Allergy Symptoms Affecting YOU?

If so, you are not the only one! This year, more than ever, the symptoms of allergies are running rampant. Allergies are patterns that your body has developed in reaction to allergens. And this year, the allergens from grasses, weeds, and tree pollen are showing up in a big way after all that winter rain followed by heat and then more rain.


Allergies are reactions to allergens when your immune system is compromised. So, boost your immune system, and you will help your body get on the other side of the pattern of reactions.


If you are dealing with any of these symptoms, you are most likely in an allergy pattern:

  • Sinus congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Headaches
  • Itchy water eyes
  • Itchy throat
  • A stuffy or runny nose


There are ways to reduce the misery of seasonal allergies and help your body reach a healthier, happier state of being. And, when you accomplish getting beyond misery and suffering, you’ll discover that you feel stronger and have more vitality, that your sleep has improved, and that your productivity has increased. One way to enjoy the spring colors and scents more is by using self-help acupressure!

3 Ways to Improve Your Relationship with Mother Nature!

Stay Hydrated, body ¾ filled with water and drinking water

Hydration! Drink lots of water!

Allergies dry out our systems. It’s essential to hydrate your body. Avoiding dehydration will boost your immune system and help maintain normal histamine levels. Read more about it in this article from,

Lubricate your body adequately with suitable fluids, including electrolytes, and all layers and levels of your body will notice the difference. Your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic levels will all cooperate and bring health.




Eat anti-inflammatory foods!



Beat seasonal allergies the natural way by adding anti-inflammatory foods to your grocery list. Pineapple, which contains the enzyme known as bromelain, fish oil, and fresh ginger, are just a few that will reduce allergic reactions.

Use acupressure to relieve allergy symptoms!

In the 28 years that I’ve been in private practice, I’ve seen many clients who suffer from the effects of allergies, especially spring allergies. Most of them find that when they receive a Jin Shin Jyutsu session, their bodies decide to let go of the blocked energy, causing the allergens’ reactions.

Why do Jin Shin Jyutsu and acupressure work with allergy symptoms?

Our bodies are made of energy. Energy needs to flow. Conditions, illnesses, and injuries are evidence of blocked energy. Acupressure helps energy flow. It allows the body to let go of symptoms and heal.

Self-help acupressure does the trick!

Once your body notices that “it is on the other side of the progression of allergy patterns,” self-help acupressure will help you keep the re-patterning from now on. In fact, your body is reprogramming itself when you spend time helping your body experience energetic balance and harmony. And consistency is the key! So do your energy balancing daily. And since there is no such thing as too much self-help acupressure, do it as often as you think of it throughout the day!

In addition, when you hydrate, eat foods that are not inflammatory, and limit your exposure to the allergy-misery-creators, you will help your body let go of symptoms, heal, and remove the old pattern that has been saying, “I’m supposed to react to this pollen.”

Are you ready to let go of these allergy symptoms?

  • Sinus congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Headaches
  • Itchy water eyes
  • Itchy throat
  • A stuffy or runny nose


I have a Mother’s Day gift to relieve allergy symptoms for you and your family!

Recovering from the Sonoma Fires

Watching and Waiting

Recovering from the Sonoma Fires

This last week has been one of the most intense and crazy times most of us who live in Sonoma County and Napa County have ever experienced. The loss and devastation are beyond belief. My heart goes out to those who have lost their homes. Many are still in a place of uncertainty as to what is next. That is most likely going to be “the new normal” for awhile.
I hope that YOU are in a safe and comfortable place wherever you might be.

I’m one of the lucky ones

my home is intact. In fact, the evacuation has been lifted and I returned today to see my home for the first time since Monday the 9th at 1:00 am when I raced away from our neighborhood. If you’ve been reading my Facebook posts, you know that my kids, Nicole and Chris, have been on the property on fire watch – keeping the buildings and gardens wet and putting out grass fires in the subdivision, along with other neighbors who were doing the same. Over the last few days, they have had to chase off looters who are cruising the areas affected by the fire. How sad that there are people who are hurting rather than helping their community.
I’ve been staying safe with friends in Petaluma. They managed to make me laugh when there was so much to be sad about. Since I work out of my home, I haven’t been able to see clients there. But a friend offered an extra room in her massage studio in Cotati, which has been working out beautifully. I’m expecting to be back in my home treatment room space by next Monday.
Being able to “do my work” with my clients has been my saving grace. Please reach out to me and let me know how you are doing. And, if you or someone you know has lost their home, I’m offering complimentary acupressure/Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions.
As you know, an acupressure session can relieve stress and effects of trauma, help with respiratory issues, correct digestive discomfort and relieve pain and discomfort. Please let me know if I may be of assistance.
I’d like to give you some ways to help your body let go of the build-up of stress.

Healing and Breathing

As the body experiences balance and harmony, you can relieve anxiety, let go of the pressure and stress, achieve calm, strengthen your immune system, promote healing, relieve pain (chronic or acute).

Here are a few of the tips:

To open the breath and calm the whole system:
  • Hold thumbs with opposite hands
  • Hold index fingers with opposite hands
  • Fold arms across chest and hold opposite upper arms
To relieve respiratory distress, such as holding breath or coughing:
  • Hold right base of rib cage with right fingers
  • Hold right chest below clavicle with left fingers
  • Switch and hold opposite sides
To release jaw, mouth or throat tension, such as clenching or holding breath:
  • Cup sternum directly below clavicle with right hand
  • Place left fingertips in a vertical pattern below the navel
I hope that you make use of these suggestions! They can really make a difference!

Additional Energy and Recovery Tips

How you can speed up recovering from the Sonoma Fires:

  • Please wear your masks when you go outside. The air quality is poor after the fire.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Get electrolytes into your system (coconut water is a great source, Smart Water, as well as electrolyte powders).
  • Take your EFA’s (essential fatty acids) — omegas are a natural anti-inflammatory.
  • Consider taking a supplement that will help your respiratory system get clear and stay clear (the ones I like are Dr. Michael Murray’s Lung, Bronchial & Sinus Health and Clear Lungs by Ridgecrest).
  • Drink Throat Coat tea.
  • Get enough sleep.
It is important to keep your stress level down and your immune system strong right now.
