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.

And thanks Jeanette! See you Monday!
