The Gift of Bodywork
Volume #13, Issue #4, Winter 2013

This time of year, we hear so much about
the importance of savoring the season.
For more information about massage therapy,
visit www.massagetherapy.com or www.abmp.com.
And yet—thanks to the calendar—this year's
holiday season didn't just feel rushed, it was rushed!
Hanukkah and Thanksgiving overlapped to the
point of becoming "Thanksgivukkah," and the gap
between the latter and Christmas was a week shorter
than normal. So, whew, Happy New Year 2014!
What's a body to do? To whatever degree possible:
breathe, bask, enjoy, and give the gift of bodywork—
to yourself or a loved one. Stepping away for an
hour from the busyness of the season is priceless.
You know there's nothing like that refreshed
feeling when you emerge from a bodywork session.
Transitioning out of a hot stone treatment, I always
feel like a Gumby girl. When I emerge from a Thai
massage session, I'm sure I can leap mountains.
Whatever your favorite modality, you pick
the aftereffects. Sign yourself up. Sign up
someone you care for. Just do it. It will help
you cope, enjoy, and embrace the new year.
