Episode 18: Another Dream, Lived. With Kristy Dhaliwal

People who takes leaps and say yes to what they truly want have good stories to share.  These stories are inspiring, leaving us feeling uplifted and motivated to take on the world.  In this episode, we talk with Kristy Dhaliwal, an amazing gal who has taken leaps to find her path.  She’s a massage therapist, entrepreneur and yoga junkie.  Her path wasn’t always clear though and there was some searching to be had before she found what she loved.  She shares her story of how she found her passion and built a business with it.  She also gives us a couple tips on how to get rid of those annoying knots in our muscles.

Key Nuggets:

  • Trigger points are what we usually call the knots in our muscles.  They form when certain muscles get overworked (ex. sitting at a desk for eight hours).
  • Many people experience shoulder/back pain due to sitting all day long.  To relieve this, stretch out your chest! 
  • To release trigger points try using a tennis ball (squash ball or rubber bouncy ball for more intense release) and placing it right on a trigger point.  Gently put some weight on it until you feel a softening.
  • Doing some yoga before a massage can make the most of your appointment.  The movement helps stretch and warm the muscles up.

One of Your Biggest Lessons So Far:

Everything happens for a reason.  An oldie but a goodie - keep in your back pocket when faced with challenging times!
