Vacation in Southeastern Michigan

School days are drawing to a close, graduation invitations are in the mail, and many are planning vacations. Have you thought about a road trip that would include Southeast Michigan? I encourage you to include Lenawee County and Adrian, MI as you and your family visit the many attractions.

Is history an interest to your family? We have a wonderful Lenawee County Historical Museum, where you can learn about the Underground Railroad and Aunt Laura Haviland.

Attend a performance at the historic Croswell Opera House, or an evening of quality music by the Adrian Symphony Orchestra! Enjoy various forms of art by many local artists, tour college campuses and reserve seats on the Blissfield Murder Mystery train.

Visiting our family-friendly parks and Hidden Lake Gardens on a warm sunny day is just what the “Dr. ordered.”

For those looking for antiques, Blissfield and Tecumseh can provide the places to find the “just right” piece. Several wineries will allow you to taste the flavors of Michigan and our many restaurants offer American, Mexican, and Italian meals. Governor Croswell’s Tea Room & Restaurant allows on to feel special in the wonderful, fully restored 100-year-old Hofler Building in downtown Adrian. Gather your girlfriends, don your hat, and savor the flavor of your favorite tea, or better yet, try one new to you!

For the car buffs and the antique tractor collectors, revisit Michigan’s Pioneer Days by spending time at Walker Tavern at Cambridge Junction.

If water and the sports are what attract you, let me remind you that we have many lakes for boating, fishing, skiing, and swimming. Oh, yes! Bring your golf clubs and comfy walking shoes! Want to try skydiving while in Tecumseh?

Now that you have an idea of how you could spend time in our area, let’s give a thought to lodging. We at Heart Wood Place Bed and Breakfast would love to have you as our guests! Enjoy the peace and beauty of our woods, reflect by the pond, bird watch from the deck and pet our horses. Be awakened by the aroma of a home-cooked full breakfast and fresh coffee. Sit at our dining table and quickly feel special with care being given to your needs.

Massage Therapy Wellness Program

Massage therapy as a part of your wellness and health program – Does that sound familiar to you? More and more Americans are using massage therapy as a part of their wellness program and find ways to work it into their budget.

It truly is beneficial to all ages. Think about pregnancy and having pre and postnatal massage. Don’t forget baby! Infants respond beautifully to touch and gentle massage. As our young folks grow and become involved in sports, massage therapy aids in pain relief for sore muscles.

Our aging population should not be overlooked. Range of motion for joints is critical to all, and allows many to continue activities of daily living as well as driving and living an active life socially. In today’s society, many people are working much longer out of economic need.

The 115th annual consumer survey done by the American Massage Therapy Association found that more Americans are using massage therapy not only for pain relief, but other health issues as well.

Clients find that their massage sessions can be effective in reducing symptoms of depression, tension, and headaches. Massage therapy also aids in the ease of participating in exercise programs.

The survey indicates that 72% of massage therapist’s clients are repeat clients. Consider booking your appointment and enjoy numerous benefits.

After those sessions, ask yourself if your massage met your expectations.

  • Did the therapist understand your needs?
  • Were your areas of concern addressed?
  • Did you explain in detail to the therapist your concerns, areas of discomfort, health history as well as your expectations from the session?

People have had bad haircuts before, but that didn’t stop them from getting another haircut. They learned to communicate better or choose a different hair stylist.

Massage therapists have their own style and personality, so find the therapist that fits your needs and communicates well with you. You will definitely enjoy the health benefits of regular massage therapy, so call us today to get started!
