Please remember that, unless you are Military and are only here for training, you have to schedule at least 3 Massage/Healing Sessions with me a Year (so minimum of every 4 month). If you can't commit to that I cannot be your Massage Therapist/Healer, thank you for understanding.
Massage Therapy is NOT a Luxury; it is taking care of your own Health and well being!!!

Practicing Massage Therapy, or any Healthcare Profession, without a license is dangerous and illegal. A Massage Therapist that is offering Massage Therapy in an Office setting (Hair Salon, Chiro Office, Room rental etc) has to have both their Massage Therapy License (MA) and Massage Establishment License (MM). These Licenses have to be displayed at their Office!!!
You can verify a healthcare provider's license by going to:

Did you know that 99% of all Headaches are Posture related? Tight upper back and neck muscles cause nerve compression and lack of blood flow which leads to headaches.
This is a simple behind-the-back stretch. You can do it sitting or standing. If you're going to sit, make sure you have a chair with backing that comes halfway up your back. Hook your arms over the back of the chair and pull your shoulder blades together (if you're standing, assume the military
Now pull your shoulder blades together until you feel a pull in your shoulder joints. Don't go overboard - you don't want to cause any pain.
I want you to hold it for three full minutes (don't cheat and quit early because the length of this stretch is very important). Then slowly release the stretch.
I suggest you take breaks throughout the day to perform this stretch....it will help a lot!
See you soon

Why Doing Crunches or Sit-Ups Can Give You an Abdominal Pouch
According to Muscle and Fitness Magazine, if you want a lean, flat belly, the absolute worst thing you can do is force yourself to do sit-ups and crunches! Reason: Although sit-ups and crunches strengthen the rectus abdominus muscle, they also lengthen the transverse abdominus (girdle)muscles, causing your lower abdominals to pouch.
But that’s not all. Crunches and sit-ups can push your head out of alignment and cause tension in your shoulders. They can also damage your spine. Practice chin retractions and navel pulls each day. This will stretch the posterior neck musculature and work the transverse abdominus. This will help stabilize and decompress the spine. Try to hold each one for 5 seconds and do 15 repetitions twice a day.
