Iris Graduates: Clinical Sports Massage

Iris Graduates: Clinical Sports Massage

Studying sports massage has been incredibly fulfilling. I have had the opportunity to work with talented mentors who have shared their knowledge and experiences, which in turn enhances mine!

The Lasting Change of Acupuncture

The Lasting Change of Acupuncture

I have never felt more aware of how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)/acupuncture can help optimize body function than when I was going through my own recovery and seeing the profound yet subtle changes that my body would make after each acupuncture session.

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.
