January update

Dear friends,

As I'm typing this up, the snow is coming down! I love it! Snow storms, power outages and more snow! This has been my favorite winter in years! Dig it!

The February sliding-scale massage clinic is coming soon and there are still a couple openings!

For full details about the sliding-scale clinic, go here...
February sliding-scale massage clinic

The sliding-scale clinic may be changing forms a bit soon. I'm trying to get all of my office mates involved in an affordable, low-cost walk-in massage and acupuncture clinic. We're still discussing the details, but I'll let you know as soon as I do!

In other news, I have recently completed my training and received a certificate in Advanced Myofascial Techniques! I've found the methods, which are heavily inspired by Rolfing, to be a very direct evolution of the work I've been developing for years. I feel I'm doing effective work, facilitating true change in my clients.

Next up on my continuing education schedule is a March workshop on massage for cancer patients and survivors. Having had an extremely rare lymphoma just after high school, it's becoming increasingly important for me to give back to this population.

Thank you for walking this earth, my friends... Until our paths cross next...

Blessings and love,
Hamid : )
