What is Environmental Well Being?

Environmental Well Being – No. 4 of our 5 elements More often than not, the element of  environmental well being seems to always take a back seat to everything else we deal with on a daily basis.  Who wants to spend time searching for better jobs, creating a budge, worrying about exposure to toxins or maintaining a vehicle or home?  It’s much easier to mentally shove these things aside until you HAVE to focus on them.  But after time, your body has been compromised...

When we were first referred to Mrs. Cathy Dick at One Degree Forward, my first question was, “Is she a doctor?”  If the answer had been yes I think I would have refused.  Instead the answer was like a breath of fresh air.

You helped me last year, around this time, with my son, Patrick – who is thriving by the way!!!  I hope your ears have been burning because I have been singing your praises and forwarding your website like crazy.  I so appreciate you and the work you do, how you support families in supporting their children’s unique learning styles.  I have got to get more of your cards!  As a massage therapist, I listen to a lot of clients tell me their frustrations… makes for easy referrals!
