A good massage therapist is like a four leaf clover: hard to find & lucky to have.

When did things change?


Are you paying for a 60 or 90 minute massage and only getting 50 or 80 minutes of bodywork? When did this become the norm? Oh, I understand why massage therapy businesses have their services set up this way…… get clients in and out, which allows for more appts being offered and more income being generated. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with income being generated. These facilities are paying for staff and still want to make a profit.

However, the client is paying for 5 minutes pre massage and 5 minutes post massage (getting on and off the table). This concept leaves me baffled. I am a firm believer that if you pay for a 60 minute massage, you should get 60 minutes of actual massage!

Could poor posture be affecting your paraspinal muscles?


Have you even heard of the paraspinal muscles? Probably not. They’re tiny but very important!

What are the paraspinal muscles?

Within the intermediate layer you have three paraspinal muscles: the iliocostalis, longissimus, and spinalis muscles. You have two of each muscle, located on either side of your spine.” (Healthline)

What do the paraspinal muscles do?

You use them every time you lean to one side, arch your back, bend forward, or twist your torso. (Healthline)

What affects the paraspinals?

Poor posture

When you sit or stand up straight, your paraspinal muscles relax. When you’re hunched over or leaning more to one side, it strains your paraspinal muscles, which have to work harder to support your spine. (Healthline)

What helps paraspinal muscle pain?

Massage/trigger point

Gliding down the paraspinals with thumb or elbow, releasing areas of tightness along the way, going with and against the fibers. You’re back will thank you!!!

See you at the studio!

MASSAGE APPTS IN YOUR HOME/OFFICE


BEGINNING APRIL 1ST, I AM TRANSITIONING TO IN HOME/OFFICE MASSAGE APPTS WITHIN FREDERICK COUNTY. ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I GET ASKED ON A REGULAR BASIS IS, "WHERE DO YOU SET UP YOUR TABLE?" 

WE CAN SET UP ANYWHERE THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM TO FIT THE MASSAGE TABLE!  WE DON'T NEED A LARGE SPACE. SOMETIMES, IT IS JUST A MATTER OF MOVING A COFFEE TABLE! ONE OF THE OBVIOUS BENEFITS OF HAVING A MASSAGE IN YOUR HOME OR OFFICE, YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRAVEL TO ME! IF WE DO THE MASSAGE IN YOUR HOME, I LEAVE AND YOU CAN RELAX WITHOUT HAVING TO GET BACK IN YOUR CAR TO DRIVE HOME!

FOR ALL CLIENTS WHO HAVE BEEN SEEN AT MY OFFICE, PRIOR TO APRIL 1, 2019, YOUR FEE WILL NOT CHANGE FOR ME TO COME TO YOU! SO, IF YOU ARE THINKING OF SCHEDULING AN IN STUDIO APPT, MAKE SURE TO DO SO BEFORE MARCH 31, 2019, SO YOU CAN ENJOY AN IN HOME/OFFICE MASSAGE AT IN HOME/OFFICE APPT AT AN IN STUDIO PRICE!
