We’re so excited about this year of wellness, massage, and bodywork because Body Sense is now quarterly.

Through Body Sense, you can learn more about the benefits of massage and a holistic lifestyle. In this issue, Contributing Editor Karrie Osborn talks about the value of downtime and how massage can help you find space for yourself, page 10. Learn what fascia is and how it helps your body flow, from Washington State practitioner Anita Boser, page 4. And, of course, you can shop for beautiful products that bring wellness into your home, page 8. Reading Body Sense is like visiting with your massage therapist. So enjoy every page, then pick up the telephone and schedule your next massage, knowing that your massage therapist has your best interests in mind. —Leslie A.
