March 2013 Newsletter

Tune-up Time?
First of all, I am wondering if any of you noticed that I didn't send a February newsletter?  In keeping with my theme of Simplifying in 2013, I've decided to send newsletters every other month.  This means that the next newsletter will come to you in May, prior to my second visit to The Kientalerhof to assist Michael Shea Ph.D. in a Craniosacral Therapy course entitled "Primary Respiration-How Bones Breathe"*.  Im very excited about this opportunity to return to this gorgeous, remote village in the Swiss Alps to assist with the course, learn, hike, eat lovingly prepared foods and restore myself!

Among other things that I did in February was to take my car in for a routine oil change and tire rotation.  Ended up with a new car!  Have you ever seen an online quiz that tells you what kind of car you are?  I discovered that I am a red Ferrari (though my budget was better suited for a sporty Honda Si coupe)!  

Like our cars, our bodies need just the right combination of air and fuel for maximum performance.  A clean-running circulation and filtration system is needed to keep things running smoothly.  Managing spent fuel and other waste by-products is vital to the function of both.  Your car mechanic, just like your therapist might recommend ongoing preventative maintenance to avoid bigger problems down the road.  The question is, how often?

As automotive technology improves, cars become more robust and service and maintenance intervals extend. Oil change intervals can stretch from 3,000 to more than 10,000 miles.  Even though medical technology continues to advance rapidly, our bodies don't "auto-magically" keep getting better.  Advances in medical science improve the outcomes of illness and injury, but don't build sturdier models requiring less service.  Too bad!

Many people don't know what their cars really can do when opened up on a country road or motor-speedway in terms of performance.  Similarly, many people don't fully realize the optimum functioning of their bodies.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy helps to organize patterns in the Fluid Body of the client through a slow pace of Primary Respiration.*
*The Long Tide, also referred to as Primary Respiration, is the pre-existing wellness template in the body.

Is it time to come in for a tune-up to slow your nervous system and nourish your tissues?
