Having a baby puts your body through a tremendous amount of physical and emotional stress, to say the least. Many women take such good care of their bodies while they’re pregnant, and then once the baby arrives, Mom is all but forgotten with the demands of motherhood. Many overlook the recovery time necessary to fully rehabilitate their body afterwards, but pregnancy and the delivery process are just like any other drastic change to the body. There is a necessary recovery t
Let’s face it: we’re all going a bit crazy with our current temporary way of life. Being separated from our close friends and family, becoming make shift teachers, working from home (if you’re able to), and cooking three times a day; it’s a lot. If you’re an essential worker, although your job has remained the same, the knowledge of the invisible enemy is constantly at the forefront of your mind, not to mention the process you go through when you get home at night to ensur
As of 3/20/2020 Florida Governor DeSantis has decreed that all massage therapy businesses close until May 8th. Why? Because massage isn't safe right now.
After the President declared a national emergency, both Disney World and Universal Studios closed, and Florida closed all school systems I feel it's the right thing to do. This is my way of flattening the curve which helps stop the spread of COVID-19. The biggest reason Massage or Knot is temporarily closed is that people
Let's talk about the elephant in the room:
Coronavirus We are all mindful of Coronavirus by now so I wanted to take the time to address any concerns you may have. I block out 45 minutes between each appointment. Yes, it's so my body can rest and I can have a snack. But it's also so I can disinfect my office before my next client walks in. This is how that's accomplished:
*I wipe down every single surface that I or the previous client touched. That includes my lotion/oil bot
Do you suffer from tension headaches?
Headaches can definitely affect your quality of life. They can make you grouchy and want to hibernate in a cold, dark room and sleep until the next day.
Here's 5 ways that you can help alleviate or keep a headache at bay.
1-Have some type of food with you at all times.
When you go long periods of time without any food, your blood sugar can drop which then brings on a headache. Try to keep some kind of snack with you at all times: nu
Getting trinkets as gifts can make us a little crazy since most of us are trying to rid our homes of clutter. So what do you do for the holidays?
Give gifts of experience!
Here are some fun experiences in the Winter Park and Orlando area that would make great gifts:
Leu Gardens- A great getaway for a day or an afternoon. They offer classes, movie nights, and even story times.
Gatorland- Often overlooked! They offer a zip line experience, Florida resident specials, and ev
Neck pain is common and there’s a variety of things that can cause it. You may have just slept wrong and tried to turn your head a certain way only to feel some pretty sharp pain; then you’re stuck walking around all day barely able to turn to the side. You may have been hunched over at your desk all day, or done some exercise that didn’t quite agree with you. Whatever the cause, it’s no fun. Of course, a massage session will help, but there are some things you can do in the
Grief is all encompassing. It affects every single part of you and your life. And unfortunately, there is no way to prepare for it or learn how to deal with it until it happens to you. Added to that, our modern society has gotten rid of all of the things we humans used to do to let the world know that we are in the middle of a challenging time. Things such as putting a black wreath on our front door or wearing a black arm band were used in the past to let the world know to be
So you're pregnant! Yay! But you're having sore hip joints. You haven't slept in days because you can't find a comfortable position. Your neck and shoulders are screaming at you; those areas normally give you trouble but now it's even worse. Your calves are cramping at night and it's hard to jump out of the bed quickly at this stage of the game. Your toddler still wants to be picked up and she/he can't understand why Mommy can't pick her/him up as much as she used to. And you
Massage can be a wonderful thing. But it can also be a bit scary, if you've never had a professional massage before. When you arrive at the office, I’ll have a brief intake form for you to complete, if you haven't already completed the online form that was emailed to you when the appointment was made. We’ll talk about why you’re coming in for a massage and what your goals are for the session: Are you dealing with pain? Do you need/want to relax? A combination of both? I’ll
