Sometimes the world makes me so sad.
Today is one of those days.
Why are we so awful to each other?  Why are people afraid, based on the color of their skin?  The shape of their genitals?  The people they love?  Why don’t we take care of our own?  Why don’t we teach conflict transformation in first grade?  Why do we pay football stars millions and midwives pennies?  Why do we live in isolation?  Why don’t we learn to be human?  To be ourselves?  To listen to our gut instincts and the earth and each other?

Sometimes I get so tired.
Today is one of those days.
Tired of concrete and asphalt.  Tired of beige and white and more beige.  Tired of fluorescent lighting and corporate ladders and not having health insurance.  Tired of artificial…flavoring and coloring and chocolate and plants.  Tired of mass produced and every highway exit looking like the last one.  Tired of looking up the weather instead of looking outside.  Tired of not knowing my neighbors.

Sometimes the world mows me down, bowls me over, and completely uproots me with its wonder and beauty.
Today is one of those days.
Cool, quiet mornings.  Surprise meetings with friends.  Chatting with someone across the ocean.  Breakfast in bed.  Kind words from a stranger.  A garden walk with an excited pup.  A purring cat in my lap.  Thunderstorms in the middle of the heat.

Sometimes it’s too much.
Sometimes it’s just enough.
Today is one of those days.

Okay, I know it’s not blog/newsletter day, but I didn’t want to wait ’til Tuesday, so here it is. Sorry about overloading your inbox this week.

I’ve been playing around with the idea of changing up my schedule for a couple of reasons. I always thought that I really needed two days off in a row. In every other job I’ve had, that first day off was a kind of stare-at-the-wall-and-do-nothing day and the second day was for all the things you couldn’t get done during the week, like laundry and grocery shopping and maybe a picnic if I was lucky. So, when I started my Rolfing practice I made sure to build in two days off in a row. Hooray for respecting my own needs! But the thing is, I really like Rolfing. Like, a lot. Like, more than pretty much anything else I do. Well, maybe I like eating more, but with eating I quickly reach the point where the pleasure is traded for pain, and well, then it’s not fun anymore. I certainly don’t need two days off in a row to eat. And since I like Rolfing so much, I miss it on those days I have off. Which means that I’ve been playing around with the idea of switching it all up. See, my goal was to see 6 clients a day, 4 days a week (and get an extra special 3rd day off!). But now, I’d like to try to see 4 clients a day, 6 days a week, just to see how I like it. As I said, I’ve been playing around with the idea. Will I love it? Will I hate it? No way to know, really, until I try it.

It’s tricky, though, to try such a thing, ’cause I share my office with the lovely and talented Tracy. And I can’t just switch my schedule up willy-nilly without making Tracy rightfully annoyed and frustrated. So, playing with the idea is all that I’ve done, until now. See, Tracy’s going out of town for the whole month of June to teach and work and see friends and ride a motorcycle and such. Therefore, the office is mine-all-mine for 30 days or so. Which means I can play with my schedule without risking pissing off one of my favorite bodywork trade buddies and long time office mate. Hooray!!

Here’s what that means for you: I’m open on Fridays during June. What!? I’m seeing clients from 10am to 4:30pm Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, in Denver. I’m seeing clients from 2:30pm to 9pm Mondays and Sundays, in Denver. And as usual, I’m seeing clients from 1:30 to 8pm on Tuesdays in Lafayette. The online scheduler that I use is all set up for this, so you don’t have to remember which times go with which days. Just schedule like you always do and you’ll notice different options available to you. Yay! Once again, this if for June only, to give it a whirl. Things will go back to normal for July, when Tracy’s back in town. Depending on how this little experiment goes, I’ll think about making these changes permanent, but I might really miss those two days off in a row. We’ll just have to play with it and see. So, wanna play?

I’m back in the States from the incredibly lovely France as of yesterday and feeling pretty good, thanks to Jake’s acupressure tips to avoid jet lag.  Jake, my whole family says thank you.  However, my brain’s still a tiny bit foggy.  So instead of writing a possibly rambling, possibly nonsensical article about carpal tunnel syndrome, today, I give you a video.  Last summer, my friend Alisha interviewed me and this is the result.  I know, it’s a bit long.  But if you watch to the end, you get to see me dancing around my house like a goof, so there’s something to look forward to.

I hope you enjoy it, but regardless of your reactions, I’d love to hear about them.  Please feel free to post your comments here on the blog!  Thanks and take care!

Practical notes for clients:

Last chance for Chicago Rolfing.  I’ve got two appointments available tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2:30 and 4:00.  On Wednesday, I have an 11:30 opening.  If you want one of them, let me know.

I fly back to Denver on Wednesday night, but my first available appointment is Saturday at 11:30.  Then, on Sunday is another Demo Day!  So let your friends and family know they can try a 30-minute teaser session of Rolfing for just $10.  New clients only, please.

Just in case you didn’t know, the next Demo Day is tomorrow.  And if you don’t know what Demo Day is, let me break it down for you.  30 minute trial sessions.  $10.  At my Denver office at 662 Grant St., on the second floor.  New clients only.  Happens once a month (I’ve decided to keep them around, so no worries).  That’s all there is to it.  New clients can schedule with me via phone at 303-261-2568, or via email at

This particular Demo Day is almost all full.   The earliest time I have available is 4:30 in the afternoon, if that gives you any indication.  So, if you have any friends or family who want to get in, tell ‘em to get on it.  And, as usual, if you know someone who’s ready for a full length session, you can always grab them a referral card when you’re in the office so they can get half off their first visit.

Send those hurtin’ people my way so they can get to enjoying this beautiful weather!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  I’ve said it before.  I’ll say it a million times.  I have the best clients in the world.  Really.  The Best.  And you’re one of them!  I am so, so, so grateful for the opportunity to know you and to work with you.  And, for the opportunity to rub it in my Rolfer friends’ faces that I have better clients than them.  Pretty grateful for that.  Not gonna lie.

The thing is, I love Rolfing and SourcePoint Therapy so much, that I’d be doing it on stray dogs in the street if I didn’t have any clients.   I do it because I love it.  Because I feel like I was made to do this work.  When I finally found this stuff, it was like the clouds parted, and the sun was streaming down, and the angels in heaven started singing and playing their cute little harps.  I just knew this was it.  It was the first time I’d ever thought I could do one thing for the rest of my life without getting bored.  And so far, so good.  I have no plans to retire.  Ever.  I never want to stop.  I do it for love, just like Sara Bareilles.

But it helps to have clients.  While Rolfing my own hands and feet and stray dogs is great (not really), I prefer to have clients to work with.  And being blessed with the most amazingest, awesomest clients in the world doesn’t hurt, either.  It’s just that I learn so much from you, every time we work together.  My understanding of this work, the human body, energy systems, emotions, and myself deepens with every session.  So thank you, thank you, for providing me with such a gift.  You truly are amazing.  One of my mentors in Rolfing school once said, “you don’t have to like your clients, but you do have to love them.”  And lucky me, I get to do both, without even trying!  You are wonderful!  And it’s such a joy, such a delight, to work with you.  I look forward to seeing you every time you come in!!  I get to wake up excited to go to “work,” if you can even call it that!

I love you.  Thanks for making that so easy to do.


Also, this:

Demo Day (in Lafayette) is today!  And Demo Day (in Denver) is tomorrow!  Thank you, Colorado peeps, for all your help in getting the word out to make them successful!

The next appointments I have available in Chicago are on Tuesday, March 27th, and Monday through Wednesday, April 9th through 11th.  Let me know if you want one!
