Being a woman in today’s world is really tough. There are so many things that are expected of us and it is hard to find the support and love that we want and crave.
For years I was in a J.O.B. that was chosen for me by my mother. She always wanted me to be a doctor and it never felt right to me. However, she was my Mom so I did as she wished. Kind of. I did go to school in a pre-med program but, forever being the “practical” child and knowing that being a physician did not ring true for me, I took a program that led to being able to work in a clinical lab. For some reason, on my journey, I also decided that people weren’t my thing, so I found lab work perfect. I could follow my mother’s wishes and study medicine and not have to actually deal with the population.
For 30 years I worked in a blood bank and moved myself up the ranks by fitting into other people’s ideas of what I should be. I found the longer I stayed in the lab, the more angry, frustrated and tired I became. Eventually, all I wanted to do was sleep all the time to escape what I perceived was the misery of my life.
During this time, I learned a healing practice that was spiritual in nature, Reiki. One of my co-workers asked me if I would do Reiki on her one day when she had a headache. I had never heard of this and was not sure what she was asking of me, but she guided me to rest my hands on her head and I immediately felt tingling in my hands. She was as surprised as I when her headache went away almost immediately.
It felt amazing to know that I had helped someone’s headache in such a simple and non-invasive way and without the use of medication or intervention. I felt truly powerful.
This was the beginning of my education into alternative medicine.
After years of training in functional medicine and alternative therapies, I have built an incredible team of like-minded women who have the same vision that I do. Our goal is to treat the whole person through salt therapy, functional medicine, Trager, meditation and energy healing to help create a life of balance, relaxation, fun and community.
Through all my training, I have learned that diet and nutrition are important but so is the way that you choose to live your life.
What would it feel like to you to live a life where you feel confident, powerful and discover your true self? Amazing! Right?! And what if you could find that in a community of intelligent, strong and supportive females?
That journey starts by figuring out who YOU are and what YOU want. Start a journal, create a recording, or build a vision board that helps you to direct your life and focus on your desires and needs.
