The little place with low rent where you do everything yourself is the romantic ideal. And it is what most good therapists do, whether they’re counselors, massage therapists, acupuncturists...

If I have a mission as a therapist, it's to encourage people to explore their own bodies. It's a variation on the theme that I keep returning to: to dwell in our lives, instead of camping in them. Applied to the body, it's live in this body, here, now, not the perfect body we ought to have or will have...

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.

The Need for Compassionate Touch

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. Many elders are affected by debilitating illness or injury and require the assistance of a care setting to help manage their everyday lives.
