Michigan Massage Therapist Licensing

The Snyder administration has been re-organizing state agencies, resulting in a delay of scheduling of the public comment period for the massage licensing regulations.  At this time, public comment might not happen until spring 2012.  I will keep you posted as I learn more.

You can always check the Michigan Board of Massage Therapy website for more information.

Your Connection to News at Tonic | Fall 2011    

Tonic Moves Back Home

After over three months in temporary quarters, I am very happy to announce that Tonic is now back upstairs! The space has changed a bit and now the entrance to my studio is at the door in the lobby to the left of the Tonic sign. There is a waiting area for you in the lobby, as well as a sign indicating when I next expect to be available (if you should stop by for a gift certificate or some other time when you don't have a session scheduled).

I am looking forward to working with you again in a more accommodating space!


Fit & Healthy Northville
Weight Loss Group

Is it time for you to shed a few pounds (or inches)? Do you have difficulty sticking to a weight loss program? Join Fit & Healthy Northville to get the support and encouragement you need. This free group enables its members to find exercise partners and schedule group workouts, share information about healthy weight loss, discuss challenges and successes, and have a weekly progress check-in (optional).

You can use the weight loss program of your choice. If you're looking for a program, I can give you information about Shaklee's Cinch weight loss program -- the program I am following! Cinch is a comprehensive program that is proven to work, is based on science and incorporates sound nutrition. The key to Cinch is that it is designed so you will lose fat and build muscle, which helps you to burn more calories while you're losing weight and better enables you to maintain your goal weight once you get there.

To join, send me an email and I will invite you to our Google Group. To get more information about Cinch, call (248-425-3675) or email and we can arrange a time to meet. You can also find out more at


Meet My Neighbors:
Northville Physical Rehabilitation

For the three plus months I was away from my suite, I had a temporary home at Northville Physical Rehabilitation, on the first floor of the building. NPR has been around since 1985, so they must be doing something right! Every client receives an individualized treatment plan, based on consultation with their referring physician. NPR treats a broad range of conditions, including orthopedic and neurological disorders, neck and back pain, sports injuries, arthritis, cardiac disability, traumatic brain injury and stroke. When needed, treatment is provided at the client's home, in addition to their Northville facility, and they offer a convenient pick-up service as well.

The staff frequently receives education in the latest techniques and NPR invests in the newest technology. Feedback from both clients and physicians enables NPR to continually monitor and improve its service and outcomes. While I was downstairs, I had the opportunity to observe the staff at NPR and they were all professional and courteous. If you have need for physical or occupational therapy, NPR is here for you.


No Place Like Home

During the past 3+ months, I came to really appreciate my "home" upstairs. Your home is the place you can make your own, the place you can go when you want to be away from the rest of the world, the place you can be yourself. While my studio isn't my actual home, it is the place I created as my own to work with you. My temporary quarters were passable, but they definitely lacked my personal touch and the positive energy I sense when I work upstairs. Being back home upstairs has brought me peace of mind and I hope it will be a more welcoming place for you as well.
