Relieve Chronic Pain

When illness or pain lingers you need an advocate in your corner, a coach, a mentor, a guide—even a mechanic for those tough under the hood situations. Our bodies are a lot like the vehicles we drive—regular maintenance is how we can help them to run a little better and keep us safely on the road.

Chronic conditions turn our bodies into high maintenance vehicles. As we mature chronic conditions evolve and sometimes worsen. Working with a coach is motivating, can recharge your batteries, and places an expert in your corner.

Pain Management

Each and every one of us handles pain a little differently, experiences it differently, and will tolerate pain in differing degrees. Pain medication use is a very personal experience that should be monitored by you and your doctor. On my website, I offer a number of tools and resources that have been useful for me.

This information is not a substitute for the medical advice of physicians. Take what is useful, investigate these options, and speak to your doctor before incorporating something new into your personal wellness plan.


Regular acupuncture treatments was by far the most effective remedy for me to manage pain and minimize stress before, during, and after hip replacement.

Arnica is a homeopathic that has been in my life for many moons and has been my go to gel to minimize bruises (externally & internally) and decrease swelling. Bio-Oil has provided me with positive results to improve the texture and color of my surgical scars and ProCure Epsom Salt Gel is a newly discovered favorite to ease aches and pains. I especially like that the gel is easy to transport and shelf stable. I keep a tube in my office and have on hand while I travel for easy spot treatment. I prefer a natural mineral spring soak or Epsom salt bath when I have the time and opportunity though have found this Epsom salt gel is extremely effective and provides me with long-lasting pain relief.
