Did You Know?

Burn Calories While Talking on the Phone: When you’re on the phone, take advantage of the time to stand up and pace. This is an example of non-exercise activity; something that you do normally that isn’t really exercise but still burns calories. You burn about one extra calorie for every minute that you’re on your feet compared to sitting. (Bottom Line, November 2013)


Get Rid of Garlicky Hands:

If your hands smell like garlic or onions, this helpful hint works like magic. Take a piece of flatware (any metal spoon, dull knife, or fork), and wash your hands with it under cold water as if it’s a bar of soap. The garlic or onion odor will disappear in seconds. (Joan and Lydia Wilen, authors of Treasury of Home Remedies and Natural Cures.)


Reflexology Can Reduce Pain by 40%:

Reflexology involves applying pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears. It is believed that this stimulates the body’s production of pain-relieving endorphins in the brain and spinal cord. Hence, reflexology may be as effective as drugs. (Research at the University of Portsmouth, England)

Marla, I attended the Therapeutic NLP training, and I want to thank you for these wonderful tools.  It has changed my life and my practice as well. Until the training I hadn't found a roadmap for how to really study it and understand it.  I'm so glad that I made the commitment to take the NLP training from your Institute.  I’m looking forward to taking the rest of your training.  I can only imagine how this is all going to enhance my life both personally and professionally.

~ Laurel R. LCSW


I’ve been using NLP techniques to help family, friends, and clients and I am continually amazed at how quickly and effectively these techniques work, not only for others but also for myself.  Your program is the complete package.  I look forward to taking more courses through the Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy. ~ Ann G.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

All endings are new beginnings... Are you like the majority of us who set your goals and intentions for the New Year and start out with a bang, yet as the days or weeks go by your momentum declines and you seem to backslide to where you were before the New Year started?  Well, you’re not alone.  We need to frame our goals in such a way that we can actually see and feel ourselves already accomplishing them as well as positively affirming ourselves in accordance with those resolutions. 

As I project out onto 2014, I can't help but wonder how my future growth and dreams will manifest. Am I ready? Can I do it? And the answer is YES!!! No matter how far you've come, or how much you've grown, there is still more growth to be had in creating and living a life you love. Let's just do it!!!

As we stand on the brink of something new, something fresh, something exciting, I too encourage and invite you to look to the future and discover actionable steps to make the differences happen!  Every step you take is just as important and instrumental to your development as the next step.  Remember, it takes determination, resilience, perseverance, and consistency to truly make your dreams come true. The key to success lies in your particular manner of thinking: believe in yourself. Make the intentional effort and the rest will fall into place…as your possibilities are endless.

YOU control your destinybe someone that makes YOU happy. 

Happy New Year!!!

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA

Open House Fundraiser

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those that helped make the Open House Fundraising Campaign for the Philippines Relief Fund a great success. We are more than half way toward our projected fundraising goal of $4,000+ by February 14th.  If you or anyone you know would still like to donate to any of the three funds we have chosen, please visit the link:


A special thanks goes to Dr. Edward Terrell who spoke to us about the loss and devastation that’s still going on in the Philippines. Dr. Terrell got his medical degree from the Philippines and had four medical clinics there that were all destroyed during the typhoon. Dr. Terrell also volunteers through Doctors Without Borders which is one of our fundraising groups.  To receive updates about what’s going on in the Philippines from Dr. Terrell and how our fundraising dollars are helping out, please go to our website:


Last but not least, I want to thank Andrew Utley for putting on a great FunShop on Setting Goals for 2014.
