Holistic Health Coaching with Shannon


Holistic Health Coaching now available


It’s hard to believe that it has been 22 years since I started on my journey as a Licensed Massage Therapist. Seems like just yesterday when I opened my first clinic on Madeira Beach in 1996. Since then my practice has taken on many forms, from clinics with other amazing practitioners to schlepping my table as mobile massage therapist through life changes, kids and different opportunities. I am grateful for those who have allowed me to assist them in the healing of their injuries, aches and pains. Most of all I am grateful for all my clients whose lives continue to touch my spirit every day. Through the power of touch, those who I come into contact have helped to heal me as much as I them, and are truly more like family than patients.


It is with great excitement that I get to share with you the launch of a new level of service that I am providing. Some of you may be aware that I have been working towards my certification as an Holistic Health Coach. I will be combining my years of teaching and sharing the concepts of Food-Base Healing that I received certification as an Advanced Instructor in 2009 (recently updated in 2017) with my training as a Health Coach. Many of you have received bits of this knowledge while on my table or have attended my workshops or smoothie demo’s over the years. Now it’s time for me to formalize this service as an addition to, not in place of, my massage practice. I will continue to provide massage therapy services for years to come for those who are already my clients and am doing this so that is possible. It is a great gift to have a vocation instead of just a job. I love what I do as a massage therapist and the lives I am blessed to touch. The reality is that massage therapy is very physically demanding, and I would like to make sure I can continue to manage my current client base. I have decided to limit new clients to only those with TMJ (Jaw) issues. For those of you who are established massage clients by the end of April 2018 will continue to have access to my hands on therapy. 


Great Big THANK YOU to my Community

To celebrate the launch my new Holistic Health Coaching practice and to give a warm hearted THANK YOU to the community that has supported me for over 22 years, I would like to invite you to a FREE, yes absolutely free, 45 minute Initial Consult for everyone who completes a Health History form on my website between April 1, 2018 until June 30, 2018. Even if I have done some Food-Based healing work with you previously, head over to my new website Five Rings Wellness and fill out a Health History form. Once done, I will be in touch to schedule a time for your free 45 minute initial consult or you can book on-line by clicking the “schedule appointment” button on the same page.


What is an Holistic Health Coach?

As an Holistic Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® where I am learning innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between. My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness. Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life. During your free initial consult we will go over the information you provided on your Health History and work together to sort out some ways you can get started on your wellness goals.


A look at what’s to come

As I’m wrapping up my studies at IIN I will be getting back to weekly blogs with cutting edge health and wellness information to enhance your life and wellbeing and will be hosting some awesome guest contributors together we will be bringing you topics including;

  • Shifting from diets to bio-individual food alchemy
  • Relationship cultivation

I also have a new pet project, a blog series, “What’s in Your Food?!” The good, bad and the ugly of what’s in our food supply, going to the sources of where I get my food and how what we consume whether its food, information or energy effects our health and wellbeing. Kicking it off with a story about my new friend Pandora and her home at The Dancing Goat Farm in Tampa, FL.

There is a LOT more I’m brewing, but will stop here for now!

Please take a moment to fill out a Health History form so we can schedule some time together. I look forward to seeing how I can help you with your wellness goals.

Yours in Abundant Health & Happiness,
