Our bodies have the innate intelligence to heal themselves. Massage therapy can open the pathways to healing the interconnections of mind<>body<>emotions<>spirit<>social functioning and wellness. No longer elusive, the "fountain of youth", aging well, living joyfully, and even "aging backwards" can be ours. We have the ability to tap into our abundant wellness and strive each day for a body in balance. There are many daily actions that reset us and restore our wellness, including a regular therapeutic massage. Therapeutic massage and regular yoga practices are easeful and peaceful paths to abundant, radiant and joyful wellness.
Abundant Wellness is a Planet<>People<>Profit model business, which views each action through the lens of environmental consciousness and stewardship. Environmentally conscious practices include: *Re-purposed desk, artwork, frames and vases from Pawsibilities in Norway, Maine, which contributes to Responsible Pet Care: "fun shopping to help homeless pets". *Line-dried linens as often as the weather and I can tango; minimal dryer use. *Unscented laundry detergent and simple ingredients: baking soda, white vinegar, washing soda for laundry. *Organic lemons, herbs, and produce, as much as I can grow or access. *Recycling, minimizing wastes, and composting. *Allergies and sensitivities: I will do everything I can to accommodate your needs. *Please let me know if you know of other practices that I should include.
