The first time I sat on one of Geoffrey Warner’s creations, I knew I wanted to replace all the chairs in my life with Owl Stools. As a massage therapist I talk to people all day long about posture and body mechanics and a lot of the problems I treat come from people sitting in poorly designed chairs. Clients present with upper and lower back pain, neck pain, hip pain and wrist pain. They sit for hours and hours on chairs that are uncomfortable at desks that don’t support their body’s needs.
Geoffrey’s furniture is different. First of all, each piece is a work of art, hand crafted to perfection from sustainably harvested American hardwoods. Secondly, and probably more importantly, the stools support us, they don’t work against us. The postural support holes in the stools provide space for our sit bones and encourage us to sit in a neutral position that corrects our spinal alignment and strengthens our core.
I have been sitting on Owl Stools for years now, both at home and in my office and the only problem I’ve encountered is that I don’t have enough of them to go around. Everyone who tries them wants to sit on them! I haven’t yet replaced all of my chairs with Owl Stools, but I’m working on it. I urge you to take a look at Geoff’s website (www.owlfurniture.com). All of his furniture is a work of art and his owl stools are no exception. If you decide to make a purchase, please let them know that Jess from Namaste Massage sent you.
Healthy Wave™ Mats are a complete 5 therapy wellness solution. They harness key therapies including far-infrared heat, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF Therapy), photon light rejuvenation, negative ions and natural crystals. These therapies work synergistically together to provide a relaxing and therapeutic experience.
As a massage therapist, I have encountered many people with chronic pain, inflammation and stress and the desire to treat themselves in between sessions. The Healthy Wave mat is the perfect solution.
The benefits of Far Infrared heat are well documented. It provides temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness; the temporary relief of joint pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor strains and sprains; muscular relaxation; and the temporary increase of local circulation where applied. There is extensive clinical research showing these benefits and more.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field devices (PEMF) emit electromagnetic waves at different frequencies in order to stimulate and encourage your body’s natural recovery process. The waves created by PEMF devices occur in brief bursts and are very low-frequency, like the electromagnetic waves found in nature. In fact, most waves involved in PEMF treatments have a lower frequency than you would be exposed to during a thunderstorm.
PEMF devices have been proven to increase flexibility and range of motion, bone density, circulation, energy to cells, lean muscle mass and cell hydration. They likewise have been proven to decrease pain and stiffness, edema, inflammation, muscle spasms and stress. For more information about the benefits of PEMF there are over 450 studies on pubmed at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed.
Healthy Wave mats come in many sizes and therapy combinations. To learn more and/or place your order, visit Healthy Wave Mats.
