Hi <<First Name>>,

That little groundhog must never be trusted! We hope you’re keeping warm and healthy as winter continues to roll along.
Self-Care Class
Looking for a unique, good-for-you Saturday night? Learn something new and break up your routine. Pam will be teaching Part 1 of her Self-Care Workshop on March 9th from 7pm-9pm. (Part 1: Upper Body, Part 2: Lower Body.)

We will focus on ailments of the upper body: headaches, pain and stiffness, weaknesses, postural issues, TMJ, headaches, treating tendinitis and more! In this class you will have an opportunity to try out many self care tools and learn effective ways to care for yourself between massages. Pam will show you how to rebalance your muscles, reduce pain and administer self massage as well as guide you through stretches and strengthening to keep your upper body feeling it’s best. Each class is $40 and class size is limited. Please email to register for this class. Part 2 (lower body) will be on April 20th. If you’d like to sign up in advance for both classes, the total fee is $65 (instead of $80).
We often hear questions about whether or not it’s okay to crack your joints. The latest research shows no correlation between arthritis and cracking your knuckles, back, neck, ankles, etc. If a joint has been injured, (ie. ankle sprain) it’s likely cracking will occur more frequently. The sound comes from either a ligament snapping over a bone or the synovial fluid in a joint capsule being released as a gas when space is made in the joint. If pain-free cracking occurs from general movement or stretching, there is no need to be concerned. Forced movement should never be performed to achieve a crack, try slow stretching instead. If this doesn’t provide the relief you need, massage will reduce tension in muscles attaching to the bones and may allow them to realign. If that doesn’t do the trick, many seek the help of a Chiropractor. Drop us a line if you’d like a good referral.
