Life should be simple. Don't overcomplicate things.
WHAT TYPE OF CLIENTS DO YOU WORK WITH?
I work with a diverse range of clients which includes men, women, corporate executives, young professionals, retirees, professional athletes, professional couch potatoes, and overweight individuals. I focus on working with those with autism, ADHD and the aging population. Each is tailored to the individual client. I have had great success working with people from all walks of life!
WILL YOU WORK WITH MY YOUNG CHILD?
Whole Body Balancing LLC works with all ages, from newborns all the way to end of life. For clients under the age of 18, written consent of the client’s parent or legal guardian is required before providing massage or bodywork services.
For clients under the age of 16, the client’s parent or legal guardian needs to be in the room while the services are provided.
DO THERAPEUTIC BODYWORK AND HEALTH COACHING WORK?
Your entire body needs attention - physical and mental. Therapeutic bodywork helps address the physical body; health coaching helps address physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances.
Don't you want personal attention to help you be your best?
WHAT IF I HAVE NO SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUES? WILL I STILL BENEFIT FROM YOUR PROGRAMS?
Yes! Health Coaches often work with clients who are generally healthy. They too can benefit from health coaching as they may not practice the nutrition and lifestyle habits that ensure long-term health and vitality. Everyone starts the program by filling out a Health History form so we can pinpoint any areas, obvious or not, where better health & lifestyle choices can be made.
WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
A Health Coach is a professional guide & mentor who empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health and supports them in making sustainable lifestyle choices. Health Coaches do not prescribe one diet or one way of living. Rather, they help people develop a deeper understanding of the food and lifestyle choices that work best for their bodies to achieve their wellness goals. Some common areas where a Health Coach can assist include weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy, digestion, stress, and time management.
A health coach helps you sort through the overwhelming amount of confusing information available to find what impacts your lifestyle most and align your goals with your daily activities.

YOU KEEP MENTIONING 'BALANCE.' WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Too much of a thing is not good. Optimal health is accomplished utilizing a variety of strategies such as physical health, emotional well-being, and spiritual wholeness. I'm here to work with you to ease your physical aches and pains, as well as to help you look at the softer side of life through lifestyle choices including foods and movement plus relationships and sleep. I'm here to show you that you can enjoy the process, and the process itself will actually aid in bringing that balance back to your day-to-day life.

Hours are by appointment only.
Lateness, No-shows and Rescheduling
If you are late for your scheduled session, you will receive the remainder of your scheduled time. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given you will be responsible for paying for the full session. I require 24 hours notice of changes to or cancellation of your scheduled session. Less than 24 hours notice are subject to 100% of the session price.If you do not contact me and do not show for a scheduled appointment, you will be considered a no-show. An invoice will be sent for 100% of the session price you missed. Until this invoice is paid, no further appointments will be accepted. Emergencies happen and can be discussed. Please contact me if you are running late or need to cancel. In turn, I will honor our appointments and be on time as well.
Please reschedule your session if you are sick and respect your body’s need to fully recuperate. The tail end of your illness could mean the beginning of mine, or of my next client’s. Likewise, I will honor your need to stay healthy and will reschedule our appointment if I am not well.
