Get stress-relief before and/or after our event on 3/25/11!

Just in! 
Claudia Licht, Certified Massage Therapist, will be providing Chair Massage on a donation basis before and after the Beyond Baroque event on Friday, March 25, 2011. All proceeds will go for the benefit of Beyond Baroque and its mission of being a community center for the literary arts.

Claudia is certified by the statewide California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC) and is an active professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). She has been providing massage therapy since 1998 after taking the national licensing exam as presented by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) and specializes in providing pain relief utilizing the John F. Barnes Approach to Myofascial Release.

The chair massage will be given in increments of 5 to 10 minutes with a suggested donation of $10 - $20. Clients are fully dressed and will sit in a specially designed chair with no oils or creams being used. The massage chair gives the massage therapist easy access to your neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands and head.

We are looking forward to having you, so mark your calendars and reserve your 'chair'!

Your Beyond Baroque Team

  1. The word “Stress” actually relates to wear and tear as when the rubber meets the road on a tire or the brake pads pressing up against the rotor in the wheel. The term as it applies to living organisms was first introduced by Hans Seyle in the 1930’s who defined it as the consequence of the failure of an organism (human or animal) to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats, whether actual or imagined. Thus stress symptoms are the manifestation of a chronic state of responses to stress triggers that are actually benign. Even a thought can set off the same response mechanism that would be in play while standing in front of a hungry lion. Hence, Seyle’s definition still reaches to the heart of stress management; the idea of the response being inappropriate and engaging in a process of altering ones misperception of pending disaster or imminent danger.
