Snow and Polarity Therapy

"Snow" was my first word today. I looked out an upstairs window and could see snow on my neighbor's roof. Considering there was no snow in the forecast I was surprised to see white everywhere.

After lunch at Roy's I scouted around for a photo to share with you. Over on Sherman I found these houses where you could still see the snow on the roofs. Greg said this white stuff was really little ice pellets, but I'm going with snow. It sounds so much more pleasant.

Late this afternoon I went to see Bill for a treatment. I've been a couple of times for an aqua-chi foot bath, but it has been awhile. The other night when Sharon and Jocelyn came over and gave me Reiki they suggested I go for a foot bath and also have Bill do a polarity treatment on me too.

This polarity treatment... wow... this is something. He pressed with is fingertips on various places on my back and neck, asking me to hold my breath when he did. The idea is that when you hold your breath the brain "resets" your muscles and the energy can flow freely.

I'm no expert, and I can't begin to explain it, but I can tell you my back and neck feel better tonight than I think they probably have in my adult life. Everything is relaxed, nothing is strained. It feels like someone has massaged my neck and back for about five hours nonstop. It's amazing. I will definitely be doing that again.

I know some think all this sort of thing is just foolishness. But, I've had amazing effects from Reiki and this polarity therapy is right up there. Who knows what else is available that I don't even know about?
