February Newsletter

Dear *|FNAME|*:    

Let it not snow! The cold weather has been bitter here in Wisconsin. We have been hit with many snow storms, and one day of -50 with the wind chill. We hope if you are experiencing the same weather or worse, you find some warmth and stay positive.
This month we are featuring another blog on Wellness! Last month, we talked about Society’s Flawed View on Wellness (which make people sick, or keeps them sick). This month, we have a blog on how to Obtain Wellness: The Most Important Healthy Choices to Pay Attention to.

We have also updated our content on Massage Therapy to provide you with an in-depth look at how it may help with various chronic pain conditions.

Chronic Pain ResourcesQuick Guide to Massage Therapy 

  • Massage is not just for relaxing tight muscles. It is becoming more and more popular as an effective treatment for medical conditions both directly and in conjunction with other treatments.
  • There are many different types of massage, but typically they all fall into one of two categories: rehabilitation and relaxation massage.
  • Learn about 12 types of massage that may help with chronic pain. 

What are the Benefits of Massage for Chronic Pain?

Massage therapy can help with relaxation for both the mind and the body. Reasons for massage therapy may include relaxing muscles, lowering stress and anxiety levels, reducing pain, rehabilitating after an injury, or simply improving overall health and wellness.

Exploring Wellness: Obtaining Wellness: The Most Important Healthy Choices to Pay Attention To

By: Jena Ann

Chronic Pain ResourcesAre you living a wellness lifestyle?
I read wellness articles ALL the time. Therefore, I can tell you there is a ton of information out there on the different things you should be doing to achieve wellness. It is almost overwhelming, you can’t follow all the wellness advice out there, because literally wellness will become your life.

So instead, I’ve provided categories of what I see as the most important areas of wellness. This is based on what I’ve learned from my life experience, and reading hundreds and hundreds of articles. 

The 9 Most Important Healthy Choices

To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected."
