What’s it like to take a Touch for Health Intensive in Costa Rica? After teaching my first one here in August I wrote this blog post called The Power of One (which you can read here) about the experience from my perspective and what I learned in the process. Today..

Quiet/Noisy Life

Posted on November 9, 2017 · Posted in Costa Rica Ramblings

This life is full of contradictions. The one that I am thinking of today has to do with noise and what that means to us. Because it is never quiet here: the river rushes steadily below us, the cicadas sing in the rainforest, the rain cascades unrelentingly through the leaves...

GEMS Nutrition

Posted on October 28, 2017 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Fabulous Food, Vitamins Minerals and Herbs (oh my!)

We love food. I have written before about how, when you start doing any type of homesteading, you become basically food-obsessed. I think many people in the holistic health industry find themselves in this position, learning more about the body means learning more about how to feed it for optimum..

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..

IASK Meeting of Associations and Conference in Bergamo: A few thoughts.

Posted on May 8, 2017 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

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..
