"1. Yoga. 2. Small, healthy meals and snacks. 3. A game on the computer called Entanglement in between sessions - it helps clear my mind and focus me on something completely unrelated to massage/bodywork."

Hi Abram,  I was really excited to see my comments about masseuse/masseur printed in M&BW!  I am curious - do you know what the circulation numbers are?  I'm going to send a copy of the article to my grandma and I'd love to be able to tell her how many people get the magazine!  Thanks!
