Awhile back I ran across this gem of wisdom from Albert Einstein: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” This got my wheels spinning!
Of course, we would never expect a fish to climb a tree, or even think it was failing in some way because it couldn't.
And yet, we, as a general human population, are not so gentle or understanding with ourselves and our own limitations.
Andrew Taylor Still, a physician who founded the first school of osteopathy, taught his medical students: “….your patient had better save his life and money by passing you by as a failure, until you are by knowledge qualified to deal with the lymphatics.” Our lymphatic system is often referred to as our filtering or detox system. However, it’s much more than that. The lymphatic system intricately intertwined with our immune system. Every where that we have blood vessels, we a
The holidays are in full swing, and for most folks that means family and work parties, end-of-term festivals and concerts for the kids (plus helping them study for tests and hand in extra credit before the term ends), shopping to do, treats to bake, loved ones to visit... and the list goes on. Our brains and bodies can only handle so much. With all these stressors, it is easy push yourself beyond your limits and end up grumpy and exhausted, unable to enjoy the festivities. Ad

Visceral Manipulation sounds like something out of a surgical textbook or Hannibal Lecter movie- but it is really a fabulous an non-invasive way to restore balance to your internal organs. Your organs are not just loosely floating around in your body, they are supported by tissue called fascia and pleura. The whole thing is a sealed system under pressure that squishes everything tightly together; each organ is wrapped in its own pleura and bathed in a little bit of fluid so i
Going to counseling or "therapy" can seem intimidating if you don't know what to expect. Many people delay counseling,thinking that they're not in a deep enough crisis to need it. Counseling can help with such a wide range of issues from needing help to reach a goal or getting through a stressful period in your life, to support in changing family relationships, addiction recovery, to depression, anxiety or trauma recovery.

Summer break is over and children everywhere are seen walking to the bus stop with excited faces and heavy backpacks, but are those backpacks actually causing your child harm?
