Private Herbal Consults

$75

with Paula Kersch

Calendar Jul 1, 2022 at 12 pm, runs for 1 week

Discuss your wellness needs, goals and lifestyle choices to create a custom herbal profile just for you! First, identify your body's energetics and the best herbal applications for your body type.

Education and guidance along the way are part of the ongoing monthly service.

Next, we will use custom herbal profiles to create teas, infused oils, and skin care products and help you select herbs independently. Walk away with a guide of select herbs chosen for your body's healing.

Then, if you wish to continue with herbal services monthly, create a personalized program with ongoing herbal health support and education.

*Clients will receive a health questionnaire via email to be completed before their visit to make the most of the time during the consult.

Rebuilding Energy and Endurance at Any Age

$39

with Carole Freeman

Calendar Jul 20, 2022 at 12 pm, runs for 14 weeks

Breathe new life into your body. Literally!

Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy, and the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the breath. And not only your breath but the quality of your breathing pattern and function. Learn how you and your respiratory system can be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all of those cells that keep you moving. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts and ends with the strength of your respiratory system. No matter how long you train or how hard you work out when your breathing gives out - your body follows.

This prerecorded, on-demand 3-6 week class allows you to view course content where/when it is most convenient. In addition, you will have access to downloadable resources, exercises and activities.

Carole Freeman is a Respiratory Therapist and Breathing Specialist and holds a graduate degree in Health Sciences from Loma Linda University Medical Center. She focuses on the relatively new field of pulmonary medicine in recognizing and treating breathing disorders.

Surviving Stress - Live Online

$35

with Carole Freeman

Calendar Oct 12, 2022 at 5 pm, runs for 1 week

Moving Emotions From Depletion to Renewal

Everyone knows how to breathe and that if you stop breathing, you die. But have you ever learned how to breathe well for your health? Dysfunctional breathing is the #1 reason people are sick and tired, and 90% of people who suffer from chronic anxiety or stress have a breathing pattern disorder. The nervous system’s normal response to stress, anxiety, frustration, and fear all simulate fight or flight breathing patterns. If we are under chronic mental, emotional or physical stress, this unhealthy breathing pattern becomes our default. With successful practice, learn to breathe well for your health and feel less sick and tired.
