What’s in a name? Losing my ‘K’

Posted on February 3rd, 2019 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

What’s in a name? We have long known that ‘Kinesiology’ is not the perfect word to describe what we do. Yes, there is muscle testing and yes, we study muscle movement, but we know that what we do falls into a broad spectrum. Some of our modalities are overtly concerned..

Balancing the World, from the Heart

Posted on September 30th, 2018 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

I was actually a little nervous yesterday in that ‘what if you throw a party and no-one comes?’ kind of way. Yesterday (September 29) was World Heart Day, and so all over social media I could see posts and memes warning about heart disease, about diet, about the statistical likelihood..

Posted on May 2nd, 2018 · Posted in Health Should be Fun

Warning: nostalgia which may or may not become schmaltzy. My old office is closing. Happily Holistic, the business we began when we returned from Costa Rica, built for five years and then sold. I am feeling a little bit heartbroken over this. I knew that it wasn’t mine anymore after..

Posted on April 19th, 2018 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

Putting something new out into the world can be terrifying. Saturday morning I woke before my alarm, even though it was early and I had been up until 1:00am the night before working on the final details. Launch day – time to ship. For the last 7 months I have..
