It might only be 2% of your body mass, but the brain is the one that gets tickled when you're on the massage table and experience all those wonderful sensations. Or sensations that will be wonderful as soon as the therapist stops pressing on that *#%@&! painful knot on your rhomboid.
Well, we thought - time to work directly on the brain, stimulating it with some intersting facts and a drop of bubbly.
Welcome to brainmassage, a free event when we share the expertise of our community with you over a glass of wine.
Every now and then we'll rope in someone knowledgeable and get them to spill the beans to you. In most cases we'll talk about the body and the mind, sometimes about nutrition, sometimes about exercise and sometimes about Italian cooking, Tibetan singing bowls or leadership. Or even something else. If you have ideas, skills, thoughts you think you may want to share, please do get in touch. Just remember that our aim is to share ideas and expertise, not to provide a promotional platform ;)
This time we're getting as close to an actual massaging of the brain as we can short of surgery... The subject of our next brainmassage session is Cranio-sacral therapy, and it'll be our own expert to talk about it.
Dorine Siccama has been practicing this up-and-coming therapy for many years now. I (the webmaster in my occasional incarnation as a substitute receptionist) have witnessed several of Dorine's patients leave her room with a look somewhere between superrelaxed, dazed and I-can-walk-on-water - as if they'd travelled a long way which, Dorine tells me, sometime it's what's happened.
Find out whether you can walk on water on Wednesday 13!
