Changes

Hello! It has been quite a while since I have posted anything here on the blog. Thankfully, I have been pretty busy with clients, though, and that is a good thing! Let me just catch you up on a few things. 

First of all, Nature's Elements just turned 4 years old on June 1. I can't believe how fast time has flown by! I was looking back at some of my earliest photos of the studio, remembering starting off with my massage table in one of the rooms and a single wicker chair and table in the reception area.

Giving Thanks!

Hello, Everyone! Well, it looks like Fall is finally going to make an appearance, and I could not be happier! Yes, the time change is going to take a few days to adjust to, but this cooler weather is so awesome!

Now that Halloween is over, my thoughts turn to Thanksgiving. I see everyone posting on Facebook all they have to be thankful for, and it causes me to reflect as well. I am so very thankful for everything in my life right now. I have my health, which is not something to take for granted. Early this year my roommate Taylor had a stroke that came seemingly "out of the blue".

Fall is on the way!

There is just something about September... Glimpses of Fall begin to appear. Fall is my absolute favorite season! After the heat and humidity of an Arkansas Summer, Fall energizes me. I love the cooler mornings, the leaves changing color, and yes, everything pumpkin! 

Speaking of pumpkin, I have some new products in that I am excited to try. For the fall, I am offering a special themed body treatment: the Pumpkin Body Glow and Wrap. The Glow and Wrap is a combination service that blends a body glow (a salt or sugar scrub) with a full body masque.

Come in and cool down with some cold stones

If you follow @NaturesElementsLR or my personal Facebook page, by now you have seen some my posts promoting COLD STONE MASSAGE. Now, everyone has experienced or heard of warm or hot stone massage--a great addition to any massage session to help with relaxation, blood flow, and accessing deeper tissues of the body (barring any contraindications to heat therapy, of course). Warm feels comforting to us. It soothes us and grounds us. But COLD?? Who wants to be cold, right? Well, let me take a few minutes to let you know about the benefits of cold therapy to your massage.

Hi, Everyone! Well, it looks like Summer is here! Even though there are a couple more days as far as the calendar goes, it certainly is HOT already! I know some really love the heat, but I am not one of them! For me, a great activity on a hot summer afternoon is a nice, long massage in a cool, softly lit room with soft music playing. Maybe add a few cool stones and some aromatherapy and I am in HEAVEN! If that sounds good to you, it's time for you to schedule your next massage!

I titled this post "Changes" because, well, that is what life is really about, right?

Here's the latest...

Hello! I know it's been quite a while since I last posted the blog. Life has a way of putting up obstacles sometimes. Lately, I have had several to deal with. But, it's time to let you know what's been going on here at Nature's Elements Massage!

So, first of all, we are about to celebrate ourTHIRD BIRTHDAY! WOW!I cannot believe it's been 3 years since I opened the door to my first clients here in my own space. So much has transpired since that day. We have grown, adding therapists and clients, we have added services, and we have continued to learn and grow in the field.

Happy New Year!

Here we are, entering into a new year in a few days. It seems that 2015 passed by so quickly for me. It was a good year, and I always look forward to each new year with anticipation and excitement about what may manifest. 

For me, I think this new year will be one of completion and one of new beginnings. I guess they all are when you get down to it. We are always finishing up some things in our lives (school, jobs, illness, etc) and starting new things (school, jobs, exercise, relationships).

New Next Week: Cold Stone Massage

By now, almost everyone has at least heard of Hot Stone Massage. You may know it by different names: La Stone Therapy, Warm Stone Massage--I do a technique called Healing Stone Massage. But with the heat climbing into the upper 90s and heat indices nearly at 110 degrees, warm or hot ANYTHING is probably far from your thoughts. I know that's true for me. 

That leads me to introduce my newest offering just in time for the "Dog Days of Summer": Cold Stone Massage. I have wanted to try this for some time, and I have used some cold stones mingled with the warm many times in the past.

Invest in your health with massage


Hi Eveyone! For this blog entry, I decided to copy an article from my newlettter database. So often, we think of massage as luxury, but regular massage has so many health benfits! Read on--

Invest in Your Health
Massage Offers Excellent Return on Investment


"Invest for the long term" is great financial advice, but it's also great healthcare advice. Never is investing for the long term more important than when you are making day-to-day decisions about your health. There are short-term gains from taking care of your health, to be sure, but the long-term benefits are not to be underestimated.

What's New?

Wow! I can't believe we are already well in to Spring. It's a beautiful day as I write this, and I intend to spend some of it outside this afternoon. One thing about Spring and massage (at least in my experience) is that business slows down for a few weeks. While I would love to be busy every single day, it is a nice chance to slow down and take a look around. It's the time of year I try to assess how things are going and where I would like to take the business.

Last spring, I incorporated Warm Bamboo massage into my menu.
