Natural healing

Hi, Everyone! I know I say this every time I post, but it has been quite a while this time. Every time I sit down to write, I either get interrupted, sidetracked, or just can't get my thoughts organized enough to write a post. But, here I am, taking another shot at it. 

I have been thinking about Spring lately.  Spring, by its nature, is about renewal. It comes after the "dead of winter" and brings new life. The new buds on trees and flowers, baby birds, etc. It is like the planet is waking up after a long nap.

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.

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).

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 kind of massage is this?"

Many clients throughout my years of practice have asked me "What kind of massage is this?" My best answer is "MIne." I don't really know how to classify my "technique". I use several different modalities, from basic Swedish (the "classic" massage you think of, with the gliding strokes and smooth transitions), to deep tissue. I throw in a little reflexology, maybe a dash of CranioSacral, sprinkle a few trigger point releases in there...kind of like if my take on a recipe.
