They say, "tidy house, tidy mind". If you spend your time in a cluttered space, chances are you have a cluttered mind.

How Does Massage Improve Sleep?

John L. Pantera Jan 10, 2018 Health

When you get a little stressed, or a little busy, or even have a little extra fun, what’s the first thing to get compromised? When life gets active, your sleep tends to go by the wayside.

It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas, right? It’s only when you catch a big whiff of your mom’s homemade toffee or your favorite coffee drink that you really know that the holiday season has arrived.  But have you ever wondered what it is about scents that can so quickly and effectively elicit such strong reactions? It’s likely thanks to the...

We're Getting Salty

John L. Pantera Dec 6, 2017 Massage Therapy

Pink Himalayan salt has been getting a lot of attention lately. You can find salt lamps, recipes for salt baths, and even premade salt shower scrubs on wellness websites and in health stores everywhere. Proponents encourage you to wear it in a pouch around your neck, mix it in your nasal wash, use it in a foot soak, and as a treatment for acne. But is this pink salt worth the...

John L. Pantera Nov 29, 2017 Health

They lurk on elevator buttons and door handles. They thrive on grocery cart handles and ATM buttons. And, most likely, they’re everywhere in your home. Germs from bacteria and viruses tend to run rampant in this time of year, and this might be making you a little worried. After all, it’s the holiday season; you’ve simply got no time to be sick!

How Can I Practice Essentialism?

John L. Pantera Nov 15, 2017 Life

Do you ever feel like you have too much? It can be an embarrassingly unique problem in our land of plenty in the United States, and yet so many of us live in a spirit of excess. This is a notion efficiently demonstrated by the fact that while the size of the average American home has nearly tripled over the last 50 years, there remains enough offsite rentable self-storage space...

5 Reasons Why You Need Better Sleep, Now

John L. Pantera Nov 8, 2017 Massage Therapy

If you remember, last week we talked about the different ways that massage can improve and promote sleep. Thank goodness it can! Because while we delved a little bit into what effect sleep deprivation can have on the body and mind, we barely scratched the surface. There is much more to be said about how sleep, or lack thereof, negatively affects the body. And considering that...

Got the Cool-Weather Blues?

John L. Pantera Nov 1, 2017 General

Whether you were ready for it or not, autumn has officially arrived, in all its apple-scented glory. The golden leaves, the pumpkin-flavored everything, and the cooler days can be a wonderfully refreshing change from the long, hot days of summer. However, this season can also bring with it some undesirable effects on your mood. If you find yourself coming down with the “winter...

Can Massage Relieve Headaches?

John L. Pantera Oct 25, 2017 Health

It’s clear that, as a whole, we need SOMETHING to deal with our headaches, considering that an estimated 80-90% of the population will experience tension headaches, and 17% of us will experience migraines. In fact, as a nation, headaches are our most commonly talked-about ailment. Over the counter medications can help, but they have a batch of possible side effects of their...

Do I Need to See the Same Massage Therapist Every Time?

John L. Pantera Oct 18, 2017 Massage Therapy

You’ve got a sprinkler guy, an electrician, and a plumber you’d trust with your life. You can give a recommendation to anyone who needs a fantastic mechanic or a house painter.  What about with massage? Is the same philosophy true: that you’re better off seeing the same therapist time after time? Do you have a regular massage therapist in your contact list?...
