Tai Chi for Pregnancy with Frances Phelps

Tai Chi for Pregnancy: A Tool for Wellness and Self-Care, a Guest Post by Frances Phelps

I fell in love with Tai Chi during my first class. I became addicted to the art and was in class at 7:30am four days a week. I learned so much about my body, energy flow, and even spirituality in those morning classes. While I have not been in a regular class now for many years, I still practice Standing Qi Gong, a qi gong standing form, and an old Daoist practice called shaking and breathing. My holistic minded friend Frances Phelps has written a lovely blog post that I want to share with you. She has been an advanced…

No More Secrets Blog Tour with Joanne Guidoccio

  A Starting Point When I retired in 2008, I made self-care one of my priorities. My life needed a major overhaul in this area, and now I had the time and space to make the necessary changes.

EFT And Memory Reconsolidation for Physical Illness

As a DCEP – diplomate in Energy Psychology – I love reading articles about the expanding scope of this dynamic healing method. For years now we’ve known that energy psychology is very beneficial for anxiety, phobias, fears, anger, depression, trauma, and other emotional life issues. But slowly, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and other energy psychology methods are drifting into the treatment of illnesses and diseases that have an emotional root. I personally believe that if you dig deep enough, every illness has an emotional root. Because of that belief, I’m thrilled to post an article by Larry Burke, an North…
