Happy Summer 2018! The summer season has begun, which means long days of sun (we hope), warm weather (we hope, again), and for many of us....VACATION!  We look forward to this all year long, as a getaway brings exploring new or favorite places, trying seasonal foods, and a change of routine.

HOW TO BOOST YOUR BRAIN HEALTH WITH FOOD

If you read my last blog recipe, you would know that I am a self-declared terrible cook.  I forgot to mention, I am also a terrible baker.  For some reason, I am truly incapable of sifting, measuring, rolling, and I'm very prone to over pouring and burning. C’est la vie! That’s why I love this particular…

CURLING - IT REALLY IS AN OLYMPIC SPORT!

You heard me – curling REALLY is an Olympic Sport!  Four of us found that out a few weeks ago when we participated in the Howard Center’s 2018 Curling Challenge at Cairns Arena in South Burlington.  We PT360ers love fundraising events, especially when it takes the form of a fun challenge, so of course…

It seems like everyone and their brother has struggled with this nagging foot pain. So, what exactly is plantar fascia? Fascia is a type of connective tissue that can be found…

WARM-UPS SHOULD BE DYNAMIC... AND FUN!

As springtime approaches and the days become longer, many of us take our workouts from inside to the great outdoors. Whether you enjoy walking, biking, hiking, running or any other activity (how about unicycling?), it’s important to know how to warm up properly. This is especially true if you have had…
