“Question Mark” by Michelle Meiklejohn at www.FreeDigitalPhotos.net
I’m sitting here tonight brainstorming. Trying to think of something I want to write about here. I’m drawing blanks. Then it hits me, it’s not just about what I want to write about, but what you, you the public wants to read. So I am putting it to you, our clients, fans, friends, family, random passerbyer…
What would YOU like to see us feature in our blog?
I won’t promise that all suggestions will be featured, I will promise that they will be considered!
Stress, a completely natural, can be a useful reaction when it is really needed. Stress is our body’s way of boosting our reactions when we are in danger, helping us to move or react to the stressor quickly. So stress can be a very beneficial thing as long as it is not over used.
In the modern world, we react to things in our everyday life with stress. Think your going to be pushing your project deadline? You can bet that will kick in your stress response. How about running late for work? I think for most people it’s a safe bet to assume that will have the stress effect as well.
Too much of this stress is very unhealthy for our bodies. Stress causes an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing while also tensing our muscles, and suppressing our immune system. Stress can be damaging to every organ of our bodies. It can increase effects of or be the cause of many diseases such as muscle tension, heart disease, digestive problems, depression, sleep deprivation, and on and on. The damage potential is huge.
There are many approaches to help you reduce your stress, and the effects of it on your body. Massage is among those. Massage can reduce your heart rate and blood pressure. It can help to relieve the tension in the muscles, bringing oxygen into them and inducing healing. The relaxation from massage will also help in relieving those emotional stressors.
Schedule your massage today, and let the healing begin.

Well I wanted to take a moment and welcome everyone to our new and improved internet presence. Things are still being worked on so I won’t call it 100%, but you can schedule appointments and read descriptions to our massages. We want to invite you into our office with open “hands”. We strive for this office to be 100% relaxing, and for the time you are here it IS all about you.
There are a few things I would like to touch on about this site. Again it is still and probably always will be in certain state of change. I will be adding our handmade soaps and necklaces to the shop and hopefully gift certificates not far behind. When booking or just shopping in general, just choose pay in store. Once you arrive here you may pay by cash, card, or local checks only. Also when booking, if you are wanting a half hour treatment, you will have to select an entire hour slot. I am working to figure out how to get around that. There should be a place to write any notes, just let me know if you are wanting the appointment on the hour or at the half hour.
Also new is the blog. I will be trying to make blog posts regularly. These blog posts may be fun, or informative. Our prime purpose here at Gallipolis Healing Hands Massage is to help you feel better. Whether that feel better is a reduction of stress, or a reduction of pain. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss massage with you.
Lastly I want to thank Jessica Sisson for building this site, big round of applause for her. In case you do not know Jessica is our office mate, she is a graphic designer. If you have a need a website, I am happy to recommend her to you.
