PRACTICING GRATITUDE THROUGH YOGA

Nov 22, 2019
Let’s get creative with our gratitude practice, as we know giving thanks regularly leads to a stronger immune system, more energy, and a deeper feeling of connection to others. Yoga and gratitude seem…

GRATITUDE IS FOR MORE THAN THANKSGIVING

Gratitude is for more than just Thanksgiving season.  Many of us readily express our thanks and gratitude in November because of Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday, by the way) but we are less likely to do it throughout the rest of the year.  Maybe it is because we are too busy or too stressed or too…

I WOULD DO IT ALL AGAIN - A PATIENT'S JOURNEY IN PHYSICAL THERAPY

I had been uncomfortable for about three years before I decided to have my hip replaced.  At first I only experienced a stiffness after a long bike ride or run but later, it became an ache and then a sharp pain when simply walking up a flight of stairs. At that point, I couldn’t sleep through the night…

A (KINDA) BRIEF HISTORY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY

Did you know that October is more than just the month when you can enjoy pumpkin-spiced-anything-and-everything, binge on apple cider donuts, and layer on the flannel & oversized scarves?  While I certainly enjoy partaking in all the above, October is extra special to me because it’s also National Physical…

GROUP EXERCISE IS FUN…..REALLY FUN!

STAYING HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELING: SELF-CARE ON THE ROAD

Summer is the season for traveling and it’s no wonder why – the days are longer & warmer, the kids (if you have them) are free from school, and there are more events on the calendar than there are seagulls on the beach.  We head to the mountains, to the beaches, and to the cities to explore new areas…

STAYING HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELING: PREPARATION IS KEY!

Traveling can be an exciting and enriching experience.  On the other hand, it can also be extremely stressful and exhausting.  Whether it be for work or pleasure, venturing away from the comforts and familiarities of home can come with its challenges.  For instance, staying healthy or maintaining healthy…

CAN DRY NEEDLING HELP WITH SHOULDER PAIN?

Summer is upon us!  As the days become hotter, many of us will flock to the lakes, ponds, and reservoirs to cool down.  Whether we swim, kayak, canoe, paddle board, wakeboard, or water ski, this requires the use of our upper extremities.  As Jen mentioned in our last blog, the top three injuries for…

SHOULDER RECOVERY FOR SUMMER SPORTS

Summers in Vermont are short and sweet.  The three months of warmth and sunshine are packed full of lake and mountain activities such as walking, hiking, paddle boarding, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, playing volleyball, softball, tennis or a mix of all of the above. Many of our outdoor…
