COVID-19 Symbolism


COVID-19 Symbolism I am both a detail and big-picture person. The more upsetting the “now,” the more helpful it is to pull back and perceive from a greater distance. Deeper meaning is revealed in the long view. Here’s what I’m seeing so far. Coronavirus can be a clarifying influence for humanity if we will allow … Continue reading

Coronavirus and Massage Therapy


Coronavirus & Massage Therapy   Massage therapy as it’s typically practiced in the community is not currently safe due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So my practice is temporarily closed.

And picture a slow-motion carnival of the absurd and outrageous, a grainy side show culminating in a presidential election with breath-taking results.

Caregiver Crunch, Balance and Resilience


Caregiver Crunch Over the years of my practice I’ve heard many stories I would put in the category of “caregiver crunch.” Caregiver crunch is the over-tasked, over-scheduled, time-pressed, stressful life we experience when we simply have too much to do and can’t see a way around it. There is nothing on “the list” we feel … Continue reading
