Joy Of The Mountains
February is the month that we are celebrating the people around us by showing them love and appreciation for all that they bring to us. Our family, friends and work colleagues all offer us the chance to explore life to a deep level and it’s great to show them how much we love and appreciate them.
This blog is dedicated to our partners; those who form the foundations on which we stand. Whether it is the coffee they bring us in the mornings, the fact that they help with the washing up and gardening, or the time they spend with us on date night. The little gifts are so precious and it is wonderful to acknowledge them with time and gentle, safe touch through out the year.
Massage is a fantastic way to connect with our partners on a regular basis, as time spent in each other’s company is the thing that we remember the most. We can fall on these memories when we want to enjoy the highlights of happy times together.

Make sure when you are massaging your partner that you are both comfortable, warm and relaxed. There is no point in making your body ache whilst you try to give a massage as you will not enjoy it, your hands will be tense and your partner will be uncomfortable - remember; it’s supposed to be fun!
