Did You Know?

Olive Oil Each Day Can Keep Strokes Away:  People who consistently add olive oil to their food in cooking and salad dressings were 41% less likely to suffer from an ischemic stoke than people who did not use olive oil.  An ischemic stroke, in which blood flow to a part of the brain is blocked, is the most common kind of stroke. (Cecilia Samieri, PhD, leader of two studies on olive oil consumption and stroke risk. University Bordeaux Segalen, France)


Smiling Is Good For Your Heart:  People who smiled after a stressful task showed a greater decline in heart rate and faster recovery from stress than people who maintained a neutral facial expression.  (University of California Irvine Research published in Psychological Science)

Chia Seeds Are Good For You:  Have you ever had a Chia Pet? Well the seeds provide healthful omega-3 fats, fiber, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, and other beneficial minerals. They may slow absorption of sugar and help reduce cholesterol.  Add the seeds to cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt. You can buy them at a health food store or online.

“Don’t it always seem to go, that we don’t know what we got ‘til it’s gone?” -Joni Mitchell

“I attended training in Energy Psychology and I want to thank you. It has changed my life and my practice as well. Your teaching manual was absolutely wonderful, very concise, and informative.  Until your seminar, I hadn't found the roadmap for how to really understand and study Energy Psychology. That was exactly what I've been looking for. Thank you for your knowledge and presentation.” 

-L. Rothschild (Life Coach)

“Thanks for the training and the inspiration. I made the investment of a lifetime when I found you.  Your training, supportiveness, and guidance have helped me let go of limiting beliefs and realize greater personal and professional successes.” 

-M. Greer, Yoga Instructor

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,


Our Grand Opening Social Networking event on September 23rd was amazing!!!  There were 69 guests who joined us to help launch our new site for the Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy and our integrative Wellness Center.


Make your life an exclamation, not an explanation.


The little book DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF... and it's all small stuff, by Richard Carlson, PhD, reminds me of the importance of how to laugh at problems and stresses in our lives. In retrospect, there usually is a funny or ridiculous side to any problem…if we allow ourselves to see it.


Before a big meeting, important date, (or any other situation that makes you nervous), put on a favorite song, take a powerful stance in front of a full-length mirror, smile a cocksure smile, and slowly nod your head yes. Watch this powerful YOU in the mirror for a few moments…and breathe. Feel the confident energy course though your veins. Before walking away from the mirror, squeeze both your fists tight, take a deep breath, and say to yourself, "Yes I Can!!!" 


If you feel nervous later in the day, squeezing your fists again will act as a kinesthetic anchor that helps your mind and body recall the feeling of power that you felt in front of the mirror.  The more you do this, the more powerful the change you will experience.  And after it’s all over with, you can later enjoy a good laugh about it.


Focus on what you have, what you like, and what you want (not on what you lack, dislike, and don’t want).  Focus is like a penlight in the dark--it illuminates only a very small portion of what surrounds you. Whatever you choose to illuminate is the direction your life will take you.


Rethink your self-talk to reframe your self-image. Own that powerful YOU!


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure." –Marianne Williamson


To Your Success,


Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA

    Upcoming Certification Trainings

Energy Psychology

October 12-13, October 19-20, November 2-3

Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00am - 6:00pm

CE credits available for MFTs, LCSWs, RNs, and others.

Learn powerful energy therapy techniques and applications designed to create permanent changes in your life and in the lives of others. These techniques help to eliminate anxieties, fears, self-sabotage programming, past traumas, and limiting beliefs.


Energy Therapies address the same energy system as acupuncture or acupressure by using simple tapping procedures. These therapies aim to release negative emotions caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system. These gentle, mindful, and natural modalities help to facilitate profound positive changes.


This comprehensive course provides experiential training and hands-on demonstrations. This training is also beneficial for anyone in quest of personal self-growth.

Open House On Laughter & Humor

I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Jill Knox for helping to kick off our Grand Opening Social Networking event on laughter and humor.  Collaborating with Jill was so rewarding since we were both coming from a space of laughter.


Here are some of the benefits of bringing laughter into your life:

  • Significant pain reduction
  • Elevation of mood and  increased energy
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Improved mental alertness
  • Increased circulation
  • Increased blood flow to the brain
  • Increased depth of respiration and pulmonary exchange

Thank you again for being there, 'cuz if you weren’t there I’d be talking to myself.

  Office Space - for People in the Helping Field
