Welcome to the first edition of STAYING ACTIVE, the newsletter that helps promote health and wellness. We hope you enjoy the topics we present. 


Bike Right, Bike Fit!

Whether you are a serious bicyclist or a recreational rider, when it comes to bicycling, you and your bike should fit well together. A proper bike fit minimizes discomfort, increases efficiency, and helps prevent pain or injury. Physical therapists can evaluate the way your body is positioned on the bike to make sure that your biking style "fits" your functional goals, whether they are for comfort and endurance or for speed and performance.

5 Questions for Wendy Hildreth, Thai Massage Therapist

What got you interested in Thai Massage?

Hearing from other people about how wonderful it is, and needing therapy for myself that was a little more "therapeutic" than regular massage.


What do you love about it?

I love the relaxed, calm feeling I get when receiving Thai massage. When giving Thai massage, I love stretching with the patient. 


What are the patients saying about Thai Massage?

I hear a lot about how "wonderful" it feels and how the patient's body is looser and more stretched.


Are there clinics that provide Thai Massage?

We are one of the few clinics in the area that provide Thai massage as part of our physical therapy regimen. It takes special certification to be a Thai massage therapist.


What makes Thai Massage special?

Mainly the loving, nurturing feeling you get when you receive it. You just have to try it to know what I mean.

Woman Running

Spring is a great time to start an exercise program. With the arrival of warmer weather, you may be eager to shake off that winter lethargy with some exercise. However, if you've been inactive during the winter, you need to ease into your spring routine. 


Identify your goals (lose weight? run a 10K?) and choose an exercise or activity that you enjoy (walking, tennis, dancing). You'll be more likely to stick with it if you like doing it. Even if you can only squeeze in five or ten minutes of exercise several times a day, you will achieve significant health benefits.


Thank you for your interest in health and wellness. We believe Staying Active is important for WORK.SPORT.LIFE.
