I’m so pleased to finally have a great new road sign installed for Brookstone Massage Therapy. This sign was expertly designed by the fabulous graphic artist Vanessa Wilson (pictured here with me). The actual sign panel was built and installed by Grey Signs of Fredericton.
The sign is already paying for itself with new clients noticing the sign and then searching out my website. I’m hoping that this sign will help me meet a lot of new people and introduce them to Brookstone Massage Therapy.
Massage of the abdomen (or belly) is a treatment that many people don't know about and that others fear. The abdomen is an emotionally significant part of our bodies. Some are proud of their abdomen, many are ashamed of it. Most people feel vulnerable in that region.
The abdomen can benefit greatly from massage. This treatment is gentle and is designed to address the myriad of muscles which cross the belly. The therapist will use strokes which follow the motion of your large intestine.
Abdominal massage is usually performed with the client on their back. Sometimes with knees drawn up. The RMT covers the client's chest with one draping and then brings the other draping down to just below the belly button, exposing the abdomen for treatment. Long gentle strokes soothe cramping muscles. Clockwise, circular strokes help move things along in the bowel. If you're constipated, this treatment can help a lot. If you have diarrhea - this treatment is not for you! Symptoms of PMS can be somewhat alleviated with this treatment (occasionally made worse though).
If you get regular massage to stay healthy, you should ask your therapist about abdominal massage. I like doing abdominal massage because I know its almost certain to make you feel better and move better.

This is my friend Kathleen. She's a Registered Nurse who is dedicating herself to serve God overseas in mission work with SIM. She's done a couple of short-term mission trips to Uganda and now she's raising funds and support to move to Benin, Africa where she'll minister to the people of that country with her nursing skills.
I'm blessed to be able to help Kathleen's efforts in a small way. In the month of January, anyone who wants to support Kathleen's mission...and get an awesome massage...can come to my clinic for a treatment. I'll donate half of the proceeds of those massages to Kathleen's fundraising efforts. My rates are: $50 for half hour, $80 for 1 hour and $100 for 90 mins.
Have a look at the online booker on my website: www.brookstonemassagetherapy.com If you see a vacancy that appeals to you in January and you want to help Kathleen, just book yourself in and let me know that the session is to support Kathleen.

After much painting and cleaning and paperwork, the big day has finally arrived. Brookstone Massage Therapy is now open and ready to serve clients. Please drop by and visit me if you get a chance. Brookstone Massage Therapy is located in the interior hallway of 1757 Hanwell Rd, near Porter's Diner. There is still a lot of room for improvement but the clinic will get better and better quickly. I have a number of awesome clients booked-in this week already and I can't wait to meet them. I'm trying out a new online booking software. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Come visit my booth at the annual Canadian Forces Base Gagetown Fall Expo on Saturday 12 September 2015. The show is free and runs from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at building H12. I'll be splitting my table with my personal training business (FEAT). I'm really looking forward to meeting lots of new people letting them know about my new clinic.
