The U.S. has an estimated 45 million people with chronic headaches. As a massage therapist, you are uniquely positioned to help relieve their pain naturally and drug-free.

I appreciate MASSAGE Magazine for seeing the value of this work for clients and practitioners — now and eleven years prior to publication of THE HEADACHE HEALER’S HANDBOOK (2018, New World Library), when they first published my writing.

One year ago I fulfilled my longtime vision and mission by publishing The Headache Healer’s Handbook. What a blessing to celebrate my launch with dear family and friends!

I am so grateful to every single person who bought, recommended, and reviewed my book; supported, advised, and cheered me on; and hosted me on their radio show, podcast, webcast, blog, website, panel, and live event.

I love helping people transform their pain and live joyful, creative, empowered lives. The journey continues, and the work expands.

Thank you!
