Physician, Heal Thyself

Okay, I'm not a physician (and may not diagnose as part of my scope of practice), and that quote is not really used correctly...  What I'm trying to say is that I need to take my own advice.  On Friday I had an excellent massage from one of my Swedish Institute classmates (Robert Nowak).  It had been a while since I had a treatment, and I was clearly in need.  Afterwards, I felt so much more grounded, connected to my body, taller, at ease.  Many of the little kinks that I had attributed to overworking were only due to the fact I hadn't had a massage in some time.  I'm constantly amazed at what a simple massage can accomplish!

Thank you, Robert!


  1. I have always loved massage, and see it as a great way to stay healthy. I am also amazed at how much better I can feel after a massage!

  2. I agree, Andrea! Yet sometimes I get so wrapped up in other daily activities I forget to do this simple, healthy thing for myself. I'm determining: once a month at LEAST.
