i’ve heard many body workers say that their practices are slower in the summer months, and i can say the same is true for mine. though there are still plenty of people in need of treatments, the summer lightens my patient load just a bit. it seems like people just feel better during the warmer months. (though summer does not always mean warmer in san francisco.) people have fewer digestive issues because they’re usually eating healthier foods–fewer holiday parties and heavy seasonal feasts in the summer. people also tend to spend more time outside, and often get more exercise, which makes us all feel better. it seems people also feel better emotionally, whether it’s due to more sunlight or stress-filled holidays, i’m not sure. also, peoples’ aches and pains are generally less intense when the weather is warm. hooray for summer! these days i’m mostly treating people for fertility issues and general health maintenance.
