Laura’s Young Living Essential Summer
Guaranteed to get you through the coming months with the zip of the plants around us.
Have you read any good labels lately? I have, and have been astonished to find a lot of nasty things in the summer solutions in the grocery. I want to buy things that I can feel good about for my family. Frankly, I also like having products which will do double duty. Essential oils are nature’s most elegant and eclectic multi-taskers. Here’s what I mean:Read more...
Welcome to our redesigned website
Welcome to our newly redesigned website. While sharingthehealth.com has been up and running for almost two years, we have been putting major effort into developing the content you find here today. Recording and editing the movies for the instructional DVDs; organizing and recording the “webinar” presentations; researching and writing the articles; authoring an e-book; and learning the fundamentals of website design. And all this activity in the spare time between seeing our massage clients and raising a family. While there is a lot here already, the better news is we have lots more to contribute. Our best teachers are our students, our clients and our kids...and people like you!Read more...

Waist Management - A Sensible Plan
We are constantly bombarded with advertisements for weight loss programs and products designed to help us achieve our dream physique. So much of one’s success in waist management has to do with making a commitment, taking positive action, and retraining ourselves to make better food choices more often. I have been on the weight loss - weight gain roller coaster several times in my life. In 1995 I tipped the scales at 258 (I am 6’21/2 “ on a good day) which was pretty bad for me and not as bad as others in our country. At that time I embarked on a journey of discovery about proper food choices and reprogramming my eating habits. I managed to reduce my weight considerably following a strict Zone diet and never returned to the high water mark of 258 again.
Bumps and bruises
Our 13 yr. old son come in today after playing some basketball with school chums across the street. He had a dark mark under his eye having taken an elbow going up for a rebound. And he's not even sitting for a family or school photograph tomorrow!
First thing he asked me? Which oil do I use for a black eye?
When NOT to Massage
As practicing massage therapists with many years of experience we have had our share of success stories working with our clients. As educators we strongly believe that keeping boundaries around the limitations of massage therapy is important. There are times that professionals and amateurs alike take on situations that should be cleared medically before massage therapy is attempted.
Here is some basic information to consider before doing massage work on anyone.
Trigger Points - the “gift” that keeps on giving
Have a nagging ache that seems to come and go? Or won’t go away? You can feel fine for weeks, even months and then BAM!, the pain returns with a vengeance. You take a couple of aspirin or ibuprofen, rest it and it feels better for a while. Then, for no reason at all it seems to return “all of a sudden” out of nowhere. It could be your low back, a stiff neck, tension headache, painful wrist or tingling foot - you name it - you know what I mean.
