The Bull of The Magic Bullet

Culturally, we are sold the idea that this “One Thing” promises to perform the following magic:

  • Save You!
  • Change Your Life!
  • Magically Fix All Your Problems!
  • Irresistible Sexiness!
  • Other Marketing Lingo!

It’s all bull.

We have these imperfect-awesome-weird-asymmetrical-amazing bodies and things will twinge & twang. I encourage you to find tools that work for YOU. Invest in YOUR health and well-being. This is not about a mythical magic bullet. This is about creating YOUR toolkit. Who’s on YOUR team? What does healthy and strong look like for YOU?

I also get caught up in this bull (what’s up instagram ads) but I’m learning to stay in the moment, take a breath (or 12) and carry on with the resources in my own toolkit. To assist in your quest, here are my Toolkit VIRPs – Very Important Practitioners & Resources:

The Spine Shop – Dr. Vince & Dr. Mike. No appointments, walk in, buy a package. Solid, simple chiro care.

East Nashville Acupuncture – Roll up your comfy pants, settle into a recliner, and take a nap. Sliding scale at $15-35 per session.

This REALLY WONDERFUL acupressure mat. ($$$) SO SIMPLE. Or this one. ($)

Brian Wingate – My former instructor at Natural Health Institute and my friend. He is a gift to Nashville. 

Jo Justian – Jo is an Advanced Structural Integration Practitioner, dear friend, & mentor. Absolutely stoked to study with her and to receive a whole lot of hours of one-on-one specialized training in the Structural Integration 10-series.

Rachel Mathenia Yoga – Rachel is a fellow anatomy nerd and gifted Iyengar instructor. Iyengar training alongside Rolfing or Structural Integration bodywork has changed how I work and move. I am grateful for her and the places where she teaches! Steadfast & True Yoga and 12 South Yoga. Check them out.

My New Best Friends:

Live Free Chiroplus – Bizarre, chronic health problems? Dr. Crystal uses a biofeedback tool called a Resonator along with Applied Kinesiology & Chiropractic methods. After 14 months, I am exponentially stronger & healthier under her care. She looks for the root of the problem, past the physical symptoms right to cellular sources, whether emotional, spiritual, or physical. Her husband partners with her! Paul is an exercise physiologist & movement specialist. 

City & Sea Living – This CBD oil blend has been helpful for both me & my dog! There’s a lot of bull info out there about CBD oil, so ask a lot of questions & try samples! Here is a great resource local to Nashville – LabCanna! I like their TenneCBD Formula Black.

Bruce the Reflexologist at Howard’s Vitamin Store – Your $35 for 30 minutes will reward you with 20+ years of experience offering resources to fix what ails you. I want everyone to experience how amazing he is. I am so excited when I meet someone with an extraordinary gift.

And then there’s me! Regular bodywork is not magic. Might feel like it though!!!  Contact me asap to get in before the end of the year – I’d love to see you!
