Life is change!

Dear friends,

Life is change!

I signed my divorce papers earlier this week. I wept. And, I smiled. And, I got cranky. And, I flailed. And, I made funny noises and stomped my feet. Then, I laughed at myself and started breathing deep.

I bought medium sized shirts the same day I signed the papers. I've worn extra large for ages. I let go of the conception that I am fat.

Then, I got sick... just a cold for a couple of days. Just to slow myself down enough to fully experience the life shift.

I got rid of my big screen TV. Just don't need it.

I'm running and jumping and moving my body in ways that I've never moved my body before. Feels good!

Someone new is in my life. She makes me feel inspired beyond measure.

I'm becoming alive.

I'm finding happiness.

I'm in love.

And, most days, I'm spilling over.

All of this... just to study myself. To understand through experience.

Yeah.... life is change... and, life is pretty darn spiffy when I get out of my own way!

Just in case you missed it, I was recently interviewed by David at Living with Back Pain... that was dandy! Read the interview here...


Until our paths cross next, my friends....

Blessing and love,
Hamid : )

Today's massage scam

My fellow massage therapists.... don't even respond to requests like this. They're always traveling and request a very high number of massages. Very often 10. Trust me... ol' Hank is not legit.

Stay safe out there!



My name is Hanks blake from Gordon,Georgia but presently on an official assignment in Buracest,Romania.I will need 10 sessions(1hr per session) of swedish massage as soon as am back in the states between April 25-March 5.I couldn't locate any message therapist around my hotel here in bucarest and this is really not good enough for my body as am used to it.I will be coming to your city during the short time i will be spending in the states before going back to my assignment.

Please,let me know your rate for a total of 10 sessions and kindly provide me with a schedule that fits into your program between the dates stated above.I am looking forward to hearing from you.Have a wonderful day

Warm Regards,

Variations in bones

Here's a great resource for you massage therapists and anatomy geeks! It shows much of the normal range of shape variations in the human bone structure. This can greatly effect range of motion and create a wide variety in the muscular and myofascial systems.
