Massage treatments can help you sleep better!

Massages are known as far more than a luxury treatment nowadays. People go for them all the time. It instantly brings the body into a less stressful state and tends to ease stress from the muscles, tendons, joints, and other areas of the body. It is a fine-tuned treatment that can lead to profound health changes.

Improved quality of sleep is among them.

Sleep deprivation costs the U.S. economy nearly $150 billion per year, according to the CDC. Recent studies suggest that stress-related exhaustion is one of the leading causes of sleep loss. A luxurious massage can help you achieve true physical and mental relaxation, which is the gateway to better sleep. Treating yourself to regular massage therapy will leave your mind and body so relaxed, you’ll sleep like a baby.

As we age, our sleep cycle changes. This can result in a decrease in sleep efficiency at night and make it more difficult for us to sleep when we should and wake up when it’s time to. That’s where massage therapy comes in. Making massage part of your regular health and wellness machine can help your body learn to relax and unwind, both of which are needed for healthy and sustained sleep.

The relationship between stress and sleep is complex, yet well-documented. Stress can keep you awake at night, making it hard for you to get the rest you need. If you have stress-related insomnia, you may feel tired throughout the day and be short on patience. With millions of people suffering from stress-related insomnia and nearly 30% of Americans experiencing stress-related insomnia at least once a week, there has never been a better time to find relief.

Getting a massage each week can help with sleeping and overall health. It can reduce stress levels, and help you fall asleep at night. A massage provides beauty to our lives, as well as relaxation. Sleeping better is as simple as giving yourself a treat. Massage therapy can help stress and relieve chronic pain with relaxation and other therapeutic benefits.

Organization Tips for Your Home

1) Keep your keys in the same place

3) Kick out the Junk

Really, we mean it. Why not squash all those creepy crawlies in the basement and turn it into an amazing hang out space? Also, you could actualy display all your books in the office with some shelves from IKEA.

Backsplash Fun Stuff

So, it's time to update your kitchen in your home. Perhaps to add value and perhaps because you are tired of it. Either way, choosing your backsplash tile is a big part of keeping to a color scheme. There are also different types of tiles like ceramic and glass tile. Subway tiles, hex tiles, and a mix of styles are all on the trending currently.

Some backsplash options, however, don't even use tiles at all. While not particularly recommend, some do use linoleum. It is still a dated look for the time being.

But, if you are looking for help to do your tiling, take a look at our webpage.

Older homes can be a treasure, but...

Living in a historic older home can be a wonderful adventure. Older homes often have a certain character and charm that just isn’t found in more modern homes. Their architectural windows, solid plaster walls, and old brick fixtures and work are an art form that things that can’t be duplicated in our current society.

They can also be a nightmare when it comes to upkeep and renovation. It’s very important that homeowners know what they are getting into, especially before they start a project. Once certain issues are exposed, they MUST be fixed before the project can be completed and the space is cleared for occupancy.

Outdated plumbing
:  Most older homes were built with galvanized metal pipes. They may have been all the rage at the time, but they clog easily, are often smaller in diameter than current building codes require, and can be damaged over time by rust, tree roots, and corrosion.

Old Electrical Systems:
Older homes were not built with progress in mind. Most are not set up to handle the electrical load that comes from all our modern appliances and gadgets. Not only is it inconvenient when breakers are tripped and you lose power if you happen to run a hairdryer and coffee maker at the same time, but it can be a fire hazard as well.  Many older outlets are also ungrounded two-prong outlets that are spaced very far apart rather than the required three-prong outlets that are spaced every 6 feet. Correcting those problems usually requires rewiring the entire house, which can cost several thousand dollars.

Unsafe Building Materials:  Lead based paint and asbestos were popular building materials in their time. We know now these things can cause cancer and other major health problems. If they’re left alone, they generally don’t cause problems. However, if paint needs to be scraped or you want to remove that old outdated popcorn ceiling, you’ll need to do some testing and probably hire an abatement company to safely remove these items before construction can proceed.

Tiny Rooms: People and families lived much differently when those older homes were built than we do now. Older floor plans are often choppy and were build to accommodate separate rooms for every purpose rather than the open concept most people prefer today. Attempting to incorporate these more modern layouts into an older space can often reveal structural problems and poorly done previous renovations that need to be corrected and may require the help of a structural engineer and/or architect.

However, a well-maintained older home can be a real treasure that is worth preserving. It’s best to hire a remodeling pro to help you get the job done!
