Jeffrey Burch specializes in Rolfing® structural integration, visceral manipulation, cranial manipulation, and Upledger CranioSacral Therapy. Jeffrey has utilized these techniques to provide treatment for chronic pain carpal tunnel, TMJ, and many other conditions. I went to Jeffrey‘s office in Eugene Oregon in December 2006 and watched him working for three days. When I returned to Colorado I decided to emulate his method of bodywork. Within a short period of time the efficiency and quality of my work elevated quickly to a very high level and I have never look back since!
Michael is one of the most gifted and talented manual therapists that I know. I met Michael in January 2008 in Eugene Oregon when he was assisting Jeffrey Burch in a visceral manipulation series of classes that I took. Michael is excellent with all his clients but he has a special talent with Infants.
I studied infant craniosacral therapy with Carol. She is one of the most intuitive and gifted healers I have ever trained with! She also is an amazing teacher. I have consulted with her over the time that I have been injured and she is the one who when I asked her if she ever uses “energetic hands“ when she works, told me that not only does she use energetic hands but she uses as many energetic hands as she needs. At that point I was only using one energetic hand and one physical hand on a client’s body, Limiting myself to the way I had always worked. There are times now when I use three or four or five energetic hands and sometimes I even use 20 or more.

He had a deep inner awakening in 1971 while working on his doctorate in economics and went into seclusion to focus on yoga and meditation. In 1975, he founded Temple of the Universe, a now long-established yoga and meditation center where people of any religion or set of beliefs can come together to experience inner peace.

Carolyn Dean, MD, ND
Dr. Dean has been practicing medicine for 40 years and has become one of the knowledgeable practitioners regarding the benefits of magnesium therapy. She has a best-selling book entitled “The Magnesium Miracle“ which has over 600 references. It is a book that I believe every household should have a copy of and it should be required reading for every doctor on the planet. I already thought I knew a lot about magnesium but this book has expanded my understanding of magnesium to a whole new level. And the mineral products she has developed are the most absorbable I have encountered. Previously I was only able to tolerate about 100 mg per day of magnesium in various forms without getting a laxative effect. With her ReMag magnesium liquid I was able to quickly increase my dosage to 900 mg per day taken orally and 400 mg a day topically!
I am in no way affiliated with her company or do I receive any monetary compensation. I share her information because her products are life-changing. Magnesium is so critical for so many processes in our bodies. Many of the disease states that humans are dealing with are actually the disease of magnesium deficiency. Her magnesium is so absorbable that it doesn’t even make it into the intestines to cause a laxative effect. Most people are able to tolerate large daily dosages that can create a therapeutic effect and heal many common issues: atrial fibrillation and other heart arrhythmias, insomnia, high stress, anxiety, depression, restless leg syndrome, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, muscle cramps and spasms, kidney disease, calcification of body tissues, low energy, poor digestion and assimilation, migraines, diabetes and much more.
Will Schlinsog, DC and Elizabeth Schlinsog
They are the exclusive US importers of a very special oil harvested from Australian Emu birds. Walkabout Emu Oil is the highest naturally occurring food source for Vitamin K2 MK-4. Not only does MK-4 act as a co-factor in the cellular production of energy in the electron transport chain in the mitochondria, but also as a co-factor in activating vitamin K-dependent proteins for blood clotting, bone development (directing calcium into the bone), keeping arteries calcium free, hardening tooth enamel, reproduction, maintaining the integrity of skin, and even survival itself. Dr. Will says, “Emu oil has been the single best nutritional supplement that I have used in my practice for reducing systemic and local inflammation. It has solved many nutritional deficiencies without overwhelming the patient with multiple supplements.”
I do have a wholesale account with their company for selling small amounts of product locally.
