Community FIXX: Nurturing To Remember Event

affirmation circleI am honored to have been able to assist at a third annual “Nurturing to Remember” event, which helps women heal from the grief of losing a baby.

The event was held this past Monday at the Pacific Edge Hotel right on the sand of Laguna Beach. It was hosted by Forever Footprints, a Costa Mesa-based nonprofit that organizes the OC Walk to Remember each year in memory of children who were lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and sudden infant death.

Five of us students from CNI College’s Massage Therapy program offered free massages during the seven-hour event to offer comfort from the stress these women are experiencing. I expected a very somber event, yet was impressed at the strength of the women I met and their ability to move forward past their pain and loss.

Welcome to BodyFIXX

I’ve been a massage therapist for more than fifteen years and have found my clients often ask for guidance with workout routines or advice on the latest diet scams. Realizing my clients need more than just a massage therapist, I have gone back to school to expand my knowledge of human anatomy at CNI College and am also training to be a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine so that I can take my massage business to the next level: BodyFIXX Total Wellness.

The BodyFIXX Mission:

We empower our clients to better themselves through the healing practices of massage therapy, personal training, nutritional guidance and goal-setting in order to help them achieve a state of total wellness.

BodyFIXX Total Wellness will officially open for business on October 1, 2014, yet the massage portion of the business has soft-launched already. This blog is designed as a resource for anyone seeking to improve their state of wellness and will include massage therapy updates, nutritional information, fitness assistance and simple recipes.
