3/19: Therapeutic Massage for Overall Health & Well-Being

 

Join us Monday, March 19 from 3:00 to 4:00pm to hear Patti Corscaden, Licensed Massage Therapist, discuss the many benefits of therapeutic massage as we age. Patti will demonstate how massage can play a supportive and nurturing role in overall health and well-being. Multiple studies indicate that just 10-15 minutes of therapeutic massage may provide many health benefits when received on a regular basis. 
 
As we get older, our bodies benefit from many aspects of care and attention that help us live more fully. Massage therapy is an evidence-based approach that is safe and effective. Some of the benefits one can experience from receiving therapeutic massage are a reduction in most sources of pain, reduction of depression and anxiety, diminished nausea, better sleep and enhanced relaxation.
 
Reducing stress is another benefit of receiving massage. The stress hormone, cortisol, is reduced during times of relaxation while the feel good hormones and neurotransmitters like oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine are increased when the body and mind are in a more relaxed state. Massage therapy is a gentle hands on approach to support and nurture the entire body, providing a total sense of overall well being.
 
Patti Corscaden, Licensed Massage Therapist of Newcastle, Maine is Board Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Patti has over 24 years of experience and practice in a variety of therapeutic massage modalities such as Oncology Massage, Hospital Based Massage Therapy, Reiki, Elder Massage, Lymphatic Drainage and CranioSacral Therapies. She is a 1994 graduate of the Downeast School of Massage in Waldoboro and serves on the faculty there. Currently she serves on the Board of Directors for the Society for Oncology Massage. Patti is passionate that safe, effective and affordable massage be available to everyone.

2/5: Tom and Lee Ann Szelog “By a Maine River – A Year of Looking Closely”

Join us… Monday, from February 5, 3:00 to 4:00pm.

“My time was managed by Mother Nature.” So writes nature and wildlife photographer Thomas Mark Szelog in the introduction of the book, By a Maine River: A Year of Looking Closely. And, as this book proves, what a privilege it was! Szelog and his wife Lee Ann document – in Thomas’s photos and in writings by them both – the experience of looking closely at their 70 acres of the Maine woods through the passage of one full year. Tom set himself a challenge the sage of Walden Pond would have understood and endorsed: find and photograph—within the confines of one seventy acre, fairly typical central Maine property—at least one interesting, surprising, beautiful, or memorable wildlife or nature image every week, for an entire year. The Szelog’s will present a narrated photography presentation about their work at the Lincoln Home on February 5, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

The making of By a Maine River was an ambitious project, one that required patience and skill and sometimes considerable fortitude. Enduring all kinds of weather, and sometimes waiting out the last of the daylight, Thomas kept his vigil and got his photographs. The result is an unusual visual journal, a personal almanac, a keepsake unique to one time and one place yet conveying a universal message: we are not the only beings making a living from this land. In his year of looking closely, Szelog captured moments and images that Maine still offers in abundance—a great blue heron’s transfixing stare; a translucent snake skin on brightly multicolored lichens; a gauzy snow devil catching the sun for an instant, a coyote coolly assessing a human intruder to its domain. “I was alone for a year in the forest, but I was not lonely,” writes the single-minded photographer. “In the forest I found peace.” As the images on the pages of By a Maine River suggest, he found that and more.

By A Maine River is the couple’s second book, published by Down East Books. Their first book, Our Point of View – Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse chronicles the 14 years they resided at Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine. The book was honored with a number of awards and recognitions: Selected as one of the Best Photo Books by Shutterbug magazine; winner of Best Maine-Themed Book in the Maine Literary Awards from the Maine Writers and Publishers Association; and a  Gold Medal winner from the Independent Publishers Association for best regional non-fiction.

Thomas Mark Szelog has spent his entire life observing, writing and/or photographing wildlife. He has been a full-time professional photographer for 35 years, specializing in photographing wildlife, nature, and landscapes. He has earned the reputation and is often described as “one of Maine’s most renowned wildlife photographers,” and is a recipient of the Philip Hyde Award, presented annually to a photographer who is working to preserve the condition of the natural environment through the art of photography. Lee Ann is the President of Simply Put, LLC, specializing in presentations on communication, attitude, human relations and wellness, of ourselves and our planet. As passionate wildlife advocates, they also work collaboratively, sharing their words and photographs in narrated photography presentations and books to educate and inspire people about the important role our natural world plays in our lives.

Admission is free.
