Letter from the publisher It’s Heating Up...


nd not just the temperature! The housing market is heating up as well. Over 30,000 homes have been purchased this year. Yes, prices are still low and it’s a great time to buy. If home sales continue to increase, and it looks like they will, we will start to see the prices going up. That means the value of your home will grow. We at Welcome Home AZ, and our advertisers, would like to thank the thousands of new homeowners who have called and found value in our magazine and the companies who advertise with us. Many of you are working on making your new house a home and we would like to help. Now is the time to buy, with gas prices continuing to go up we will see other prices rise as well. Take advantage of deals while you can, many of the companies advertising in this issue will help keep you cool this summer and help you save money on your utility bills. Sunscreens and awnings, additional insulation in your attic, AC check-ups, and many other investments you make now can save you thousands of dollars in the years to come. You will find additional suggestions in this month’s feature article on page 20. Also if you are looking for fun things to do you can check out our Calendar of Events on pages 14 & 15 or at If you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen, bathroom, closets or any other room in your home, you will find great savings in this issue. You will be amazed on what a fresh coat of paint can do to the appearance of your home, inside and out. How about a new pool or remodeling the one you have? We provide you with companies you can TRUST! Check out the new solar salt chlorinator for your pool, it can save you cash and it’s easy to use. For the outdoors, we have landscapers who can show you how to get the most out of the space that you have. Check out our plant and tree offers that will help shade your home this summer and the amazing tree services that will save the ones you may have lost in the winter freeze. You can stay inside and stay cool while our companies do the work! You will also find featured appliances, furniture, and even a new mattress, all at great savings. Those of us who have lived here for a while understand the triple-digit temperatures we are about to experience, but for many of you this will be your first summer living in the heat. Just remember it’s a “dry heat” and it only lasts for a few months… stay hydrated & KEEP COOL! If you have any suggestion or questions, I would love to hear from you. Welcome Home Arizona,

Sam Kladis President/Publisher

InnovatIve HealtH Care SolutIonS S

tructural Integration Therapy (SIT) is the most expedient form of treatment in the bodywork industry. When someone is in pain, they are in need of immediate help. They know something must change and it must change now. The relationship within their own body must be re-cultivated to understand their chronic holding patterns. They must do an inventory on how they sit, stand, walk or carry objects. They must develop a fundamental sense of awareness for how they have gotten to the point where they are considering a treatment to get them out of dysfunction. The neuromuscular workings of the body have become decreased; such as, limited range of motion in an arm or shoulder or, the inability to sit for a long period of time as you have done for many years. What has happened is your structure, as it relates to gravity, is being pulled down and areas of compensation have taken hold. This is similar to how a suspension bridge is structured. Cables are strong everywhere except for a few tension cables. This will then put pressure on the rest of the structure eventually putting cracks in the bridge itself. These areas need to be addressed before it compromises the body. The indications for treatment are back pain or neck pain and when you cannot

move a shoulder as you once did or have pain in the knees. These areas need room to move in around the joint. This is Structural Integration Therapy, with deep stretching and slow, even, deep movement. Therapy including the use of therapist’s elbows, fingers and fists heat up the tissue which then becomes soft. It is normally very hard and difficult to move, stretch and lengthen. During this therapy, it becomes very pliable and easy to change (or more fluid). This process is called thixatropy. It usually takes one, or possibly two, visits for the body to adapt to the treatment, allowing the therapy to reorient the muscle and the connective tissue to their normal length. Once this is accomplished there will be increased circulation and strength with greater range of motion. There will be decreased toxins and pain and increased functioning of the area. Structural Integration Therapy is not a massage, it is body work and it works quickly. The key prerequisite is that the patient will need to be accepting to follow “homework” given by the therapist. This may include yogic stretches determined for treatment and duration. Noticeable improvement in symptoms took place in usually two to five sessions. The onset of treatment includes evaluation of the body for 30 minutes

Did you once feel as strong as this mountain? Indestructible and a pillar of strength?

to determine the change needed for the body. Based on this information, a protocol treatment procedure is formulated for the client once a week. During the time of treatment it is advisable to increase one’s protein intake as this is the same as a physical workout. There will be tissue that is broken down as if one had worked out. The body is in need of normal amounts of protein for carrying out the functions of normal body activities. When in therapy, the body will use large amounts of protein to rebuild the area to bring the body to homeostasis or natural healing of itself. Finally a key component is how you are breathing. Breathing correctly is the paramount ingredient to one’s recovery. One interesting fact is where you feel the pain or dysfunction is not necessarily where it is originating from. The therapist can tell by his/her training and practice what area’s of the body need to be addressed to return you to better health. This modality stands on its own because it directly changes the body at the time of therapy. Think it. Visualize it. Breathe it. And watch change happen very naturally.

Homeowner hints

by Valorie Haywood

Surviving the Sizzling Summer O

ur Calendar of Events, on pages 14-15, offers an array of different activities for you and your family to do around the Valley. Some are outdoor events and some are exclusively indoors because in Phoenix, the fast approaching heat causes the air conditioning to be a hot commodity, so to speak. As a new homeowner you most likely enjoy being in your new home as much as possible, so we will provide some tips and activities, in your own backyard, that will keep you cool when the triple digits hit. You should be able to enjoy your backyard year-round, yes, even in Phoenix. Your patio is an investment and adds a lot of value to your home. If you are building your own deck, you will want to weatherproof it from the heat and you will need to have it sealed as soon as it is completed. Another way to add enjoyment to your patio is to install misting fans. They are affordable and since they use a technique similar to evaporative cooling, they will not ruin your patio furniture. Adding an awning is another way to keep your family happy outside–whether it be for a BBQ, a place to go when you get out of the pool or just a place to lounge with friends–a patio awning can make a huge difference. You will want a reputable company to install your awning, to provide your patio furniture, or help with your new deck, so be sure to check out the advertisers throughout Welcome Home AZ for a company you can trust. The most popular activity in the summer–swimming! Maybe you don’t have a pool or maybe you need a pool makeover on the

home you have just purchased. Either way, you need to find a contractor that will make sure your family gets the pool of their dreams and is safe in that pool all summer long. (Hint - you can find them in this magazine!) You will need to know if you want an above ground pool or an in-ground pool, if you want to use tile or fiberglass, what landscaping you would like to accent your pool, and a safe fence to place around your pool. Speaking of landscaping, this can be a crucial piece in the keeping-it-cool puzzle. Large plants that provide shade keep your backyard cooler, as well as your house, and planting new foliage can be an activity the whole family can have fun with! Now that your backyard is taken care of, doesn’t that make you want to take your family outside and enjoy the warm weather? Don’t let the heat keep you inside, let our advertisers help make your backyard an oasis that your family can enjoy all summer long!
