Do One Thing Everyday That Makes You Happy

Transformation begins with a choice.  This is my motto.  Your life is the result of your choices.  Massage is a tool which you can embrace into your life to help you feel better in many ways.  It is not a quick fix or a band aid.  You cannot expect to reverse all your body issues with just one hour of massage once or twice a year.  While you will feel better in one hour, in about 3-4 days, if you are not changing anything in ...

Transformation begins with a choice.  This is my motto.  Your life is the result of your choices.  Massage is a tool which you can embrace into your life to help you feel better in many ways.  It is not a quick fix or a band aid.  You cannot expect to reverse all your body issues with just one hour of massage once or twice a year.  While you will feel better in one hour, in about 3-4 days, if you are not changing anything in your life your life will not change.  You will still be working as much sitting or standing with bad posture, feeling stressed from your work deadlines and hectic family schedule.  Who is taking care of you in all this?  Why are you feeling so stressed? Are you finding you hold your breathe at times?  Focus on your breathe for 2 full minutes.  Inhale with each breathe more deeply and letting the exhale flow.  Just breathing can be a tool to help you relax when you feel day to day hour to hour stress.  The more you are regularly massaged you feel how it makes a difference in your life.  Then you realize how it is not just a luxury but a necessity just like breathing.  Because we are human and since babies we have needed the necessity of touch to survive.  It just makes sense.  Massage is a great way to reduce your stress level.  When you sit at a desk 40 hours a day with little movement your fascia becomes sore from so much restriction of non-movement.  When you stand for many hours your lower back region also becomes very compressed with pressure making your back very sore and achy feeling.  Your body is all connected.  You are not just your back.  The way you feel has a great measure on how your mood prevails.  Taking an active choice to take responsibility for your life is acquiring tools that enable you to make better choices.

I remember an Electrical Engineering Professor by the name of Dr. McGinn talking about how in life we cannot do our jobs without certain tools.  He said tools make your job easier, but when you don't have them life is more difficult.  His philosophy and lecture on having proper tools will never leave my mind.  Often I think back to this lecture when thinking of massage and how some only get a massage once a month or year.  As a student studying Electrical Engineering I became a perfectionist and concerned with details as well as the whole picture.  We as humans are also made up of electrical components and energy.    Hopefully, this tidbit of info enables you to see how Electrical Engineering and Massage Therapy to me are similar.  I relate to your desk jobs and deadlines.  I also have a family which is made up of doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and police officers.  So I know and have compassion for that entire realm as well as the stay at home CEO Mom who does it all.  You will find my knowledge to be vast, and that I am always learning something new.  I also have extraordinary compassion and understanding of pain issues.  Pain is so hard for many, because while you make look normal you cannot see someone else's physical pain.  I am very sensitive to this fact.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Master, I take delight in seeing you smile again.  I provide knowledgeable, relaxing massage.  I keep talking to a minimum.  I listen to what your needs are and then I customize my massage to your expectations.  I respect your boundaries.  I am happy and love what I do.  I want you to be happy too.  The best thing about this career is seeing you come in excited to receive massage when you have had a trying day.  Maybe I could see the exhaustion or irritability on your face.  Soon like a balloon you feel the weight of life lift and happily talk or rest as you realize how you are feeling better.  When you are ready to go back to life out the door I see you are smiling.  Just knowing you will spread happiness to your family with your lovely smile gives me joy.  You feel ready to go back to work the next day and conquer your careers.  This is what I see when my clients leave and is my wish for you,

So have your transformation begin today.  Make your appointment now.  You matter.

REVIEWS for my Spa or Bodywork services

by Angelita on Sep 17
Angela is just amazing! She is a true professional. The massage was fantastic, she asks through out how are you and if you need more or less pressure. I felt so incredibly relaxed and my muscles were looser and definitely less tension in my body. She also gave me great tips to follow at home and work life to handle stress better. Just go see her!

It was a great massage! I am in a little pain today in a couple of areas. I’m sure this will subside by tomorrow. I look forward to my next massage with Angela! She was just the right mix of everything you are looking for when you schedule a massage and I felt very comfortable. Kelly

She was very thorough at the beginning and asked a lot of questions so she knew what areas to concentrate on. Also suggested a lot of stretches and things to do to ease the pain throughout my work day.

Angela did a wonderful job with my massage and stretching my legs. The only input I had was Angela knew I was there because I am training for a marathon yet in the first 10 minutes of my massage, she went on about how bad running is for people. That just threw me off a little and was somewhat irritating.
