I’m turning 34! It’s not exciting at all, really, despite the exclamation point. 30 is exciting. 35 is exciting. Even 33 is exciting, for a nerd like me, since 3 is the square root of my favorite number and therefore, my second favorite number, so 33 is a fun number for me. (If you never want to talk to me again after I’ve outed myself as an extreme dweeb, I’ll understand.) Regardless, I can find nothing exciting about 34. But, it’s my birthday, and that provides excitement enough.

AND, for the 5th year running, for my birthday, you get a special deal on Rolfing! So, hopefully, you’re excited about my birthday, too. This year’s Pay What You Want Week will run from Monday, May 4th through Sunday, May 10th. In case you’re new to Pay What You Want Week (PWYWW), it’s exactly what it sounds like. You schedule a session. You come get a session. You pay what you want for said session.

This really is my favorite week of the year. It’s always so much fun to see old clients, meet new ones, and get presents all week! Flowers, and muffins, and acro-yoga classes, and paintings, oh my! So schedule away, my loves, and I’ll see you then!

Spring is here! Warmer weather, more daylight, and all kinds of flowers poking their brave heads above the ground. It’s all so juicy!

So, I just realized that I’m going to be in Chicago for my 5-year anniversary of graduating from the Rolf Institute as a real, live Certified Rolfer. Which is sad, because I wanted to do something special to celebrate. But, hold up, it’s not actually sad at all because it just means that I’m going to do that something special earlier. Hooray!

Dr. Ida Rolf (who came up with Rolfing, in case you didn’t know and thought we Rolfers just got together and picked the worst possible name for what we do) used to struggle with the question, “What is Rolfing?” I’m sure you can relate, if you’ve tried to explain it to anyone, ever. Ida used to say that Rolfing was education, and in that vein, I’d like to give out some scholarships to celebrate 5 years doing this work, but I need your help.

Here’s how this is going to work. During the week of April 6th through April 12th, if you want, you come in and get a session. Then, whoever you want to receive a scholarship comes in the following week, April 13th through the 20th, for free, as long as I’ve never seen them (as a client) before. So, if there’s that person in your life, be it a spouse, a child, a coworker, a friend, a parent, a neighbor, a lover, that you’ve been trying, desperately, to convince to come get Rolfed, this is your (and their) chance. You get a session, they get a session. Total cost: one session. I don’t even care if you two work it out and split the cost of the first session. Just how generous you want to be is up to you. But you need to come in that first week and give me the name of the person you’re gifting the scholarship session to for the second week. Capisci? Let’s educate (Rolf) the masses!

Okay, next order of business: Music. To all of you who sent me suggestions or brought me CDs, thank you so much! I finally have a new playlist and I’m so excited to share it with you next time you’re in. If you still have more suggestions, but never got around to letting me know, feel free to keep ‘em coming. It’s been such a joy being exposed to new music through you. Thank you!

Lastly, I wanna talk to all my Lafayette (and surrounding area) peeps. I left my practice in Lafayette a while back as I focused more on being in Denver and doing less driving in my life, and because of that, I no longer get to see some of you, which gives me a sad. Hopefully, you have found new and lovely and wonderful practitioners to take care of your bodywork needs. However, if you haven’t, I have fantastic news! My friend, Dave Sheldon, who I’ve mentioned before, is now practicing Rolfing and SourcePoint Therapy in Lafayette, and I promise you, he is lovely and wonderful (though not new, as he has more experience than I do, by far). And I just googled his office location and it’s a whopping 1.2 miles from my old office (or 4 minutes by car). Dave is my Rolfer, and I can give no higher praise than that, but he also works in a way that is remarkably similar to the way I work, so if you’re missing my particular brand of magic, Dave is as close as it gets, without the drive to Denver. So please, check him out if you’re so inclined.

That’s what I’ve got for you this time. Stay cool, my lovelies!
