Summer is in
our midst and there are some changes to Vitality that
are long overdue in announcing:
at Vitality have increased, so please be aware of that the
next time you pop in for an appointment. Also the HST
will come into place in June, but our prices will
not change to reflect this until early next year.
At the end of 2009 we were pleased to bring on board Michelle
Given Michelle's experience she has been an instant success. In January, we
had the pleasure of bringing on one of Michelle's classmates, Corinne Compton,
RMT. Then in February Sanae Komuro, RMT, a graduate of the Victoria College
of Massage joined our team. All three therapists have been very keen to build
their practices and contribute as team members to Vitality.
As of the end of January we said a fond farewell and a good luck to one
of our senior team members, Heather Tobin. She and her family have moved back
to the interior to be closer to family and to try out new adventures. Heather
is continuing to work full time in Castlegar and is enjoying her time there
at Vitality for almost 10 years I have to say that we
strive to have an environment where our RMTs enjoy working
and a large part of that is the great people we are treating
so thank you for being part of our environment and thanks
for your support." - Heather

a Marathon: thoughts about training realities in a busy
Now I get it.
Beth asked me to
write something for the Vitality Treatment Centre website.
Immediately my insecurities rose to the fore front. Write?
I'm not a writer. What would I write about?
I could write about my training for my marathon. I do
not have any new secrets for training harder, easier,
faster; no news on fitness and nutrition; nothing new
on technical gear. After much time thinking about it, I found an approach
that sat well with me. I would write about the journey that brought me to
my current endeavor and add an apology at the end.
A little background information...

How Massage Therapy can help if you're pregnant, breastfeeding or have a new born
Before I had
children I could only talk about the challenges of pregnancy,
breastfeeding and/or having a newborn. Now I can feel
those challenges with every fibre of my being; hence
the impetus for me writing this article.
In pregnancy your body goes
through obvious physical changes. The way we respond
to these changes vary greatly. The benefits of massage therapy can address
a myriad of physical manifestations. Not only can we do hands on work but
we can suggest coping mechanisms for sleep positions and exercises to perform
at home to ease some of the ongoing challenges.
Massage can help:
- with emotional and psychological challenges a woman may feel
- during labour - ask your massage therapist what positions might be good
and then teach them to your labour support team
- with your recovery, once your baby is born
- avoid blocked milk ducts
- newborns' digestion, stretching those little limbs and anything physical
that may present
