By Sue Shekut, Owner, Working Well Massage, Licensed Massage Therapist, Certified Wellness Coach, ACSM Personal Trainer

For the past ten years, Working Well Massage has provided quality massage services to Chicago area companies, schools, residents and shoppers at Whole Foods Markets. Now we are bringing our highly skilled massage therapists to Whole Foods Market’s new Wellness Club inside the Lincoln Park location!

Starting in September, 2011, Working Well Massage will offer hour-long massages (Deep tissue, Swedish and Sports massages) on a massage table verses on a massage chair. We have assembled some of the best massage therapists in the city of Chicago to offer our clients a relaxing therapeutic experience…in a Whole Foods Market Wellness Club!  Clients will be able to receive a great table massage–either at our chair massage station or in the Massage Room at the new Wellness Club–and then grocery shop. And since the Wellness Club will also be offering yoga and fitness classes our clients can get a massage before or after they workout!

More info to come about the Wellness Club, the massage services offered at Whole Foods Market and details on scheduling your table massage with Working Well Massage soon!

Recently I gained  a new Twitter follower, Ted Stark. Ted likely found me via one of my many posts about hiking in nature (with pics included). I checked out Ted’s website, and was visually inspired. Ted’s nature photos make me want to travel and see first-hand the many beautiful sights he captures in his pics. Ted also take great pics of wildlife and urban scenes, but it’s his nature photos that move me the most. To go to Ted’s Website and photo gallery, click on this link.

Ted Stark, photographer

For those of us that live and work in an urban environment, simply looking at photo of a restful nature scene can help relax us for a moment.  Nature pics take us out of our fast paced multitasking mode and give our eyes and minds something to focus on.

Check out Ted’s photos and see for yourself if you are moved or inspired. It’s more likely to relax you than a game of Angry Birds. 🙂



Who is Ted Stark and Why is He So Wild About Wildlife Photos?

From his website: Theodore A. Stark is a Colorado native and an avid nature, wildlife, and architectural photographer. He also does limited portraiture work, focusing in the candid style. Stark is a graduate of the University of Arizona with a degree in Management Information Systems. He and his wife, Erin, currently live in Centennial, Colorado.

Stark has been involved with photography since 2001 when he experienced a life changing event that, literally, changed his perspective on the world around. Add to that Stark is a Type I Diabetic and, as he puts it, “… I am aware that I very well may lose my vision at some point, so I should share what I can see while I still can.”

Find Ted’s tweets on Twitter here. And, if you are so moved by his work that you must have some for yourself, he does sell calendars, prints and books of his photography here.
