Psoas Muscle and Back Pain

Psoas Muscle and Back Pain

Have you ever experienced low back pain or spasms? What about sciatica or pain that travels down your leg? Sometimes, when people have pain in their back, it is a slam dunk diagnosis because there was a clear cause and effect. Other times, it is difficult to know what is causing the pain. Often, it is a sneak attack of the hip flexors.

The Yin & Yang of Recovery

The Yin & Yang of Recovery

Our recovery is an important part of our training that is often overlooked. It is where we integrate our experience, and where we replenish our system so we can rise to the next occasion with new vigor and depth. In our preparation, we build. In our execution, we push.

Sports Acupncture for Injury Prevention

Sports Acupncture for Injury Prevention

One of the most heartbreaking events to happen in an athlete’s world is injury! Athletes and active people prefer to continue through many, if not most, injuries because working out is so much more than a way to burn calories and lose weight! It is a physical, emotional and spiritual release. It is a way to find peace, ease and balance. It is a way to feel in control in an out of control world. Telling an active person that they need to take time off to recover is like cutting off their lifeline.

My Lineage of Strong Women

My Lineage of Strong Women

While challenging, I love the opportunity to share with my 8 year old daughter the beauty and power we have in our lineage of women. I am careful to choose my words when discussing this topic. I want her to know that being a woman means having strength at your core. To be a woman means to brave the unknown. To be a woman means to be a resourceful creator. I want her to know that our strength as women comes not from us individually, but from what we are together.
