Let me guess.  You’re not going to be awesome to your body for the next 6 weeks.  I’m right there with you.  Family obligations and the stress they bring.  Holiday parties with not a vegetable in sight.  A few too many cocktails on New Year’s Eve.  Cold weather keeping you snuggled on the couch instead of walking through the park.  Really, I get it.  I’m challenging myself to go a whole month without eating out.  But I’m not starting until January ’cause I’m not stupid.

On the flip side, I know how crappy I felt last year around this time.  Sluggish.  Achey.  Tired.  Mildly grumpy.  And I don’t want to repeat that.  So I’m committing to do better than last year.  Even if that means I still eat too many Christmas cookies and there is more movie watching than I need.  I’m committing to regular exercise, more vegetables in my meals, and a little less alcohol.  And I’m also committing to regular bodywork.  Now, I know, it’s not fair.  Most of my aches and pains I can take care of myself, while watching a movie, which is awesome.  You, too, should be a Rolfer, and therefore, this lucky.  But still, there’s plenty I can’t take care of myself (or that I’m too lazy to take care of myself), and I need regular maintenance.  I get Rolfed about once a month with occasional cranio-sacral, acupuncture, and chiropractic sessions sprinkled into the mix whenever I can, because feeling good is important to me.

And now for the sales pitch:  May I suggest that you also keep up with whatever self-care schedule works for you, especially during this time of year when we tend to let everything slide?  I promise it’ll help those New Year’s resolutions seem more manageable.  But much more importantly, you’ll feel better, and that should be all the motivation you need.  This is your reminder that I’m offering Pay What You Want for all sessions until the end of the year.  And if you’re one of the lucky ones with a Health Savings Account or a Flexible Spending Account that expires at the end of the year, now would be be the time to use it, before you lose it (even if you use it somewhere other than my office).  I just want all of us to feel good, even through the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving and may there be a lot of light in your life through these dark days!

Yo.  Here’s how it goes.  I write blog posts.  You read blog posts.  I think I’m funny and educational.  Maybe you do, too.  Regardless, maybe you get bored with listening to me ramble on week after week.  And so, I thought, perhaps it might be nice for you to hear from other people once in a while.  Get a different perspective; learn something new.  Maybe I could learn something new, too!  So, I got out my special internet-comb and started combing through for people that you might want to hear from.  And I found some good ones, wouldn’t you know!  Soon we’ll be hearing from Stephanie, who’s a bodyworker in Philadelphia, and I can’t wait!  I’m trying to get some other magic-makers from other fields in here as well.

But I got to thinking, as I was struggling with my big, unwieldy internet-comb, as it kept getting tangled in blogs which haven’t been updated in two years, that maybe there was an easier way to find super-awesome-healer-folk.  ‘Cause you all know them.  Don’t cha?  I mean, who do you go to when your kid gets sick?  Or when that weird pain in your arm comes back?  Who do you send all your friends to?  You know, those special magic workers you love and respect?  I want those people to guest post ’cause I wanna hear what they have to say.  Don’t you?

So, here’s what you can do for me, if it’s not too much trouble.  Send me the names and the contact info for anyone you want to hear from.  If you feel like including a blurb about why you love them so much, awesome.  And think big here.  I’m happy to talk with surgeons, crystal bowl healers, and midwives; and like Stephanie, they don’t have to be local.  If you think it counts as healing, it counts.  I’m hoping to compile a list of people not only to contribute to the newsletters, but also for referrals, ’cause you don’t want me delivering your baby, or playing crystal bowls, or cutting you open, but I’d like to be able to suggest someone else to do those things for you, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Cool?  Cool.  And thanks, in advance, for your help!
