Welcome and a Holiday Tip

Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog! I plan to post about twice a month or as needed if there is an announcement. I will also post the blog updates on my facebook page.

I’m currently offering a special on Reflexology/Energy Work sessions at my McKnight Road location — $10 off a 60 minute session. The regular price is $80, but through December 24, the price is $70. This applies to sessions for yourself or for gift certificates. If you’d like to purchase a gift certificate, please contact me and I will email you an invoice which you can pay online. I will then send the gift certificate to you or the recipient, whichever you prefer.

People often ask how I’m able to do animal communication and energy work without the pet or person being present. Location and distance are irrelevant regarding communication and energy work. It’s like flipping a light switch. You don’t see the electricity, but you see the light come on instantly. Energy work and communication work similarly.

I am now doing pet sessions at Journeys of Life in Shadyside a few times a month. Dates and times are posted on the Events page of my website. In December, I will be there on the 9th, 16th and 23rd from 1-5 PM. Please call Journeys at 412-681-8755 to schedule a session there. As always, I’m also available for in person sessions on McKnight Road or by phone.

I’m also offering my services in a new way — parties! Round up a few friends, and I will come to your home to do pet sessions, communication with deceased loved ones, or both. The person hosting the party receives his or her session for free. Sessions are about 20-30 minutes in length, depending on the number of clients. Please contact me to schedule a party or for more information.

Holiday Tip: In my many years as a personal trainer, one of the biggest complaints I’ve heard around the holidays is low back pain from hours of cooking, baking and decorating. It can leave you feeling like you’ve done a full day of yard work. Since you are spending so much time bending over, you need to move your body in the OPPOSITE direction. There are a few ways to do this. While standing, relax your knees and place your hands on the back of your hips just above your rear end. Gently lean back and hold for a few seconds. Repeat this a few times. You can also do the yoga poses cat-cow (on hands and knees, rounding back up to ceiling then arching back) and cobra stretch (face down on floor, hands under shoulder and gently arch upper body up without shrugging). Taking a moment to do these movements periodically as you do your work can help to save you from pain later. Soaking in an epsom salt bath is also very beneficial. Enjoy your holidays!
