Every Body Deserves a Massage


I've been meaning to do this for the last few years, and Yay! This year, I'm finally getting to it!

ABMP (Associated Bodyworker and Massage Professionals).. the association I belong to, is sponsoring their 10th annual "EveryBody Deserves a Massage Week"; this year, from July 19th to the 25th.

This is a week where all ABMP members are encouraged to get out there, raise awareness for their work and give back to the community.

So, I'm teaming up with my friends and office neighbors at the Lionville Holistic Center: Bill Bryan, Hilary Sohn (both massage therapists) and Cindy Ayton (reflexologist) to do just that.

If you're in the Chester County, PA area, we'd love for you to come by.

Here are the details:

Where: Lionville Holistic Health Center, 311 & 312 Gordon Drive, Exton, PA 19341

When: Saturday, July 25th, 9am-3pm (with a lower key version between 11 and 3 on Tuesday, July 21st, just at #312)

What: 15-minute chair massage for you in exchange for a canned good or two (to benefit the Lord's Pantry in Downingtown), with either Bill Bryan, Hilary Sohn, or me (Gina Marks) (or Cindy Ayton, and me, if you come on Tuesday); a chance to win a full session with the therapist of your choice; free healthy snacks; balloons!!! (I know, right? how exciting!); an opportunity to meet your friendly neighborhood bodyworkers!

(And quite possibly, a few minutes of fame.. I'm working on getting the Daily Local to come.. whee!)

Why: Why not? Sounds like fun, right? And it just might be one of four days this summer that it doesn't rain! (Hey, we can always hope...)

Bring a friend.. bring all your friends... just come! And don't forget your canned goods!
