Shutting down my practice and saying goodbye to clients I've known for years and years. It's a tough time. Mixed feelings of comfort versus new adventures.

Question: and what would therapists do with these saliva samples?
Comment by Stephen Jeffrey on July 14, 2011 at 10:57am

Dr Tiffany Field gave an excellent presentation at the recent world massage conference, in which she highlighted the ease of obtaining results via the taking of saliva samples (as against blood urine ). How's about we use some foundation money to develope some saliva sample kits and demo vids and start getting therapists actively engaged with taking samples from clients???

The touch research institute is struggling will it be allowed to go under.

EXPLORING CHAKRAS-July 23 & 24, 2011, Lafayette, La.

When our chakras (energy centers) are in balance, we function at a much higher rate of health and well being.  An exploration of the energy field will assist in learning about any imbalances that may contribute to problems in our lives and how we can return to a state of balance. This knowledge is valuable in understanding the mind, body connection with ourselves, our families and our clients. Aura photos will be taken during the workshop and information about what the colors mean for you will be available. An energetic technique using light touch will be learned during this class.
