Lifestyle Adjustments News
May 2004

Welcome to
Lifestyle Adjustments from

I hope you will look forward to each month's newsletter as an inspirational reminder of the simple things you can do to get healthy, stay healthy, and help your family and friends on their journey to better health.

It's our goal to provide you with lots of informative, interesting and fun tips on reaching your individual health goals.  I welcome your feedback and suggestions for future issues.


There’s nothing whatever the matter with me.
I’m just as healthy as I can be.
I have arthritis in both my knees
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
My pulse is weak and my blood is thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.
I think my liver is out of whack
And a terrible pain is in my back.   
My hearing is poor,   my sight is dim,
Most everything seems to be out of trim.
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.
I have arch supports for both my feet,
Or I wouldn’t be able to go on the street.
Sleeplessness I have night after night,
And in the morning I’m just a sight.
My memory is failing, my head is in a spin,
I’m peacefully living on aspirin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.

Please Explain...
Why Do My Feet Ache?  

We take our feet for granted.  Usually, they do what we want without any thought on our part.  But, did you know…
    * One quarter of the bones of the entire body are in the feet: 52 of them, firmly but flexibly held together by muscles and ligaments.
    * There are three arches, two lengthwise and one across each foot.  Arches allow us to stand for long periods of time without any other support.  We’re the only creatures on earth which can do this.
    * When we walk, we do it one foot at a time.  A 100 lbs. person walking a mile puts 25 tons of force on each foot.  Running quadruples the force!
    * When feet are out of balance, the rest of the body has to make up for this problem.                

   Many physical conditions such as knee, hip, back, shoulder pain and even headaches can be traced directly to feet which may not even hurt.

   Shoes are made a little differently by each manufacturer.  What may seem to be a minor insignificant variation in fit may be very important to the health of your feet and therefore, the health of your body.

    *  Women’s shoes should have heels no higher than one (1) inch.
    *  When heels wear down on your shoes, have them replaced promptly.  Do not let them wear excessively.
    *  When buying new shoes, bring them in to us before you wear them so we can muscle test the fit and find out if the shoes will help or hurt your feet.

   Another way to insure the best possible foot care is to wear Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers (or Power Soles).  These supports are handcrafted and custom made for your feet.  The supports are placed inside your shoes and should fit snugly against the counter or back of the shoe.  It usually takes about two weeks to adapt to your supports—the foot imbalance you have didn’t happen overnight and, similarly, and correction requires some time, too!

   If you would like more information about Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers and Power Soles, please contact the office.  Remember, your feet are special too!

Just For You 
Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind

   This meditation with tranquilize the mind within 3 minutes.  The hand position is called “the mudra which pleases the mind.”  Buddha gave it to his disciples for control of the mind.  Here’s how to do it:

   Sit on the floor with your legs comfortably crossed or in a chair with both feet balanced on the ground, with a straight spine.  With the elbows bent, bring the hands up and in until they meet in front of the body at the level of the heart.  The elbows should be held up almost to the level of the hands.  Bend the index fingers of each hand in toward the palm.  Join them with each other so they press together along the second joint.  The middle fingers are extended and meet at the fingertips.  The other fingers are curled into the hand.  The thumbs meet at the fingertips.  Hold the mudra about 4 inches from the body with the extended fingers pointing away from the body.

   Focus on the tip of your nose.  Inhale completely and hold the breath while repeating the mantra of your choice (peace, love, Har, etc.) 11-21 times.  Exhale, hold the breath out, and repeat the mantra an equal number of times.  Practice for 3 minutes.

Hot Stones and Reflexology

   We have a new member to the GRD Healing Arts Clinic massage team.  Her name is Maureen LaFrantz, CMT.  She joins us as a graduate of The Atlanta School of Massage from The Wellness Massage & Spa Therapies Program.  Using a wide range of techniques/modalities she enjoys the challenge of creating truly individualized sessions for personalized results.  From gentle rocking techniques, Swedish & Deep Tissue Massage, to Reflexology and beyond! 

   Maureen also brings the addition of Hot Stone Massage to treatments currently offered at GRD Healing Arts Clinic.  The popularity of Hot Stone Massage has grown tremendously and has become one of the most sought after treatments in spas and health centers around the world.

   Hot Stone Massage dates back hundreds of years.  The massage itself is most commonly known for its ability to induce a deep sense of relaxation, reduce stress and rejuvenation.  What is a Hot Stone Massage?...

   Stones from the beaches of Central America are heated in water and placed on larger areas of the body such as the back and torso.  The stone’s warmth penetrates the tissues allowing for increased blood circulation.  The legs, arms, and neck are massaged with hot stones using long flowing strokes creating an analgesic effect for both superficial and deep muscles of the body.  The heat and massage from the stones help tight muscles loosen and relax.  AAaaahhh!!!  

   Call to schedule your first Hot Stone Massage with Maureen TODAY!  770-551-0155.
