What do I provide?
There's so much information out there nowadays about this exercise is king or this diet is the only diet people should do, and you don't have to look very far to find someone saying the exact opposite with equal credentials. What I provide is not personal training, this is not a miracle diet, this is long term, sustainable health creation to get you independent as quickly as possible, based on your unique situation.
We work together to get all of the factors right for YOU. No two people get the same program. I'm so passionate about this work because I believe that just like how no system in the body works alone, no system gets sick alone, no system heals alone, people are the same way, we can't work alone and we can't heal alone. Why do I work the way that I do? I deeply value 1-on-1 relationships, especially when it comes to health-CARE, because this has been shown over and over again to be the best way to achieve real, lasting results for people who have been struggling.
The average American spends almost 11 hours per week in their car. The value of this vehicle depreciates over the course of its life, performing regular maintenance at service intervals is common sense and often there are parts that need replacing over the long haul, for which we're willing to pay hundreds or thousands for the parts that need to be replaced. With these repairs we are not given any idea of how to understand future problems or handle them ourselves.
What about our bodies?
The average American spends 168 hours per week in their body. The value of this body appreciates over the course of its life thanks to accrued wisdom that can be shared with future generations. However, we treat our cars and bodies differently, often ignoring regular maintenance and waiting for the rattles to get so bad we have to elect for wildly expensive drugs and surgeries. With a common sense holistic approach we can reduce or eliminate the need for drugs and surgeries. Working with me will not only give you the jump start and tune up you need but provide you with the understanding of your body's needs, and how to handle future issues on your own. Just like with our vehicles, when we perform regular maintenance we can often reduce or eliminate the need for the more expensive repairs. Clients who implement the CHEK system report reducing the need for doctors visits and other health related bills.
What do my clients have to say?
"I definitely feel lighter & more energetic, & I'm sleeping especially soundly! I spent about 3 hours in the garden today and didn't feel nearly as creaky as usual. I will recommend you to others." - Anne H.
"This is amazing! I don't have to clench everything when I walk. I haven't felt this good in years!" "Oh my gosh! I was so relaxed, the evening was amazing! My breath is more expansive and I'm able to use that to reduce my stress. I can't thank you enough for your work, you have an amazing gift. Like I said, for the first time in a long time I feel taken care of." - Patricia C.
