Networking and a Massage

I attended the Rochester Referral Network meeting today. This is part of my new marketing plan and it is working better than any other I’ve employed in the past. Face it, Facebook, blogs, LinkedIn, etc., are great services on-line, but the return on investment is just not there. Nothing beats face-to-face contact when it comes to marketing your business.

After that, I had an appointment for a massage. This is my second time seeing this massage therapist. The first time, I felt great for days until I mowed the lawn. While mowing the lawn, I hit a hole and the jolt made all those back muscles tense. This time, she gave me some exercises to do.

I’ll say this, the actual process of a therapeutic massage is not a pleasant one. Or, at least not in my case. Holding a very heavy camera for extended periods of time has resulted in some really tight muscles that pull my scapula forward. As a result, she worked the muscles that were tightening and pulling the shoulder forward. OUCH!

The old saying, “No pain, no gain,” is fully applicable here. Even though it hurt, the movement in my shoulder is greatly improved. It is now up to me to do my part and remember to do my exercises to help prevent future problems.
