IMG_0091

Today I was reminded  of the body’s own ability to heal itself.  Sometimes things just need to shift to give you new perspective on what’s ailing you.  However, in this age of quick access to information, a doctor at your fingertips, and the google button, the options we have to treat ourselves are endless.  I […]
