hen we do open up to each other and share our realities, it is powerful and inspiring to witness the bond that communication creates. There are so many times clients and I have shared stories and parts of who we are and found so many commonalities. It makes you sit back at the end of the day and realize we are never alone. Connection creates community and without this only judgment and fear can reside.Read More

She then placed warm hot towels across my body as she finished massaging my front side.
I was jelly.Read More

"Practice what you preach" ran through my head. I took a bath. I took a minute to walk away and get that solitude I crave. (fun fact - people that can work hours on end in a dark and quiet room are most likely introverts, lol) I felt bad doing it, guilty for not spending time with my kids, panicked the dishes weren’t done, and wondering if I was a bad person/mom/wife for taking that time. But I grabbed a book and dove in. Something had to be here printed in these pages for me to grasp onto.Read More
"We'll take them both please" with a smile on my face as I watched hers wash over with surprised joy. It was such a feel-good moment you guys - my heart swelled - I felt like the best big sister in the world - and then the words came.....Words out of the cashier's mouth. Words that make your eyes squint up a bit and your lips pucker.
"WOW, I wish MY mom was that nice!"

We recognize this as the appearance of thinner skin, wrinkles, fine lines and achy joints in the morning. But here's the deal: you can slow the effects of collagen loss, and you can also take steps to restore collagen production.Read More
How we choose to answer the question I asked above, how we choose to look at the cards dealt to us over the last year, how we choose to think and act will only attract more of that energy. If we think of ourselves instead of human beings having a spiritual experience - but rather spiritual beings having a human experience, there becomes a shift in perspective.Read More

The other day I scheduled a post on Facebook with an image of my morning routine. I was so excited for the feedback I received from it and thought this would be a perfect place to expand on some of the questions asked. After all, if one person has questions, it is likely more people do, too. "I noticed you seem to be applying two serums based on this picture....what is the purpose? I thought you can only do one at a time? Maybe I'm wrong, lol"Read More
More and more people are seeing complementary ways to achieve wellness. Some medical practices only treat symptoms and never fully address the initial cause of the problem, or fail to look beyond the physical to address the mental or emotional state we have. Energy work can help you achieve wellness by addressing the physical, mental and emotional issues that can be holding you back from achieving connection and flow of mind, body, and spirit.Read More
