Recently my friend Laura Losos, who is also the Director of Health Education at the Springboard Clinic here in Toronto, had the chance to sit down to discuss an article she was writing for Village Living Magazine‘s online publication. Her goal was to educate people on ways to be more mindful in their massage therapy experiences. From talking to people about what I do, I already knew that people just aren’t as familiar with the massage therapy experience as you would think, and still associate it with a “spa type” of treatment. What we wanted to do is to help people realize that like any other manual therapy, massage can cater to many of our healthcare needs. This includes treating symptoms of ADHD, something the Springboard clinic specializes in. By coming up with 10 “tips” to help people get more out of their massage, we hope that everyone can be more mindful in their massage experiences.
