Grateful

It’s now late fall, the trees are all bare,

I’m grateful for all those in my life that care.

I look back on this year

With both laughter and tears.

The Blessings I have go on without end,

Love and support from family and friends.

Some things are hard & really move slow,

I’m grateful for challenges for they help me grow.

At times things hot and are really burning,

But aren’t failures just times of great learning?

I’m grateful for clients who move like slugs,

So when they feel better I get smiles and hugs.

Friends help me maneuver life’s little struggles,

And keep things moving with all there’s to juggle.

One last bit of gratitude before I end,

I’m grateful for inspiration & lessons from each Blessed friend.

Encourage-One-Another1

From a tired-eyed look of prolonged pain, to a smile of  hopeful relief. From a tense restrictive posture of discomfort, to amazement of newly acquired mobility without pain. From limpy walk or gimpy arm, to fluid gait and a triumphant wave. This is why I love to do what I do.

We all have challenges. We can learn from them. And, sometimes we get stuck in our stories and need help to move through them. We need encouragement.

en·cour·age·ment  –   enˈkərijmənt/ noun

  • the action of giving someone support, confidence, or hope.
  • persuasion to do or to continue something.
  • the act of trying to stimulate the development of an activity, state, or belief.
Skilled care and cutting edge techniques help relieve symptoms and promote healing, AND these efforts are enhanced by the clients doing some self-care. This is where the encouragement is helpful. I recently gave ideas for simple small steps of self-care to do every day to a client faced with the challenge of a great deal of inflammation. Including: sharing resources to improve nutrition- removing causative and adding healing foods; doing simple exercises spread throughout the day as to not aggravate the condition; drinking a tea( the client loves tea) with anti- inflammatory effects; adding music to the exercises (the client loves music) to inspire and uplift!
I love to share information and ideas. Good info and ideas with the intention of being helpful. Giving others hope and stimulating their ability to develop healing behaviors. Encouragement. Yes, this is one of my strengths.

Tricks to Treat You

The human body is an amazing creature. It’s healing potential is endless .  It responds to input. The trick is, what input will give you the desired output? All of our choices… food, activity, thinking, attitude, have a physical impact. Each choice is not immediately observable, but accumulation of choices manifest to outward signs. That may be vibrant glowing health, or physical ailments or diseases.

I’m attracted to leading edge innovative techniques that facilitate the body’s wisdom and promote efficient, effective outcomes.  I shared some of the tricks to treat flexibility limitations and thus positively impact posture. Posture is critical to an optimally functioning nervous system. I have more tricks in my tool box to treat your muscles, joints and fascia. Hands-on care combined with effective re-education exercises promotes movement that feels good. You deserve it.

Thanks to all the participants this weekend for being interactive and asking great questions. I enjoy giving input that helps you LIVE WELL.

Love your You!

 …..simple things to take care of you????????????????????????????????????????

Wear a scarf when the weather’s cold,

keep you warmer and your shoulders relaxed

Bend your knees when you forward fold

protect your joints and save your back

Lift with your legs when you’re shoveling snow

get a good workout and care for your spine

Rest from the things that keep you on the go

All is well…really it’s fine

Spend time in quiet….a bath or outside

be more connected to you and Spirit

Hug a friend if you’ve laughed or cried

tell a good joke to those who will hear it

Eat whole foods, steer clear of the sweets

slow inflammation and nourish your cells

See your P.T. lest injury repeat

Feel good, move great and be Living Well!
