As a healer I find it important to practice what I preach. I tell my clients drink water, take rest, nourish your soul... I made a promise to myself that whatever I tell my clients, at least one of those things, I have to do for myself that day. I don't always succeed in my endeavor but it has helped me to become more and more aware of the need to nourish myself and follow my own guidance. So, let's nourish ourselves....

And then there are the cravings..

Oh, la!

A woman may crave to be near water, or be belly down, her face in the earth, smelling the wild smell. She might have to drive into the wind. She may have to plant something, pull things out of the ground or put them into the ground. She may have to knead and bake, rapt in dough up to her elbows.
She may have to trek into the hills, leaping from rock to rock trying out her voice against the mountain. She may need hours of starry nights where the stars are like face powder spilt on a black marble floor. She may feel she will die if she doesn’t dance naked in a thunderstorm, sit in perfect silence, return home ink-stained, paint-stained, tear-stained, moon-stained.

● If I get dementia, I want my friends and family to embrace my reality. If I think my spouse is still alive, or if I think we’re visiting my parents for dinner, let me believe those things. I’ll be much happier for it.
● If I get dementia, don’t argue with me about what is true for me versus what is true for you.
● If I get dementia, and I am not sure who you are, do not take it personally. My timeline is confusing to me.
● If I get dementia, and can no longer use utensils, do not start feeding me. Instead, switch me to a finger-food diet, and see if I can still feed myself.
● If I get dementia, and I am sad or anxious, hold my hand and listen. Do not tell me that my feelings are unfounded.
● If I get dementia, I don’t want to be treated like a child. Talk to me like the adult that I am.
● If I get dementia, I still want to enjoy the things that I’ve always enjoyed. Help me find a way to exercise, read, and visit with friends.
● If I get dementia, ask me to tell you a story from my past.
● If I get dementia, and I become agitated, take the time to figure out what is bothering me.
● If I get dementia, treat me the way that you would want to be treated.
● If I get dementia, make sure that there are plenty of snacks for me in the house. Even now if I don’t eat I get angry, and if I have dementia, I may have trouble explaining what I need.
● If I get dementia, don’t talk about me as if I’m not in the room.
● If I get dementia, don’t feel guilty if you cannot care for me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s not your fault, and you’ve done your best. Find someone who can help you, or choose a great new place for me to live.
● If I get dementia, and I live in a dementia care community, please visit me often.
● If I get dementia, don’t act frustrated if I mix up names, events, or places. Take a deep breath. It’s not my fault.
● If I get dementia, make sure I always have my favorite music playing within earshot.
● If I get dementia, and I like to pick up items and carry them around, help me return those items to their original place.
● If I get dementia, don’t exclude me from parties and family gatherings.
● If I get dementia, know that I still like receiving hugs or handshakes.
● If I get dementia, remember that I am still the person you know and love.”

ᴄᴏᴘʏ ᴀɴᴅ ᴘᴀsᴛᴇ in Honor of someone you know or knew who has dementia. In Honor of all those I know and love and lost who are fighting Dementia/Alzheimer’s.

Thank you 😘❤

One of my favorite Teachers.  "Save the Soil"!  This is cool and important.

One of my favorite Teachers. "Save the Soil"! This is cool and important.

The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has warned that continued soil degradation at the current pace could plunge the world into a severe food crisis in less than 50 years, as millions of acres of cultivable land becomes desertified and incapable of yielding crops. Save Soil is a global movement launched by Sadhguru to save soil from extinction, and bring the necessary policies to address the catastrophic issue facing humanity.

Join an exclusive meeting with Sadhguru LIVE on February 13th - 8:30 am ET / 7:30 am CT / 5:30 am PT.

To attend this meeting, sign up to be an Earth Buddy where you can learn how 10 minutes of daily volunteering can make this goal a global reality.

You may also notice that you cannot think and be aware of your breathing. Conscious breathing stops your mind." - Eckhart Tolle

I am not saying that these statements are true but I am aware of navel treatment in Chinese Medicine. Quite interesting and something I'd love to get more familiar with....

Very interesting read! Wow I never knew this 😐😯
(This is a Repost)

The Navel:

Did you know why to put different oils in and on the belly button?

Our Navel (Nabhi), is an amazing gift that our Creator has given us. According to science, the first part created after conception is the navel. After it is created, it joins the mother's placenta through the umbilical cord.

Our Navel is surely an amazing thing! All our veins are connected to our navel, which makes it the focal point of our body. The belly button is life itself!

The "Pechoti" is behind the navel, which has more than 72,000 veins. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our body is equal to double the circumference of the earth.

We knew that to lower the temperature to the babies, we put a cotton swab with alcohol in the navel, now we know that with oil, it's better.

Applying oil in the navel heals the dryness of the eyes, poor view, the pancreas, the heels, and chapped lips, keeps the face bright, the hair healthier, for knee pain, the chills, lethargy, pain in the joints and dry skin.
Apply Neem Oil in your belly button - to get rid of stubborn pimples and acne
Apply Almond Oil in your belly button- to help achieve a glowing face
Apply Mustard Oil in your belly button - to get rid of dry, chapped lips. Will also keep your intestines moving to remove harmful bacteria but keep the good. Actually works as a mild detox.
Apply olive oil or coconut oil - to improve your fertility

Keep alcohol dipped cotton on your belly button - to cure a cold, flu and a running nose. When a baby has stomach pain, we put a few drops directly in the navel and we give the massage around the naval a few minutes, the pain is cured. Oil works the same way.

Keep brandy-soaked cotton ball on your belly button - to ease menstrual pain and cramps

Sesame Oil is used for all types of joint pains. It is also known to strengthen bones. Many parents use in their children every night at bedtime.

Use an equal amount of Mustard Oil And Ginger Oil For Upset Stomach, Bloating, Nausea and digestive problems.

Using Warm Ghee improves blood flow to the nervous system and also enhances the immunity system.

💚my brain andheart divorceda decade agoover who wasto blame abouthow big of a messI have becomeeventually,they couldn't ...

my brain and
heart divorced

a decade ago

over who was
to blame about
how big of a mess
I have become

they couldn't be
in the same room
with each other

now my head and heart
share custody of me

I stay with my brain
during the week

and my heart
gets me on weekends

they never speak to one another

- instead, they give me
the same note to pass
to each other every week

and their notes they
send to one another always
says the same thing:

"This is all your fault"

on Sundays
my heart complains
about how my
head has let me down
in the past

and on Wednesday
my head lists all
of the times my
heart has screwed
things up for me
in the future

they blame each
other for the
state of my life

there's been a lot
of yelling - and crying


lately, I've been
spending a lot of
time with my gut

who serves as my
unofficial therapist

most nights, I sneak out of the
window in my ribcage

and slide down my spine
and collapse on my
gut's plush leather chair
that's always open for me

~ and I just sit sit sit sit
until the sun comes up

last evening,
my gut asked me
if I was having a hard
time being caught
between my heart
and my head

I nodded

I said I didn't know
if I could live with
either of them anymore

"my heart is always sad about
something that happened yesterday
while my head is always worried
about something that may happen tomorrow,"
I lamented

my gut squeezed my hand

"I just can't live with
my mistakes of the past
or my anxiety about the future,"
I sighed

my gut smiled and said:

"in that case,
you should
go stay with your
lungs for a while,"

I was confused
- the look on my face gave it away

"if you are exhausted about
your heart's obsession with
the fixed past and your mind's focus
on the uncertain future

your lungs are the perfect place for you

there is no yesterday in your lungs
there is no tomorrow there either

there is only now
there is only inhale
there is only exhale
there is only this moment

there is only breath

and in that breath
you can rest while your
heart and head work
their relationship out."

this morning,
while my brain
was busy reading
tea leaves

and while my
heart was staring
at old photographs

I packed a little
bag and walked
to the door of
my lungs

before I could even knock
she opened the door
with a smile and as
a gust of air embraced me
she said

"what took you so long?"

~ John Roedel (

My Story

Claudia is a Registered Massage Therapist in the State of Colorado and joyfully offers healing Massage, Bodywork, Graston Technique, Fire-Cupping, Reiki, Shiatsu, Acupressure, SoundHealing, private Yoga sessions as well as the whole body approach of MyoFascialRelease. She is currently trained in Myofascial Release I and II, which includes Theory and Evaluation, Techniques to treat Cranial Trauma, Headache, TMJ Problems, Sinus Problems, Intra Oral Work, Cervical Issues and the Lower and Upper extremities, to name a few. She is trained in Myofascial Unwinding which works on releasing subconscious holding patterns, depressing pain and increasing range of motion. Claudia has also been trained to address the Fascial Pelvic areas which include but are not limited to the Pelvic Floor, Hip, Erector Spinae, Sacro-iliac Joint, Lubar Area, Psoas, Sacrum and Quadratus Lumborum.

A little bit about Myofascial Release (MFR) as taught by John F. Barnes: MFR techniques address the totality of the body through focusing on one’s fascia. The fascial system is a whole-body system covering, interpenetrating and controlling every structure, system and cell of our body. Simply said, the fascial system is a 3 dimensional web that connects us head to toe, each muscle, bone, organ, and cell. The fascial system with it’s fluid content is also the main transportion for the nutrition we ingest, the fluid we drink and the oxygen we breath. A typical massage generally addresses only the muscular collagenous and elastic fibers of the body whereas MFR delves deeper into the fascia to release traumas and restore balance.

To find out more about my treatments, talk about your ailments, create a healt and wellness plan and/or to set up an appointment, please e-mail me at: [email protected] or simply call 575-779-8040.
