The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!
Why massage is necessary in these times!
The good is obvious; we are all under tremendous amounts of stress, hence the need for releasing tension, balancing and a relaxing type of massage.
The bad is not so obvious, when we don’t recognize the importance of self-care our bodies acknowledge we don’t care, and go on auto pilot. High blood pressure, weight gain, and allergies are just a few signs the body is over loaded!
The ugly is when our bodies try to adjust and self-regulate, full of tension and chaos, the body ever so slowly shuts down. Migraines, back spasms, heart disease, when we are laid up for days or maybe weeks, G-d forbid. Better to become aware and get a handle on the problem and nip it in the butt! Body Benefits has 1 -1 ½ hour massages that can physically align, emotionally balance, and ground you. Helping you be the most productive, loving individuals that you are!
The Elder Care program is launching this fall!
I’m so excited to share this new endeavor with you.
What is it? A program that meets the needs of our older population.
Why is it so important? Our elderly parents and friends have caretakers for everyday needs; dressing, changing and making meals. What they don’t have and lack is Basic Touch! The feeling that they belong to the human race and are loved.
Where does this massage occur? In their home where they feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. Diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia has them confused and unsettled; Joanne Freedman gives them nurturing and respect they deserve.
When does this massage occur? Day time scheduling is available. Fitting in with their routine!
How long are these appointments? 1 hour usually 1x week. Giving the client structure and something pleasant to look forward to. Body Benefits offers this service; a value that is immeasurable.
