Report from the World Massage Festival

I just returned from attending the World Massage Festival in Las Vegas, and what a blast! I’ve been attending this annual event for several years, and this was the best one yet. My husband, Champ, accompanied me, and we really had a fabulous time. This event is like a family reunion every year, so I really enjoyed seeing so many people I know and don’t get to see often. The Festival was held at the…

New on Here

Just a small intro about me.  I base my therapy on the basic principles of Ayurveda treating the mind,  body, and soul.  My therapy connects with all five senses not just the touch of massage.  My energy work is based upon one to one training by a Master and Divine intervention.  Blessings to you all :)

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

OK, I did a lot more this summer than this, but there is one thing I want to tell you about. Why should you care what I did? Apparently you read my blog because I have something important to say. This one is real important, at least I think so.

Many of you longtime readers know of my dissatisfaction with many existing theories of explanation for myofascial release. If it had stayed grounded in the simple model of 20-30 years ago, a model of ground substance, elastin, and collagen,…
