Here we are, in the throws of one of Norway's wettest Summers and Falls. What to do? Work calls us to walk and walk and walk, rain or shine. In addition, many elderly do not get enough exercise. For many, our feet ache, and our backs feel challenged just to get through the darkening days. Of course, having a healthy exercise routine is part of the solution, but having an alternative treatment regime is, I suggest, another part of the solution.
I am preparing a presentation and demonstration that I would like to share with clubs and groups in the area. Just call to arrange a time and place!
Back to our ills: Try massage or reflexology, or both, the next time the cold winds blow. You may not be skipping to the office, but you'll be feeling better, overall.
Yet, what if the problem is that your spirits are low. New research suggests that many Norwegians feel that their routines depress them, and that they would benefit from psychological counseling. Unfortunately, here in Norway, it is rather difficult to get a counseling arrangement, due to the lack of psychologists with available time. Combining social activities with physical fitness training, as well as alternative therapies, can help. Even simply being touched by another person can help many people feel more well. This should not be a surprise to us. It is common sense: we are social creatures, and need the biological benefits of social activity, which, in the homo sapien, includes touching.
Self-treatment is also possible with reflexology. I am happy to provide guidance in this area to those who are interested. I cover aspects of this in my new presentation and demonstration. It is also possible to lift up one's level of overall health while sitting at the desk during an office break, using simple techniques.
Contact me if you would like to meet at your company, office, social or senior center. I am happy to visit , showing my Powerpoint presentation about this interesting technique, and taking volunteers for a hands-on demo. I can present in English and can answer inquiries and chat in Norwegian. Velkommen!
