Body Worlds & the Brain: Our 3 Pound Gem

For those of you who HAVE been to one of the touring Body Worlds exhibits, you know what I mean when I say it is absolutely REMARKABLE.  My in laws took us to the museum and we were in awe of what we can now view through the progression of science.  I was skeptical at first, not knowing how I would feel about seeing the insides of a human being (I've always been very squeamish), but I was VERY fascinated! As a massage therapist, it was actually EXTREMELY helpful to get a refreshers course of what I have been working on all this time. (: My favorite part of the exhibit was the 'prenatal' section (I was worried this would make me cry, but it actually made me very happy and overjoyed), but of course the fully posed musculature's were spectacular as well.  I highly recommend visiting if you have not been able to do so yet! The North American exhibit is currently in San Diego, but I'm sure it'll come to you soon enough.  Get your tickets! (:

I went in NYC last summer and it was phenomenal!
