Once thought of as a luxury service, massage therapy has recently been redefined.  Massage therapy offers a wide variety of proven health and medical benefits vs. just a “pampering” experience.  These days, massage therapy is viewed upon as a medical modality, which is being offered in various settings outside the typical spa.  Businesses, clinics, hospitals and even airports are now offering massage therapy services!  Massage therapy is a very rewarding career, often with a flexible work schedule.

It is getting warmer outside and turning from spring to summer very quickly…its almost Memorial Day, where many people will spend the weekend lounging by the pool, at the beach or cooking BBQ!  Along with all fun in the sun that summer brings, it also brings sunburns.  Sunburns may seem like just a temporary irritation, but can cause serious permanent damage, especially over time.  Sunburns can lead to premature aging, sunspots and skin cancer.  Children are especially vulnerable to sunburns, as their skin is very delicate and sensitive.
