Are You Stressing Yourself Out?

Posted by Arja on November 22 in Holistic Health

Anger flares up.  Maybe it’s a blind rage that makes you feel out of control, or maybe you find yourself lashing out at people, whether you know them or not.  No matter who you are, it’s natural for anger to get the better of you once in awhile.  If, however, you find yourself reacting to everything that gets in your way, even the little things, your overall health and wellness may be suffering as a result.

Whole Health Care

Posted by Arja on September 16 in Holistic Health

Who is on your health care team?  Taking care of your “whole” self should involve more than just an annual physical from your doctor, and getting your teeth cleaned every six months.  In the past 5 years I’ve come to realize that health and wellness involves supporting all of your body and all of its systems.  As I continue to learn and grow as a practitioner, so does my team of healthcare professionals.

Tune-Up, Renew, or Re-Commit to Your Fitness Goals!

Posted by Arja on February 4 in Holistic Health

When I design a program for a client I always include exercise recommendations, no matter what their health and wellness goals may be.  Everybody needs to move their body, and if your goals happen to be fat loss, then I can guarantee you that you won’t achieve long-term success without including exercise in some way or another.  Exercise gives us more energy, helps us sleep better, and makes us stronger and less prone to injury.  With this in mind, I’ve teamed up with Justine Cappel from Twenty Toes Fitness to offer you a fantastic promotion this month!  Tune-Up, Renew, or Re-Commit to your fitness goals!  Justine was kind enough to drop by and offer her spin on how to realistically incorporate regular exercise into your routine.
