Tips for the Traveler


We love having our practice at the Seaport Boston Hotel, where we have the opportunity to meet people from across the US and Canada and around the globe. While traveling is exhilarating and exciting, it can also take a toll on the body. Movement is vital to our bodies sense of balance and well being. When we are traveling for long periods of time, toxins can build and we can experience swelling in our extremities. Change in atmospheric pressure and the stress of getting from here to there can also wreak havoc on the body.

Be sure to drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol and caffeine, get up and stretch and do ankle and shoulder circles to keep everything moving.

Therapeutic massage before, during or after traveling offers many benefits including:
    Reduce stress levels
    Reduce jet-lag
    Rids the body of toxins

Candace Pert who was an internationally known psychopharmacologist and neuroscientist writes about her massage experience while traveling in her book, "Everything you need to know to feel Go(o)d. She is one of the scientists featured in "What the bleep do we know...."

"The massage was exactly what I needed. With my baggage still en route, an old boyfriend meeting us for dinner, Michael off God knows where, and 500 people soon to be sitting down, ready to hear me talk about the scientific explanation for energy healing- I really needed to just melt away for an hour. ...I got up from the table, freed from my worrying personality with my heart wide open I knew what to do. There was a world waiting to heal, and I'd be onstage in exactly two hours with an opportunity to do just that." (p. 190-191)
