Denial and Fear Disguised as Self-Esteem

I’m exposing the nauseating, butchered version of the “Mermaid or a Whale” post for the banal drivel it truly is. It is not that I like pouring salt on the wound, but it is disconcerting to see how something so flawed could be so blindly cheered. Hey, we once thought lynching witches was correct!

Injuries that Should NOT Be

Trying to explain how I help folks eliminate pain in one generalized umbrella is impossible. The situation gets more complex as I combine many modalities which in my experience, work well together.

7 Reasons Kettlebells are awesome for divers

This is an excerpt from my upcoming book “Kettlebells for a Fit Diver” and I hope you enjoy it!

Let me tell you how I got to love kettlebells for scuba diving. Many years ago after heeding the beckoning of the underwater world, I was getting ready for my open water diver certification.
