Our Second Internet Newsletter 

            This is our 20th Bailey Therapeutic Massage Newsletter! Our first-ever newsletter was mailed out through the U. S. Postal Service for Valentines Day 1994.
     This is our second internet newsletter from Bailey Therapeutic Massage, and the STAR Tech Healing and
Learning Center. What a difference twelve years makes in putting together such a work. Back in the “old days” Barry did everything cut and paste, literally. It took him weeks to put two, then four pages together. Today the process is much faster and more attractive, with the addition of color and contemporary graphics. Even more thrilling is how changes can be made instantly. No more running to the copy shop to make size and copy changes every few hours.
     If you have friends or neighbors who you know are our clients, please let them know that our newsletters will only be sent via the internet in the future. We must have e-mail addresses to do this, and request that anyone who has not given us their e-mail address, do so by mailing to Barry at bb601@verizon.net.
     We hope you enjoy receiving the news and information that we offer here. Our aim is to help you to have a healthier and happier life by bringing you information and ideas to make your life better.

                                                                                     Nancy and Barry Bailey

 
~~~Spice Rack Pain Relief~~~

             Inflammation is often the cause of the pain that people feel in their muscles and joints. Massage is regularly what sufferers turn to for relief, and more often than not is quite helpful in relieving the pain caused by inflammation. Supplementary methods can also be used by clients to complement the marvelous effects of their massage.
            Additional pain relief help can be found in the kitchen, on the spice rack. The spices curcumin or turmeric and ginger are only two natural plant-derived seasonings that have been used over the years for controlling inflammation and pain.
            Curcumin is a member of the ginger family. It, like ginger, is a root, growing underground. Turmeric is the seasoning that gives curry powder its yellow color. It is also an important ingredient of prepared mustard. And remember the old mustard plasters that our grandparents and parents used? In this case cumin was used topically. Used either topically or ingested orally, turmeric and ginger suppress inflammation.
            Ginger is referred to in the Ayurvedic medical system as the universal medicine. Ginger also reduces inflammation, and has been used throughout the world to treat joint pain and arthritis as well as to relieve headaches.
            Using curcumin/turmeric and ginger in the food we prepare can help knock down inflammation in a more natural way than turning to over the counter drugs.
            One note of importance about ginger. Ginger is a blood thinner, and should not be eaten while taking blood-thinner medication. Also, if you are scheduled for surgery, you should tell your doctor you have been eating ginger. You should stop eating ginger three to four weeks before a scheduled surgery.

What other things your therapists are doing

            Barry has been teaching classes at night in the Acton-Boxborough Community Education program. He has already given classes that teach self-relief from pain for the lower arm and hand, lower legs, and neck and shoulders. In the fall, he taught an eight week Friday morning block of Active Stretching for EveryBODY classes.

            Tuesday February 7 Barry teaches a new class, Anywhere Massage for Everybody. Advertisements for this class invite partners and couples to learn how to do simple massage techniques that can be done anywhere. Parents are encouraged to bring their children and teenagers and learn to do the through-clothing massage techniques on each other.

            Nancy has been working on Coppelia, the spring production for Dance Prism, Concord. The ballet is scheduled to be performed in Sudbury and Littleton on April 22nd, 23rd and in Andover on May 7th.

            Coppelia will feature two guest artists from the Columbia City Ballet, Columbia, South Carolina. Guest artists are Miranda Bailey and Terry Blogg. Terry recently returned from a year-long tour of duty in Iraq.

            Nancy is currently working on plans for scenery and costume design and execution for this light classical ballet that is based on a tale by E. T., Hoffman. Coppelia (the Girl with Enamel Eyes) is a very child-friendly ballet, with a beautiful score by Leo Delibes. The story takes place in a magical Toy Shop full of life-size dolls. The audience in invited to a “wedding celebration”/reception  following each performance.

            For tickets you can call Dance Prism at 978 371-1038 or visit the official website at www.danceprism.com.

            Barry has a new weekly offering at the Learning Center. Upper Body Self-Recovery Clinic / Class addresses upper body soft tissue tightness and pain. Personal attention is given to the participants who are in each class, and they are taught how to relieve their own pain by using Active Isolated Stretching, STAR Stretching, and various other techniques.

Each hour-long class is $15. 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

            Nancy and Barry regularly attend the Hand in Hand Networking meetings for Massage Therapists and other Body Workers. These meetings offer health care practitioners a chance to compare and share concerns, problems and successes. At each meeting a speaker offers information and ideas, and may share techniques for working better with clients.

            The next meeting is scheduled for Friday, February 17 in Northborough, MA. Meetings run from 12:15 until 2 pm.

            If you are a therapist or Body Worker, or know one who might be interested in attending, you can contact Marilyn Taylor, the Leader and Organizer. Her e-mail address is marilynataylor@prodigy.net

Did You Know?
 

          New evidence is supporting the belief that accumulating exercise over the day is just as effective as exercising all at once.  What could be more logical? This is how man has moved and evolved since his beginning. Only in today’s culture do we feel we have to squeeze all of the movement that our body wants and needs, into an hour or two, several times a week.

So, climb those stairs instead of taking the elevator, and park your car in the far corner of the parking lot and walk for a few minutes. Garden, walk the dog, play with your children and pets knowing that it is a completely natural and healthy thing to do.

Continue to exercise on a regular schedule, but don’t beat yourself up, when you miss a workout.
