It’s been nearly four years since I had that other job. You might remember, I spent many years in the residential structural design business. People say massage couldn’t be further from houses. Everyday as a therapist, I am reminded the two are truly similar. You say your door doesn’t close without thudding against the door frame? Chances are the door frame isn’t square anymore due to other stresses it had to endure. [ 204 more words. ]

The ALS #IceBucketChallenge raises money and awareness to the neurological disorder also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. They've raised much more this year than before... I've been challenged by a few folks, and I am challenging some of the teachers in my school.
Being a muscle guy and a well-being guy, I am pretty interested and have seen the effects first hand.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.
So, donate... douse yourself with a bucket of ice water and spread the word, or better yet... do both!
On Tuesday evening at 6:30, August 12th, we will be teaching a massage class geared toward the community. This month, we will be discussing hand and forearm massage.
Typically, we spend a little time showing massage techniques that do not require as well as techniques that do. We also spend just a little bit of time talking about various lotions and oils.
Our class is once a month on the second Tuesday. This will introduce you to massage without overwhelming you. The price is $15 for one person, or $25 if you want to bring a friend.
Our class is located at "The Garden - Park Hill", 3435 Albion St - Denver - 80207.
We hope to see you there!
Extremely interesting article:
io9.com Fascia is a web of fibrous tissue that permeates the body, but is it really the "Cinderella Tissue" that new age therapists, Rolfers, and yoga instructors suggest? The fascial system is still a medical mystery. But that could soon change, thanks to an unlikely alliance between researchers and altern…

Today in class, we learned about "The Angle of Louis"...
It's the joint between the manubrium and the sternum (think chest plate)... any who.. This Louis (pronounced louie) was a French Surgeon circa 1750.
He also happen to design the prototype for a machine once known as "louisette"... but is know called... the guillotine!!!

Water cooler conversation of the day: Bathe like an Egyptian - milk and honey bath.
1 - 2 cups milk (full fat works best)
1/2 cup honey
Combine honey and milk in warm running water of bath tub. Sit back, relax, and imagine being fanned by huge palm leaves.
Somebody let me know how well it works!
[03/28/14] Fun Fact: In 460 BC, Hippocrates wrote "The physician must be experienced in many things, but assuredly in rubbing"
Fun Fact: Swedish Massage has nothing to do with Sweden. A Dutch massage therapist, Johann Georg Mezgar gave French names to massage strokes while working on royalty. Somehow, Swedish physical therapist Peter Henri Ling got all the credit.
And if you go to Sweden and ask for the massage that is popular in that country? You'll get a Thai Massage.
