Mother’s Day Tribute

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. As everyone gets ready for it, buying their gift cards, presents, and cards, I’m reminded just how important this day is for some of us.

It has been 3 years since I said goodbye to the most Amazing person I had ever known. Mother’s Day, up until she died, was not a day on my radar. I would buy the cards for my Mom and my wife and give a gift here and there in appreciation but the significance was lost on me. Don’t get me wrong, I did appreciate all the tireless and thankless things they do but it didn’t sink in until my mother was gone. I had lost a security blanket that I didn’t even know I had.

 My mother and I spoke every day. She was my cheerleader. The rock of my emotions. The one person I knew would always be there for me. No one in my life had more barring on how I felt about myself then she did. She lifted me to heights, I didn’t think I could reach. She would have you believe that you could do anything you want, if you put you mind to it. She had this quiet dignity and strength that still inspires me today. She sacrificed everything for her children and taught us how to love unconditionally and give everything you have to everyone else. This little blurb does not do my mother the proper justice that she deserves for the impact she had on me and everyone else around her.

 I realize that not everyone is fortunate enough to have had a Mother like mine, but regardless. Mother’s Day is day to give your Mother all your gratitude for the things they do for you. Even the things you’re not aware of yet! I hope this is a reminder for you that your Mother will not always be here and that you hold them tight and give love and thanks for everything they do. Happy Mother’s Day!

Crick in the Neck!

We get this one quite a bit (Stiff neck). Whether you sleep in the wrong position or physical activity moves something out of place. This is a pretty common issue. The simple solution is loosen up your scalenes that attach to your first and second rib. Usually, after about 10 minutes of Neuromuscular massage and some Range of Motion, everything slips back into place. There are other reason’s for this but today this is the one we are addressing. to find out more, come on it. We will fix it pain free. Get on the Schedule!


Question of the Day: What is Bodywork?

Someone, that I do not know on Facebook, asked the question: what is bodywork? Hmm.. I have the general assumption that everyone I work with knows everything in my head. I guess I never thought to explain, “What is Bodywork?”

Many of my client’s have different names for what I do for them. Some are just flat out funny, “The Body Whisperer.” You know who you are. It is, at it’s core, Massage and Bodywork as specified through The National Board for Therapeutic Massage and BODYWORK is (see below).

Bodywork: Any of a number of therapeutic or simply relaxing practices that involve the manipulation, massage, or regimented movement of body parts. Examples include massage, craniosacral therapy, and Pilates. Bodywork may be used as an adjunct to medical treatment, or it may be prescribed as a form of physical therapy for certain conditions.

Basically, It’s massage + other stuff!

The Fundamental difference between a Massage Envy and or Spa Therapist and someone who does bodywork is that a Bodywork Professional has both a long term and short term objective for your body’s overall health.

You may come to us with an injury or headache or nagging back pain. We will assess you and in the short term try to make the initial problem better. You may need a few sessions for this or you may only need one. From there, we try to look deeper at other potential causes of your minor issues and correct those. Then, we try to get you on a maintenance program of stretching, exercise, and periodic massages to help identify potentially new problems that may arise. This type of massage is much more then the occasional, “I need a massage today.”

Hope this answers your question, if you had this question! If not, thank you for taking the time to read my little rant. See you soon!

Getting a massage during Covid-19

We all have had to adjust to a new way of life since March. Oddly enough, our industry didn’t have to adjust that much. The only added procedures is cleaning bathrooms, door knobs, chairs and wearing masks. We as an industry have an obligation to keep our environment clean and sanitized. It is a part of our laws. We do it on a regular basis anyway. 

How safe are you getting a massage? 
By the time you show up for your appointment, there is not a surface that has not been saturated with a high powered disinfectant and wiped clean. We stagger the appointments so the only person you see is your therapist. The likelihood of spread is very low. Your therapist is required to wear a mask the whole time and everyone entering including staff, must pass covid questioning and temp check.

Why is getting a massage important during this time?
Stress! We are all stressed. Our posture is getting worse by the day because of the amount of time we are on Zoom meetings or just flat out sitting. We have become less active which means we are not getting blood flowing and stretching those muscles. We need physical stimulation on a daily basis to keep the body healthy.

It is like covid has caused many to decide to stop working on staying healthy in the fear that you may get sick. I get it. I was on the same path. I had my mid-afternoon margarita everyday and I watched my waistline grow. Finally I had enough and started running and stretching and having coffee instead. The benefit that I have, is the knowledge to get fit and stay relaxed. I know how to do that for myself but you may not know how or what to do. That is why we are here to help even during a pandemic. We don’t want Covid as much as you don’t want Covid, however we still want to help people during this trying time.

Covid Posture exercises

Covid has taken a toll on all of us. Whether you have been exposed to it or not, it has changed most of our lives. It has made many of us sit for longer periods of time starring at a computer screen. The image above is the proper form for doing that.

Do you look like this during your zoom meetings?

I didn’t think so. Most of us find the most comfortable position which over time can cause major issues in your neck, lower back and shoulders and hands.

Our spines are not designed to stay in these postitions for very long. In the picture above you can see that her right side of her lower back is stretching while the left shortens creating tesions that will find its way up to the neck.

Since we are being forced to sit for long periods, here are a few daily exercises to train your body to sit better.

1. Superman Exercise

This an easy one you can do anywhere. Simply raise you legs and upper body off the ground and hold for 45 seconds. Rest for 1 minute and repeat 2 more times. This will help those back muscles support you while you sit.

2. Basic Bridge Ups

Dig those heals in and lift your pelvis. You can go up and for 30 reps or simply hold the postition for 45 seconds. Again rest for 1 minute and repeat 2 more times.

3. Alternating Supermans

This is my favorite one. Raise you left arm and right leg at the same time and hold for a 2 count, then switch to the right arm and left leg. Go back and forth 20 times. Rest for 1 minute and repeat 2 more times.

If you just choose to do one of these daily, your body will thank you!

If you have pain you can’t work out, schedule an appointment. 30 minutes with us can change your life. Schedule online or call 628-200-9817.

Headaches and sinus releif

I would have to say the number one reason people come in is because of chronic headaches. There are many different reasons that we get headaches. I would say the most common reason we get them here in North Texas is sinus issues.

I could go into the neurological problems, clenching problems, poor posture, etc… but no, the most common is sinus pressure.

You may not be familiar with lymphatic drainage but if you are a sinus sufferer, this will change your life.

Our brand of massage incorporates Manual Lymphic Drainage which will drain your sinus pressure almost immediately. It is one of the few treatments that you will notice the difference the moment we finish.

Come test it out today and stop suffering. Schedule at www.hadlcenter.com


Welcome to Hadl Clinical Bodywork

If you have been in recently, you have undoubtedly been welcomed by this little girl. I am amazed at the professionalism of an 8 year old. Her catch phrase ” Welcome to Hadl Clinical Bodywork, Mr. Nick will be Helping you,” is making everyone smile. She insists on welcoming everyone that comes in the door in between her Fort Worth ISD virtual classes. Such a trouper!
