a message from Chai

Dear ArCTIC patients and clients,

Hello!  I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.  My name is Chai (short for Chaitanya), pronounced ‘Chay’.  It is with great pleasure that I join the staff at ArCTIC this month as a new massage therapist.  If you’ve already started investing in your health by seeing Amanda Long for massages, then hats off to you for making that consistent addition to your overall healthcare and wellness plan.

As a former family doctor and now a massage therapist, I know how traditional medicine and massage therapy can be used together and have seen it first-hand.  Perhaps you’re getting over a cold, sinus infection, or cough (winter is here, after all!) but you just can’t shake some of that “stuff” that sits inside your chest.  Have you ever felt like you just can’t take a deep breath because of it?  Some gentle manual movement of that fluid out of the airways and nasal passages can help relieve that pressure or congestion.  Or targeted massage of your thorax can provide more movement to a restricted rib cage.  These are just a couple of examples from my medical experience that I bring to massage now and hopefully can bring to you.

Take care in 2019 and hope to see you at ArCTIC.
