Adventures in Women’s Wellness: 7 Things To know About Holistic Health
I’m fascinated with how we can feel better and empower our lives, communities, and the world, particularly through holistic health and women’s wellness.
Since I was young, I’ve had a life-long passion for holistic living that has led me on many adventures of healing, learning, discovering, and researching.
Over the past twenty years, I’ve worked professionally in the healing arts as a practitioner, teacher, writer, speaker, and mentor in holistic health, women’s wellness, and entrepreneurship.
My path includes working as a massage therapist, craniosacral therapist, birth doula, postpartum doula, childbirth educator, women’s health teacher, doula and massage trainer, online course creator, and holistic business coach, plus hoopdancer and chai brewer!
I’ve been called to the path of supporting women through pregnancy, birth, and all the cycles of life.
I’ve also studied and practiced a multiple of bodywork modalities, the plant-powered ways of herbalism and whole food nutrition, and a variety of movement arts, as well as ancient healing practices and modern scientific research.
Along the way I’ve become a mother of three sons, presently a toddler, a homeschooler, and a college student.
This has deeply imprinted me with the vital importance of uplifting the wellbeing of our children from pregnancy through young adulthood.
It’s also essential for us to proactively support our whole health through life so that we can feel our best, have the energy to do all that we desire, and can care for ourselves optimally, as well as our loved ones.
Wellness is the state of feeling good in body, mind, and spirit.
Wellness is often achieved through conscious intention and actions that support the goal of good health.
Good health is our natural state as humans.
We have incredible bodies that are intrinsically designed to desire to achieve homeostasis, the state of being in balance.
Yet, good health is also dependent upon and directly related to our lifestyle and daily actions through nutrition, fitness, environment, relationships, family, home, work, sleep, and self-care practices.
When people feel good, they are happier, have better relationships, enjoy more time with their children, are more productive at work, and can be of service to uplifting the world today.
