FEATURE TOPIC:THE 3 R's: REHABILITATE, REJUVENATE, RELAX!

When we slip and fall—physically, mentally, or emotionally—it is comforting to know there is a way forward—hand-holds that move us to a better, safer, more inspiring place.

In the December 2017 edition of Health&Healing, we ask experts to describe the tools and essentials of rejuvenation and rehabilitation, no matter the cause of our maladies.

Rehabilitation is a key concept, of course, in the step-by-step efforts typical of restoring good levels of function for many victims of stroke and accidents, for post-surgery patients, and for those suffering emotional and mental trauma. And it is a near-mantra for the work of physical therapists, chiropractors, dentists, and many others.

We think of rejuvenationas a synonym for youth and vigor—often, the restoration of who we physically are now to the younger version of who we were (possibly now new and improved!) The work of facial plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists represent this concept, and coaches, personal trainers, dietitians, psychotherapists and other professionals also guide patients in this process.

And we all care about (or we should!) the deep, therapeutic benefits of meditative relaxation and sound, restorative sleep, whatever the venue: an upscale spa, daily periods of mindfulness meditation, yoga and tai chi, the healing wonders of skillful massage therapy, and other options.

These 3 Rs—rehabilitation, rejuvenation, and relaxation—are key aspects for gaining and maintaining good health, which we will explore in length and depth in the December 2017 edition of Health&Healing. You are invited to be part of the conversation.

OTHER VOICES, OTHER CHOICES ARTICLES

A special section of the publication—Other Voices, Other Choices—provides a forum for area practitioners to submit articles related to the feature topic. In this section, we invite health care/health service providers who have a special connection to the feature topic to write articles about their work.

Physical therapists, mental health professionals, coaches, and body work specialists are among the many “rehabilitation experts”—healers who guide us back to health and function after surgery, illness, and injuries. They also can be “rejuvenation experts”—helping to regain youthful abilities as we age.

Other “rejuvenation experts” include aestheticians, dietitians, and trainers who can help in restoring more youthful (and healthier) appearance.

“Relaxation experts” are the healers and teachers who can help us to calmer, less stressful, more balanced lives: yoga and tai chi instructors, sleep specialists, massage therapists, and counselers.

If you are among these many healers, we invite you to add your voice to the conversation in the December issue of Health&Healing.
