To give yourself the benefits of a monthly massage?
Many of you set goals for your body in January. Most people abandon those goals by the middle of the month. Is this loving to yourself? So many people have disappointing Valentine’s days and don’t have someone to love them and give them a Valentine signifying their love.
On Valentine’s day, I had a client bring in her daughter and treat both of them to a relaxing evening of spa and massage treatments. She said she was going to make it an annual Valentine tradition. Sometimes it’s best to love yourself first and then share the love with others.
Show yourself that your health, well-being, and relaxation are a way of loving yourself.
Join my Monthly Massage Club. It is a way to love yourself every month. I offer a $15. Discount off the normal price of $70, to make caring for yourself affordable.
When I started business in 1989 I charged $55. Now with 28 years experience this is a steal!
If you join in February you can get the first massage for $45.00 –a $25. Discount. All massages after that will be $55 per month for an hour massage.

Increases circulation and the removal of cell waste
Relieves pain and increases mobility
Increases lymphatic circulation to reduce swelling and increase overall health

Enhanced sleep quality
Research Shows That With Massage:

Even though you may be receiving chiropractic care, you are not obligated to see their massage therapists on staff.Legally you have the right to choose the massage therapist you want.Don’t be pressured into seeing someone with less experience when you already have a massage therapist to work with. I have 28 years injury massage experience.

Interesting Facts: There are more than 500 varieties of eucalyptus trees in Australia around 15 of these are made into essential oils. The trees grow up to 300 feet tall. Eucalyptus is one of the strongest natural antiseptics. In Australia it’s known as Gully Gum or gum trees. A blue haze rises from the mountains in the Australian bush where the trees grow prolifically. The haze is so obvious that the mountains were named the “Blue Mountains”. The haze is caused by droplets of essential oil that fill the air with fragrance. Unfortunately because of the volatility of the oil it increases the fire hazard as well.
Koalas and gliders are the only mammals which can tolerate the toxins in eucalyptus leaves. A Koala baby called a joey feeds on milk first for around 6 months then it has to develop a tolerance for and the ability to digest the toxins in eucalyptus leaves. The mother passes on the necessary micro-organisms through a special form of her droppings. (poop) which give the joey what it needs to digest the leaves. It will eat the mother’s droppings for about a month before it emerges from the pouch and starts eating leaves on its own.
