Case Study – Natural Pain Relief For Bunions

“For the first time in the past eight years I can walk long distances (8-10) miles without nerve pain in my right foot.”

Susan toes May 2013

Do you suffer from bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis or other painful foot ailments? Did you know there are natural, non invasive alternatives to surgery? Check out this success story…

Susan has received monthly massages from me for the past two years. When I first met her she suffered from debilitating foot pain due to bunions. She was not interested in the traditional medical solution which includes surgery and a long recovery period that would require her to be off her feet for weeks. In April of 2012 she purchased Correct Toes from me and started wearing them for a few minutes a day.

In three months she worked her way up to at least a half hour a day, usually wearing them on her daily walks.

Now for the first time in her adult life there is space between her big toe and second toe. She has improved her foot health and decreased her pain to the extent that she was able to hike long distances on her recent trip to Europe.

Here is a more recent photo of her feet in July of 2014. Notice the difference? More space between her big toe and second toe and, especially the foot on the left, her big toe points straight forward instead of to the side. Plus her bunion is much less pronounced.

What can the combination of soft tissue work, strength and flexibility work, and toe separators like Correct Toes do for you? Call Anne to find out (503) 705-4762

Fluid Has A New Address! 1644 S.E. Clatsop Street

Fluid has recently moved to 1644 S.E. Clatsop Street Portland, Oregon 97202.

I must admit initially I thought Clatsop was a strange sounding word (and still am not sure if I am pronouncing it correctly) then I discovered the history. Fort Clatsop is named for a local Indian tribe who were friendly to Lewis and Clark.

If you have not visited the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park I highly recommend it!

The park is just past Astoria. This area is loaded with attractions including the Peter Iredale Shipwreck (see photo below of yours truly striking a pose).

And here are a few more shots from the Astoria area, the south jetties at Ft. Stevens:

January Facebook Contest – New Year’s Resolutions

Last month I challenged you to post your food photos on Fluid’s facebook page. For posting a photo of her yummy homemade cobbler Jane won herself a massage gift certificate. Congratulations Jane!

This month – New Year’s Resolutions!

Post your New Year’s resolutions by January 31st and you could win a thirty minute personal training session with Anne.

What are you letting go of? What new habit have you added? Are you working towards a fitness goal? Maybe you are tweaking your schedule to allow for more fun, relaxation, or time with family? Tell me about it.

Personally I am continuing my pull up challenge. My goal is to be able to do one unassisted pullup (without jumping) by the end of the year. I also tend to be a worrier so when I hear the little monkey in my brain start to go nuts I say “I don’t have to worry about this right now.” I’ll keep you posted on my progress…
