Good News for Teachers in Kingston and Poughkeepsie!
Bodymind Now Accepts National Health Administrators, Inc. (NHAI) Health Insurance!
Over the years, one of the most frequently asked questions by clients and potential clients has been, "Do you accept health insurance?". With the acception of no-fault, which I have always taken, the answer, sadly, was no.
Well - that's all changed! Now the answer is "Yes!"
Bodymind is pleased to be a provider of health care services for National Health Administrators, the health insurance company that insures the faculty of Kingston and Poughkeepsie schools, so if you work in these districts, you are now covered for massage therapy at Bodymind!
We even have after-school and weekend hours to accommodate your busy work schedule. Make your appointment today - we look forward to serving you!
Run, Don't Walk, To Your Massage Therapist
Spring is nearly upon us and for many, that means the return of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, running and gardening.
While we all love these activities, if you've spent the Winter on the couch, your muscles may not like you very much the day after your first run! So, why not come in for a massage to gear up for (or recover from) your first Springtime outing.
The soreness that you can feel after a vigourous workout, whether it is from hiking up Slide Mountain or from digging in your back yard to plant a new bed of annuals, is a result of lactic acid, a natural waste product of muscles.
It is important that you stay well hydrated, before, during and after your workout so your body has all the help it can get in flushing the lactic acid from your system.
Massage Therapy also can help you move lactic acid out of circulation, so the two make a great complimentary approach to your health and well-being.
Welcome to the Mentastics Minute!
In each newsletter, I will be suggesting a Mentastics movement that you can "try on" for yourself. If you have suggestions or requests for the Mentastics Minute, please send an email.
This Mentastic movement is an all-over upper-body moment of joy.
Standing comfortably, make the movement with your hand and arm as if you are a princess stroking your beautiful, long, flowing flaxen hair, from forehead, over the top of your head and down your side. Some Trager Practitioners used to call the movement "Miss Piggy", because it reminded them of that puppet, when, very coyly, would ask, "Who... moi?!" How beautifully can you make this motion... how lovely... how fun?
How would it feel if you used half as much effort now... and half of that... and half of that... Make this movement for about a minute. Switch and do the movement with the other arm.
Now rest for a moment. What do you notice about your body - your hands - your arms - your shoulders - your back - your mind?
