Essential Oils I use
I have used Young Living Essential Oils for the better part of two decades, however, recently switched a majority of what I use to Simply Earth oils. Super oils, super company!! You can read a little more about that here.
The majority of what I use: Simply Earth
I still carry some of these: Young Living
Lotions and Gels
I use Biotone Gel, which has Apricot Oil, Sesame Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil Ester, Vitamin E, Hypoallergenic, Unscented and Paraben Free.
I also love Twelve Corners Liquid Radiance. This is made here locally in Franklin, TN by Jim Callaway. Visit his website, he has a wealth of information to share and many good products.

Reiki is a Japanese word that means universal life energy. This is a gentle hands-on method of healing, which taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China and Prana in India.
If you have never had Reiki, I would urge you to try it. If you have and are looking for someone and if you find yourself in Costa Rica, I would highly recommend Elizabeth Gensler. I have received many Reiki sessions over my life and all I can say is I was blown away on so many levels. Our session's healing was long lasting and stayed with me for weeks. I would be happy to share my Reiki experience as well as my stay at Paraiso De Miguel. Please feel free to contact me.

I started my journey with The School of Natural Healing during Christmas of 2010. The best gift I have given myself. I have learned a great deal about how the body really works and how we can help ourselves. To be our own health and wellness advocates. By utilizing what nature has given us as tools for prevention and strength. I recommend this program to everyone. Probably one of the best things you could do for yourself, your family and your friends.

Over my years in Nashville, I have seen quite a few dentists. I am so thankful to have finally found a home for my dental health in Downtown Dental. As you have guessed, I love to align and partner with those that have a passion for what they do as well as look at things in a holistic way. It's not just about teeth here. It's about the whole you, how you sleep, walk and your structural alignment. And though a visit to the dentist always brings a little fear, fear none here. They welcome you fully and have a special way of putting you at peace.
