Roundup: Wellness Inspiration For The Week

Posted on December 1, 2016

Here are some easy tips to help you bring yourself into balance:

Free Yoga Online

Don’t have time to make it to yoga class? I love the site Do Yoga With Me. It’s free (though you can give back and make a donation) and it has hundreds of classes to choose from, including 10-20 minute options for when you’re short on time.

Neck pain has been another thing high on the list of client issues lately. My friend and Thai Massage therapist Pam Herrick wrote this helpful post on how to find the best pillow to alleviate neck pain. If you’re ever in the Hudson Valley, go see her! (I personally love the Bucky pillows.)

EFT for Money Blocks

As most of you know by now, I’m a huge fan of EFT (otherwise known as tapping). This free e-book, 103 Disempowering Beliefs About Money and Success and How to Eliminate Them in Minutes” helps you clear money blocks and worries about your finances.

And here are some additional resources on Pinterest, including a quick reference guide.


I know, I know, I’m late to the party, but I’m finally starting to use Instagram.

I just discovered Overheard New York. One of the things I love about living in NYC—lots of crazy things to overhear. Humor and laughter are good for the soul, after all!

And on a completely different note:  National Geographic Travel for breathtaking inspiration.

Reduce Holiday Shopping Stress: Gift Certificates

Give the gift of balance and relaxation with a Reiki, Reflexology, and/or Hypnosis session or class gift certificate.

I’ll email you a Gift Certificate PDF and you can forward it to the recipient. If you prefer, I can mail you a hard copy gift certificate card with matching envelope, just give me your address or the address of the person you’d like me to send it to.

Less stress for you in terms of shopping, and you’re helping reduce stress for a loved one!


Self-Care Inspiration: 7 Ideas

Posted on October 21, 2016
Since helping people take better care of themselves is at the core of what I do, I thought I’d share what’s currently inspiring me in the hope that these ideas inspire you.
Self-Care Inspiration: 7 Ideas
What’s Inspiring Me Right Now:

  1. Being in nature: I spent the weekend visiting a friend on Block Island. It’s such a magical place and it felt like the last hurrah of summer. It was still warm enough to swim, with a hint of fall crispness at night. (Growing up in sunny Florida, I’m a wimp when it comes to cold water.) Walking on the beach and sitting on the sand watching the waves roll in is one of my all-time favorite things to do.
  2. Getting a session: I tried a janzu aqua therapy session in the big Salt Pond on Block Island. It felt deeply healing and definitely pushed me outside my comfort zone.
  3. Exercise: I took my first Bar class. (It connects me back to my ballet roots, and it’s a good, intense workout. Yes, I’m sore!)
  4. Learning something new: I’ve been studying Tarot for the past few months as a way to connect to my intuition. I love the morning ritual of drawing a couple cards for inspiration for the day ahead. I just bought this gorgeous new deck.
  5. Reading: I just bought Gaby Bernstein’s newest book, The Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear to Faith. I’ve talked about her books before (link here), and love her practical, simple, heart-centered tips and techniques to release blocks and help you find happiness and a clear sense of purpose.
6. Meditation: I’ve been using the free app The Insight Timer during my morning meditation. It has a lot of features I haven’t checked out yet (guided meditations, different saved settings, etc.) but in addition to the beautiful chime at the conclusion of my practice, it shows you how many people were meditating around the world at the same time. 3,500 other people meditating along with me? Inspiring!

7. Reiki: Giving myself daily Reiki each morning is the key component and foundation of my self care routine Learning Reiki is such an easy way to take better care of yourself, help you start meditating more regularly, and better deal with stress.

Do something inspiring this weekend! Sending you much love…

Spring Cleaning Tips for True Health & Balance

Posted on April 27, 2016

Spring cleaning tips for true health

As the warmer weather approaches and we shed our winter layers, it’s time to get excited about Spring Cleaning! Spring signifies the rebirth and renewal of nature, as well as an end to those slush puddles. While Spring Cleaning is often thought of as dusting your living space and scrubbing your fridge, we can reframe our expectations of this wonderful time of year.

Read below to discover simple spring cleaning tips for true health & balance.

Declutter, Organize, & Donate
Not only will getting rid of clutter in your closet and pantry renew your energy, it’s a great way to give back. Take a look at your closet – anything (gently used, of course) that you haven’t worn in the past year is fair game to donate. In your pantry, restock your shelves with kitchen staples, and stop by your local soup kitchen to donate any unexpired goods.

Reevaluate Your Goals
How have you been doing on your New Years Resolutions? Spring is a great time to revisit the commitments you made on January 1st. Grab a buddy and take that class, start that job hunt, or plan that trip you’ve been wanting to take. Make a mental note of the things that may have gotten in the way these past few months and get started!

If you’re having trouble overcoming a bad habit, letting go of a fear, or making a big life change, hypnosis can help.

Take Care of Your Body
Winter is the time for big sweaters, sweatpants, and blankets. Not only is fresh produce harder to come by in the winter, but the weather makes it harder for us to want to get up and out. Renew your energy by stocking your fridge with fresh, whole foods and getting outside to enjoy the warmer weather. Take the dog for a walk, do yoga in the park, or just read a book under a shady tree. (Here are some of my favorite books for transformation.)

Open the Windows
There’s nothing worse than a stuffy, dry living space. Open your windows and let the fresh spring air reinvigorate your senses. Grab some fresh flowers from outside and bring the season in.

Get a Reiki Session (or hypnosis or reflexology)
Spring is a great time to get centered. Schedule a session to invigorate your mental energy, stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal, and transition into this new season.

Learn Something New
If you’re looking for an empowering, easy way to take care of yourself, the next Reiki I class starts Tuesday, May 3rd. Read more about what you’ll discover in this Beginner’s Guide to Reiki Training.

Take Your Time
Finally, be gentle with yourself and allow yourself the space to enjoy this transformative time of year. Surround yourself with positive people, experiences, and goals to boost your creative energy.
