Massage Therapy School

I’m done!  Yippee!  Just completed the 1000 hours of therapeutic massage school.  What a ride doing it in six months–anatomy, myology, physiology, pathology, swedish, treatments, shiatsu, sports, and business.  The brain cells were able to turn on full time and get me through it with a 95 average to boot.  (However, it took a village–thanks to all who helped).   And, yes, this does represent a shift to work more with people and less with animals.  However, whole family health is always the goal including the pets and even the house!

I’ve joinged the team at Empire Therapeutic Massage Center under Barbara Boehly, LMT (with a provisional license). 

Got pain?

Got depression?

Got digestion issues?

Got a chronic disease?

Feel stuck?

Need a break?


Then get a therapeutic massage and find out what energy work, massage, and body management can do for you.


“Try it, you’ll like it” mini sessions available for the month of July, 2010.    Call for details.


Looking forward to working with you.  As always, Love, Light, and Laughter to you and yours.   /jean


Ready for Hospice

I have now completed all the necessities to volunteer for Visiting Nurse Services, Hospice.  The animals have taught me it will be an honor to help people in their transition from form.  And I’m sure I will learn lots!

More Acupressure Education

Just got back from the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute in Colorado where I took some continuing education for acupressure.  Tui Na is a technique of working the acupressure points, trigger points, and meridians.  I expected it to be another small notch up in ability to balance and unblock, but it went way beyond that and proved to be a very powerful tool!   Want to see how it can help you and your pets health?  Give me a call.
I also took the Equine Pathology Class (also at Tallgrass) from a very knowledgeable vet that has married allopathic medicine with acupuncture and holistic methods.  He had great information in how to use them both together as well as additional information about equine diseases. 

Nutrition – Where it’s at!

In today’s world, we tend to forget the importance of nutrition.  Why is that, anyway?  Without it we die — usually slowly over time with degenerative diseases.   That’s why I took the CNHP nutrition class  with Elaine Newkirk last weekend…to get the facts straight so I could better help my clients.   It was fabulous!  There is so much we can learn about what we need just by paying attention to the messages of the body.   Did you know that pain on the top of your shoulder or dyslexia may indicate a B12 vitamin deficiency?  Or roving pain may idicate a calcium defidiency?  Or that cold feet may mean you’re not absorbing protein?  I’ve developed a brand new chart that will help in determining which foods are best for you.  Check out Nutrition Basics, on the Education Blog.     Make nutrition and digestion a priority…give me a call for a nutrition assessment.

Reiki Tummo III Class

I completed the Reiki Tummo III Class in April.   It’s a heart oriented energy that works with love frequencies.  For me it feels softer and at the same time more powerful than the standard reiki energy.  I’ve been using it a lot and love it.  It even helped the rabbit my cat caught this morning.

Trip to Ecuador

Just got back from a great trip to Ecuador for training on Essential Oils and our health. Received much information on hormone imbalances, sympathetic/parasympathetic responses, cortisol levels, depression, different ways of using the oils for optimum results, and lots more. Keep watching here for more posts as I make my notes understandable to others (:-). See the Classes category for my notes on hormones and their affect on fatigue, weight gain and depression.

As Always,

Love, Light, and Laughter
