Poshy Self-Care

It’s a beautiful overcast morning! I hear birds singing, wind blowing, and rain *almost* breaking through the clouds. I have the house to myself for a bit before I go to the office. I am enjoying the natural silence. Relaxing. Recharging. Preparing for my day. More self-care talk. My self-care has changed a bit the last few months. I’ve switched…

Primer Complete

The walls are primed! Whew! Primer is not easy to apply, especially when you aren’t good at DIY stuff. Paint is purchased. It’s a muted, beautiful Medici Gray. If you want to see it, you’ll have to make an appointment for massage 🙂 The renovation and decoration will not be complete by opening day. All paint will be done, but…

Remodel, Day 2

Another hour, another step accomplished! One and 1/4 walls primed for paint. Not too bad for someone who doesn’t do DIY well. What I’ve done: Gathered paint swatches to ponder Primed 1 1/4 walls Got totally addicted to a podcast, “Homecoming.” It’s a psychological thriller. * Learned I can only handle Kilz about an hour at a time. * I…

New Room!

A new location means a new massage space. Last night I started the official remodel! I decided to chronicle this process on the blog. I’ll share with you each new thing that happens in the space upgrade. Wednesday, April 5, 2017: Painter’s tape applied. Kilz, rollers, and floor covering placed in floor. Ladder elegantly angled for ease of use. End…

Guess who is back in the massage business? ME! After 2 years home with the baby and pre-teen I am officially working again. My office has moved to T’Zers Family Hair Care in Paris, Arkansas. I’m in town 🙂 What is different: Location in town Paper appointment book, no online schedule No automatic email reminders (but I can text you…

The Morning Rush

I don’t know about you but mornings are HECTIC  at my house. Things start out quietly, with gentle singing to wake my 8-year-old. Once the whole house is awake, cats and all, it can feel like a riptide slowly dragging me away from shore. These rushed mornings set us up for a stressful day. “Every minute counts!” I say this countless times!…

It’s Random Acts of Kindness Week!

February 9 starts International Random Acts of Kindness Week. Their website is packed with great ideas on how to celebrate, and I especially love the approach of committing a random act of kindness for three different people: Someone you don’t know Someone you know Yourself   Someone you don’t know This is pretty simple and can quickly become a habit….

Laughter (a poem)

Laughter seeps through the walls intermittently sliding ‘neath the door, Serenading the unheard story unraveling in a distant room. Laughter caps the ocean wave sounds blending with soft music as quiet breaths rise and fall inside an envelope of sheets and blankets and warmth. Laughter quietly accentuates it does not interrupt. An audible smile is catching, Contagiously flowing from room…

An Open Letter to My Massage Clients

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist for almost 12 years. 12 years, y’all! It’s gone by so fast! Some days I feel like a seasoned veteran of my profession while other days I feel as if I know nothing and never did. Something I love about massage therapy is that there is ALWAYS something to learn, read about, analyze…

The 60 Minute Massage

The 60 Minute Massage is, by far, the most popular service I offer. People choose an hour for a variety of reasons. Budget, schedule, physical needs, etc. Why an hour? I had a big post planned out to talk about money, schedules, and such but I scrapped it just now. Talking about why we *can’t* get massage isn’t as fun…
