Did You Know?

Acupressure for Better Sleep: Try this acupressure trick just before you go to bed. With your thumbs, press the soles of your feet where the heel and the arch meet. Lie on your back and bend your knees, using your right hand on your right foot and your left hand on your left foot. Press as hard as you can for at least two minutes. You should feel the tension leaving your body in preparation for sleep.

Mend Minor Cracks in Fine China with Milk: Milk contains casein, a protein that when heated turns into a natural plastic-like glue. Place your cracked dish in a pot large enough to cover it completely in milk. Bring the milk to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Let it simmer for 45-60 minutes then let the milk cool. Rinse the plate. The crack should be sealed!

Heartburn Cure in your Pantry:   If you have a bout of heartburn and you prefer a natural route to feel better, here’s what to do: take a teaspoon or two of uncooked oat flakes, and chew thoroughly before swallowing. Oatmeal absorbs the stomach acid that can cause the burning pain. (Joan and Lydia Wilen, Treasury of Home Remedies and Natural Cures)

Use Cooper Cookwear to Fight Salmonella: The oxidation of copper in copper alloy pots and pans produces a residue that kills salmonella and other bacteria that cause food poisoning. Stainless cookwear has no effect on Salmonella at all. (USA Today) 

Inspirational Quotes

"Don’t give your power away.  Others won’t use it right…Take the power yourself to create your world."

We all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.”  ~Jim Rohn   

“Don't look over your shoulder; if you do, you'll feel the weight of all your yesterdays upon you.  And don't worry about what lies ahead. By the time you get to the bend in the road, you're going to be better and stronger than you ever were before. Just go a step at a time, one day at a time.  And you'll find a rich, thankful life you never thought you could afford.” ~Adrian Rogers


Thank you for the wonderful tools I learned from your training. Having just completed your Energy Psychology training, I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of Hypnotherapy and Energy Psychology, and hopefully help an even greater number of people achieve emotional freedom. These techniques will transform the counseling profession. Marla, your training ability, dedication, and knowledge are outstanding. ~S. MacLeod, MFT

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone, 

We can either complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. 

I invite you all to think about how you’ve evolved and grown this past year. What distinctions have you noticed? In spite of adversities, what did you learn? Now ask yourself - what major changes do you foresee in the new year? 

Let’s think about December 31 as the moment when you stand on the brink of something new, something fresh, and something exciting. It’s time to rewrite your script for 2016! You are the writer, producer, director, and performer in your life’s journey; create it the way you want and deserve it to be. 

If you look at things with a greater perspective, you can see that the world is a beautiful garden. It’s your job to tend to and nurture it, and to appreciate the roses as you step into your magnificence.

Have a great holiday!

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA

PlayShop on Acknowledging your Successes of 2015 


As the end of the year approaches, we’re always looking ahead in hopes that the coming year will be better.


This fun-filled evening will help you identify and appreciate the great changes that you gleaned during the year as you move toward manifesting more of your desired goals.

There will be plenty of time to network with other professionals who are generally interested in the power of positive thinking. Bring plenty of business cards.
