As autumn starts to strut her stuff here in Colorado, I start changing colors as well. My summer wardrobe’s bright greens yield to comfy grays, cozy browns, and deep oranges.

And my body shifts, too, as I resist the desire to cocoon. As soon as temperatures tumble, the brisk postworkout massages of summer are easy to trade for heated stone massages and toasty foot wraps. 

What about you? Are you making the shift from iced lattes to hot cocoa? Are you interested in having a warm treatment added to your regular massages? Make sure you share your wish list and bodywork needs with your practitioner. You can be sure he or she is keen to move with you from season to season and life change to life change.

In this autumn issue of Body Sense, we enjoy learning about some unexpected benefits of massage. You may have gotten addicted to massage as a special treat, but all too soon you realized just how healing, nurturing, and supportive regular sessions are. In this issue, you’ll learn about a round of plusses you probably never expected from bodywork. It’s like finding those last brilliant flowers under the fallen leaves.
