5 Ways to be a Good SK Teacher

Posted on July 3, 2017 · Posted in Energy Medicine

I am happiest when teaching a Specialized Kinesiology class. (Don’t tell my husband!) Any of them. All of them. Touch For Health, GEMS (Goal, Element, Mode Stack), SIPS (Stress Indicator Point System), TFH Instructor Training Workshops – I don’t care, they are all ridiculously fun to teach in their own..

I don’t often write about my travel experiences. After all, this isn’t a travel blog; it’s about health. But when my love of tromping about in far off places meets my passion for Specialized Kinesiology? Well that’s about as good as it gets! In April I attended the 4th Annual..

GF Sourdough Bread with Kombucha Starter

Posted on January 29, 2017 · Posted in Fabulous Food, Health Should be Fun

Because warm homemade bread is basically love in carbohydrate form. Two of my ‘kitchen’ goals for our little homestead this year were, 1) to keep my kombucha continuously brewing, and 2) to bake bread every week. We are gluten-free as my youngest son has some issues with digesting it and..
