April Massage Special


 Welcome to April AND National Organ Donation month!
My massage special this month is very personal to me and all about saving lives through organ and tissue donation. Organ donation is an issue that impacts thousands of people on a daily basis. While I encourage everyone to become an organ donor, I think it's important for everyone to have the facts before making the commitment. Did you know:
  • Over 121,932 people are currently waiting for an organ transplant. Every 10 minutes, a new person is added to the organ transplant waiting list. During your visit to someone may have been added to the waiting list.
  • 90% of Americans say they support organ donation.
  • On average, 18 people die every day because they did not receive a needed organ.
  • The success rate for organ transplantation is between 80% – 90%.
  • A person of any age can become an organ donor. No one is too old or too young. Both newborns and senior citizens have been organ donors. There are people of all ages on the organ transplant waiting list and young people are better suited to receive organs from those close to their age and size. The condition of your organs is more important than age. If you are under 18, you may need the permission of a parent or guardian to donate.
  • Signing your driver’s license does NOT make you an organ donor. You must also register to become a donor at
  • Heart and lung transplants must happen within 5 hours. Not all organs require a 5 hour window or less, however most require less than 24 hours. Bone and other tissue can sit for years before donation takes place.
  • You do NOT have to be deceased in order to be an organ & tissue donor. A healthy person can become a ‘living donor’ by donating a kidney, or a part of the liver, lung, intestine, blood or bone marrow. More than 6,000 living donations occur each year. One in four donors is not biologically related to the recipient.
  • If you have a medical condition you may still be able to donate your organs. Doctors will evaluate the condition of your organs when the time arises.
  • You can impact up to 100 lives by being an organ & tissue donor. One deceased donor can save up to eight lives through organ donation and can save and enhance more than 100 lives through the lifesaving and healing gift of tissue donation. Organs that can be donated after death are the heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas and small intestines. Tissues include corneas, skin, veins, heart valves, tendons, ligaments and bones.
  • The kidney is the most commonly needed organ for transplant. A kidney generally has a lifespan of 9 years after donation. Most diseases that effect the kidney effect both at the same time.
  • Each day, an average of 79 people receive organ transplants.
  • To date, 461,776 transplants have occurred in the U.S. since 1988.
Please go to to sign up and please encourage family and friends to do the same, it only takes a minute but means a lifetime to someone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart....and lungs and liver and kidneys and pancreas....:)
To encourage everyone to sign up and to say thank you for this life giving gift I am offering any massage and energy work at half price to anyone who is an organ and tissue donor and has it noted on their drivers license or can show proof. All massage and energy work will be 50% off regular price from April 1-30.

ESOTERIC HEALING NOW OFFERED: Exciting news! I have completed Part 4 of a four part class on Esoteric Healing. I am so excited about this and am offering it as one more "tool in my tool bag". It is an amazing healing modality. For those of you who aren't familiar with what Esoteric Healing is, here it is in a nutshell. 

There is an energy field surrounding all living beings.  Within this energy field is where the energetic cause of disease seems to be located. When you are healthy, energy flows easily throughout the body and when energy is blocked or restricted within the energy field, this is often associated with physical body disease and mental and/or emotional issues. These problems within the energy field are often present before the physical illness or emotional issue appears. Using trained hands, a practioner of Esoteric Healing can identify areas that are weak or congested within the energy field. Using various balancing techniques, your energy field can be restored to a more flowing, healthy state. This  results in improved physical, emotional, and mental conditions, e.g., fibromyalgia, cardiac problems, gastrointestinal disorders, depression, bipolar syndrome, and numerous other conditions.

Please call me and schedule an appointment for your Esoteric Healing appointment soon.
