Massage Week July 13-19
Everybody Deserves a Massage Week - July 13-19
July 13-19, 2014 is dedicated to raise awareness of the benefits of massage, bodywork, and somatic therapies. This event was created in the early 1990’s to unite massage therapists and bodywork professionals to help support the growing trend of maintaining wellness through services their field can provide. Pain and stress relive are the common areas people focus on for massages, but the benefits of this type of therapy range much farther than those two problematic areas everyone experiences.
transformations have occurred in people who utilize this type of care regularly
in combination with self-preservation practices. New comers and skeptics have
been introduced to the benefits massage therapy provides people and has helped
many practices increase their business and spread the word about their unique
products and programs.
There are many ways to get involved and help give back to this helpful and growing community. Click here to find out all the resources you would need in your journey to help create a healthier community.

May is Older Americans Month
As a growing a evolving population, we have showed how we can extend a life and keep everyone healthier and stronger year by year. The proof is in the numbers.
In 1963, President John F. Kennedy met with the National Council of Senior Citizens which resulted in dedicating the month of May as Senior Citizens Month. This was done because they recognized that 17 million people had reached their 65th birthday, and very few programs existed to meet their needs as they aged. A change was made to accommodate a growing population and was projected to increase in number exponentially in the future.
U.S. Census projections indicate that by 2050, 86.7 million people will be aged 65 or more years. This age group would comprise 21 percent of America's projected total population at that time.
In 1980, President Jimmy Carter designated May as Older Americans Month, a time to celebrate the achievements and contributions of older persons to the enrichment and defense of America, particularly those who served in the military.
This year’s theme is “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.” Older adults have a higher risk of injury, especially from falls, than other age groups. Use this month to create awareness of this critical safety issue. To bring this message to your community, the Administration for Community Living has a number of items to check out by clicking here . Visit the website for banners, logos, safety tip sheet and other materials to raise safety awareness and display the “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow” message in your facility and at scheduled events.
May is Osteoporisis Month,
but what is Osteoporosis and who is affected?
Though women of a certain age group are at higher risk, all are at risk for this disease. People tend to have a misguided interpretation of osteoporosis which is equated to frail and fragile bones affecting only the elderly and not the younger and active community. Osteoporosis affects a wide range of people and could quickly alter one’s lifestyle. Luckily this disease is treatable and treatment can help an individual maintain a healthy and active lifestyle without a high risk of fracture or interruption in activities.
Support the awareness campaign that was launched by the National Osteoporosis Foundation this May for National Osteoporosis Month. This campaign is entitled “Break Free from Osteoporosis” and it encourages people to learn the risk factors of the disease and make changes in their own life to build stronger bones.
