This Father’s Day, we put the spotlight on our own fathers. They’ve challenged us to be better people, helped us grow our careers, and encouraged us to take pride in what we do. Their words are as important now as they were then. Thank you, Dads.

It seems unreal that we have been closed for over three months. As I talk to colleagues and friends, although our quarantine realities may be different, the illusion of time and its warp is similar: some weeks fly, some weeks crawl.

By: Jordan Jackson, Client Care Coordinator These days, hopping into the sauna on a chilly day is one of the easiest forms of self-care I can give my body. All I have to do is sit. That’s it! Just sit in the sauna (which is kept at a cozy 140 degrees) for 20 or 40 […]

What got you into massage and energy work? As a LMT & IHC (integrative health coach), 22 years vegan, I’ve always given massages to my family. As young as six years old, I would rub my mom’s shoulders when she was stressed. I didn’t fully embrace my healing craft until after 911 in NYC. As […]
