My website has been updated with a new banner, a simplified menu, and other changes to make it easier to access and read. More changes and refinements to come so periodically review my website when you can. Thank you, Laura Rubinstein, my social media consultant, for helping me!
Since November 2013 and on “new moon”, I’ve been doing some body cleanses (also called flushes) that have made me feel so much better. Highly recommended if you are ready! Overall, these flushes have changed my taste buds to eating even “more better” with less sugar and more fresh foods. I’m more energized to do more too. The main resource I’ve been using is a by Andreas Moritz, The Amazing Liver-Gallbladder Flush. What I like about his approach is that he has you cleanse your kidneys first, then your digestive track, and finally your liver and gallbladder. His approach is sane and you use products from your home and grocery store. My last cleanse I mixed-in two protocols from Sherry Rogers (from her book, Wellness Against All Odds) – I used her liver-gallbladder flush and “The Purge* that aids the removal of metabolic wastes from the body. All good stuff, but you have to be ready for this type of “bodywork” because it does reset your body-mind-spirit to a new, healthier norm.
* The Purge has several versions of technique, but the original protocol came from Dr. William Donald Kelley in his book, One Answer to Cancer, (and this link is the book!) – another good read.
In January, I gave a presentation to the The Charter 100 of San Diego about Aging Gracefully – Natural Medicine in a Fast Moving World. I spoke about the massage therapy I do with my clients in assisting them to eliminate pain and restore their natural alignment. It was a well-attended event and enjoyed the connections I made there, too.
Lastly, I attended the Sedona Yoga Festival in February. What a great experience being in Sedona and meeting lots of health conscious people! Thank you Marguerite Baca for inviting me! It’s amazing how all natural medicine therapies can be blended together to help people without the need for surgeries and the use of drugs, like massage therapy, physical therapy, and yoga. The best class I took was about pelvic health which included all three of these therapies. The topic was urinary incontinence: 66% of adult women and 33% men have it, but do NOT tell their doctors because it’s embarrassing. YES, you can get rid of it, but it’s about 1) finding why you have it and 2) then you retrain your bladder (through yoga, breathing, exercises, and/or massage therapy (like structural Integration)) and change your patterns/habits so that you don’t have any leakage. A great resource for more information about pelvic floor health is by Pelvic Health Solutions. If you are interested in finding practitioners who specialize in incontinence, contact me by email or phone.
To your health!
Body Sense blends features on a variety of massage-bodywork therapies with tips for healthy living. The Body Sense philosophy considers massage-bodywork therapy an integral facet of a healthy lifestyle, not just an indulgence. Body Sense is about educating the client, too! I personally enjoy reading Body Sense, because the articles are short and informative. Instead of “hearing it” from me, you can benefit from reading from other holistic health writers, too.
The Spring 2014 issue of Body Sense has just been published! Here’s a listing of the main articles:

I hope you take pleasure in reading Body Sense as much as I do! More issues can be found in the Body Sense Digital Archive.
Are you dependent on pain medications or considering splints and other supportive devices (like canes, shoe inserts, etc.), shots (like cortisone, steroids, etc.), and surgery to alleviate pain?
Are you tired of chronic pain, tingling, numbness, always getting injured, experiencing stress fractures, and lack of strength anywhere in your body?
Do you want improved movement, better range of motion, and restful sleep?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I can help you with the connective tissue massage-bodywork therapies I use during sessions.
