Corporate Massage Therapy

The people that work for you are your biggest assets and all too often companies lose sight of that. Illness, stress and fatigue all take a toll on your employees and that can cost you money. With the help of Massage Therapy, they can soon be on their way to a healthier and more relaxed mind and body.

Massage therapy can help by:

  • Reducing the adverse effects of sitting for long periods of time
  • Relieving physical problems associated with performing repetitive tasks
  • Improving alertness and ability to focus
  • Increasing good feelings about the workplace

Whether we develop an on-site chair massage program for your employees or an off-site office visit referral program, the options are limitless. A small investment in your employees now will help increase productivity, decrease sick days and provide an overall healthier work environment. Call or email me and we can put together a great customized package to suit your needs.

Put Down the Weights & Pickup the Phone…

We’ve all been there.. That moment when you are pushing yourself hard at the gym doing that last rep or that last mile and you realize that you over did it.. Exercise, diet along with rest are all part of the equation to make us healthy and strong but when you over do it, it puts your body out of balance. You need to understand that rest and healing is just as important as pushing yourself hard so take a moment for yourself and put down the weights and make an appointment. We can ease that knot in your back or stretch those overworked legs of yours and have you back to the gym before you know it. Know your limits, take time for yourself and make an appointment that will help you heal. You’ll thank yourself tomorrow.

Work…. What a pain in the……

Work is slowly killing you!!! Well now that I caught your attention it’s probably not a stretch to say that the majority of us can’t stand work (well accept for me of course).. But have you ever thought about what work does to our bodies.. Those of us that work behind a desk are mostly sitting in front of computers all day hunched over a keyboard typing away all day. Bad posture combined with not getting up and walking around during the day takes a toll on our bodies and at the end of the week, we sure do feel it don’t we?

How about those of us that work in a physically demanding job? Maybe you are a postman and on your feet all day from the minute you get to work.. Maybe you are a construction worker that is lifting heavy tools and materials all day.. Well whether you are a mailman, a construction worker, a sanitation worker or even a UPS driver, all of that activity catches up to you. We all joke around and say that we are getting old but unless you take time for yourself to reverse the daily punishment, work is slowly killing each of us.

But there is hope, trust me. Take a moment and realize that you need to put yourself first once in a while. You need to undo all of that bad stuff with a little “You Time” and a relaxing massage. When you are reminded of that pain in your lower back or shoulders at work, pick up the phone and make your appointment. You’ll wonder why you waited as long as you did.

All Massages are Not Equal..

Massage Therapy is as much an art as it is a science and and to be honest, not everyone is as good at what they do as others. For many clients its a very personal experience and it’s important that you feel relaxed and comfortable in order to get the most out of your appointment. As the client you need to know that it is just as important for you to tell me what hurts as it is for me to listen to you. Massage Therapy can be a wonderful way to heal your mind and body and its a great experience when you have chosen a professional, capable and well trained massage therapist. It’s important for you to make time for yourself and to do so with a massage therapist that listens and focuses on the areas that are of concern using proper techniques. Book your appointment today and you will be happy that you did tomorrow.

Make an appointment not an excuse…

Let’s face it… Life is busy. Whether it’s tending to the kids, grocery shopping or making sure dinner is on the table for when everyone gets home, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to take care of everything you need to get done. Well that is where it becomes important for you to realize that you need to take care of yourself first once in a while. Life will always be there throwing things at you so there will always be excuses but you need to learn to put those excuses aside once in a while and make time for you. Trust me. You will thank yourself later.

What’s on your “To Do” list?

Life is never going to slow down for you so it’s always important to make time for yourself. Each day we are faced with a huge list of things to do that never seems to end. Make yourself a priority and give yourself the gift of some much needed rest and relaxation.

The Importance of Drinking Water…

If there is one thing that my clients hear me say time and time again, it’s “Drink Lots of Water”. Yeah, I know we have heard it all before about “Drinking 8 – 10 glasses of water a day”. Some of you shake your head and say “Yeah Yeah.. I will get around to it” but there are some really good reasons I recommend this to all of you. There are many reason’s to drink lots of water and I will cover a couple here and in future posts.

Our body’s are comprised of about 60% water and it’s important to maintain that balance because fluids:

  • Maintain your body temperature
  • Help with digestion
  • Aid in the absorption and transportation of nutrients

In addition to helping with all of that it can also be a huge help when you are trying to lose weight. There is no magic here folks, it’s just science. Water rich foods are typically fruits and vegetables and the higher content of water increases it’s volume and ultimately helps us feel more full. It’s a great way to stay hydrated while watching those calories.

But with all of those ways I mentioned above, the number one reason why I suggest drinking water is because of what it does to your muscles and as a Massage Therapist, that is key. When muscle fiber is starved of water, they become fatigued and that is just another way of saying that water deprived muscles don’t perform as good.

There are many many reasons to remain hydrated and those are just a couple. I will cover others in future posts but for now I recommend that each person drink half their body weight in ounces of water a day. Example: if you are 200lbs. I recommend that you drink 100 ounces and its just that simple.

Have a great day everyone. Until next time.
