Ultimate Success

4 sessions a month plus email support gives you steady, solid help with getting out of pain, reducing stress and making “feeling good” a way of life.

Maybe you’re noticing aches and pains cropping up all around your body…or maybe it’s one persistent and familiar pain right *there* in that spot you know so well…it always seems to get worse with stress too.  You might be feeling like there isn’t enough of you to go around.  Maybe you’re exhausted, but can’t get to sleep at night.

What happened to simplicity?  What happened to joy?  What happened to having time and ease and the peace of mind to enjoy the flowers and the sunset?

Whether or not you have the room to simplify the demands on your time, there is a way to meet them pain free and from a place of deep well-being and personal nourishment.

What if you got the care you need to feel good and to show up as the person you want to be?

Introducing:

Ultimate Success

Steady, solid help to living pain free.

Maybe sometimes you sheepishly hang your head and say, “Well, I need to take better care of myself. I’m just not doing the stuff I know I should do to take care of myself.”

We’re so courageously and effectively able to cope with the pain and struggle, that we can persistently put all our energy into coping.  But by taking a little bit of that energy and putting it into self nurturing, you have more energy to handle all the things in life.  It’s like putting money in a savings account…hard to figure out how your going to do it at first, but then you have a buffer and no more financial stress.

The truth is that consistency has a far more profound nourishing effect. And that receiving care from someone else is supportive in a different way than the care we show ourselves.

 

When you want to feel good and be your best, there are three things you need:

 

  • The inner resources to deal with the stressful situations in your life without their taking such a toll on you.
  • Feeling physically comfortable without all those aches and pains, or your *problem area* acting up.
  • A hopeful prospect for your future, in which joy, ease and enjoyment of the little things are available, instead of being stuck with pain and stress forever.

Who is this Support for?

This package is ideal for people who have some persistent, ongoing or recurring pain that crops up and is getting in their way.  Or who feel that stress is having a negative effect on their health.  It’s for people who want to not only feel better right away, but want to develop a lifestyle of self care so they can feel their best and show up their best all (or most 🙂 ) of the time.

Or you might be someone who actually feels pretty good right now, but you set a high priority on taking the best care of yourself, because you can see the positive effect its had on your life and on everyone around you.  Maybe you’re anticipating a more challenging stretch for the next little while so you’re making sure you receive supportive care to help you through.

Now, if you’re in a situation where you’re not able to do your daily tasks because of some pain, then you’ll want to navigate to the Turbo Boost offer which is designed for more urgent situations.

Take a Stand for Your Health.

There are other things you can spend money on that may contribute more directly to your bottom line.  You can buy a college education or some business coaching and maybe see a tangible return on your investment.  When you spend money on your well being it seems like it’s just gone. But where does the money you make really come from?  It comes out of your life force, your energy, your qi, and how you channel that vitality through your talents.  So, caring for yourself may not augment your bottom line, you may not see an effect on your earning potential or your profit and loss statement, but it supports the part of you that all of that comes out of.  Without your vitality there is nothing to trade for money.

It goes deeper than that too of course, because your vitality, your energy is what you need to have in order to support what you love.  Your family, your work, your community…whatever beautiful thing that you believe in and believe is worthwhile.

I want you to have that vitality so that you can support the beauty you believe in.

I know pain can be rough.

When we bought our property in 2011 I was in the midst of a long stretch of limiting and depressing back pain.  It was a time when I wanted to be physically able to do lots of projects, and I couldn’t.

I’ve had jobs doing construction and hard, physical labor on a trail maintenance crew for many years.  I have hiked the Pacific Crest Trail across Washington.  We built our own home from the ground up. I know personally many of the ways a body can hurt from being used a lot.

Now we grow a large garden and go on several backpacking and skiing trips every year.  Pain no longer keeps me from doing any of the things I want to do.

I have experienced both the joie de vivre of feeling physically able to do things that give my life meaning, and the deep frustration and despair of limitation with no apparent end.

To me, activity is joy.  Activity is part of playing in this incredible landscape and making the most of what it is to be alive.

Is it okay to receive care if you’re not in pain?

I do talk a lot about setting tangible goals.  I do that because I know it’s good for morale to be able to see that there is change and that the actions your taking are making a difference.  Without that it becomes too easy to quit.  I think that those goals are really important, and one of the biggest barriers to a good outcome is quitting before you get there.

But I realize it makes it seem like you have to be in pain or have some other negative situation that your trying to move away from in order to justify receiving care.  That’s not what I mean at all.  It’s just that the motivation so often comes from there at first.  It’s okay (in fact it’s great!) to go from good to better.

Going from pain to no pain is just one threshold on the journey.

Receiving care helps you set a positive baseline.  If you become used to feeling really good you’ll notice right away if you start not feeling really good…and you’ll take steps to get back to that good place.  If you become used to feeling lousy, or ho-hum…you’ll start to think it’s normal!

It’s like you’ve got precious jewels inside you. When you see them there you feel wealthy, and it feels really good to feel wealthy.  But there is a tendency to get distracted and forget that they’re there, so we can end up feeling impoverished and like there just isn’t enough…of us, or of anything.  It helps us to connect often with what’s ideal and beautiful so we don’t forget it.  That act of reconnection with that inner wealth is a celebration for the act of living.

Some stuff you’re probably wondering about:

Scheduling

I want your to receive every session that you’ve paid for so I only offer a limited number of each subscription and package.  That said, if you have limitations in your schedule its best to book a few sessions into the future to make sure that you can get the time you want.  If you have limited availability and are not able to schedule more than a few days into the future this may not be the right choice for you.

My session times are:

  • Tuesday at 9 am, 11 am, 2 pm and 4 pm
  • Thursday at 11 am, 2  pm and 4 pm
  • Friday at 9 am, 11 am, 2 pm and 4 pm

There’s a little flexibility with the last session and we can start as late as 4:30 pm if you need to.

How to Schedule:

You can schedule via my online calendar.  You can call me.  You can schedule at the time of your session. You can also email or text me.  Once I email or text you to confirm then the  appointment is scheduled.

You can schedule from 24 hours to 2 months before your appointment.

Same day scheduling almost never works.

I encourage you to schedule more than one appointment out to ensure continuity with your care.

 

How do you reschedule or change an appointment?

You can reschedule your appointment through any of the means you use to schedule appointments.

For any appointment rescheduled or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice

there is a rescheduling surcharge of $40.

If you are rescheduling with less than 24 hours notice you must call or text me with that information to avoid having the appointment considered a “no-show” and thus forfeiting the entire appointment.  A late rescheduling charge is better than a forfeit appointment.  (I see calls and texts faster than I see the calendar and email.  Also, because it is a rural area our internet can sometimes go out for 24 hours or more.)

How long do you get to schedule your appointment and what happens if you don’t get around to it?

I understand it can be difficult to make the time for your care.  I need to assume that you’re really committed to making a change and that you’re going to make time for it.  A lot of delays in treatment aren’t going to get you to the goal you want.  So please schedule early, schedule multiple appointments out, and guard the time from all the urgent things that want your attention.

All of the programs have a recommended interval: once a month, once a week, twice a week, etc.

That’s intended as a guideline. It doesn’t have to be exactly, precisely a one month or one week interval.

If once in awhile you need a little extra slack, your appointments can roll over for one month.  For example, if you enroll on June 11th you normally get until July 11th to use your appointments…but if you didn’t use all your appointments in that time, the unused one(s) will roll over to the next month.  If they’re not used by August 11th they’ll just expire, evaporate, be gone, gone, gone.

Payment

How do you pay?

You can pay with a credit/debit card when you receive your invoice or through the scheduling site 24 hours or more before you’re appointment.  You can also pay in person at your first appointment via cash or check.  Don’t mail a check, I don’t want your treatment to be delayed because of mail delivery.

When do you pay?

Payment is due at or before you’re first session.

What if you want to upgrade?

You can start with a single session and decide to upgrade to something more robust within 1 week of that session.  Then I’ll apply the difference between the single session price and the package price to whatever program we decide fits you and you can pay the remainder before we continue work.

If you need to upgrade or downgrade your program, we’ll have a look at what you’ve paid, what you’ve received and do the math to come up with something sensible.

 

No Shows and Refunds

If you don’t show up for a scheduled appointment for any reason that appointment is gone.  There is no refund and no rescheduling.

It still counted as one of your appointments.  I was still there and my time booked up waiting to support you.

If you request a refund within 30 days of making a payment lets talk about it and work that out.  I can’t think through every possible scenario of how that might look, but I intend to work it out to your satisfaction.

If you request a refund after 30 days from the time of making a payment, I will suggest an alternate solution.  I need some dependability and safety to be able to show up for people and be my best.

I don’t want to take money for nothing though, so some possible solutions are to ask you to gift whatever you’ve paid for to someone else.

You can also “pay it forward”.  That means that I’ll keep those sessions on the books and when someone comes along who can really benefit from them, but would be taking on financial hardship by paying for them, I will give them those sessions.

The Place

I have a home practice.  There’s a sign out at the road to help you find the place.  There is a bathroom you can use.  It’s a peaceful setting and you’re welcome to take a little personal time for yourself before jumping back in your car.

I don’t have a waiting room though.  So it’s best to show up no more than 5 minutes before your appointment to give me time between sessions (because I feel weird about ignoring people). That also means that if someone drives you to your appointment they won’t really have a place to hang out either.  They could go for a walk on the Whitehorse trail if the weathers nice.

If you don’t use your appointments they will roll over into the following month and be added to the new appointments for that month. They will not roll over for more than one month.  You also have the option to gift your appointment to a proxy.  These subscriptions are intended to support one persons health and healing and shouldn’t be entered into with the intent of being shared around, but there are sometimes circumstances that make this the best choice and it’s a nice gift for your spouse or friend.

How to Reschedule:

You can reschedule your appointment through any of the means you use to schedule appointments.

For any appointment rescheduled or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice there is a rescheduling surcharge of $40.

If you are rescheduling with less than 24 hours notice you must call or text me with that information to avoid a possible no-show fee.  (I see calls and texts faster than I see the calendar and email.)

No Shows and Refunds

If you no show for an appointment without calling for any reason that appointment will be forfeit.  I know that it can be difficult to really prioritize our own care when we’re feeling pulled in a lot of directions.  These policies are in place primarily to help you honor the commitment you’ve made to yourself and to not let every little thing in life walk all over the time that you’ve carved out to receive support for being your best.

If you need a refund within 30 days of making a payment lets talk about it and work that out.  I can’t think through every possible scenario of how that might look, but I intend to work it out to your satisfaction.

If you need a refund after 30 days from the time of making a payment, I’m going to have to suggest an alternate solution.  I need some dependability and safety to be able to show up for people and be my best.  I don’t want to take money for nothing though so some possible solutions are to ask you to gift whatever you’ve paid for to someone else.  You can also “pay it forward”.  That means that I’ll keep those sessions on the books and when someone comes along who can really benefit from them, but would be taking on financial hardship by paying for them, I will give them those sessions.

A Note on Decision Making.

It’s easier to think through and make a solid decision once than it is to have to make the decision over and over and to have to think it through each time.  That’s why I designed my business this way. So you can think it through and make one solid decision in support of your health and well being that will get you all the way from where you are now to living pain free and feeling good.  I’d like to set you up with a supportive default action rather than an unsupportive one.

If you feel like you need time to think about it or talk about it with someone.  That’s no problem. I encourage you to do that so you can feel more solid when you do make you’re decision.

But if you feel like this is right for you and you feel that this is important, I really encourage you to make the decision right now and start.  If you wait for some absolutely perfect time it’ll probably never happen.

If you feel like this is what you need, but you’re not quite sure, please ask me.  I’ll help you get the clarity you need…whether it’s Yes or No.
