Easy Giving for Really Great Living

  We’re already into Hanukkah! Mere days from the solstice! One week from Christmas! How’s that holiday shopping going? This year, give the gift of peace, an hour of quiet, the soothing of aches and pains, compassionate touch. Massage gift certificates are at the top of my holiday list this year. Are they on yours? Do you know somebody who could use…

Grateful/When Was the Last Time?

Grateful Long ago, in a land far away (OK, right here, a bit before Thanksgiving), I drafted a post about body gratitude, asking readers when they last took the time to thank their bodies for carrying them through life. I didn’t post it. I wanted to add something. Not sure quite what, but I was inspired by a yoga class I took months…

The Good Person Massage Giveaway

  As mentioned in my previous post, next week is EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week. It’s an event that’s been going on since 1995, with the dual purposes of telling people about the benefits of massage and bringing massage to more people. Thinking about the idea that every body deserves a massage gets me thinking about things like accessibility and…

Next Week: EveryBody Deserves a Massage!

Next week is EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week! Massage therapists across the country are pulling together to talk about the benefits of massage and to bring massage to more people. Because massage is great, and all bodies deserve it. In the spirit of accessibility and celebration of community embodied by this event, I’ll be doing 3 things.   1) Sliding…

Touch Matters

I mentioned a family situation last month, and I’ve been a little out of commission for a while, but now I am back. I was traveling to be with my Grandma at the end of her life. Thank you for bearing with me. I’ve written a bit about the experience elsewhere. My grandma has since passed away. There will always…

Closed This Week

Due to a family emergency, I’ll be traveling this week. Sorry to miss Mother’s Day with you lovelies! I won’t be here in person, but I will be available by phone and email to meet your gift certificate needs via PDFs and the wonder of the internet. Drop me a line or stop by the studio for a Sacred gift card.

For the Mamas

It’s May, you guys! 10 days until Mother’s Day, plenty of time to celebrate the mother figures in your life with the gift of massage. Some nurturing for the nurturers. It’s a natural fit. This month, I celebrate all the mamas out there with their kickers and screamers, the godmothers and aunties who may or may not be related by…

What’s Cooking

I’ve been working on some new things over here. Exploration. Self-care. More yoga, more self-massage, buoyed by some old-fashioned book learning and anatomy review. A commitment to bringing all you lovely people better tools to feel amazing. I am not 100% certain what it will look like at the end (it’s all still cooking, a new project in its early…

I wanna be your cupid

It’s no secret that I love Valentine’s Day and always have. It all started when I was little and my mom would make heart-shaped egg in a hole for breakfast. That little whole wheat sliced bread heart, kissed in butter in the cast iron pan, only came around once a year. At school, there was the exchange of cards and…
