[07/19/21]   Hi friends! I just wanted to let you know that I have the kind of strange problem of being completely booked and not being able to accept new clients at this time. If you or a friend are interested in receiving some therapeutic bodywork, let me know and I can refer you out to some incredible practitioners in the area

[12/09/20]   Hello friends! I just wanted to let you know that I am taking the next 5 weeks completely off. Not only due to the rate of COVID cases in Johnson County, but also some much-needed time off and some immune issues. That being said, starting mid-January, I'll be available distance Reiki/sound healing sessions. They are super cozy, and in the comfort of your own bed :) Sending all my love out to you, and please know how much I miss seeing your faces regularly! Have a safe and healthy holiday

Full Circle Wellness: A Check-In

Hi Friends! I am taking a quick 3 question survey of my clients (or those who would like to be). If you already received this in your inbox and filled it out, no worries! if you haven't, i'd greatly appreciate your feedback on my tentative reopening. THANK YOU!!

Study links fermented vegetable consumption to low COVID-19 mortality

This is fascinating (and unsurprising)...70% of your immune system lives in your gut...the more diverse gut flora, the overall healthier you are as a human being, and the more you an ward off the icky bugs. Common fermented foods here in the U.S. you can easily find at the grocery store are: yogurts, kefir, traditional saurkraut, miso, kimchi, and veggies/pickles.

PRO TIP (and if you'd like instructions on how to make your own, i'll find some!) but with all of the produce of the summer, it is SO EASY to make your own fermented veggies. if you have 1) a big jar 2) water that's been boiled 3) salt, you have everything you need to ferment your own within 24-48 hours. nature is so cool.

news-medical.net An intriguing new study by researchers in Europe suggests that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) mortality rates are likely to be lower in countries where diets are rich in fermented vegetables.

[05/21/20]   Dear clients. First of all, I miss you. Second, you might have heard the state is re-opening, and that includes massage therapists, if they feel comfortable in doing so. At this point, I do not. :(
We are taking steps to ensure our office has the right protocols for safety in place, but I myself will be starting a medicine in early June which will make me severly immuno-compromised/suppressed for at least a month, if not longer. I'm estimating sometime in mid-late July to be the earliest I'm contemplating a reopening. Please know that I appreciate you, and miss you, and when we might be able to see eachother again might be a bit different, I can't wait for that day.

[04/27/20]   As of today, the Governor of Iowa has said that massage studios like mine could (possibly) re-open mid-May. I honestly think that is too soon for Johnson county, but please know I'm keeping a very close eye on the news and our collective health and safety is my highest priority...will keep you updated! and I am sending you a huge *virtual* hug and hope you are well

Why Am I So Tired? - Leah Corder

I've asked myself this question regularly this past month. Good information that's validating, and helpful. At the end of the piece, there's an encouragement to find a 'word' to focus on. my word (so far) has been 'Surrender' but im also leaning to this idea of 'grace'.

parasolwellness.com     For the last two weeks I have heard one question more than any other. Whether clients, friends, or family members, over and over again I have heard asked some version of the same question: “why am I so tired?” This question is usually prefaced by the perceived lack of energy each person fe...

Flexible payment options are available, as I know how COVID is also affecting people's incomes

[03/21/20]   Dear loved ones: I’ve already received some requests for distance Reiki and Sound Healing sessions. As I just got back into the country last night, I’ll be diving deep into gearing up for distance work. I’m also thinking of offering some free sound healing meditations for groups on FB or Instagram live. ALSO: I’m going to be putting together some Reiki’d essential oil bath salts and detox clay masks for you guys. 1) I’d love your thoughts. 2) were all in this together. A portion of any of these future sales/projects will be going to first responders and/or food pantries in our local area. Thank you for your patience as I figure all this out. ❤️🙏🏼❤️

[03/16/20]   Dear dear friends and clients: Due to the first community-contracted COVID-19 case in Johnson county, I will be suspending all massages, at least through Mid-April, and possibly even longer (will see how the next few weeks play out). I am going into brainstorming mode, and might come up with some cool distance sessions (Reiki can be done long distance!) and some other ideas I've had cooking but haven't had the time to follow through for you. Please know, this breaks my heart. I love you all and your support has meant the world to me, and honestly it's pretty scary to close the doors for who-knows-how-long on a lot of levels. I know we are in this together, and that the love and support I've witnessed in Iowa City has been truly astounding. I'm sending (virtual) hugs to each and every one of you, and holding you close in my thoughts. We will get through this. In the mean time, I will use this page to promote some good ways to strengthen your immune system, that have helped me tremendously. Love you guys.


Dearest clients: COVID-19 has officially hit Iowa City as of this morning's news. Please use these song clips to help you along in your hand-washing regimen. :) I do ask that if you have any signs of any type of upper-respiratory infection, to reschedule with me (and I will do the same).

The CDC guidelines on hand washing say to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds - so we created these signs for our restrooms to help keep all of our guests healthy! Each clip is at least 20 seconds, and may vary to even longer depending on how dramatic your performance is 👏🏻🧼

UPDATE: Thank you all for sharing, we cannot believe how far this has reached! Many have asked for a downloadable version so we have uploaded it here as both a PDF and PNG: http://bit.ly/332ReHR - please feel free to use it and keep your communities singing and safe!

UPDATE 2 (3/21): Wow! We still cannot believe the response to this post! We have heard from so many of you that have printed this out and shared it at work, home, schools - we love to see it! Since posting this, the issues surrounding public health have significantly increased and caused us to close our doors until at least April 14th, effectively cancelling or postponing about a dozen events. If you enjoyed this post, or just want to support the arts - please take a minute to consider making a tax deductible donation to our mission and ensure we can continue to provide quality, accessible theater to our community: https://bit.ly/33zXFlX ...This post reached 3.4 MILLION people, can you imagine what we could do if each of you gave just a dime?

We know we aren't alone in this and our hearts go out to the thousands and thousands of theaters who are currently dark, as well as all performers, house staff and crew who are without work and without their passion of theater. We hope you will choose to support these places that bring you such joy by supporting them through this tough time. How? Ask to forego a refund or take a credit on your account for cancelled events, buy tickets to a future event, get a giftcard for a loved one, leave them a positive review on Google, send a kind note in their inbox or make a donation where possible if that is within your means.

Thank you all for supporting the arts and uplifting us with your sweet comments, we wish you all and your loved ones good health and happiness! Keep singing! 🎶

Carlson College of Massage Therapy - Massage College - Anamosa, IA (outside Cedar Rapids)

If you (or anyone you know) is thinking about massage school, hear this: I went to 2 schools in eastern Iowa (I joke that I have a masters degree in massage ;) ) but the first severely disappointed me. Carlson College took me in, helped me catch up to the rest of the students (i joined about 3-4 months into their next part time, year long program), and offered SUCH a strong foundation in anatomy, physiology, the business of massage, and so much more. also the campus is gorgeous!

They're gearing up for both full and part-time programs for next year, and if you (or that friend of yours) has any questions, just reach out to me.

Food as medicine... LOCALLY!! Amazing amazing project. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

🥦 This year’s $50,000 Community Impact Grant will go to help provide healthy and local meals to those suffering from chronic illnesses so they can get the nutrition they need.

🍅 The grant will support a collaborative effort among the Coralville Community Food Pantry, the North Liberty Community Pantry, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics Upstream Mobile Clinic, and the Johnson County Local Foods Coordinator to launch a Veggie Rx Pilot Program in Johnson County, Iowa.

🥬 The Veggie Rx program is designed to provide food insecure individuals facing chronic health conditions with routine access to locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables, individualized dietary guidance and engaging educational activities related to healthy food preparation and consumption.

🌶 Sundog Farm (Local Harvest CSA), Echollective Farm and Wild Woods Farm will be providing the fresh produce for participants.

🥕 We can’t wait to see the results of this new program and are proud to be a part of this effort towards a healthier, brighter future for those who need it most.
