Podcast – Wellness Unlocked: Sleep: it's an art and a science

Podcast – Wellness Unlocked: Sleep: it's an art and a scienceSleep, snooze, schluff (what, Yiddish?!) – Whatever you like to call bedtime, this is an episode all about sleep.

We’re talking about healthy sleep in this episode – what healthy sleep is, how to begin achieving it, and some commonly overlooked sleep breakdowns. We’re going to cover alarm clocks and your snooze button, electromagnetic disturbances, and the importance of clean sheets (the truth really comes out here!). And what about dealing with sleep when you have a partner in your bed? We have some interesting things to say about that. Then there’s happiness, dreams, creativity, food, the amount of sleep, and oh so much more!

When Pain is a Gift

When Pain is a GiftPain killer. Pain relief. Pain in the arse. This is our dialogue around pain. Does it have to be this way?

You have 100% chance of contracting pain in your lifetime. The question is what’s your m.o. when it happens. How do you handle pain? Do you wince, cry, yell, stiffen up, push through it, work it out?

Pain is a messenger. Biologically, it’s a process in which nerve endings are firing messages to your brain saying HELLO!! HI! Hi! ME! ME! Here! NOW! Squirrel! In my brain! And often, the message includes a big serving of common sense. What message is your pain sending you?

More of what people are saying about us
“I had open heart surgery over 30 years ago and it wasn’t until I was an adult and studying meditation that I noticed my breath didn’t seem to move through my chest smoothly. There were emotions that I struggled with as well… giving and receiving love and feeling secure with myself… My acupuncturist, Joy Andrews, suggested a scar treatment….  It has been an amazing spiritual experience! Breath became smooth and easy. Words like open heart, full, and complete came to mind. No pits or peaks in mood… My body still feels the needles and I will sleep well tonight as I remember my purpose here is to love and that is all.” ~ Ally
“Health care providers with a healing presence! Rachel has been my acupuncturist for over a year and I feel incredibly held and cared for in my sessions. She is a gifted practitioner who goes above and beyond for her clients. Since starting treatments, my sinus, allergy and menstrual issues have all but completely disappeared. If ever they start to resurface or I feel off, I just go to Rachel and she and the needles work their magic! She has also been instrumental in bringing to my attention my body’s wisdom and I more attuned to it as a result.”  ~ Tia (on
“As a crazy scientist who works 10 to 12 hours a day, I realized that swimming and walking the dogs was not providing enough balance to keep me sane.  I discovered the Body Flow class, a blend of yoga, tai chi, and Pilates, taught by Sam Dublin.  After a few sessions, I quickly learned to appreciate Sam’s in-depth knowledge, customer-oriented teaching style, and gentle way of encouragement and support.  Her approach to instructing a class that is composed of a wide range of students’ skills and ages is all-inclusive, yet highly effective.  I love the class and hope more weekly sessions will be added that fit my busy schedule.” ~ Franziska
