Week of November 4, 2018
What’s Happening: Next week is Veteran’s Day. We will be closed for Veteran's Day. We will be open Tuesday, November 13th. Let us know how/if you observe Veteran's Day.
At the end of our blog, we talk about....well, talking during your massage. Should you or shouldn't you?
Fun Holidays this Week:
November 6: U.S. General Election Day – Have you voted?
November 7: Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day – Hmmm, kind of a strange holiday, but we like it.
November 10: Forget-Me-Not Day – Today is a day to remember friends and family we haven’t seen in a while. Reach out and let them know they’re not forgotten.
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:
Plum Lemon Water
3 plums, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
Add plums and lemon to a pitcher of water. Chill overnight and enjoy.
To Talk Or Not To Talk
Many clients wonder if they should talk during their massage. The answer is it’s totally up to you. Here are some things to think about:
· At the beginning of a massage treatment, it is beneficial to close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. This will help put you in a relaxed frame of mind so you get the most out of the experience.
· Some people want to use their treatment time to meditate and forget about their worries. Some people even fall asleep during a massage, which is a huge compliment! Never feel pressure to talk or chat. This is your time and our job is to make sure you leave feeling great.
· Some people like to use the time to connect and talking is a way of relaxing for them. If this is you, wonderful! We love getting to know our clients.
· Certain types of massage, such as deep tissue massage and sports massage, require more feedback because we're working on deeper layers of muscle and will want to ensure that the pressure is not uncomfortable. Sometimes clients feel like they will be insulting us if they speak up. However, that is never the case. We want to know if it is too intense.
