Is it possible to get too much massage?

This was the question put to me after a massage session two weeks ago. The questioner is a woman who has been enjoying treatment at the Art of Massage at least once a month for years. "Far as I know," I told her, "no one has ever overdosed."

So here's what she decided to do. She has one week of vacation left, so starting on the day after Labor Day, she is coming to the Spa four days in a row. "Yoga in the morning, followed by a bike ride, then a massage before dinner." What a great vacation idea!

We hope you've been taking good care of yourself this summer. We predict it's going to stay warm and summer-like for a good long time.
