Opening to the Springtime Magic

Here in Western North Carolina, Spring is working its magic.  The trees are budding and the daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths are blooming into a rainbow of colors.  Asheville is beginning to buzz with activity again, to wake up from the hibernation of Winter.  On one of our recent days of 70 degree weather, I made a joke to a local about skipping Spring and going straight into Summer.  He just shook his head and told me not to be fooled, ...Read more


"Dr. Brian was my first introduction into Network Care and it just made sense to me. The benefits have been both physical and emotional. Whether it's singing clearly, breathing deeply, or noticing sensations on one side of my body, the treatment has been so powerful.  Brian is kind, trusting, and very nurturing as he guides me through the journey of care.  My kids have loved seeing Dr. Brian - Maura's reaction the first time was "I want to go back and do that again!" It seems no matter what age or what needs a person may have, Brian is able to meet you where you are and bring about positive, supportive change.  Network Care has been life changing and I can't imagine life without it"

Get your Nia on!

It’s pretty common these days to see or hear some variation on the idea that ‘life is about the journey and not the destination.’  And I agree.  I like to think that my feminine nature is totally on board with going with the flow, appreciating the present moment, stopping to smell the roses.  Yet this morning, as I sit and sip my Earl Grey and count off in my mind the number of threads that are hanging out there in the cool summer breeze that need to be pulled in and woven together to create the tapestry of our business, I am feeling some masculine energy about just getting some things d-o-n-e  DONE!

Which is why I am so thankful I have made a commitment to drive down today to the afternoon Nia class of Denise Medved, a Nia black-belt trainer based in Hendersonville, NC.  I could put on some music or even a dvd and do some Nia at home, but for me it is such a richer, deeper, more joyful experience to be with Nia in community,  And one of the things I absolutely LOVE about Nia is that it lets all the different parts of me come out and play.  The parts that like to flow like water in the fluid of rhythmic movement.  And the parts that like to focus on a single point with a kick or a punch or simply grounded with my feet in a powerful stance.
