CHANGE AND SEA MONSTERS

Dictionary.com defines change as the following: CHANGE verb (used with object), changed, changing. To make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone: To change one's name; to change one's opinion; To change the course of history.  What a simple, easy to understand, straight to the point definition.  And yet, as simple as it is to understand, why then do we humans have so much trouble implementing change into our own lives? I’m not talking about changing the tires on your car, or, the vacuum bag, or your little human’s diapers; although some of these things are dull, taxing,…

JEN’S JOURNEY: STRESS… WELL THAT’S NEW

So I've had a pretty interesting couple of weeks:  I purged my pants collection and only kept those pairs that made me feel fabulous.  I decided not to do a fitness show in lieu of eating well for health. I’ve been busy. It’s been exhausting, to be honest.  But I can’t believe how much I’ve learned in such a short time. The biggest lesson of this week was handed to me by Karen, our amazingly knowledgeable Holistic…

WHEN YOUR JEANS HOLD THE POWER: MAKING A FRESH START

"I hate my jeans."  Ever said that? I have big legs.  Always have.  “Solid”, or “strong” if you’re trying to be tactful, but big nonetheless.  Stocky is how I have always been built – I can see my chubby little legs powering me around in pictures of my childhood.  I stopped growing at 5’0”, around the time I turned 12.  My legs have never been long, graceful, or slim. As such, buying jeans and pants…

PAT’S PERSPECTIVE: HOW DO I KNOW WHAT KIND OF
TREATMENT TO GET?

So you've gone and hurt yourself, huh?  You’re a gung-ho weekend warrior with a twinge in your back and aren't sure what to do about it.  This isn’t unusual. We get all kinds of people coming through our doors who've injured themselves in brilliant and creative ways.

“T” TIME: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE BRAS!

Ladies ladies ladies! Let's talk about bras and how they support us, or don't.  They are meant to aid a beautiful part of our body!  However, I have been seeing a running theme in my practice lately and even out and about on the street.  Ladies, why are you wearing ill-fitting bras with absolutely no support? I hear all the excuses...”oh this is just my lazy day”, or “this is my bad bra”, or “my other…

MEL`S MEANDERING MASSAGE MIND: WOMEN CAN’T DO PULL UPS??

Women can’t do pull ups? I call shenanigans. “Why women can’t do pull ups.” This was the title of an article written in the New York Times. Since it made headlines two years ago it has been the topic of numerous articles by many different newspapers – all with slight variations of course, but the premise in each was the same: women are incapable of doing pull ups.  According to leading researcher Paul Vanderburgh that…

BAILEY’S BIG 3: THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
TISSUE HEALING

So you went over on your ankle. Now, a black and blue softball currently resides where your ankle used to live. It’s painful, swollen, hot and difficult to walk on. When is this going to get better?!

Yes, 8 weeks, give or take. I cannot…
