So in this weeks posting I’d like to comment a little bit on training for activities such as running, biking, swimming, or whatever you fancy. It never seizes to amaze me at how our bodies function as a unit to endure short or even long physical activities. I’ve had the opportunity over the past few years working with various athletes either prepping for their competition, after or for some (unfortunately) it could be from injury. To get in the mindset and fully understand what people go through a friend of mine has convinced me to do my 1st ever triathlon. It’s crazy to see how much training is involve to get yourself ready this kind of event. As I’ve been training over the last few weeks massage has been a critical component to my training regiment. I mean think about it. Have you ever ran and the muscles around your shin area start to cramp up. Not fun right? NO! So why not try to keep your muscles as loose and free from restrictions as possible. I love massage (and I’m not just saying this because I’m a massage therapist) and to feel the difference after getting a treatment when I continue my training is awesome; sometimes I feel like I’m running on a cloud!! I’m a big believer in finding that happy medium for whatever suits each person whether it’d be massage, PT, chiropractic care, acupuncture, yoga…etc. All of these modalities can provide people, whether an athlete or not, with another outlet or form of therapy to help the body maintain that happy balance as a whole. 2 1/2 more weeks till the big day of the Triathlon. Should be fun so stay tuned!!!
Mother’s day is right around the corner and wouldn’t you love love love to show her how awesome she is? Well you’re in luck because massage is the gift that keeps on giving. Please see my contact page if you are interested in scheduling an appointment or ordering a gift card.
Once again we are at it this year Volunteering at the Boston Marathon. What a georgous day for the runners. All of the therapists that I volunteer with are so happy to be here and lend a hand (literally) treating any runners that opts for a massage after their 26.2 mile run. We are located in the Basement of the John Hancock building and seriously how much better can it get to know that its FREE!! We are all so excited this year for all of the runners and can’t wait to see you guys after the event. Have fun and be safe!
BOSTON STONG BABY!!!
Well Valentines Day is right around the corner and if your a last minute shopper like myself why not make it easy for yourself this year and book your loved one a massage (this will for sure win you brownies points let me tell you!). Please contact me any time via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (781-519-9444).

Have you thought about what to do or give your Dad for fathers day? Are you a last minute person like me just waiting for the perfect idea to pass you along the way during your travels? Why not offer him the gift of massage to relax and unwind. Please call me for more details.
Good day everyone! I just wanted to make note of a couple of things happening. The first is that this year myself and as well as some of my fellow graduates from Bancroft will be Volunteering at the Boston Marathon for Pre and Post Event Massage. If anyone is interested in receiving massage in conjunction with their training please feel free to call me as we could come up with a treatment plan to meet your needs to keep those muscles loose before and during your event. In addition at the end of the Summer we’ll also be doing Post massage for the riders of the Pan Mass Challenge at Mass Maritime Academy. The great thing about the volunteering is that it’s free for you and it gives us (the Massage Therapist) an opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people at both of these events. I’m currently working 2 days a week for a Health Club (no you do not need a membership to receive massage when booking an appointment), while 1 day a week I offer home visits to make it more convenient for others. The other announcement, which was just noted, is that I’ve just began to offer home visits for people. I know how busy life can get or maybe there is a reason you couldn’t leave your home due to IE an injury. I’d be more than happy to explain and work out the logistics of this if anyone is interested. Again feel free to contact me if you would like to work together or if you have any questions. If you think someone would benefit from this please feel free to forward them my information as well.
Have a great day everyone!
Who takes care of the people who tend to our loved ones when they are
sick, or are suffering from an ailment other than sickness such as
surgery or injuries? Doctors, nurses, family members, friends,
assisted living personnel, etc. At first it may seem easy pending the
situation but as time progresses it may feel a little overwhelming.
Take the example of a person who has to tend to a family member who is
very sick. The sick person may be getting treated for their ailment but who takes care of the caretakers??? To help other people sometimes it means that you need to take care of yourself during the process. You could treat yourself to a swedish massage treatment which helps to relax a person, or even seek out other things such as acupuncture or yoga. From a massage therapist stand point I try to make it appoint to seek regular massage treatments to balance out the work load of clients whom I work on. There are no set of standards as
to how much and how often you should do these alternative forms of therapy, but I will say it pends on how much you are doing and when YOU feel like you need it to maintain that happy balance in your life.
