#11 - Spring time

Greetings,

The newsletter is a bit delayed this month due to a torn phone-cable. But we're up and running again and communication is alive.

With March the sun is coming and spring is beginning. It fills us with energy and new drive to undertake our challenges. It's a good time to start regular exercises and take good care of oneself.


New articles this last month:

Massage books reviews II
I've bought and studied more massage books. They're very useful and have taught me a lot about the more clinical aspects of massage as well as other techniques and systems.

Taunaki.com - your resource to wellness
Finally, we're here! Taunaki is launching and I'm all excited about it. It's an event I've worked towards for more than a year. And since September I've been working more or less full time on the project. It's been a very exciting process, very interesting and it's taught me a lot. I must admit I've greatly enjoyed the work in spite of frustrations and stress.

Wry neck (torticollis)
Wry neck, or torticollis, can happen very suddenly and without any obvious reason. The experts do not agree on what precisely causes it. Sometimes it can be caused by a trauma, a fall, a car accident or a sudden movement. In that case it's always advisable to see a doctor to rule out more serious causes like a slipped disc or other things.

Wellness plans
A wellness plan is different than a massage treatment plan. Where a treatment plan focuses on treating an injury or acute physical problem and prevent it from happening again, a wellness plan focuses on your overall health and well-being. A wellness plan aims towards preventing illness and diseases, on improving your life quality and wellness.
