Honoring the Victims of the Newtown Tragedy

What can I do?

I've stayed away from the news when this story broke, and for the weeks that followed.  I'm probably one of only a few people that doesn't know a thing about the shooter, and I refuse to learn even his name.  As a mother of two young children, I couldn't bear to hear about what happened in Newtown.  I wasn't going to write a post about this story, but there is a movement that has come about as a result that I would like to shed some light upon.

#26acts or #26actsofkindness

The idea is to challenge people to bring some positivity into this world by asking them to do 26 acts of kindness - one for each person who passed as a result of this tragedy.

Here is my challenge for you.

Don't stop at 26 good deeds. Continue doing them throughout 2013 and beyond.  Make doing nice things for others on a daily basis your way of life.

Need some ideas on what you can do?

  • Leave a larger tip than you normally would for your server
  • Pay for the toll of the vehicle behind you
  • Offer to purchase a coffee for the next customer in line
  • Smile at the next person you see
  • Volunteer your time at a charity that speaks to you
  • Help out your neighbor by shoveling their sidewalk when it snows, helping them bring their groceries in...
I hope you take on this challenge and together we can all make 2013 a positive year full of kindness.  If you want to, you can let us know what you are doing by commenting here, or commenting on our facebook page.

Keeping you warm in the winter months

We have a few things around the massage room that will help to keep you warm during these cold winter months that we have ahead of us.

fleece table warmer:  How nice is it when you get on the table, and it is warm?  Just inviting you to relax and enjoy your massage.

blanket:  We can always add on another if you like.  Remember, it is your time, it is your massage, if you are too cold, or too hot, just let your therapist know and we can add on another blanket or take one away.

heated oil:  This is a new addition to Melrose Muscle Therapy.  We now heat the oil that we use for massage.  Makes things just that much more cozier.  =)

hot bamboo massage:  You can always upgrade your massage to a hot bamboo massage.  Feel the warmth of the smooth rattan against your skin and you will feel as if you are melting into the table.  Very relaxing!

Coming soon: Paraffin hand dips....
We will add this service come January 2013.  Join our email list, and become a fan of our facebook page to be the first to know when we add new services to our menu.
