My journey toward a natural, healthy, balanced life began over 30 years ago when I developed the first of a series of stress-related health conditions.
It started with anxiety and panic in college. Then some depression and irritable bowel syndrome in graduate school. Then came the biggie – chronic back pain. For 15 years.
I was a newspaper reporter at the time, working long hours at a desk before ergonomics, head sets and all that. I tried for years to stop the pain and keep my career. I switched from full-time to part time. I practiced and taught yoga. I saw massage therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, orthopedists, neurologists and surgeons. Some of them helped. None made a lasting difference.
Then, in 2004, I discovered Polarity Therapy and my life changed. Within six months, my pain was gone. I quit my job, and went back to school. I studied Polarity Therapy, Massage Therapy, Shiatsu, Craniosacral Therapy, Essential Oils, Ayurveda, Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology and Herbal Medicine.
My home life changed, too. We moved from the city to the country. We changed our diet – eating more vegetables and whole grains, and eliminating most whites: white flour, white sugar; and adding new foods – seaweed, spelt flour, sesame seeds and ghee – and spices. We stopped taking most medicines and replaced them with essential oils and herbs. We stopped getting sick as much.
During this time I started using Young Living Essential Oils to create a sense of calm and relaxation. It started with one bottle of Young Living’s Peace & Calming oil blend and took off from there. Now I own dozens and dozens of oils, which I’ve been using daily for more than 15 years.
In 2007, I became a certified Associate Polarity Practitioner and New York State Licensed Massage Therapist, and began working as a healer at the Polarity Center of Syracuse.
In 2012, I discovered the power of Light Therapy to reduce stress and heal the body, and began offering Light Therapy as part of my healing practice.
In 2015, after using Young Living Essential Oils for 10 years I decided to start my own Young Living business, teaching others how to use these powerful oils to enhance their lives and create chemical-free homes.
In 2017, I created my own company – My Oils Life – which includes both my healing work and my Young Living business. My Oils Life represents who I am today: a woman empowered by her life and her job who spends her days helping people feel better. A woman who is Mom to three amazing young adults, who has a loving partner, a house in the country, a dog and amazing friends.
My Oils Life is my dream life: natural, healthy, balanced, abundant.
You can live it, too!
Love & Health,
