Keeping hydrated is an important part of staying healthy. Water promotes cardiovascular health, keeps your body cool, helps muscles and joints work better and keeps skin supple. Here is this week’s hydration recipe:
Peach Apricot Water
1 peach, sliced
1 apricot, sliced
1 small lime, sliced
Add peach, apricot and lime to a pitcher of water. Chill for 4-6 hours to infuse the flavors.
Rochester Therapeutic Massage
I have worked with people with disabilities since I was 18 years old, my first job! The moment that I truly realized that I wanted to be a massage therapist was when I accompanied a woman from the group home I worked in, on a vacation weekend. She had a time booked at a spa for a massage. It was amazing watching the massage therapists make this woman feel special. They made sure that anything she needed, she had, not just physically but mentally as well. The massage had wonderful therapeutic effects for weeks afterwards. It was then that I decided that I wanted to be able to have an effect on people like that. It took me a while to get to the point that I could go to school, but I made it! I attended the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage here in Rochester from September 2016 to December 2017. I took the leap into business ownership with two of my classmates, Laura Aikens & Karen Reyes, in April 2018. I would love the opportunity to work with you.
