Introducing Fernwood Massage Therapy and Jeanette Pike – and a little personal story about myself…

Let me introduce you to someone who has made a huge difference in my life.  Meet Jeanette:

Jeanette is a registered massage therapist here in town.  Here are some shots of her in action.

Now I am going to share something very personal about me.  So far only a few people know this, but here it is for all to read: a few years ago (2008) I lost my hair.  Yep, about 70% of it fell out in the span of 2 weeks.  It was pretty devastating.

Alopecia is a hard little bludger… and it’s even harder to know what brings it on, at least from a medical stand point.  I fully believe mine was stress related.  Enter Jeanette, recommended to me by a dear friend.  I knew I needed to take steps in my life to manage my stress.  I am not a big venter, I tend to hold things in until my ears are touching my shoulders.  I carry it all there.  If I wanted my hair to return, I needed help.  I now see Jeanette monthly as part of my stress management.  I credit my new head of hair at least partially to the difference she has made in my life.

Jeanette has recently started her own massage therapy practice and I was honoured when she asked me to take some pictures of her new place for her webpage.  Here are some of those pics:

If you have any muscle or stress issues, I encourage you to think about massage therapy.  Many extended health plans cover at least part of a visit to an RMT.  A registered massage therapist can do anything from a relaxation massage, to treatments for sports related or stress related muscle issues.  Sometimes I was having headaches in my temples that was related to a muscle in my neck!  I go for a more healing massage, which you can really feel when you are in there, and makes a huge difference in my life.  Check our her new site, featuring even more of my photos and her information!

And thanks Jeanette!  See you Monday!
