Now that the weather has decided to turn in our favor, the opportunities for exercise abound. Time to prepare flower beds and vegetable plots....get the bikes out of storage.....toss some baseballs with the kids....stroll the River Walk. Remember to start out slow, after our months of hibernation. But if you should overdo it, we have soothing essential oils and therapeutic massage treatments to help you heal.
