The Missing Puzzle Piece: Why Massage Clients Return With The Same Issues

I have been a massage therapist for about a decade. I would have clients come week after to week, month after to month with same chronic muscle dysfunction and pain. After seeing them time after time, I knew exactly what their complaints were without even asking. I would often ask myself if I truly was doing my job.



About two years ago, I was trained by James Waslaski who is the creator of Orthomassage and Pain Management in Irving, TX. He said something that just blew me away! "Why… Continue

the elements

I often feel like if I can run here in Colorado, I can run almost anywhere. Now I am sure there are folks in places like say Alaska or North Dakota laughing at me right now … but Colorado offers some challenging elements. For one thing, we are running at 6200 feet above sea level. The Bolder Boulder race says it best with their “Sea Level is for Sissies” gear. So naturally, traveling to a lower altitude immediately turns you into a super hero runner.



Colorado is cold. I know we boast… Continue
