The World Massage Festival is AWESOME!!!
Our cabin is unbelievable! Thank you Cherokee Cabin Rentals for such a great place to rest, work, & enjoy while we attend this conference. They have been so accomodating, the place is gorgeous, we have a grill, stove, microwave, full bathroom, full deck, the deck has a gate for the kids, a TV, 2 queen beds, they noticed we brought DVDs so they brought us a DVD player (we didn't even ask!), when the kids were napping they left fresh towels & toilet paper in a sealed bag on the deck, & the view :-O......
and made some INCREDIBLE contacts through https://www.amtanc.org/" target="_blank">AMTA-NC, https://www.upledger.com/" target="_blank">Upledger, & https://www.fsmta.org/" target="_blank">FSMTA... we've done videos with Gael, FSMTA, Beth..... we've done some classes, have more classes to come, bought some amazing products from Soothing Touch, Cryoderm, Founder's Hemp... mom has gotten work done by Pillossage

It has been so wonderful <3
The kids got to see some horses today & play in the river yesterday. I've had dinner with the awesome Badass Bodyworkers & watched Rebooking Mastery make a spotlight appearence at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Y'all, this has been such a wonderful experience. We will be happy to get home & decompress, get back to normal life, & start filling custom orders again... but this, this experience has been.. priceless :-)

Bethany here, as many may have noticed, our Facebook page has been quiet for a couple weeks now & the website has seemed strangly unchanging for the same time.... well, yeah. That'd be my bad. Kind of dropped the ball (or box) while moving from an apartment to a house with 2 little ones. But so you know, boxes all unpacked or not (definitely NOT), we're back to updating & chatting like usual... sewing never stopped at least (go Momma GO!)
Event! Event! Event!
We'll be set up in the Vendor hall with a TON of products available to try & buy. If you want to order something custom but want to pick it up at the Festival we can do that, and you won't have to pay shipping then The vendor hall is FREE to everyone, you don't have to be attending the Festival to stop in. BUT, if you want to get some great CEUs this is the place to do it. We have purchased the Vendor Freedom Package, what this means is that we will be attending the World Massage Festival EVERY YEAR This will be the ONLY event that we plan on attending consistently. We want to make this a big thing every year. Our special event. This year we are giving away one of our 2-Piece Back Packs through the festival, a Custom Holster Order at our booth (potentially more giveaways, we'll see ;)), & we're going to have little bonuses for larger orders. Not to mention that you don't have to pay shipping if you buy at the Festival (or pre-order & pick up at the Festival).
We are so incredibly excited for this event, we honestly cannot express. We hope to see you there, we would love to give out some awesome hugs to our AMAZING customers

Bethany here I'm so happy to let you know that we have moved the Mother's Day Pampering Foot Wrap from The Pipeline to the Shop!!!!!! This pack is nice, so comfortable. It has great weight to it so you feel comforted. The rice-channels are designed just perfectly to WRAP around your feet. It can be used under your legs or on top of them, hot or cold, & comes in 3 BEAUTIFUL fabrics (seriously, the picture doesn't do them justice). We hope that everyone enjoys them as much as we enjoy making them! These are perfect to incorporate in your practice, in your relaxation rooms, they are great as gifts (for yourself or others), & would be phenomenal for those you currently reside in assisted living.
We will be updating our Retail Packet to include 2 discount & purchase options.
We will be at the WORLD MASSAGE FESTIVAL May 7th- May 10th!!!!!!! Don't miss us! If you want to meet the Pocket-Masters, this is the perfect time to do it We would love to meet you in person & give you a giant hug for your support & encouragement. PLUS, you don't have to pay shipping if you buy at the Festival

Hey everyone, Bethany here. In case you don't know, I'm a licensed massage therapist in the states of Arkansas where I live & Illinois where I am from. I LOVE what I do! It has given me a lot of insight for helping with the design of our Hot/Cold Therapy Packs & even MORE insight for what works for a Holster & what doesn't. This is actually one of our major points at Perfect Pockets PLUS, our products are designed FOR LMT's BY an LMT. So, with that in mind, you can probably guess that I am a bit biased toward massage therapy in general .... so I want to talk about that for a minute...
I had a client this week who only gets a massage once a year... ONCE A YEAR. This gentleman was very nice, tall, healthy, fit.... but in pain. He works out (yay staying active!), but only got massage when things "got messed up"... this year's massage was for a strained back from a particular CrossFit workout.
I wish this kind of story was rare, but it's not. So many people only get massage when something is wrong. And I understand that, when something hurts on me you can bet that pretty penny I will be getting a massage & a chiropractic adjustment (not at the same time ;)). BUT, we in the USA need to start thinking about preventative care & not just emergency care. We need to be thinking about how to avoid injury rather than ONLY treating it after the fact. We need to treat out bodies like we treat our cars. We are valuable!!! Our bodies? Well, it's the only one we've got. Why do we take our vehicles in for oil changes? To maintain the health of our vehicle's engine & get the optimal performance from it. We don't get the oil change after the vehicle has stalled, by that point something bigger is wrong & it will be much more expensive to fix... so why do we do this with our bodies?
Think about it. Your massage therapist can be the "country shade tree mechanic" for your body. For that matter, so can your chiropracter, your acupuncturist, your dietician.... let's start changing how we think of our body, let's start considering our body as a valuable piece of machinery that needs to be tuned up every now & then. We are worth that, don't you think?

Facebook. Oh how we love it & hate it all at once, don't you? The funy memes, the cute videos, the hilarious/terrifying pictures, & the constant updates from friends, family, & "online peoples"... not to mention the politics. Oh the politics (*insert disapproving head shake*).
But, there is something about Facebook that keeps us all coming back. The connection. The conection with people across the globe, across the country, even across the living room. The things you find out about dreams, passions, hurts, & associates that they would never tell you in person, suddenly these things become free flowing words on Facebook.
Well, we're not immune to this. My mom & I get the chance to keep up with people we have since stopped getting phone calls from long ago, but still hold that special place in our hearts. And for us, Perfect Pockets PLUS has this *thumbs up* shaped place in our hearts. Facebook is where Perfect Pockets PLUS started, where I listed some extra holsters to sell, it's where the first request for a custom holster was placed, & where it exploded with people just like me (Bethany) who had trouble finding Holsters that fit our personality, size, & product needs.
As much as Facebook can drive everyone crazy (and oh can it), we love it! Thank you to everyone who follows us on Facebook & takes the time to leave us such amazing reviews... Facebook is our "Old Stomping Grounds" & we will always have a special place for it.
Keep an eye on our facebook page to see specials & watch as we feature our products & show the pieces, the snippets that make them so unique & full of awesomeness!

We just added a new item to The Pipeline, the Hip Health Belt... so let's talk hips. The way the hips are designed & around to the pelvis, there's the boney structure of the actual pelvis. And though many are under the impression that the bones are fixed to each other, immobile, that is not actually the case.
This belt is designed to assit those having hip pain. This can also be flipped around to hold the pack against the front of the pelvis (can we say PMS savior?) My favorite part is that these can be worn while working (again, can we say PMS savior?!).
Take a look & leave us your thoughts!

Well, we finally did it! Thanks to an awesome request from an equally awesome customer, we had Hand/Feet Mitts in The Pipeline.... And due to the work-intensive nature of massage therapy, we had been working a design for Self-Care Sleeves to help with fatigue, pain, & maintenance....
Now, we can happily announce, those 2 items have been removed from The Pipeline & into the limelight of our Therapy Packs page!!! Hooray!!
Take a look, tell us your thoughts, & enjoy the possibilities
"We are really excited about getting these done. Too often therapists ignore their self-care, let's be honest, we suck at it. We love taking care of people, but when it comes to ourselves, well, we just suck at it lol. I wanted for us to work on the Self-Care Sleeves knowing that it would give therapists a chance for self-care while on the way home, watching TV, or if you're really talented, while working on the computer. Then we had a lovely request for Hand Mitts to pair with Paraffin Dips, this seems like a no-brainer now, but at the time it was like "huh? Should we?" DUH! Yes we should! So we did ;).
Now between the 2, we have your hands, fingers, feet, & toes covered. Warm & toasty, & ready for break before the next day begins :)"

Welcome to our Website & BLOG!!!! We are so pleased to meet you & to share with you all the nifty stuff we've been working.
My name is Bethany & I am a Licensed Massage Therapist/Stay-At-Home-Mom, the daughter.
As you browse our pages you will see that we are a Mother/Daughter team; momma does the sewing, daughter does the managing. Both do the designing! We love this!
Perfect Pockets PLUS allows us to be creative, to fill the gaps that seem to be present in the Massage Industry Supply Options. Body-Designed Hot/Cold Therapy Packs, Custom-Crafted Massage Holsters, Self-Care that actually works WITH you, & reasonable prices to make it all possible.
Want to design something new just for your practice? We can help with that too. Want to sell our AMAZING products to help your clients get the most out of their sessions? We can do that too
We want to help you do the best you can. When I was having trouble finding comfortable belts for my creme, my mom helped me fix the problem. When my mom wanted to make body packs that were effective, I helped her follow muscle groups. We work together for both of our benefit, let us work together for your benefit
