As Debi's mentor, Camille Gouldberg, reminded her: "Massage is just one leg of the animal called Health." Other healthy life choices might include taking quality vitamin and herb supplements, stretching/rolling, yoga, walking/hiking, retreats, meditation, acupuncture, taking naps, reading a good book, positive thinking, healthy eating habits, getting a good night's sleep and anything else that works for the individual.
