Don’t Yuk My Yum

Being a vegetarian for over a decade now has allowed me a lot of conversation around nutrition. Many who choose to eat animal protein have believed I would debate with them because I choose to be vegetarian. I started saying, “Don’t yuk my yum and I won’t yours”. Nutrition and what we choose for our sustenance and pleasure is truly a personal decision. OPTIONS is in my opinion the best diet we can ALL follow. Allow ourselves to determine if what we put into our bodies is in alignment with our mind, body, and spirit. Most importantly be sure you choose happy foods-those that give you joy and allow your body to feel its best!

The language of touch can be spoken through massage. Simply stated, the simple act of touch boosts oxytocin. Oxytocin has a calming effect and studies shows that it reduces stress. Massage is an opportunity to receive care and compassion in the way of physical touch as well as being fully seen and heard by your massage therapist. Those in combination have a synergist energetic effect on healing.

If you want to know the health of your body, look at your skin. Taking care of your skin is more than just your appearance.  Our skin is the largest and one of the most important organs of the human body. It has many roles in the maintenance of life and health. Facials, body treatments and massage are ways you can nourish, hydrate, and truly care for your most vital organ.

Stress is a sign that there is imbalance in your life. Either physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Stress allows us to take a pause and reprioritize what we need to bring more ease into our lives. Simply stated, disease is Dis-Ease. Acknowledge where you might be stressed to reassess and decrease bringing back more ease into your life. This will attract in wellness! You deserve a healthy, balanced life

Meditation is merely intentional thought and breath. We are meditating all day long when we are running through our “to do” lists. Switch this up with just a couple minutes a day of focused thought and breath on what brings you ease. Each breath in is a chance to reset, each breath out is a moment to let go. Continue this until you can slowly increase your time practicing.

Minute 2


What does that mean? Simply, it is the ability to create an effect that is greater than the sum of the individual effects. When you combine services, you can truly be enveloped in a full mind, body, and spiritual experience. Holistic practices allow the connection of your whole being.  These two services alone are amazing but combined can truly multiply the benefits.
