Where Does It Hurt?

Female_Poster1How many people do you know experience some kind of discomfort or pain on a daily basis? Do you have chronic pain? Do you experience just a nagging ache or are you hit with searing migraines out of the blue. Arthritis, Lupus, Fibro-myalgia, depression to name a few. How about those old sports injuries? Have you missed work or a family gathering due to pain, the inability to move or get dressed? Clinicalresearch.com shares these statistics;


  • 120 million adults (20% of the world population) suffer from pain worldwide
  • 60 million—1 in 10 adults—are newly diagnosed with chronic pain each year
  • 1 in 5 adults suffer from moderate to severe chronic pain
  • 1 in 3 adults have trouble living independently due to pain

In the  United States…

Those are huge numbers!

How do you cope? ? Aspirin, acetaminophen, prescription meds, supplements…what works? Are you tired of trying ‘things’? You have heard it all I am sure. Especially when you are up at 3am and flipping channels trying to distract yourself what is not letting you sleep comfortably.

As a massage therapist I can assure you there are so many benefits to bodywork. Especially when it comes to relieving muscular pain and discomfort. Even beyond the muscular, mental relief is literally at hand. I see so many people who suffer, some silently, some not so quietly. You may or may not know about someone’s pain. People use canes, crutches, braces and it is clear to an observer they have an issue. For those that don’t use any type of device, we typically do not have any idea what some people suffer. Beyond bodywork, what do I send my clients home with? In the past I have used BioFreeze, Sombra, Tiger balm to name a few. Today, I send them home with PowerStrips™!

Today I was part of something big!

I co-hosted an event that brought people together to learn about PowerStrips™ which are listed as a Class 1, Medical Device with the FDA that can be used for  pain relief. The PowerStrips™ are like a thin adhesive fabric that can be cut to size and the top side has the word love in 25 different languages printed on it, but more on that later.  After our guests signed in for our event and received their lucky door prize ticket, I whisked them to the side and ‘stripped’ them! I asked “where does it hurt?” Some people had me place the PowerStrips™ on their neck, shoulder or low back. One woman in particular showed me her hands, specifically a swollen knuckle on her right hand. She demonstrated how stiff her thumb and fingers were. She could not close the hand…I wrapped a ring sized piece of the PowerStrips™ just below that swollen knuckle and placed the rest of the PowerStrips™ on her forearm. The meeting got underway and as it happened I ended up sitting next to her. Not fifteen minutes into the presentation I notice she is moving that sore hand and looking behind her to where her daughter was seated. She lifted her arm and squeezed the hand shut, turning to see if her daughter saw. She looked at me with tears falling from her eyes and whispered, “I haven’t been able to close that hand in the longest time, I can’t even remember when.” That is powerful. I got tissues for her, the daughter and myself.  When it came time to share what I thought would be our own testimonials about this amazing product, it turned out to be our guests that shared what they were just experiencing. Testimonials about people who could get out bed again, people who could put their socks on with out help or falling over, people coping with COPD and finding after wearing the PowerStrips™ for a few weeks they could breath outside in the cold air again! This is something BIG! Restoring hope. Restoring love!

What are these things!?  PowerStrips™ are a patented fusion of modern energy and ancient herbs. Everyone and every part of the body needs energy. PowerStrips™, worn daily, bring energy to those parts of the body that need it. Completely natural, each topically applied PowerStrip has two layers. The outer layer contains elemental Germanium. The inner or adhesive layer contains a proprietary blend of: Fermented Korean Red Ginseng, Silver & (Alpha-c CMPTM) Marine Phytoplankton.

Who do know in chronic pain? Is it a little or a lot? It doesn’t matter because big pain, small pain, occasional pain, it is all debilitating. Pain robs us of life, it takes away our hope. Pain does not discern who it can or will affect. Pain meds and their effects, that is a whole blog post in it self…

I can see the future. Giving people their lives back. Physically, mentally, financially. That is something big! Check out for yourselves;



peace, love and power!

empowerment thru PowerStrips™
