Vol. XIV, NO. 1 - #21                                                                                   Spring 2006

[Below are select articles from Newsletter #21]


             All living creatures need to be touched. Domesticated animals in particular thrive as a result of the care and touch of their masters. What dog doesn’t like his belly rubbed or a scratch behind the ear? Cats, usually a more independent companion, are more content to just be near, and benefit from the comfort of snuggling up to someone who cares for them.

Human beings need to be touched.  Without touch, we can become ill.  Add stress to the equation and matters just get worse.  "Stress-related disorders make up between 80-and-90 percent of the ailments that bring people to family-practice physicians.  What they require is someone to listen, someone to touch them, someone to care about them.  Unfortunately, that does not exist in modern medicine" says Joan Borysenko, PhD.  She goes on to say "I believe massage therapy is absolutely key in the healing process . . . Nurturing is an incredible component to the foundation to the healing process, allowing yourself to surrender completely to the care of another person.  That can only happen during a massage . . .Physical touch releases growth hormones that will help your immune system recover.  Without touch, the immune system cannot recharge.  Everybody needs to be touched.”

              In European and other countries, touch is much more a part of life than it is in the United States.  Natural Health Magazine reported that "In a single day, a Frenchman will touch, and be touched, 100 times more than his American counterpart." Massage is a way of receiving that touch if you do not get it another way. Massage can relieve stress as well as boost the immune system and offer a content state of being.

What other things your therapists are doing


            Barry has been teaching his Full body Active Stretching for EveryBODY Class at the Harvard Ridge/SWYMFIT Fitness Center in Boxborough on Saturdays.  This is his first experience teaching in a Fitness Facility outside the STAR Tech Healing and Learning Center.

 x x x

            Barry attended the Massachusetts Men’s Gathering May 12-14 and gave two workshops. He offered his popular Full Body Active Stretching for EveryBODY Workshop again, as well as his Self-Help for Arm and Hand Overuse Workshop.


 The average adult has about 18 square feet of skin.

That's a lot of surface to get massaged.

That’s a lot of area for good, healthy touch!

  Our name in Lights!

             We are thrilled to announce that our new landlord has updated the lighted sign that hangs on the front of our building, over the entrance to our office and teaching space. The new name panels with Suite numbers is finally an up to date handy on-street directory of the Services and Businesses that are located inside.
            The sign is backlit, and gently illuminates the sidewalk in front of our entrance, making it more inviting, and a safer place at night. During the daylight hours, the information on the sign is a welcome change from the out of date names that have been on display for so many years.

            The next time you come to 14 Nason Street, look for our name in lights outside the building.
