As many of you may have already noticed, the January class schedule has some exciting new classes.

We are not only offering new class times (Friday 8am Spin with Skye!) and two new classes on Friday evenings, but the additions also include new class formats. Come check out Bollywood Luna, or Nia if you haven't yet had a chance, and take a look at all the new classes to find a new favorite.

A Trigger Point is a that knot you feel in a muscle that just won't go away, and sometimes refers pain sensation to another area of the body. For example, a Trigger Point in the upper back can be felt into the fingertips. This knot in the muscle has stretched fibers on either side of it that restrict the flow of blood and lymph (vital nutrients) to that area. This can impede function of the affected muscle. There are 600 Trigger Points in the body, and as we age, they become more prominent.
According to some people's interpretation of the Mayan calendar, the world as we know it could end next weekend. We are thinking those people are probably wrong, but are willing to celebrate just in case.
Friday December 21st thru Monday December 24th, Luna Fitness will be offering multiple special classes and unbelievable one-time deals.
For those of you ladies who consistently use the Body Wrap, receiving consistent massage should be an integral part of your fitness program. As you know, one of the benefits of the InfaRed Body Wrap is that it releases toxins and metabolic waste from your muscles. Where does it go, you may ask? It goes into the bloodstream to be metabolized and released from the body. Massage improves blood circulation, which increases the removal of these waste products.
You may be wondering, what exactly are the benefits of receiving massage? Receiving massage can do you a world of good. And getting massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you will be and how youthful you will remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember, just because massage feels like a pampering treat, doesn't mean it isn't extremely therapeutic.
So, we've discussed some of the reasons why you would want to receive massage, from the obvious - relaxation, to the work you may need on specific issues in specific body parts. The next question, you may ask is, why should I receive my massage at Luna with you, Jodi? Quite simply, you will leave feeling that you have received one of the best if not THE BEST massage you will receive in your life. I am passionate about what I do, and the experience is all about you!
