Sprained ankle, thank you, and new offices
Happy spring!! There was no newsletter for March as there really wasn't a whole lot to say. But, now I have lots of interesting bits and bobs to share for April.
First of all happy spring! And Happy Daylight Savings Time! I certainly get a renewed energy this time of year. You know, since it's not dark at 4:30pm.
In early March, I sprained my ankle while out on a run (that's a photo of my foot around day 5). It turns out, that I have 3 sprains in one ankle and have to wear a boot (with crutch supplementation) for a minimum of a few weeks. Needless to say, not my best day (or subsequent weeks) ever.
I had returned to work, only to have to pull back again when we realized that a high ankle sprain was part of my situation and I needed to go into a boot. It's been enormously frustrating for an active person (both in work and my personal life) to be relegated to the sofa for weeks. I mean, it's all well and good to be able to watch countless hours of shows on Netflix (thank goodness for Netflix and Amazon Prime!!), but a girl's gotta eat. I don't get paid (sadly) to watch TV. And I missed you guys so much!! I get to (usually) spend my days helping you find balance in your bodies and catch up on your lives. My job is awesome.
As a result of this setback, I had to cancel and reschedule several of your sessions. Which leads me to my next thought of THANK YOU. Those of you who I have seen at the office (while I was doing admin work to prep for the move), or who I spoke to because of scheduling problems.....thank you thank you thank you. You have all been so understanding and supportive and I appreciate it more than I can say.
But, now I'm back in business. I am working a lighter workload to ensure I don't overtax myself (and this boot weighs a ton and wears me out), and I have tweaked my hours a bit since I can't drive and my darling husband has to chauffeur me everywhere, but I am back. So, shoot me an email and get your session scheduled!
Have I teased you long enough? Well it's finally happening!! The physical therapy office is moving and so am I. May 1 is the target date and the space is currently being renovated. Below is a photo of my new massage room in it's BEFORE state. It's going to be lovely. It will be much quieter, more spacious, and is dedicated to massage. The parking issues you have come to know and loathe will also be a thing of the past. Can't wait to share more details as things progress.
What is the difference between deep tissue and deep pressure?
In general, deep tissue massage targets deeper layers of muscle, connective tissue, and fascia, and is most typically employed to address chronic tension and for clients recovering from injury. It is intended to be a focused technique (such as working on that old rotator cuff injury) as opposed to a full body technique.
