Health Professionals in Alberta
"Take a deep breath and slowly drift away to tranquility. The ancient rituals of massage have lasted through ages. Indulge yourself in the invigorating aromas and soothing sounds. Let total relaxation take over. Massage lets you experience the pleasure of a body that can breathe, stand and move freely. Experiencing massage regularly will improve your general health. As you emerge from the experience you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated."
"Let me ask you, are you ready to finally enjoy food and love yourself, once and for all? Let's face it, most attempts at healthy eating are futile because it's missing the vital ingredient = the MIND! It's time we stopped agonizing over calories and fat grams, obsessing over the "shoulds" and "should-nots" doctrines of eating, and feeling immense and unnecessary guilt over every morsel of food in the name of "healthy" weight loss. It is time that we say YES to living a happier and healthier life today regardless of that number on the scale."
