(UPDATE: Read the first Food & Fitness Friday post here, where I’m sharing my 14-day wellness jumpstart plan!) Today we’re getting up close and personal.

10 Lessons I've Learned from Chronic Pain

I can’t express how grateful I am that my back pain has been significantly reduced since I started working with my physical therapist.

5 Ways to Manage Pain Naturally

About two months ago, I woke up with a “kink in my back” that has never gone away.

March 5th, 2013 at 8:08 am · Post a comment · 6 Comments

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Rancho La Puerta, a destination spa and fitness ranch located just south of San Diego in Tecate, Mexico.
