The Invisible and Ignored. Lymph

When we talk about body systems, the ones commonly mentioned are cardio-vascular, nervous, muscular and skeletal.

That is three times more than blood! If you […]

In June 2016 I spent time visiting family in Eastern Europe. I noticed that my younger brother Denis looked more peaceful and present than ever.

Diphragm also helps to pump the […]

OCD or do you worry too much?

OCD – obsessive compulsive disorder. It is everywhere. I have a close friend that often feels she did not turn off the stove or did not lock the doors. And she cannot just ”snap out” of it. No one can. I have a few obsessions too. Like looking for triple digits on street cars. Or […]

Brain. Use it or loose it

Even though I was always considered as an above average student, I have struggled in school and college. Certain tasks, like focusing, paying close attention and remembering the material for the long period of time were challenging. They were not bad enough for me to fail academically, but there was always a sense of lack, […]

Get rid of double chin. Fast.

Get rid of double chin. Fast. Usually when I read titles like this, I assume it sounds too good to be true. And most often than not it is. But, since I tried this exercise myself and saw immediate results, I did not know how else to title this post. As a massage therapist, I […]
