Ayurvedic Spring Detox

The shift to springtime weather and energy has begun. Fickle, changing hot-and-cold days send mixed signals to the body. This natural weather flux demands more flexibility in the body, because the body senses the shift of seasons on a cellular level and begins a natural detox.

What I didn’t […]

I came across an academic journal article published in July of 2016*.  The article identified a unique study surveying 273 couples’ therapists on their theoretical orientation with IRT and if their beliefs, values, and intervention strategies are aligned with IRT.   Of those surveyed one hundred participants held […]
