Are you rich?
Not necessarily in money. You can also be rich in health, friends, love, creativity, happiness. How much it takes one person to be, or feel, rich isn't going to be the same for another and we may feel envious of someone we perceive to be richer than us.
Maybe the question to ask is: Do you deserve to be rich (healthy, loved, creative, etc.) Of course we do. But do we truly believe that?

On a deeper level, we often harbor conflicting beliefs from our past that become embedded in our psyche. This puts us in direct conflict with one of the Universal Laws. The Law of Abundance states there is an unlimited Source of everything we need or could ever want.
Being open to receiving the Universe's abundance is key. Conchita Russo has tools to help you get "unstuck" from unproductive patterns of thinking and old belief systems. Read how she became an Access Consciousness® Facilitator and what Bars® can do for you.

Anahata, the fourth chakra, is the heart chakra, our source of love and connection. Just in time for Valentine's Day, Lety Murphy is presenting a Heart Chakra Healing workshop designed to foster self-love and appreciation. In a second workshop, she'll offer a tea tasting event. Read about both of them here.

Jenna Dallman, DC, is offering FREE chiropractic consultations this month. Give her a call and find out how she can help you resolve any health problems you may have. Don't forget, she's an acupuncturist too. Acupuncture is a respected and ancient practice that brings the body back into balance by unblocking chi or energy.

workshop Access Your Consciousness through Bars®
Our reality starts in our minds. What you think, how you feel, your  beliefs and attitudes attracts what shows up in your life. Access Consciousness® is a set of pragmatic and dynamic tools and processes designed to facilitate more consciousness for everyone, empowering you to create the life you truly desire.

That's what intrigued Conchita Russo in 2014 when she heard a radio program while living in Southern California. The host of the Aware Show was interviewing Dr. Dain Heer, one of the creators of Access Consciousness®.

According to Gary Douglas, Heer's co-creator, "Consciousness is the ability to be present in your life in every moment, without judgment of you or anyone else. It is the ability to receive everything, reject nothing, and create everything you desire in life - greater than what you currently have, and more than what you can imagine."  

Within a few months of hearing the program, Conchita booked her first Bars® session. She was so impressed that within a few months of her first session she became a Bars® Facilitator (provider and teacher).

The Bars® are 32 points on the head which, when lightly touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn't allow you to receive. These points store all the thoughts, beliefs, emotions and considerations you have stored over a lifetime.

"The Bars® are where the electromagnetic charges of neurological synapses are stored, creating a pattern of how we act and operate," says Conchita. "Science tells us that our body's cell shape becomes elliptical when impacted by feelings and emotions, which is the first step towards disease. When we run the Bars®, the electromagnetic charge is released, letting go of the feelings and emotions that keep us stuck and the cells resume their spherical shape, thereby preventing disease."

In addition to basic Bars® sessions, Conchita offers Molecular Terminal Valence Sloughing System, an overall body immune system stimulant and Trifold Sequencing, used to clear shock and trauma from the body.
"Trifold Sequencing can be very effective for a physical complaint when the cause of the pain is emotional trauma."

Conchita and her husband, Dan, grew up in Southern California and moved to Godfrey in August 2015 when Dan took a job with a national trucking company. Now Conchita is bringing Bars® and Access Consciousness® to the River Bend area.

"Having your Bars® run and using the tools from Access Consciousness® expands the possibilities in your life, by changing your consciousness."

Conchita provides the following services: 
** Bars® Session - assists in disease prevention (30, 60 or 90 minute sessions)..............................................................................$1/min.
** Bars® Class - 8 hour class for anyone (Massage Therapists earn 8 CEUs)...................................................$300 1st time; $150 repeat

  chiro FREE Chiropractic Consultations in February

Are you bothered by a chronic pain? Maybe you lifted something heavy and felt a twinge in your lower back and now wonder if you pulled something.

Jenna Dallman, DC, is offering a FREE consultation and exam for new patients this month. Dr. Dallman will take a history of the problem and, depending on what it is, she will:
  • measure your range of motion 
  • observe your gait and stance 
  • assess your muscle tone and strength
Then, based on the information presented, Dr. Dallman will discuss a course of action to get you back to wellness. This could mean a diagnostic test such as an X-ray or an adjustment of the spine.

Call Dr. Dallman at 608-289-1217 to schedule your consultation. 

These muscles are key players in stabilizing the abdomen and spine.
A well-developed core does more than give us that "6-pack abs" look.

A strong core improves our balance and helps us hold postures longer so we can enjoy their full benefits. Off the mat, a stronger core equates to better functional fitness, helping us with daily tasks such as picking up a toddler or moving a piece of furniture.

In this workshop, you'll learn:
  • the core muscles and where are they located in the body
  • how they interact with each other and with the rest of our muscles
  • how strengthening them benefits us
We'll do body awareness exercises and, of course, asanas.
