Taking Care Of You

Because they are known to lose track of time doing what they love to do, quilters often keep on quilting until they hurt. Common injuries include neck and back pain from leaning over sewing machines or tight wrists and hands from hand stitching.machines

And when quilters come to Road, often their feet and legs hurt from walking around the vendor floor or sitting in classes all day.vendor floor 2

To help relieve these stresses and strains, Road invites Joyful Healing Massage Therapy to offer therapeutic massage during the show. Two therapists are always available to offer 13 hours of massage time, either on a table or in a chair. Clients sign up on site and pay $1.00 a minute to receive this relaxing and healing treatment.massage__i4c5887

Dawn of Joyful Massage enjoys working at Road. “There is so much positive energy at Road. The therapists are always uplifted at the end of the day because of the quilters’ energy.”

Which day is the busiest for the therapists? Friday. At Road 2014, Joyful Healing provided 800 minutes of massage services.massage__i4c5903

And the most popular massage at Road to California? Foot Massage, of course. Clients relax in chairs while their feet are gently worked on.

Joyful Healing also offers their services for quilt retreats year round. A great reminder for all quilters to seek a way to relieve nagging aches and pains so they can keep on quilting,
