Say GoodBYE to Tension with STRETCHING!
We oftentimes don't realize HOW much tension our bodies hold... until that tension isn't there anymore! Through various modalities like massage, cupping, and STRETCHING, we're able to begin to release some of that stagnant energy that manifests as physical tension in the body.
Benefits of Assisted Stretching, or Assisted Myofascial Neuromuscular therapy include:
- Increased flexibility
- Relaxed muscles
- Improved posture
- increased circulation throughout the body
This is why we are SO excited to be offering private stretching therapy sessions with Peter. These sessions strive to leave you with the knowledge and skills for a healing and targeted stretching routine. Watch here to learn more from Peter himself!
Contact Peter for a Session.
Therapeutic Sports Massage
Another way to take care of your healthy being is with a therapeutic sports massage. Summer tends bring increased physical activity. Our body needs to re-balance all the output of energy and exertion with nourishing input that comes from massage. Our therapeutic sports massage is designed to release tension and restore blood flow. The added benefits of sports massage include restoration of energy and soothing healing touch.

The Reality of Suffering by Stephanie
Last week I wrote about being in control. I talked about taking more responsibility for what we can control (our actions/behavior) and not worrying so much about the thoughts and emotions that arise, which are beyond our control.
What are you noticing?
This week I write about the reality of suffering.
Suffering is one of our greatest teachers. Much of our suffering comes from living in fear / wanting to control.
More suffering happens as we continue to resist what is.
This topic is broad. I will try and keep it simple by asking you to consider 2 questions over the next week as you live your daily life.
Remember, living life is a practice and can be the most powerful portal for spiritual awakening, growth ...and freedom.
1. Is this suffering I am experiencing self made?
2. Is this suffering I am experiencing part of life?
How will you know?
For question #1, self made suffering is a result of our thoughts and emotions and the inner narrative/story we replay over and over. Thoughts feeds emotion and emotion feeds thought and before we know it, this cycle of suffering becomes a way of life. This inner narrative, often a part of our dysfunctional mental conditioning over years, keeps us regretting the past and worried about the future.
The result? We remain stuck in the present, which is in direct opposition to "how life works" and quite frankly why we were born. Life only takes place in the present. Life itself requires us to keep moving. We can choose to move, or life will move us on its own terms.
Please note: I am not saying to discard the lessons of the past. Nor am I saying to leave the future open to some woo woo practice of intention setting without action.
What I am saying...is what I always say...take responsibility for your life. Your choices. Where you are. Where you want to go. And by all means, take small daily actions to move you along.
For question #2, part of life's inevitable suffering is the pain we feel from loss of a loved one, an illness, tragedy, etc.
If this writing resonates, perhaps you will keep a journal and at the end of each day, spend a few minutes reflecting the 2 questions.
I am with you my friends.
Summer comes with a huge surge of outdoor activities: tennis, biking, jogging, hiking, volleyball, golf, paddle boarding... Great for your health? Yes! But when taken on by storm, they often come with a price: think tennis elbow, shin splints, back pain…
Massage can help.
Tennis elbow, for instance,(a form of tendonitis caused by repetitive and stressful use of the tendons and muscles of the wrist) is helped by increasing blood flow to the area.
Shin splints(brought on by overuse of weak leg muscles or ill-fitting shoes) are greatly relieved by massage on not only the leg, but the feet and ankles as well.
Then again, just the fact that it’s summer is the only excuse you need to book a massage!
