Saluting Our Veterans: Never Give Up!

So often we are told “this is the way it is and you will just have to learn to live with it” whatever “it” may be. Do we give up and give in to the despair? Or do we find hope by seeing those things that often seemed impossible turn out to be very possible indeed. Perhaps they are right some of the time. But sometimes, opportunities for growth and change are there and we just need someone who believes that life can get better. Watch this powerful story that will change your day!

This Memorial Day weekend we honor those who have died in service for this country by honoring those who are still living with the wounds of war and military service. On Saturday, June 9th, we will offer manual therapy service to our wounded warriors for FREE! Please call us in advance to schedule an appointment for you or a loved one.

They have paid their dues in more ways than we can imagine. We ask only one thing of them: that they not lose their hope in themselves, in their families, in this country, in this world and most importantly in the infinite healing Love of our Creator.

May you come to know this healing love intimately and may it fill you so much that you can no longer contain it. May it spill forth into the world, touching everyone you encounter!

Having Foggy Memory? Don’t Forget to Deal With Stress

By Janet Martin

It is quite normal to forget where you have placed your keys or parked your car once in while. Everybody has dealt with such phenomena. However, if you keep on forgetting a lot of things, then you may need to see your doctor. Remember that even if you are getting older, it doesn’t mean that you should accept memory lapses and fogs as if they are inevitable age-related changes.

For so long, people were led to believe that difficulty in remembering things often are just symptoms of old age. Most of the time, however, fuzzy memory is actually caused by stress and anxiety. If you want to minimize or totally eliminate memory lapses, you should first alleviate stress or deal with what makes you feel anxious and tensed. Read the rest of this entry »
