Relay for Life a Success!

First of all, let me take a moment to thank all of you who have donated to support me in the Relay for Life benefiting the American Cancer Society. I had no idea how much I'd be able to raise and have been amazed at the generosity of friends, family members, and clients who have stepped up to the plate. I have exceeded expectations and reached several goals only to aim higher. It seems so many of us have been affected by this disease and so it really hits close to home.

For those of you who have yet to donate, you'll be happy to know that I can still accept donations through Monday August 31st, even thought the Relay is over. Please go to my personal page and donate whatever amount you are comfortable with.

The Relay itself was a great experience! I recommend getting involved next year if you haven't done so. The event itself is a lot of fun. As a team you can choose to walk, run, or ride in the Relay. It's not a race, just take turns going out on the courses and enjoy the day. As Team Sugar, we chose to ride our mountain bikes on the course laid out for us in Round Valley near the Quinn's Junction recreational complex. The course wasn't too difficult, but we all got a good workout and had a lot of fun riding it. We each did about 2 or 3 laps of the course.

When we weren't out on the course, we enjoyed the live music, great food, and the events inside on the ice rink. We could mingle with other teams as well as each other and just enjoy being outside working together for a good cause. I set up my massage chair and did some 10 minute massages to benefit the American Cancer Society as well. After sunset, there was the Ceremony of Hope and the lighting of the luminaria which were all decorated by individuals who wished to honor the memory of someone who had succumbed to cancer or to celebrate those who have survived as well as support those still battling the disease. It was very moving to see the lighted bags along the walkway for us to wander past and acknowledge.

I am so happy to have been a part of this experience. I hope that my efforts will help in some small way all of those who have been diagnosed with cancer or will in the future. May our struggles honor those we've lost and give hope to those still here on the battle field.

Relay for Life Benefiting the American Cancer Society

I'm really excited to be joining Team Sugar August 29th in the Relay for Life in Park City to benefit the American Cancer Society. Cancer is a disease that has affected all of us in some way, including me so I encourage anyone who can to support Relay for Life.

There are several ways to get involved. The simplest way is to donate. Even $5 will help, so go to my personal Relay for Life web page and click "donate" to give an online donation. My Personal Page. If you'd prefer not to donate online, there is an "offline donation" form you can print out located at the bottom of my page which will allow you to mail a check. If you're feeling frisky, join our Team and run, walk, or ride the course with us on August 29th.

If you have a loved one you'd like to honor, the luminaria may be a good option for you. There will be a Luminaria Ceremony of Hope at sunset where illuminated bags will honor those who have either fallen to or survived cancer. For $10 you can dedicate on of these luminarias which include a personalized message for the person you want to honor.

If nothing else, join us at the Quinn's Junction Recreation Complex in Park City for a day of fun. The day's events begin at noon and go until midnight and include figure skating performances, a public open skate, hockey games, and Skating with the Stars featuring legendary 5-time Olympic speed skating gold medalist and professional cyclist Dr. Eric Heiden, plus USA Hockey Level 4 coach and Brown University Captain/All Ivy Team superstar Bob Devaney.

I would like to dedicate my efforts to long time client Nancy Roush who passed away recently after battling cancer for 10 long years. She will be remembered and missed.

Double the Therapy, Twice the Relaxation!

It's August and time for a brand new special! This month we're lowering the price on our "Pure Luxury Four Hands" massage. This is one of our most decadent treatments and for this month will only run you $80/hr (reg $100/hr). Your session can be as long as 90 minutes which would be the equivalent of receiving 3 hours of bodywork in half the time.

The "4-Hands" massage has long been a favorite among our clients who love to find better ways to relax and is a must try for every fan of massage. It features both members of our Team working in unison on the body to create a massage experience that will blow you away! We combine both targeted and focused work with soothing tandem strokes that send you into another world. You'll have your scalp and feet massaged simulaniously along with elements of Aromatherapy, Reflexology, steamed towels, and a taste of Hot Stone massage which are all a part of making this experience sublime. We invite you to put yourself in our hands and let us lull you into a state of bliss with a symphony of bodywork.

Call either Team member to schedule your appointment...
