Don't miss The Body Electric Summit October 7-13, free and online!

Your body is more than a set of biochemical interactions. Even your cellular processes are ruled by quantum physics! Join the Body Electric Summit and learn to see your body as ENERGY. What if your body was more than a set of biochemical interactions, and a participant in ENERGY? #BodyElectricSummit


Frequency Specific Microcurrent gives results that amaze my clients and even me! The following is a direct quote from a recent email. The client came in for sciatica!

"I've been amazed at the results after seeing you last Friday. I got really tired after the appointment, yet didn't hurt or anything. Slept well and woke up Saturday feeling better physically than I had I a long time.

Beyond that, I have been astounded how much better emotionally I've felt. I'm happier, more excited about the future and taking action!! (Not as depressed, not as easy to slip back into past traumas, not carrying shame.) How delightful is that!! (And if any of those feelings come back a little, I've been able to slip away quickly!)"

Curious how FSM might benefit you? Call us at 512-710-9939 or book your first session online. 06/15/2019

I use several great therapeutic lights or "cold lasers" in my practice. One of them pictured here is actually FDA approved to treat hand and wrist pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome as well as minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, and muscle spasm.

The FDA recognizes the ability of this device to promote muscle relaxation and increase local blood circulation, but I think the actions of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) at the cellular level is even more interesting.

Studies have shown that lights at specific strengths and wavelengths can be absorbed into the body where they help the body's natural defense and repair mechanisms. By limiting inflammation and improving tissue repair, LLLT relieves pain, reduces damage and loss of function, and leads to stronger healed tissues. Clinical studies have shown LLLT leads to:

• Increased cell metabolism (increased production of ATP or cellular energy)
• Increased cell membrane potential (which allows the cell to take up nutrients and expel waste)
• Increased collagen production
• Enhanced nerve regeneration
• Increased tissue and bone repair
• Increased lymphatic response
• Increased enzyme response
• Increased vasodilation (therefore better bloodflow and possibly reducing hypertension)
• Increased microcirculation (improving bloodflow and oxygenation of tissues)
• Reduced inflammatory duration
• Reduced pain
• Reduced swelling

I first learned about the healing power of LLLT during my acupuncture studies in grad school. My instructor was the first to introduce me to the idea that what the Chinese understood as Qi/Chi, a life-force energy that flows through the body, is actually a measurable form of energy that can be affected in numerous ways. We know from physics that energy is not created or destroyed, it is just converted, and our cells can convert light energy into usable energy in the body. I've used lasers and LEDs ever since for acupuncture treatments, pain reduction, and tissue healing. It even makes your skin look great! 11/06/2018

A woman came to me once with her neck completely frozen with pain. Although she had herniated discs diagnosed by MRI, she said to me, "I know this sounds crazy, but I swear this happened when I got Invisalign". I spent her session gently moving the bones of her skull and it completely relieved her neck and shoulder pain.

Thanks to her insight, I frequently use craniosacral therapy to relieve neck, shoulder, and elbow pain associated with invisible braces and other dental appliances. Could your teeth or jaw be causing your discomfort?


After his first experience with the Myokinesthetic System, one of my clients texted,

"Hey there. Just an FYI. Don't know what has done it, but I'm wandering shopping isles and have "noticed" - I'm just kind of gliding along with a super smooth stride. It feels different and really good. Bravo."

It's not just for pain relief. MYK has improved motion, flexibility, and coordination for many people.


I had the opportunity to use the Myokinesthetic System treatment for Morton's neuroma yesterday. After a few minutes of gentle muscle stimulation, my client had complete relief from the neuroma and greatly reduced pain from plantar fasciitis in the other foot! I love how this system stimulates the nervous system, resets posture, and lets the body heal!


One of my favorite patient encounters of all time was with a one month old infant. He was having trouble feeding due to a high palate and refusal to open his mouth. Using craniosacral, it only took a few gentle touches to completely change the way his jaw and mouth were working. A month later, I had a follow up appointment with a well-fed, well-rested, smiling and happy baby!


The new website should be up in the next few weeks, in the meantime, the scheduling button is functional! Visit to book your appointment.

In a recent study popularized by the media, high omega-3 levels were shown with high risk of prostate cancer. The study concluded that fish oil supplements should be considered only with these risks in mind.

I believe this study is flawed in its design and reasoning. The conclusions were based on serum levels of omega-3 (which is unreliable) and not based on actual fish consumption or fish oil supplements. The value of omega-3s cannot be denied, and they are very useful for many conditions as well as your overall health.

My advice: DO NOT stop your omega-3 supplement based on this study.

If the focus of your care is an impairment or dysfunction as described, then it is not really care for health bu...
