Out of office July 30-Aug 12; TMJ Relief brochures

I’m taking a vacation, going to New Mexico to (1) get out of Austin in the August heat, (2) serve as a teaching assistant at a Nightwalking workshop in Taos, and (3) further explore Texas’ neighboring state, including checking out Roswell, camping at Ghost Ranch, soaking at Ojo Caliente, TAing a Nightwalking workshop while camping at Taos and further exploring that beautiful area, spending a few days in Santa Fe (Meow Wolf and 10,000 Waves are on my agenda), camping at Chaco Canyon, and stopping in Truth or Consequences and Fort Davis on my way back to Austin.

I will be available for sessions on Tuesday, August 13, and Wednesday, August 14. Then I will serve as a teaching assistant for the Upledger Institute’s Craniosacral Therapy 1 class in Austin, August 15-18 so I’ll be closed Thursday and Friday of that week.

I’ll be back in the office on Tuesday, August 20, with no other absences, other than holidays, planned until December. This will be a great uninterrupted opportunity to schedule a TMJ Relief package of weekly sessions.

My new TMJ brochures, created post-TMJ Mastery training in Canada in June, are completed and ready for distribution to dentist offices. If you’d like your dentist to carry them, please let me know.

Change in office hours

My commitments to working with clients, teaching, writing, learning, and living a balanced life have grown. 

I am changing my office hours for advanced integrative bodywork to Tuesday through Friday. You will not be able to book sessions online outside my regular days and hours.

If you need to meet outside my regular hours (earlier than 10 or later than 6 on weekdays or on a Saturday), please contact me via the Contact page on this website, text, email, or phone (leave a VM please) so we can discuss.

Thank you in advance for understanding.

Season’s greetings and my holiday hours

I hope you’re enjoying the season. On one hand, there’s the pull of busy-ness — shopping and buying gifts, attending parties, travel, gathering with family and friends — and in contrast, becoming introspective as the days grow short and nights long — to reflect on the past year and examine your intentions for the new year, to stay in bed with a good book and a cup of tea on a cold winter’s day, to hibernate.

I hope you find the perfect balance for you. What is your light amidst the darkness?

Every year I pick an area of my life for special attention. In 2015, I spent the year learning new skills in Lauterstein-Conway’s Advanced Program for massage therapists. I spent 2016 integrating those skills into my practice as well as starting my biomechanical craniosacral therapy training with the Upledger Institute and continuing my Zero Balancing training.

In 2017, my focus was improving my skill with craniosacral biodynamics, serving as a teaching assistant and practicing a lot. 2018 has been focused on improving my business skills through networking and working with a business coach, as well as truly becoming an “advanced integrative bodyworker”.

And it’s not like the focus of past years is complete. Those choices continue to influence my practice.

I have a couple of things in mind so far to focus on during 2019: honing my writing skills and working on “right relationship,” however that shows up.

What would you like to say goodbye to when 2018 turns into 2019? What is your intention for the coming year?

I’m not going to Big Bend or taking a vipassana course this year. Instead, I’ll be around and available. I’ll be closed Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve because they fall on Mondays, and I take Mondays off.

My office will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 25, Christmas Day, and Tuesday, Jan 1, New Year’s Day. I’ll be open as usual Wednesday through Saturday, Dec. 26-29, and reopen on Wednesday, January 2.

I hope you celebrate your life and your health and your community.

 

Shorter office hours this week

I’ll be out of the office on Friday and Saturday this week — I’m participating in a night walking retreat at the Canyon of the Eagles Friday through Sunday. (I’ve done it before, so will miss the first day. There’s still room if you’re interested in (1) something different, (2) something relaxing, (3) removing yourself from the hustle and bustle, (4) learning a lifelong skill that you can use to relieve anxiety, (5) nature, trees, woods, water, dark skies, the beginning of the Geminid meteor shower,

I have openings on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and in addition to everything else, I am offering $25 off on my Heavenly Head Massage. It’s the antidote for stress that brings relaxation like you wouldn’t believe! That discount applies to gift certificates too!

Happy Thanksgiving!
