Plantar Fasciitis

People ask what is Plantar Fasciitis?   Well it is a condition caused by repeated microscopic injury to the plantar fascia of the foot.   

How is it recognized? 
It is acutely painful after prolonged immobility.  Then the pain recedes but comes back with extended use.  It usually feels bruiselike and can also have  sharp pain usually in the heel and arch of the foot. And it is usually painful to walk on.

Does Massage Therapy Help?  
Yes Bodywork can help release tension in deep calf muscles, (such as the Gastrocnemius and the Soleus) that put strain on the plantar fascia;  it can also help to affect the quality of collagen at the site of the injury.  

So don't sit around just hurting, give us a call and let us help get you out of pain...

New March 18, 2013 Classes Now Starting

I wanted to let everyone know that we are starting a new night class on March the 18th.  The classes will be held on Monday and Tuesday nights and having one Saturday class a month and that class is usually on the first Saturday of the Month.  As I sit here today working on the calendar for this class, I am already getting excited for the class to start.  I always look forward to meeting all of the new people that are ready to make a wonderful career change into a field that is truly amazing.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't feel truly blessed to be in a profession that I truly love. Hopefully one day our paths will cross and you too can feel the same way.  

Day Class Starts February 20, 2012

      Now is the time to start getting ready for February 20, 2012 classes.  Those who pay tuition in full one month before class starts will recieve a Massage Table.  Our tuition cost is $6800.00 which covers all text books, school shirt, and creams and oils that will be used during class time.  You can sign up now and start paying on your tuition before class starts.  This will help those who are on a tight budget.  This class maybe full before February gets here, so call today and reserve your space!   

CEU Class Starting Soon!

Native Hot Stone & Ethics class to begin August 12-14, 2011.  This 3 day class will give you 21 hours of Continuing Education needed for Massage Therapist.   The Class cost is $365.00.  If paid before class date its only $300.00.  So if your needing CEU hours this will be a good time to get it. 

Learning The Bones Today!

2nd day of school.  Now I wished I had paid attention in school!  Trying to name some of these is tuff!  Words like obturator foramen, anterior superior iliac spine, just to name a few, but it was fun with the class and the instructor. The body is wonderfully made.   

First Day of School

Wow! I never thought we would be learning massage on the first day of school.  Started learning the 5 different massage strokes.  We all were massaging today learning the Effleurage stroke.  Of course started out learning to drape the client. Yea, a little nervous, but I made it. 

Evening Classes will start in September!!!

Time To Sign Up!

There is still time to sign up and send in your application for the July 18 classes.  Remember the future you hold is in your own hands. 
Thanks to all who have called, e-mailed and are starting our upcoming classes.

Getting Excited

We are so excited that the school is getting ready to start and we have students that are signed up and ready to go.  We did have to push the date out to the 18th of July, so we could have time for students to get all their paperwork done.  But we are ready now.  If you are interested, please get in touch with us so we can get you signed up and ready to start.  I remember like it was yesterday when I started to massage school.  I was so excited that I couldn't hardy wait for the day to come that we started.  It was so much more than I ever dreamed of.  I couldn't believe all that I had to learn.  Anatomy, Pathology, Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy, etc. etc.  I thought how would I ever learn all of that?  But when you are learning something that you really want to know it seems like you are just a sponge and you soak in all that they have to teach you.  Not only did I learn how to give a massage, but learned a lot about myself and about the body.  The neat thing about it, is that I keep learning every day.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made, because I sure LOVE LOVE LOVE my job.  And you can to!!!!!!

Priceless - Funniest Visit Ever

Years ago, our daughter received an injury at cheerleading practice.  She was taken to the emergency room immediately.  While I sat there, Renee was talking to the Doctor about what could be the problem.  The Doctor had such an arrogants about him that it was terrible.  He kelp talking to us like we were so stupid about even the simplest things.  We both let him rattle on and on.  As you know most of the time at the emergency room you have your worst cloths on.  So he said, I think she tore this muscle, showing on the shoulder area.  Renee had had enough of his sarcasm.  She said,  this muscle attaches to that area.  She started calling out all the muscles and their attachments in the area.  The Doctors face was PRICELESS!!  his eyes bulged out, and his jaw hit the floor!! I had to get out of the room, laughing so hard.  You could tell he had forgotten most of this.  It was so funny...Believe it or not, he was very polite after that.  

Who Loves To Be In Pain

Today people have gone to the extreme in order to feel better.  Someone is always trying to come up with a new pill to relieve pain, stress and other illnesses.  I know nobody who wants to hurt.  According to NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork) today, 39 million American adults- more than one out of every six- get at least one massage each year.
Massage Therapy has been proven effective in:
Relieving back pain
Boosting immune system
Reducing anxiety
Lowering blood pressure
Treating migraines
Decreasing carpal tunnel symptoms
Easing post-operative pain
Alleviating side effects of cancer
If I have a choice, I will go Green & Clean (clean from all man made products)
If you have been thinking about a career change.  Now is the time for it, the field is still wide open for Massage Therapist, because people are finding out the benefits of massage.

Vacations That Pay

Through the years I've found out massage even pays while on vacation.  Living in the state of North Carolina has its advantages while being a Licensed Massage Therapist.  Many times we have been on vacation, staying in a rental cabin, and the owner would ask. What do you do for a living!  Renee would speak up and say: "I'm a Massage Therapist".  The person would say; "I need a massage so bad".  So next time we came; you guessed it!  A few hours of massage paid for the whole trip!!
