Health Matters

Since the holiday season comes but once a year, while good cheer and celebration is the focus, these celebrations cause trash bins to fill up with extra waste. This year, don’t be so quick to toss everything in the trash, because a lot of items can be recycled, and remember, Santa is watching. Don’t end up on the naughty recycling list.  

If you haven’t been outside to play, explore, or just be, for a long time it can seem a little daunting. Where do I go? What do I need to take? What will I do? These are all very legitimate questions. 

The most common reason individuals seek to receive a massage is they desire relaxation. Whether they are experiencing mental, emotional or physical stress, massage therapy is a great way to initiate or aid in the healing process. 

A key reason why massage can alleviate these symptoms is it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system. This allows the heart rate to slow down and regulate itself. This is why the massage recipient often times experiences a sedating or relaxing effect when matched with a great massage therapist. 

Part B is medical insurance. It covers professional fees for doctors and other health-care providers, outpatient treatment, durable medical equipment, home health services, and preventive care like flu shots and screenings for cancer and heart disease.

Part B requires a monthly premium, which is $121.80 for most Americans in 2016. You’re not required to pay the premium if you don’t want Part B coverage. But is it to your advantage to pay?

The answer depends on your current and future health insurance coverage and needs.
