Humans welcome.

It’s ok… I know you’ve been binge watching garbage on Netflix and going to bed late, even though you know you’re tired. I know you sometimes eat fast food because you’re starving and it feels like the clock is running against you. Not only that, the effort in getting out of your car to get something healthier seems like too much effort; even when you’re craving healthier. I know that sometimes you feel crotchety and you yell at the … Read More

Be well this summer.

We are big on learning from nature about how to be well. Part of this is taking note of what each season, uniquely, has to offer us in learning to live our lives with more ease. Here we are in summer; the season of the heart. For some of us, it’s this time of year that we look forward to – we can’t wait for it. It’s the best time of the year. For others … Read More

It’s OK to rest.

For me 2015 and 2016 have been full-on lessons in remembering my mortality. It’s easy sometimes to forget how precious health is and to take it for granted or alternately it’s easy to operate in a state of stress (aka in our sympathetic nervous system which equals fight or flight) and not really be present to how healthy we feel or not, but to keep going anyway. These few years have been a keen reminder … Read More

Guest Blog: I am not my flaws.

Have you ever felt resentment or anger towards someone who hurt you in a relationship? If you have, you’re not alone. I have too. Let me tell you the story of how I got through it. In 2012, I met the most amazing guy on match.com. We’ll call him David. He was tall, dark and handsome, a Texas native, proud veteran, boisterous, and he made me laugh until it hurts. That’s what got me, the … Read More

5 big lessons in entrepreneurship (aka what we learned during our first year in business)

    It’s April 2016 and we are officially celebrating an entire year of Third Space Wellness having an open location. For a few years we searched the 20910 high and low, we had late night meetings around a kitchen table, we taught classes on the go, and saw clients in a one-room office. Then it happened, the stars aligned and everything fell into place. We opened the doors to a beautiful center. It hasn’t … Read More

Top ten reasons to work with a nutritionist

Food food food. Everyone is always talking about food…what to eat, what to never eat. Our relationships with food can be quite complex. And the relationship between how healthy we feel and the food we are eating (or not eating) can be equally as complex. If you are feeling like food or your health is a yucky and loaded topic then working with a nutritionist could be just the thing to help lighten the load … Read More

Six super easy cheap ways to get better sleep

Ok so I have an infant, hence, lately I am reminded about how precious good sleep is. This little babe is teaching me a ton more about life-hacks for better sleep than I could have possibly imagined. Tons of people want more or better (or both) sleep. In the treatment room, one of the things Joy and I hear all the time is symptoms of poor sleep, fatigue and a gazillion other things that happen … Read More

Choosing myself

I picked up the phone and with shaky hands dialed the phone number I had dialed daily, sometimes hourly, for years. I knew I was calling with a purpose, to simply close the chapter. She answered and I calmly said the words I was compelled to speak out loud, “I would have done anything for you, you told incredible lies that caused severe damage, we both know the truth.”   I hung up and felt … Read More
