Trigger Point Self-Care
It is possible and worthwhile to treat your own trigger points. The Ther-a-Cane and Backbuddy are two commercial products designed to treat trigger points. You can also use a tennis (or other slightly soft) ball, or your hands. Experiment to find what’s most comfortable for you, and use the resources listed below to learn effective, safe techniques. Foam rollers can help relieve trigger points, but are often not specific enough for full relief.

Massage During Cold & Flu Season
It's the time of year when there always seems to be something "going around" - fever, runny noses, coughing, sneezing... you know what I mean. Here are a few important things to know about massage and colds and flu.
Massage could be your secret weapon to help prevent colds and flu.
1. Be as receptive and open to the massage process as possible.
2. Don’t eat a large meal just before a massage session. Let your body digest your meal first.
3. Be on time. If you arrive in a frenzied, rushed state, it may take longer to relax.
Recently, I saw a post on Facebook by someone looking for recommendations for a massage therapist. She and her husband do physically demanding work and want to add massage to their self-care routine. Immediately thought “Pick me! Pick me!” and posted all the reasons I’m a wonderful therapist.
