I've been posting a few videos about head, neck, or jaw pain at my other site Help Head Pain. Look for them on Instagram too.
Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

These new families are looking for a new EVERYTHING!

Town Hall contacts these new families each week as soon as they move into their new home.

These new families will find new places to eat, work out, wash their car......they need a new Hair Salon, Spa, Auto Repair Shop, Optometrist, Dry Cleaner, Pet Groomer, Day Care Facility, Florist, Nail Salon, Pharmacy......you get the idea. They are actively seeking new local businesses and creating new purchasing patterns. They will become someone's next new local, loyal customer.

Town Hall will direct them to you before your competition even knows they are here.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one business per category, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

Thanks.

Such an early start on a Saturday in my office. All of my family was still sleeping when I left. But needed to start early for enough evaluation time for a new client with jaw issues.
I am more sharp at 8am versus 8 pm.

Many of my clients love my new location because of the close proximity to 99 Ranch. One client said I had to try salted egg potato chips, so he brought me a bag. Thanks!

I visited North Carolina last week and went walking through downtown Belmont. That corner upstairs window was my 3rd office starting in 2006. It felt a little funny that I could look out my window and see my old Junior High.

My post on my other business.

October 7 is National Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day. As a massage therapist specializing in head, neck and jaw pain I offer my clients and online learners support to get relief from trigeminal neuralgia and other facial pains.
.
For those with this condition, I see you and acknowledge the pain that you experience. I wish that you get recognized with the right diagnosis. May you find trained doctors, dentists, physical and massage therapists to give you relief and advice for self-care.
.
I spent the morning re-educating myself about the 5th cranial nerve, how it can get irritated and how I can give relief within my scope of practice.
#TrigeminalNeuralgiaAwareness

[09/16/21]   My heart smiled!
Recently I worked on a woman who was to deliver her twins within two days. She just sent me a photo of their precious bodied snuggled up next to one another. It was so nice to see two calm and grinning unmasked faces so close to each other.
Thank you clients for bringing me through this process with you!
(photo not included since I didn't ask for permission to share).

Back to investing in self care! Sometimes it has to be a little uncomfortable to get you to your goal. I went to Next Level to get an adjustment, a proper evaluation, dry needling, muscular re-education & knowledge. Then coated my shoulder in magnesium oil once I got to my office. Thanks Steven & Collin!

Same Hospital And Insurer, But The Bill For His 2nd Jaw Procedure Was $24,000 More 08/30/2021

Same Hospital And Insurer, But The Bill For His 2nd Jaw Procedure Was $24,000 More

Listen to this about on person's medical payment journey when he had upper & lower jaw surgery. His insurance changed during two stages and set him up for really high bills.
But there is another interesting element I want you to hear. Once he got the upper jaw expanded, which helped his airway, his blood pressure went down. Look at the airway! And then see what the least invasive way to treat that is.

Same Hospital And Insurer, But The Bill For His 2nd Jaw Procedure Was $24,000 More To realign the man's jaw and ease his chronic pain and high blood pressure, he would need two operations, the surgeon said. Both procedures went well, but the patient was shocked by the second bill.

First day in the new office location! Turned out better than expected. I’m so excited to have hung some important art pieces from my home. Polish cut outs that have to be over 55 years old & a piece I call Tire Fire.

Moving day! Relocating to a temporary office for a few months. I’m really going to miss my studio & excited to get back here next year.

Sending positive thoughts to my long term client going in for a complete shoulder surgery today. May this give her the relief she has been wanting so she can get back to her active lifestyle.

I once dreamed of owning a massage practice that also had rotating art. Now I’m wondering how much art is too much art in my temporary studio? I want to borrow some of my home art to hang there. Hum, what to bring…

Why did a flock of chickens cross the road?
To block my path getting to work.

Did you know that we recently remodeled their coop? Looking good.

I love the summer Olympics 🥇 and Paralympics! Did you know I've had a small connection to them?
.
In 2005 I was teaching at a massage school in Charlotte. I took the students to work at the Speedo National Diving Championships. They'd get tired early so I did a lot of massage on the athletes, plus I was stoked to do so. I got the privilege to work on past olympians and future olympians.
.
Now I just like watching the diving event with my kids and pointing out the commentators or athletes I've worked on. Gives me mom cool points.

[07/21/21]   The things I do for clients knowing what will follow! A client with extreme scoliosis and spinal rods mentioned discomfort on her ribs from bras. She said her doctors don't really care about that stuff. But I love finding solutions & helping her look for relief. Since I see the body, the bends, the torques, then I can see the irritations and options for relief. Sent her some suggestions after searching and now my all my add suggestions are bras and undergarmets. But by those models' sultry poses I question if they too have scoliosis. Stand up straight so I can see the fit!!

[07/20/21]   Temporary office location finalized! I'll begin working out of that office on August 15. It is at the SE corner of N Lamar and Airport Blvd. Of course, all details will be in your confirmation email.

Flashback! A photo from 2016 after I opened my current office. I wanted to add my personal touch to my practice again and sewed many an appliquéd onesie after working with a pregnant client. Glad I did it when I had the time!
Bet you didn't know that when I opened my business 18.5 years ago I used to hand paint or draw art on my gift certificates.

After a full day of working on clients, these hands are going to get fingerprinted. Did you know that Texas massage therapists are now required to get fingerprinted when renewing their license? My fingers are feeling popular today! #fingerprint

As much as I look out for my clients, they look out for me. A regular client & I held each other accountable to going for overdue skin checks from our dermatologists. They found a little something I didn’t catch. Your turn! Go get your body taken care off.
Oh, and the first available appointment was 2.5 months out at my dermatologist. Not as bad as my office’s 3.5 weeks out.

So nice to see old regular clients again! This month I've gotten to work with 3 clients I haven't seen in 15 months due to the pandemic!
I've also had some extra romaine lettuce from my garden to share. #growfood

My AC took a small vacation, but my neighbor was awesome & able to figure out a switch in my breaker box only needed to be replaced. AND, he had a spare switch! Grateful & cool for my evening client.

Tried a little experiment to address my jaw tension while working. I'm always wearing a N95 mask and then add the face shield when I'm doing neck or intraoral massage on a client.
I first applied TJz Balm to my temples, cheek and mastoid process (bone behind the ear) then wore my mask + shield. I was looking to see if this would create a greenhouse effect with the product and become too intense on my skin or near my eyes. It wasn't! So, I think it is safe and effective to use TJz Balm under your mask.
The lovely wintergreen green scent was a bonus!
What's TJz Balm?
It is a topical OTC pain relief drug to address jaw muscle and joint pain. It only has 6 ingredients and is 100% botanical.
