My March Through Time

I have been hiding. This move to the Keys has been life-transforming for me in both very positive and somewhat negative ways.

Massage Blues: Tales from the Trenches IV

It should go without saying that if you are going for a massage, it is a good idea to take a quick shower. It should definitely go without saying that if you workout first, a shower is mandatory before your massage. One fine morning, a female client arrived somewhat late for her appointment.

Massage Blues: Tales from the Trenches III

The man on the other side of the telephone line immediately launched into his story. He had been battling with some weight-related health issues, and his doctor had assured him that if he lost weight, he could stop taking his medication. As a result, he became very motivated, and had taken up bicycling. He had lost lots of weight, and was feeling great. The problem, he said, was that the pressure of the bike seat to his nether region, was causing a loss of sensation and numbness. Was that something I could assist him with?
