Love was once considered a highly spiritual emotion. Some sages believed it to be a form of giving that should be extended to society at large, as well as intimates.

Eater Sunday 2013 is also Cesar Chavez’s birthday. The Californian farm-worker-human-rights activist suffered from low back pain. After the assassination of Robert Kennedy and the continued stressors of the struggle for humanity-based policies, Cesar was hospitalized for twenty days with severe low back pain and suffered for months with no known cause.

A new year is a great time to get focused on you and your health. My focus here is to help my clients help themselves by informing them of basic cornerstones to body function (inside and out). I have found that many of my clients are not aware of, and do not incorporate, [...]
Pilates and Chiropractic care are a winning combination!

Basically, this group used research to help formulate an incredible program of [...]
