Soothing massage, the release of an adjustment, newly flowing energy from an acupuncture session, relaxing therapy, or an invigorating yoga class. Mention any of these words to a friend and it will make them melt. With the high stress of the holidays, shoulders start to tense, eyelids twitch and the mind runs a mile a minute. Alternative health therapies encourage us to relax, breathe deeply and shake off that unwanted holiday stress. After all, it’s the time to enjoy family, friends and great food.
