The Lens and Aperture of Depression – Mind and Body

November 29, 2019

Depression is multi-faceted in how it affects our bodies and lives. It affects our mood, our cognition, our relationships, and our pain, and generally affects our desire to move and participate in our environment. While I think it is important to understand that sometimes depression is a normal reaction to a life challenge, it occurs […]

A Session With Dr. T—The Chiropractic Magician

January 16, 2019

Being a Yoga Instructor you’d probably assume I have a perfectly healthy and mobile body—and while that’s partly true, I’m also at great risk of injury due to popping in and out of poses to demo for students and going to my max for photo shoots (damn you Instagram)! The thing that I found frustrating […]

A User’s Manual for Your Brain

December 27, 2018

Moonshots rarely begin with brainstorming clever solutions. The kind of personal evolution we are seeking starts with the hard work of finding the right questions. And I believe the primary question to be; “What does it take to feel more capable?” While there are several legs on the stool that comprise our well-being which must […]

Innovative Masculinity

November 19, 2018

My biggest fears lie in how uncomfortable I am with not knowing enough. As I get older, I become slightly more comfortable with not knowing everything. The more that you navigate the world, the more that you learn to question things. But the brain doesn’t like uncertainty. It always goes back to the reference point […]

Brainfullness Experiment

October 24, 2018

All of us are looking for magic, with a culture that reinforces it. A partner, a degree, a job, a new stress management tool that will take us to a better place. Our brains are continuously being hacked by media and advertising, and every other external source that profits from our fear. In addition, we […]

‘Keep Calm and Go To Dr. T’

September 25, 2018

“Keep Calm and Go To Dr. T”. This phrase is actually how a client got referred to me. Your pain is complex, but the solutions shouldn’t be complicated. The health and wellness ecosystem is complicated—even for those of us who are practitioners within it. There are no factual statements; it’s not math. Everything in biology […]

Fatigue? Hack your Brain, Harness your Energy

March 02, 2018

Fatigued? Hack your Brain, Harness your Energy It is fairly easy to measure the fatigue we feel from the level of a particular task—there are physiological, metabolic measurements that can show us. But on the level of overall fatigue, it becomes more complicated and we are less equipped to judge for ourselves. There are five […]

Consuming Under Stress – Does Your Health Care Provider Match Your Expectations?

September 03, 2017

It’s Difficult to be a Consumer It is a confusing time to be a consumer. The volume of decisions, the range of options, and the access to information can create much angst and doubt. When this is further complicated by the fear in a health crisis and the choice is of a healthcare provider, there […]

I’m Not A Vending Machine. You Deserve More Than A Cheap Snack.

May 01, 2017

I would like to extend a sincere ‘thank you’ to all of the patients who have pushed me to be better and inspired me to look beyond. Yet this is challenging as we are at an interesting time in our history. With unprecedented resources and technology to access information we have become very self-reliant in […]
