Essential Oils for you!

I recently had the pleasure to drive up to Rivendell, a beautiful organic lavender farm on the road to Ojai, and stocked up on a variety of exquisite essential oils.

Her question points to the fascinating interplay between the energetic and physical, and this is how I have come to understand it (this may evolve, […]

What is the best time to receive a massage?

As I get more busy (thank you everyone!), I realize that many of my clients want to book a massage in the evening. While this does make some sense for people who work regular office hours (though who would expect their dentist to see them after 7pm?), one does not need to receive a massage […]

What is Barefoot Deep Tissue?
