Top 5: How to Have a Better Massage

Getting a massage can be both therapeutic and relaxing. Massage allows for time to unplug, tune in, take some time for yourself. And if you're lucky enough to have a therapist that knows their stuff, you have the added bonus of fixing stuff while you're there. That being said, there are things you can do to make the massage experience better. Ready? Breathe After the therapist has left the room and you are comfortable on the…

Meet Your Therapist – Roy Cohen

Q:  How do you feel about massaging women? A:  Most of my clients are women. I feel that I’m able to give a good, therapeutic, intuitive massage. I’m not judgmental of women’s bodies; I treat all of my clients with the respect they deserve. Q:  And how about massaging men?

JEN’S JOURNEY: LEARNING FROM ACORNS

Husband Jamie and I took the kids wilderness camping at Algonquin Park a few weekends ago; it was their first time, and they loved it. When camping, one has a singular purpose: to survive.  There’s no luxury to camping in the wilderness, save for a decadent square of dark chocolate at the end of the evening, or a luxuriously dry pair of socks when your body is damp to the bone. We pushed on, canoed…

LISTENING TO THE LANGUAGE OF YOUR BODY

WELLNESS SPOTLIGHT: JESSICA KANSTRUP, FITNESS MODEL/PERSONAL TRAINER

I’m watching Jessica Kanstrup run a bootcamp class.  At first glance, the 26 year-old is an intimidating figure, even at 5’4”; she paces slowly back and forth across the studio stage in her black tights and red GoodLife Fitness shirt, stopwatch in hand, brow knitted, watching her crew of ladies sweat it out in their circuit.  It’s clear from the stern expression on her face that no one is going to slack off under her…

JEN’S JOURNEY: CREATING SPACE IN MY MIND WITH KARATE

I’m on a mission to “create space” in my head.  That was part of my homework when I had my nutritional consult with Karen, and I’ve been searching for it ever since. Meditation is the obvious choice for opening the mind, but meditation, it should be said, is like stabbing myself in the eye with a fork is not really my thing.  I can’t picture myself sitting cross-legged doing nothing but contemplating for any length…

JEN’S JOURNEY: THE COURAGE TO BE VULNERABLE

I’m standing naked in front of my full-length mirror. This is my exercise in exiting my comfort zone today, and boy, is it ever working. Having grown up in a rather liberated household, I’ve always been comfortable disrobing in front of others in a change-room, or around family. Disrobing in front of myself for the purpose of affirmation, however, seems terrifying by comparison. During yoga training this weekend, we spoke a lot about our comfort…

MMMM: LET IT GO – NOT THE FROZEN VERSION

Mel's Meandering Massage Mind: Let it go - not the Frozen version Pain - everyone gets it; and no one is left unscathed by its wrath. I've been thinking a lot about pain in the last few weeks, so it's fitting that Jen asked me to write about it and that the theme of this month is Letting Go. In the last little while, I've made some changes that have affected my life drastically. Granted, the…

JEN’S JOURNEY: MORE THAN JUST EXERCISE

Last night, I laced up my new sneakers and went for my first run of the season.  Here’s a snippet of my inner monologue: Oh wow. Amazing. These shoes feel so comfy; I can’t wait to tackle this run! Ugh. Definitely not moving as well as I did the last time I ran. It’s ok. Keep on trucking. It’ll improve. Ok I have a cramp. It’s probably time to take a br- what? It’s only…
