The Shaklee Difference

Halo Neuroscience

Image result for halo neuroscience headphonesHalo Sport is designed to make your training or practice more efficient by improving your brain’s natural plasticity. The headphones that are pictured below are to be worn for 20 minutes prior and during warm up before training sessions. The primers on the headphones apply a mild electric field to the motor cortex, Halo’s Neuropriming technology induces a state of “hyperplasticity.” When someone trains in a hyperplastic state, the brain’s normal fine-tuning process occurs more rapidly meaning better results from each practice rep.Image result for halo neuroscience headphones I have been using Halo Sport for almost a year now and have seen improvements in my ability to focus and really work on my muscle memory leading to gains in all aspects of my sport.

East Winds Acupuncture


Throughout my training and recovery I have started to use acupuncture as an alternative form of treatment and to help my body repair, recover, and stay balanced. It has helped with coming back from my hip surgery, getting through tough weeks of training, and with minor injuries that frequently happen. A huge thanks goes out to Dr. Diane Cridennda for providing me with treatments to help aid in my dreams and keep me healthy. Visit East Winds Acupuncture website

REST & Float Solutions

I am happy to be an ambassador for REST and Float Solutions. The practice of flotation (also called flotation therapy) is quickly gaining popularity as a primary means of rest, relaxation, and recovery. Additionally, it is being used as an alternative to medicated solutions for chronic pain and generating notable results. The weightlessness achieved by effortlessly floating in a dense salt water solution makes it possible for the muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems to rest in a zero gravity environment, a unique sensation that only astronauts and free divers will regularly experience. Floating has been a great way for me to visualize my events, meditate/relax, and help with recovery from training. It is an out of body experience and has been beneficial with not only my athletics, but with life as well. If you are interested in trying floating please contact me!  Visit the REST website.
