forearm in the direction of your wrist.
- Use enough pressure to feel some heat, but not to give yourself a brush burn.
- Do the same thing across your open palm all the way down toward your fingertips, and again over the mound of your thumb.
- Repeat a few times, and switch hands.
