With a culture spending more time sitting in front of the computer, tight hips and thighs are becoming a very common problem. Wide Angle Pose Against The Wall is a very gentle and effective way to stretch the groin and inner thigh. It’s definitely one of my top five yoga poses! You don’t need any fancy equipment- just a folded blanket or two, and of course a wall! Honestly, the hardest part of this pose is finding a wall space without any knick knacks or furniture! So watch the video and give it a try!
Infant Massage is a completely natural and safe way to therapeutically assist your baby and create an even deeper bond . I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for 12 years and on Tuesday, April 29th I will be hosting another Infant Massage Workshop.
New parents often feel overwhelmed and a little bit helpless when their newborn is experiencing common ailments like constipation, gas, colic, teething, nasal and chest congestion. In this workshop I will be covering all of these often problematic discomforts and teach you truly effective techniques that can comfort baby.
The studio is a baby friendly environment , equipped with ambient lighting, music, and comfortable places to breast feed and change your baby.
It’s that time of year again. Christmas is around the corner. Still haven’t finished all of your holiday shopping? Don’t have the perfect gift for everyone on your list? Couldn’t find that special something for that special someone?
You could head out to the mall and circle around the parking lot endlessly to find a parking space. You could brave the crowds . You could struggle with selecting the right style, the right size, the right color. You could wait in a never ending lineup with little kids counting out every last cent in their piggy bank, ladies digging for coupons in the bottom of their purse and for “that guy” to return with a price check from isle five.
You could come down to Sanctuary Yoga and Massage, where there is ample free parking, no line ups, no hustle, no bustle. You can select a Christmas Gift Card Package that is guaranteed to please everyone on your list! Can’t decide? No problem! Get a gift card in any denomination and let the recipient select the services that they would enjoy.The more you spend, the more you get back in gift cards for yourself! You’re in , you’re out and everyone’s happy!
When most people think of massage therapy, they usually think of “grown ups” going for a massage after work to release all the tension from hours at the computer. While the majority of my clients are often people experiencing pain and discomfort from physically demanding jobs, or postural problems from sedentary jobs, I do have the opportunity to help other special populations.
Soon, I will be hosting another infant massage workshop. Babies and their caregivers (lol) can truly benefit from massage. Massage is a natural, drug-free way to help sooth common discomforts from congestion to constipation. And if we have a happy baby, we have a happy household
Prenatal massage is another special population where medications for aches and pains need to be kept to a bare minimum, and massage therapy can be a safe and natural treatment for everything from common low back and hip pain to headaches and leg cramps.
Very often the “tweens” and teens are forgotten when it comes to massage therapy. I know right now your probably thinking “why on earth would they need a massage?” Well if your kids are working and playing hard at hockey, soccer, dance, cheer-leading, – and lets face it, growing at a rapid rate- massage therapy can be a great way to help treat common injuries and discomforts from over doing it, and keep them in the game. And… what parents don’t usually realize is that company and work benefits almost always cover massage therapy for the entire family, including their kids, up until the age of 21.
Last but certainty not least, massage therapy has a tremendous benefit for seniors. Often times because of drug interactions and sensitivities pain medications are best avoided. This is where massage therapy can help to reduce pain and discomfort to keep seniors doing the things they love most, like gardening and keeping up with the grandchildren!
So next time you see a family member complaining about aches and pains or searching through the medicine cabinet, perhaps you should stop and think “maybe it’s time to book a massage?”
