The Power of Empathy

I found this video incredibly powerful, both in images and ideas. I appreciate Brene Brown’s every word, down to the last line: “Rarely can a response make something better. What makes something better is connection.”
(Her TED talk about vulnerability hangovers and shame is also amazingly inspiring to me.)

Top 12! Top 12!

Good news, everyone! Freed Bodyworks was featured in DCist’s “The 12 Best Places And Ways To Splurge In D.C.“!

For real– the company we kept includes The Columbia Room, car2go, the Kennedy Center, and Komi.

FREED BODYWORKS:

For me, the best type of splurge is one that lasts. And nothing beats a really good massage on an aching shoulder or painful lower back. Aries at Freed Bodyworks in Southeast D.C. is not only a wonderful massage therapist, she’s also a great listener. It’s a holistic-type of massage that leaves you feeling good in the body and brain. And at $110 for 90 minutes, it’s barely a splurge. — Sarah Anne Hughes

Freed Bodyworks is located at 1426 Pennsylvania Avenue SE.

Yep. Good news.
