The Root of ALL Illness
Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.
Western medicine is based on the premise that fixing symptoms is good enough. A compartmentalized and pharmaceutical approach to health highjacks us from conscious living and authentic seeking. For both vibrant physical and mental health our bodies and our thinking/feeling need to be well-nourished and not entrapped by the collective/normalized way of life.  It's suggested the root of illness is based in the confusion of our own truth with the collective mindset.  Dr. Kumar shows us a path that allows us to choose complete health by living consciously.

The Edge Where Change Happens
Boris Matthews, PhD, LCSW

A good therapist will unsettle us enough to move us out of our stuck places. It's up to us to stay in that uncomfortable emotional zone so better ways for dealing with our problems can emerge.  "I'd like to be different" doesn't mean much if we cannot face the short-term discomfort that's necessary to transform.  Read more to learn about working at that edge. 

Massage and Cupping

If you haven't received the benefit of a good, therapeutic massage recently, you're really missing out.  Now is the time to schedule yourself for a massage and consider adding "cupping" to the treatment.  Remember 2016 and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps? People were asking what were those red spots on his back?...evidence of massage cupping therapy used to help him recover from the strain of his athletic event. The attached link includes some of the best descriptions of the cupping technique and its amazing benefits when part of the massage therapy session. Read more and watch the video.
We All are Broken, We All are Whole

Each of us carries burdens from our childhood.  This is true even for those of us who feel our childhood was happy and uneventful.  As children, we are not able to process events and situations with the understanding and knowledge of an adult.  This led us to adopt behaviors and beliefs that helped us survive in the moment or that we simply felt were a good idea at the time.  Some of us have had significant traumas, either emotional and/or physical, and some of us have suffered from abuse. May this poem help you not feel alone and know that healing can occur.  My desire for each of you is that you come to a place of freedom from past hurts. The hurts can remain to a greater or lesser degree, but their power to affect how we choose not to love parts of ourselves can be released.  I encourage you to reach out to your doctor or one of our practitioners and explore your possibilities for release. If you can just ask, you will be surprised at what will come to you.  Read more...

Meditate for Relaxation or Self-Realization (Part 1)
Eric Ehrke, LCSW, LMFT
