#funfactfriday Your body has enough iron in it to make a metal nail three inches long.
#protiptuesday Before you enter the massage room, most clinics will have you fill out an intake form. Open communication starts with this form and it is more than a glorified waiver. There are certain pathologies and conditions that may require your massage to be modified or canceled all together and the intake form is where you relay this information.
#funfactfriday An average person produces about 25,000 quarts of saliva in a lifetime, enough to fill two swimming pools.
#protiptuesday Post massage fatigue is possible after an intense massage, due to over stimulation of the nervous system. Remembering to hydrate and relax help to address this. Soreness as if you had an intense work out from inflammation one to two days after deep tissue massage is normal. If after three days you are still sore you should consider telling your therapist to ease up on the pressure. An epsom salt bath or soak at the spa or in a hot tub can ease the discomfort.

#funfactfriday A human baby has over 60 more bones than an adult.
#protiptuesday Don’t get off the massage table too fast. Fluids in your body have been moved and changing positions too quickly could make you dizzy. If super relaxed, try not to fall asleep after the therapist leaves - funny but it happens!
#funfactfriday Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour.
#protiptuesday Avoid eating a full meal for at least an hour before a having a massage treatment. Digestion uses energy - it takes work! And the reason you come in is to relax. Digestion can make being massaged a bit uncomfortable.
Just had to share this great review from a client of the clinic with all of you! "I found Michelle Adair a thorough professional and a registered therapist. She assesses the patient carefully and tailors the treatment based on the assessment. She explained in detail about the muscles she worked on and and prescribed a few exercises to be done daily at home to relax the troubled muscles. I strongly recommend her as a massage therapist."
#protiptuesday Ease occasional indigestion by sipping a cup of peppermint tea after your meal. Peppermint improves the flow of bile, which moves food through the digestive tract more quickly. Use peppermint with caution if you have acid reflux; it can make that problem worse.
#funfactfriday When you take a step, you are using up to 200 muscles.
#protiptuesday Keeping your social networks alive and well may help benefit your ticker over the long term. Social support has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, and people who do have heart attacks fare better if they are socially connected.
#funfactfriday Your heart can keep beating even if it is separated from your body because it has its own electrical impulse.
#protiptuesday If you suffer from dry eyes, up your seafood intake. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things. Research suggests that people who consume higher amounts of these fats are less likely to have dry eyes.
#funfactfriday Each day, your heart creates enough energy to drive a truck 32 km.
#protiptuesday It is common for clients to have trouble relaxing during a massage session. Some clients like to “help” their therapist by lifting their limbs or head. Don’t. If the goal of a session is to release tension in the muscles, contracting them to move them is extremely counterproductive. If your therapist asks you to perform an action, do so but move slowly and carefully.
#protiptuesday Your comfort is an integral part of the entire massage process. That is why you should only undress to a level that makes you comfortable. If anything during the massage makes you uncomfortable, being too warm or cold, tell your therapist. If a technique is too painful or if the pressure is too much, never take the “no pain, no gain,” mentality. Massage is most effective when it is working with the body, not against it. While structural or therapeutic massage may be a bit painful, it should never become more than therapeutic discomfort. Said another way, on a 1 to 10 scale, you never want it to get above a 5 or 6. Communication is key!
#protiptuesday Eat your stress away. Prevent low blood sugar as it stresses you out. Eat regular and small healthy meals and keep fruit and veggies handy. Herbal teas will also soothe your frazzled nerves. Eating unrefined carbohydrates, nuts and bananas boosts the formation of serotonin, another feel-good drug. Small amounts of protein containing the amino acid tryptamine can give you a boost when stress tires you out.
#funfactfriday Your nose can remember 50,000 different scents.
