Places to Meditate

June 8, 2014 Health & Wellness  No comments

As a massage a massage therapist, I recognize the healing properties of massage, and therefore receive massages myself on a regular basis. Like many of you, I practice meditation, as well, for physical, mental and spiritual well being. I often enjoy reading articles on websites or periodicals about how to improve my meditation technique. I think it’s important to always try and improve our meditation practice by applying new techniques, or by increasing the quantity and quality of our meditations. Today, I want to have some fun and discuss some of the best, and worst, places to meditate.

My Top 5 Best Places to Meditate are:

The park – Be at one with nature. A park with fresh air, birds and a lake or stream can be the perfect place to center yourself through meditation.

The History of Massage Therapy

May 31, 2014 Health & Wellness  No comments

            The healing art of massage is known, through inscriptions, sculpture and writing, to have been employed at least 5,000 years ago, in locations such as China and India, and has probably existed much longer. Inscriptions inside Egyptian tombs dating back to this era also verify that massage is as ancient as recorded history itself.  Massage began as a healing art aimed at curing ailments of the body. However, as humans began to master their environment, massage began to be used as a preventative medical treatment and as a form of indulgence for the wealthy. Because massage was often a privilege of the elite during classical times, it lost its popularity among much of the general public for centuries. However, it has endured the test of time and reemerged to become more

Origin of the Word “Massage”

May 27, 2014 Energy HealingHealth & WellnessPet Stone MassageSonia AlexandraStone MassageWhat's New  No comments

Greetings Fellow Massage Therapists and Healing Enthusiasts,

The words we speak carry tremendous meaning, often more significant than we may even be aware of. Let us delve into the origin and meaning of the word “massage.”

 According to one Etymology dictionary, the English word massage is derived from the French word massage, meaning “friction or kneading.” The French may have borrowed the word massage from colonial India, where the Portuguese used the word amasser, or “to knead” from the Latin word massa, meaning “mass, dough.”  It also may derive from the Arabic word massa, meaning "to touch, feel, handle;"

Remember that you are a member of a select group of healers, who have been touching lives across the world since the

Make Sinus Pressure Melt Away

Back in March, 2013, The Huffington Post reported that the 2013 allergy season could be the worst yet due to climate changes.  Allergens effect 55% of the U.S. population according to webmd.com, so what is a person to do to keep a clean bill of health?  The answer varies from holistic approaches, home remedies, over-the-counter medications or prescribed medication.  Which method do you prefer?  Here's our favorites:
At-Home Sinus Remedies

Use a humidifier or vaporizer: Keeping your nasal cavities moist will allow them to drain.  If you dry out the membranes, they become more irritated!
Drink lots of fluids: Not only is this a good idea for the health of your skin and organs, but fluids thin the mucus and may help prevent your sinuses from blocking up.

How Crystals Can Help Heal Your Companion

August 5, 2013 Pet Stone MassageStone Massage  No comments

It may sound like a New Age fad, but stone and crystal healing has been part of Eastern science, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, for more than 5,000 years. Practitioners believe that by wearing a particular stone or enjoying a stone massage, our bodies (and those of our animals) can enjoy specific healing benefits.
How does Crystal Healing Work?
You’re probably wondering how a stone or crystal can possibly have any healing properties. The body’s cells transmit electrical signals that travel along nerves, carrying information to and from the brain and other organs. These signals tell the brain what the eyes see, what the ears hear and what the body feels. The brain returns these signals to their origin to dictate every move and response the body makes. Since the body is full of
