June 5, 2023 — When Dreams Come True

Monday Morning Magic from Inkandescent® PR + Publishing Co. It’s hard for me to believe it was a year ago this week that I graduated from massage school. I chronicled the experience in my book, Massage School Memoire: 10 Months That Changed My Life.  Last fall, I moved from Santa Fe, NM to Rehoboth Beach, DE to continue my journey.

Here, I am a proud employee of the luxurious Bellmore Inn & Spa where each week, from Friday to Sunday, I have the privilege of doing about 20 massages for hotel guests and locals. My dear massage teacher at Bodymechanics, Farice Rezabek, taught us that you didn’t really have any idea what you are doing as a therapist until 500 bodies have been beneath your hands. I am thrilled to report that I worked on my 500th client this weekend. The best is yet to come!

Massage by Hope: I am also excited to report that I began offering massages from my studio here in Rehoboth Beach this summer. So if you are coming for a visit or live here at the beach, I invite you to book an appointment: MassagebyHope.us.

Bennies of massage: According to the Mayo Clinic, massage helps to improve circulation, and flexibility, provide a better quality of sleep, strengthen the immune response, and decrease muscle stiffness and joint inflammation. It also helps with anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, and temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders. Learn more at mayoclinichealthsystem.org

CBD Delight: Although I have never been a fan of THC, when I started doing about 20 massages a weekend as a therapist at the Bellmoor, our thoughtful spa director, Alec, suggested I use a few drops of the CBD oil—crafted by lost range®—on my hands to keep them from hurting. I was amazed at how effective it was! My thumbs were starting to give me trouble and were pain-free after just one day of use. If it worked for me, I figured it would work for the guests, and ever since, I have been recommending CBD massages to any guest struggling with chronic pain. From arthritis to aching backs, necks, and knees, I’ve seen this oil work its magic. Click here to read more: beinkandescent.com/lost-range-a-cbd-story

When dreams come true: I can’t tell you how happy I am to split my time working with our Inkandescent® PR + Publishing clients and doing massage. The combination of using my head, hands, and heart has been my lifelong goal. I am so grateful!

Until next Monday: I send love, thanks, and wishes that your lifelong dreams come true! — Hope Katz Gibbs, founder and president, Inkandescent® Inc. Inkandescent.us
