Massage & Bodywork


by Glen Beckel

Recently I've come across a few articles on the negative effects sitting has on your body. Most notably "Sitting is Killing You". The graphic has some startling information we should all be aware of. With 9.3 hours a day are spent on average sitting. That's a lot considering we're suppose to be awake for 16 hours, so well over half our day is spent doing little or no physical effort and probably for many not much of the other 7 hours are spent doing much physical activity. With obese people sitting for an extra 2.5 hours a day...

Massage & Bodywork


by Silvia Casabianca

A few years ago, I woke up with an excruciating pain in my lower back. Although it was a very limiting pain, I was sure that as soon as I started moving around it would disappear.

Massage & Bodywork


by David Burrows

by Ann Catlin

The need for compassionate care of our elders is growing. In the United States, people 85 years and older make up the fastest growing segment of our population. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, by 2030 there will be 71.5 million adults over age 65 in the United States.
