In This Issue: 5 Tips to Finding a Massage Therapist Make your Road Trip a Healthy Adventure What the Heck is Toe Reading? Benefits of Yoga 2014 CE Calendar

Welcome to our Digital Magazine!

This is our fourth issue and each time we find more to add. In the interest of saving a few trees, we are also 100% digital. One of our goals is to share with you tips for overall health and wellness. As a massage instructor, I know how beneficial massage can be but I also know that massage is just one part of a comprehensive wellness plan that can really result in a higher quality of life. I speak from experience! Taking care of myself is something that is a bit new to me. Like many people, I assumed that my body would just take care of itself and I did not need to contribute much. I loved junk food and sitting on the couch. Over time, the more I taught, the more I realized that I needed to practice what I was preaching. Our bodies need to move! Our bodies need to be nourished with delicious whole foods! Our minds need to take breaks! We need to breathe and laugh and get outside as often as possible. For me I could not do it all at once. I added a little bit at a time. That is the intent of our Wellbeing magazine. A tip, a tidbit or a trick here and there to lead everyone to a better sense of well being. The longer I practice good self-care, the easier it gets and now, it is pretty much a way of life. However, I haven’t forgotten the long road to get here and I still have to remind myself constantly that I am worth taking care of! One of my favorite sayings is “You can’t give what you don’t have.” I am not certain who said it, but it is so true. If you do not have well being, you cannot share it with others. The gift we give ourselves creates an abundance we can share with the world. Thank you for reading our magazine. If you have a friend who would like it, please send them the link so they can sign up to receive it as well. We hope you enjoy our little corner of wellness in the digital world! With gratitude,

Tips to Finding a Massage Therapist

By Katrina Clark, LMP Summertime is upon us, and that usually means a family vacation thrown in there somewhere. If you’re like me, one of my favorite things to do is to schedule myself a massage while I’m on vacation and experience different techniques. Or maybe you’re the person that doesn’t want their weekly massage routine interrupted. Whatever it may be, let’s be honest, massages are just awesome so why not make the most out of your vacation! However, there a few steps to ensure you find the right massage therapist and location. I was in Hawaii last year and learned a hard lesson, and I want YOU to learn from my mistakes. First off, I didn’t do my homework. I was so excited about being in Hawaii for the first time that I didn’t think to do any real research while booking my massage. I thought, how bad can a massage be in Hawaii? I just picked the first place that caught my eye on Google search and chose it based on its more affordable pricing. It wasn’t until I arrived for my appointment and noticed the dirty waiting area and unprofessional staff, that I started to regret not doing my homework. I even paid extra to have my massage “beach side” to make it extra special. Apparently beach side just meant opening up the back door and scooting the massage table outside (which was a parking lot, not a beach by the way) where everyone including the FedEx guy could watch me. Um . . . no thanks. The second I left, I started looking up reviews for this place. Turns out I wasn’t the first person to leave there with my skin crawling. And to think this could have been avoided if I had just done my homework in the first place! Here are five key tips to make sure you have a great massage experience while out of town!


I know this seems like a no brainer, but it’s all about WHAT you Google. Make sure you get as specific in your search as possible and ALWAYS check reviews! Luckily for us, we live in a day and age where just about every piece of information we could possible want is available on the web. Websites like Yelp and Tripadvisor are great resources.

Lavender is considered the “Universal Essential Oil” and is the most commonly used essential oil as it is beneficial for just about everything!

Stephanie Blakley, LMP

It’s list of therapeutic properties is long, but the most popular uses include relaxation, anti-anxiety, antibacterial, deodorizer, insect repellent and is used to treat a number of skin issues including dry skin and sunburns. Try diffusing a few drops of Lavender to help create a more calm and relaxed environment or add a few drops to a warm bath for the same effect. See for yourself the benefits of Lavender, and try out our recipe for After Sun Spray (see page 12)

5 Ways To Make Your Road Trip A Healthy Adventure Summer has finally shown up, and you may be getting the itch to jump in the car and go exploring. With blue skies, a great playlist, and the open road ahead, just the thought of a road trip can bring a smile to your face.

Yet with all the sitting and road sign after road sign for fast food ahead, how can you possibly stay healthy for days on end? Try these manageable tips to keep you and your traveling companions happy and healthy.

1. Get a good night’s sleep.

Part of being on vacation is the luxury of not having a set schedule. This is the perfect time to let your circadian rhythm readjust and give yourself permission to go to bed early or sleep in. By allowing yourself proper rest, you’ll avoid driving drowsy, which helps prevent car accidents and maintains your alertness on the road.

2. Map out healthy restaurants and farmers markets along your route.

If you know your route in advance or have access to a good WiFi connection, take some time to search out healthy restaurants or local farmers markets along the way. There are several websites out there that make it super easy to find locally grown and organic options. With the sustainable food movement continuing to spread, spend some time talking with local vendors, as they’ll have insider tips that you might not be able to find online.

3. Pack a cooler.

Buy extra goodies at the farmers market so you can stock up on healthy snacks like ripe peaches, hand roasted nuts, or local yogurt. Then, during your next stop at the gas station, stock up on ice for the cooler instead of typical salty and sugary road trip fare.

4. Stop and explore.

Sitting in the car can lead to lower backaches and stiff legs, so it’s important to get out of the car and move your body restoring blood flow. Half the fun of road tripping is stopping to explore a new area. Bring your sneakers and go for a hike, or find a beautiful park and practice some yoga moves.

5. Be a water baby.

Whether you book a hotel, motel, or a house rental along your road trip route, try and seek out one with a pool or nearby lake to take a dip. Summer is the perfect time to cool off in outdoor waters and has the added benefit of helping stiff, weak muscles recover. If you’re lucky enough to find a heated pool or Jacuzzi, the warm water helps to aid digestion and promote relaxation, which was the point of your road trip in the first place!

What the Heck is Toe Reading? Nancy A. Newman, Master Toe Reader

Whenever I tell someone I am a toe reader, the very first question I get is: “What the heck is toe reading?” Toe Reading is the principle that the energy of beliefs and past experiences travel from the subconscious along the energy meridians, imprinting as three-dimensional holographic images on the toes and feet as the twists and shapes of the toes, toenails and feet, and the wrinkles, blisters, corns, callouses, fungus, freckles, scars, bunions, etc. which can occur. To a trained toe reader, every characteristic on your toes and feet means something. Very seldom is a blister just a blister. While it is true that the blister may have been caused by that new pair of shoes, or a longer than usual walk or run, how many people wear new shoes with no problem? How many times have you worn new shoes with no problem? It is more likely that the subconscious took advantage of a weakness in the energy in that area to get a message to you. We just have to learn the metaphorical language of the subconscious to understand the message. The Right Foot represents how you step out into the world – how you relate to the world, work and relationships. The Right Foot also represents your male energy, Yang, the past and your “outer world.” Your Left Foot represents how you relate to yourself and Spirit, however you define Spirit (God, Spirit, Universe, The Divine, Source, etc.). Even an atheist has a definition of Spirit as: “There isn’t any!” Your Left Foot also represents your female energy, the present, Yin and your “inner world.” It can also represent the “Divine Feminine” energy. Each toe represents something different as well. The meanings for each toe are the same on both feet, although the interpretation is influenced through the meaning of each foot. For example, what is presented to the world (right foot) might be totally different than your personal beliefs (left foot) even looking at the same toe on each foot. The Big Toe is your Destiny Toe, your “Self” toe. The element is Ether. The Second Toe is your Communication Toe, with the element of Air. The Middle Toe is your Action Toe and has Fire for the element. The Fourth Toe is your Relationship Toe. The element is Water. The Little Toe is your Trust toe, and the element is Earth. Even a basic knowledge of toe reading allows someone to gain insight into self, family, friends and clients. Toe reading is a perfect adjunct for holistic practitioners such as life coaches, massage therapists, reflexologists, acupuncturists, etc. I teach just such a class through Columbia River Institute, and it is even eligible for 6 continuing education credits!

5 Tips to Finding a Massage Therapist (Continued) Massage Schools

If you are on a budget like me, check and see if there is a massage school in the area. Going through a student clinic is a great way to receive a good, affordable massage.


Facebook is a great way to network with people you already know. Just simply throwing out a question like, “Where is a good place to get a massage in Hawaii?” could get you all kinds of great responses from friends who have been there and know first hand the best places to get a massage.

Groupon and Living Social

If you aren’t already familiar with these two websites I suggest you check them out. They are my favorite tools to use when looking for good deals and reviews. You simply put in the state and zip code of where you want a list of deals and narrow your search for what you’re looking for. They have deals on things like spa services, restaurants, shows, photography packages, travel packages, local art classes and so much more. They also have a ton of customer reviews for each deal.

Ask a Local

If you have a chance to talk to a local, take full advantage and ask away! Most times, just spending a few minutes talking to a local about the best places to go in the area is worth more then what you might have paid your travel agent! They are usually more than happy to promote local business and will be able to give you the best feedback on where to go, since chances are they go there on a regular basis!

The Benefits of Yoga From The American Osteopathic Association

​ wo women practicing yogaDeveloped T in India thousands of years ago, yoga has become an increasingly popular form of exercise in the United States. Whether yoga’s recent rise in popularity stems from an increase in stress levels or the following of a Hollywood trend, yoga delivers many benefits to those who incorporate it into their everyday lives. “Yoga is a healing system of theory and practice. The purpose of yoga is to create strength, awareness and harmony in both the mind and body,” explains Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, Calif. “As an osteopathic physician, I focus a lot of my efforts on preventive medicine and practices, and in the body’s ability to heal itself. Yoga is a great tool for staying healthy because it is based on similar principles.” While there are more than one hundred different types, or schools, of yoga, most sessions are typically comprised of breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (sometimes called asana or poses) that stretch and flex various muscle groups. Benefits of Yoga “The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome,” explains Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.” According to Dr. Nevins, other physical benefits include: Increased flexibility Increased muscle strength and tone Improved respiration, energy and vitality Weight reduction The maintenance of a balanced metabolism Cardio and circulatory health Improved athletic performance Protection from injury Aside from the array of physical benefits, one of the best benefits of yoga is how it helps a person manage stress, which has been known to have devastating effects on the body and mind. “Stress can reveal itself in many ways, including back or neck pain, sleeping problems, headaches, drug abuse, and an inability to concentrate,” says Dr. Nevins. “Yoga can be very effective in developing coping skills and reaching a more positive outlook on life.”

“It’s not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.” ~ Hans Selye

Page 12

Unlike more traditional forms of exercise, yoga’s incorporation of meditation and breathing help a person improve his/her mental well-being. “Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration,” says Dr. Nevins. Body and self-awareness, in particular, are very beneficial, adds Dr. Nevins, “because it can help with early detection of physical problems or ailments and allow for early preventive action.” Because there are so many different kinds of yoga practices, it is possible for anyone to start. “Whether you’re a couch potato or a professional athlete, size and fitness levels do not matter because there are modifications for every yoga pose and beginner classes in every style,” says Dr. Nevins. “The idea is to explore your limits, not strive for some pretzel-like perfection.” Yoga can be practiced to enhance overall health, to improve balance, to heal and prevent injuries, to strengthen muscles and to open the body for meditation. “It is a great way to get in tune with your body and your inner self,” says Dr. Nevins. Yoga’s increasing popularity is proof that many people value an exercise system that engages the mind, body and spirit in equal measure. If you’ve never done yoga before, give it a try and see what it can do for you. June/July 2014

Some applause for great dads

Gone are the days of dad working all day to come home to a pipe, slippers, and the evening paper while the kids sit waiting for dinner. This generation of fathers and step fathers are “all in” when it comes to child-raising. There’s more to a dad these days than little league coach. Men who play an active role in their children’s lives deserve a little recognition. Whether they are baby-wearing or carpooling, more dads are helping care for families “in the home,” some even full time. According to the US Census Bureau there were 93,000 stay-at-home-dads in the United States in 2000. Fast forward to 2012 and they reported 189,000 stayat-home dads and it’s not only moms at “Mommy and Me” anymore! Dads who work in the home chase kids, hold babies, sing lullabies, clean messes, play taxi driver, and juggle after school schedules. They get stressed out, touched out, and overwhelmed. These guys need “me time,” too. What does he do for down time? Video games, hunting, fishing, workout, massage? Stay-at-home-dads aren’t the only awesome ones, though. Many working fathers don’t take a break when they arrive home but dive right in to home life. Cooking, cleaning, and playing with the kids is more than “pitching in,” it’s a part of life with a family. More and more dads share in the sometimes exciting, sometimes mundane activities called life. Weekend dads are important, too. Sometimes circumstances arise in which a family lives apart. Trying to pack a week’s worth of time into a weekend can’t be easy. Going from a full house to an empty nest every other week can have an emotional effect, especially if they live miles away. What can you do for the special man in your life who shares your home, your children, and your life? You could find tickets to his favorite team’s game! Maybe there is a concert coming up he’d like to go to. Send him on a fishing/boating/ hunting trip. Slip a massage gift certificate into the stack of homemade cards from the kids. Heck, make him a card yourself! Cutting and painting construction paper sounds fun and he’ll know you’re “thank you” is coming from the heart!
