On The impending New year...
2019 is well on it's way, and with every happy new year comes the barrage of New Years Resolution pressure.
It seems to be the norm to create boring arbitrary non-specific goals like: lose weight (ugh), save money, declutter, start running (again), apply for jobs, just because, well, 'tis the season!
I'm not here for it.
What I am here for, however, is to see you create goals that align with who YOU are, and what YOU desire in this life.
Goals that light you up instead of drag you down.
Goals that are FUN to pursue, where the journey is as wonderful as the destination.
Goals where you can learn, and grow, and flourish in more than just one direction.
If you would like to explore what it would feel like to begin this new year with fully committed, connected, and enlivening support around making the changes to create the lifestyle you've always wanted to create for yourself, to learn the mindsets, structures, tools and rituals necessary to make living your MOST desired life a journey that feels inspired and indulgent, with a sense of EASE, and FUN...

"I never get sick."
Is probably one of the most frequent lies I tell myself as an adult (along with "diet starts tomorrow" and "I'm never drinking again").
By day, I am the office manager of a very busy and very germ-y elementary school, and people big and small tend to drop like flies at various times throughout the year.
Be it Strep Throat, Pinkeye, Flu, Barfnado...something is always going around. I am likely jinxing myself by typing this, but so far this year, and ALL of last year, I've been able to avoid ALL OF IT!
Now, to be honest I've had whispers of malaise here and there, but I activate super defense mode on all fronts, and have so far been successful at keeping the sick at bay*.
When I feel a little rough or a creeping ill coming on, I utilize the following remedies to make sure I don't fall along with my comrades:
Here is the recipe for my Go-To-Never-Get-Sick-But-When-I-Do-I-Make-This-Soup soup:
Cayenne Pepper or Hot Chili Oil
Shitake mushrooms - Fresh or Dried, but you get bonus brothiness if reconstituted from dried
Garlic - All of it
Bonus veggies as craved - Your body knows what it needs:
Soak the Bonito and Kombu in a pot of water heated to low, for about 30 minutes, then strain out the solids. At the same time, rehydrate your mushrooms in a separate bowl or pot (I use a tea kettle to speed the process along with hot water).
Combine the bonito broth with the mushrooms and broth in a large stock pot.
In a frying pan heat up some coconut oil, then saute your celery, onion, and garlic.
Combine everything in the stock pot and simmer on medium low. Take out a portion of the hot water and carefully wisk in about a tablespoon of miso, then add back to the soup, taking care not to boil.
Add your wakame and your bonus veggies and simmer until everything is cooked.
Serve hot, topped with sesame oil, scallions, and cayenne pepper/chili oil to taste.

Update to the schedule, I'm giving Sunday appointments a test run!
It's a very busy time of year, so I wanted to make sure you had every possible opportunity to schedule in your self care as we dive deeper into winter.
Hope to see you soon!

Every month I have been running a special for a different community of people.
Instead of offering a specified discount, throughout the month of November, I had been collecting $11 of each Massage, Gift Card, and Coaching Package purchase to support those affected by the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue. These funds will be donated to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh – Fund for Victims of Terror.
Note! This collection is being extended through the end of 2018.
