Thai on the Table Massage is a Win-Win

Thai on the Table Massage is a Win-Win

Thai on the Table massage is a Win-Win, both for “the giver” and especially “the receiver.” Our first thoughts while Molly, Susan, and I were learning this uniquely different, relaxing, and effective massage was “WANT.” We could see and feel the positive health effects for our clients-and for our therapists. If there exists a therapeutic […]

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced ray-key in English) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s, it is administered by “laying on hands.” Similar techniques have been practiced for thousands of years. According to many Reiki texts, as well as Susan Caples, our very […]

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy For Your Back Pain

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy For Your Back Pain

I knew nothing about Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy (barefoot massage) until 18 years ago when my husband, a Florida Licensed Massage Therapist and my massage therapy business partner, became a Certified Ashiatsu Practitioner. Thanks to his first generation training with the creator and instructor of Oriental Bar Therapy, Ruthie Hardee, he has helped relieve or […]

Was Mothers Day The Inspiration For Fathers Day?

Was Mothers Day The Inspiration For Fathers Day?

Yes, Mothers Day was in fact the inspiration for Fathers Day Gift Ideas and Celebrations. And other than the enormous commercialism of both of these national holidays, the inspiration was noble and worthy of consideration. Honoring our mothers and fathers is a life-long process because we can honor our parents, even after their deaths. According […]

The History Behind Honoring Mothers on Mother's Day

The History Behind Honoring Mothers on Mother’s Day

Honoring mothers is considered a noble lifelong pursuit, but have you ever wondered how and why honoring mothers evolved to a National Holiday? In the United States Mother’s Day reportedly started as a way for mourning women to honor fallen soldiers. A “Mother’s Friendship Day” was organized in 1868 to allow mothers of Union and Confederate soldiers […]

Florida's Hands On Continuing Education Protocol For LMTs Is A Good Thing

Florida’s Hands On Continuing Education Protocol For LMTs Is A Good Thing

We have always enjoyed Florida’s Hands On Continuing Education Protocol For Licensed Massage Therapists as a Good Thing. Imagine one or more sets of professional massage therapists’ hands massaging your body at one time in the same session-a six hour session? Ahhhhh……Florida’s Continuing Education Protocol is a good thing! Lots of fun and an adventure […]

With a Valentine's Day Gift Massage U Will Be My Valentine 4 Ever

With a Valentine’s Day Gift Massage U Will Be My Valentine 4 Ever

Will U Be My Valentine 4 Ever? Consider a valentine’s day gift massage! Saint Valentine’s Day, celebrated in our country on February 14th every year, is liturgical in origin, like other holidays that we commemorate and enjoy. History books tell us that Saint Valentine’s Day was fixed by the Western Christian Church to be recognized on February 14th, while […]

Cold Weather, Pain and Massage Therapy

Cold Weather, Pain and Massage Therapy

Hey, baby, it’s cold outside! Cold Weather, Pain, and Massage Therapy go hand in hand. Whether you are in Alaska or Florida-cold weather “demands” a massage from Amelia Massage Associates. Yep, it’s winter, when we all feel those aches and pains that seemed less obvious or restrictive during the fall and summer seasons. But there is […]

It's the Season for Giving

It’s the Season for Giving

What comes to mind when you see or hear the phrase “It’s the season for giving”? For many it brings the mindless but not heartless pre-occupation of gift-giving, as it presents itself to our Anatomy & Physiology. This time of year it starts surfing within the brainwaves and flowing through the heart, sometimes as early as September and […]

Thanksgiving, Tryptophan, and Therapeutic Massage

Thanksgiving, Tryptophan, and Therapeutic Massage

What are the shared benefits of the Thanksgiving feast, tryptophan, and therapeutic massage? You might think hmmmmm…….nothing. But let’s reconsider. Thanksgiving is that time of the year when we traditionally come together around a feast-laden table to give of ourselves by giving to each other. What unfolds is a testament of our thankfulness, our gratitude, […]

Fall, A Kaleidoscope Season for The Body, Mind and Spirit

Fall, A Kaleidoscope Season for The Body, Mind and Spirit

When Fall arrives-the kaleidoscope season for the body, mind and spirit-wouldn’t a relaxing massage provide your “kneaded” break after a hot, humid summer and the ‘hurry up and take a vacation with the kids before school starts’ scenario?  Are you thinking about the upcoming holidays and the hustle and bustle-the cleaning, the cooking, and the major […]

Genuine Customer Service Is Heart Borne

Genuine Customer Service Is Heart Borne

Have you heard the expression: “If your heart’s not in it, why bother?” Wise words. I ponder the reality that all too often we see and feel complacency within the various businesses that we encounter throughout our everyday lives. Why is this? And what do we as consumers expect ‘customer service’ to be? Where does […]

Cupping Therapy: A New Olympic Event?

Is there a new Olympic event called cupping? Well, yes and no. Michael Phelps, the most decorated American Olympian in history, knows the answer.

Five Healthy Reasons To Receive Massage Therapy

Five Healthy Reasons To Receive Massage Therapy

Upon hearing the word massage, many people immediately think of going to a spa and spending some quality “me-time.” Sure, massage can help put your mind and body at ease. But its benefits extend beyond providing you that feeling of comfort and relaxation. The manipulation of soft tissues has several health benefits that you may […]
