I’ve been invited to share the backstory of my holistic coaching and healing practice. Before I was known for holistic pain management and teaching effective living skills, I was actually a well-known hydrologist. For a few years, I worked for the Army Corps of Engineers, on the Tucson (AZ) Urban Study. We were evaluating the possibilities for Federal participation for major projects in Tucson.
Unfortunately, during my hydrology/engineering days, at age 26, I was suddenly stricken with an intense burning condition, from head to toe. There was a great stiffness with it, and I began to lose flexibility in my hands. I went to the “finest arthritis doctor in the Southwest”, and he had no answers for me. (Thanks a lot!) Left to my own devices, I began talking with all the arthritics I could find, about what helped them. They said diet and exercise were the important things– two factors no one was discussing at that time, other than for figure control. It took me 8 years, but at age 33, using diet, exercise, and Oriental energy therapy, I noticed the condition was gone. By then, I was so interested in natural pain relief, that I could not imagine staying in engineering. So I took some therapy courses, gave 2 weeks notice, and left engineering.
I already had 2.8 degrees in sciences from well-known universities. Over the years, I became an expert in energy therapies, especially Jin Shin Jyutsu. That art looks like accupressure (with two c’s for accurate, not acu, meaning needle) and feels like your pain and stiffness are “melting”. I began writing articles (now over 600, free, and online) and books. I now give workshops on:
- energy therapies, meditation
- trading in your stress for energy
- dealing with difficult people and situations
- using words to create the life you want
- finding your Peace Within.
- A class at the Franciscan Renewal Center (retreat center in Scottsdale, AZ) even included a practicum in Walking Labyrinth Meditation. Today, in the wake of the pandemic, I coach/counsel some clients through Zoom, and I give energy healing sessions in my office. Classes are mainly on Zoom. Pain, stiffness, depression, frustration– people bring those to my office and leave them there.
In 2022, I renamed my practice “Healthy Happy Loving Life”, rather than “Healing Therapeutics.” When you feel healthy, you can be happier, and when you are happier, you can feel gratitude more easily. And when you have those qualities, you can really put your arms around your life and truly love it.
Today, my favorite studies are in neurobiology, the role of the vagus nerve in our health, and the role of EMFs (Electromagnetic Frequencies) in our ill health. Perhaps this month, I will write about some of that. Meanwhile, do you have any questions about holistic answers for pain and illness?
Try my recommendations, and that will be you, more and more Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
