  1. Communicating with Your Massage Therapist

    I’ve worked in the spa and massage industry for close to a decade now, but I’ve been a massage client for much longer than that. This has given me an interesting blend of industry-client experience, a view of things from both sides of the aisle if you will. In turn, I’m often asked by my non- Read more
  2. Last-Minute Holiday Gifts for Those Spa-Going Friends

    Have a spa-lover in the family? Me too. A couple, in fact.

    The holidays are in the air—and with them, stress is in the air. Unless you are somehow super human—and I most certainly am not—you are likely already beginning to feel the crunch.

  8. Searching Out the Perfect Massage: What “Perfect” Really Means

    Today is September 11th, 2013. In fairness, I probably won’t get this blog up for several days, but today’s date has had an effect on me, and it’s an effect that I don’t want to gloss over. Driving into the office this morning, I remembered the deep pit that sat in my stomach as I watched Read more
  9. Massage: Why You Must (and How You Can) Fit It in Your Busy Schedule!

    Occasionally my friends joke that I must have cloned myself if I’m able to fit a weekly massage in my schedule. Ethics aside, I sometimes think it wouldn't be a terrible idea to clone myself.
