Why is self-care so hard?

From our Ayruveda and Yoga Specialist, Stephanie K, this really hits home. ——- It is much easier to help others than yourself. It can be hard to put into practice the things you know about healing and being well. But as a healer or highly sensitive person, it becomes more important than ever to do just that,…

Student Floats for $55

When it came to University, you could say I did a victory lap or two.  I started at Saint Mary’s University with the hopes of entering into medicine and one day, becoming a coroner (I know, don’t ask).  I picked up a Diploma of Forensic Sciences along the way but, after realizing that every second…

Dissolving Claustrophobia in the Float Tank
