Pain in the neck, head, or jaw can be nerve-wracking, making simple activities challenging. Activities like chewing, talking, turning your head, sleeping, concentrating, listening, being vertical without pain, or going out in daylight without sunglasses.  I've met so many people who have confessed to me that they aren't fond of the idea of taking pain meds every day because of the side effects of long-term use. Not feeling certain that a night guard while sleeping [...]

WHY I PREFER WORKING WITH SOMEONE MORE THAN ONCE

When I first started massage school, I initially thought I’d be entering into the spa industry. However, before I was even finished with my training, I discovered that I had a therapeutic bent in my style. And then during my advanced training, I had to do case studies in my practical work, witnessing and documenting the effects of consecutive bodywork sessions. This provided context for how massage works as a therapy. After starting my private [...]

What is the best setting to get a massage? Once you have determined what kind of massage you need (relaxing or therapeutic) the next step is to consider what sort of environment should work well in your particular case. Are you looking for one session or many? Are you just passing through, on vacation? Are you a local in need of regular bodywork to recover from an injury? Is there something that you need [...]

We want to be less tense, restricted and uncomfortable in our own skin. We want to be able to move about more easily. More times than not, people put themselves in therapy because they had a recent misadventure. A trauma of some sort or something super stressful. Surgery even. Oftentimes, they [...]

You have the best chances at nipping illness in the bud if you start taking medicine right at the onset of symptoms. You can help prevent getting sick by boosting up your immune system before or at the time of exposure. At the latest, you want to start attacking it the second your head starts feeling funny, your throat gets scratchy, or you become lethargic and achy. It's not very wise to wait until after you [...]

In an ideal world,  we would all carry knowledge about how to care for our bodies. Healthfulness would be emphasized more comprehensively during our formative years. We would learn human physiology (how the body functions) and nutrition to the same degree we do math and reading. This knowledge would be passed along to us from our tribe - our parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives, and caretakers. It would be a cultural thing. We would be brought up knowing [...]

Maintaining good health and healing requires an integrative holistic approach AND it takes a team of allies to support us on our journey.
