The definition of health is simple "Every cell communicating clearly with every other cell". If every cell is communicating clearly with every other cell, none of the above symptoms occur. 

Mechanically, you are held erect by a precise system of muscles and ligaments opposing each other. Without that opposition, you would be a lump on the floor. Sprained ligaments/muscles are not able to perform correctly. As a result, their opposing muscles spasm, which continually pulls your bones and vertebrae out of alignment.

I have found that it takes about half of a forty-minute session to successfully restore soft-tissue sprains back to normal healthy function. I do that by deep tissue massage to the origin and insertion of the sprained muscles. In this way, I am able to restore muscles to normal healthy function.

My observation is that muscle and ligament sprains, no matter how long ago they occurred, are still there until someone physically works them out. The next step is realigning your misalignments and showing you simple habits that bring you into harmony with your elegant design.

I work with you to develop correct posture. As your posture improves, every cell communicates better through all fourteen powerful circulatory systems that run up and down your spine, and up and down your arms and legs. Correct posture is essential to your health and well-being. I also give you simple, easy to implement exercises that realign your spine every time you perform them. This is a core part of the healing regime taught in our office. We also teach you to breathe abdominally.

Learning to breathe from your lower abdomen is powerful medicine. Breathing abdominally gives you the courage your need to "live" your plans and splendid dreams. When you breathe shallow, courage fades into the background and fear steps forward. Then you are more aware of the obstacles than you are of the potentials of your life. In one study of (38) patients in cardiac intensive care, every one of them were chest breathers, which is the most inefficient way you can possibly breathe.


I utilize the "Five Elements" of classical Chinese physiology as a way to understand how the imbalances in how you think and deal with your feelings directly affect all of your bodily functions. My newly published book "Body Intelligence" shows you how simple it is to bring each of the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water into harmony. These simple changes immediately change your body physiology. Better health is the result. 

Most people exercise regularly, eat well and have tried a lot of different health protocols and stil have not reached the Promised Land of health they seek. I have sifted through well over two hundred health protocols, most of which yield only minimall returns on your investment. I have distilled down 7 simple habits that help you to live at the upper limits of your life. The pathway is simple. And, the farther you go, the simpler and easier it gets.
