2017: A Year In Review
|Darin & Bailey repainting the office|
In January of 2017, we were hard at work getting our newly leased office space ready for business. We repainted the entire office space and carefully designed the interior to create a safe space for our clients to work through their inner processes. Since the initial setup, we have periodically rearranged and redecorated various parts of the office to create a space that is as dynamic and unique as the clients we serve. (Plus, if you know Darin, you know that he can't leave furniture and decorations in one place for very long!)
February 1st, 2017 was the first day we offered appointments for CranioSacral Therapy at the Lake of the Ozarks, massage therapy, visceral manipulation, and other therapies. In the past year we have been proud to serve clients with a variety of different backgrounds, needs, and ages. A few examples include working with babies to overcome issues such as reflux, lip/tongue ties, and restricted head growth, as well as and adults with frozen shoulder, anxiety, migraines, and PTSD.
In June, I finally worked up the courage to make a career shift. I began dedicating my full attention to helping Darin grow our new business and taking classes so that I could serve as a therapist as well. I cannot express how excited, humbled, honored I am to join Darin in the amazing work that he does!

In November, Amy Ginsky, LMT of Bliss Bodywork, LLC began taking appointments in our second therapy room. We were excited to invite another like-minded therapist into our space, and we look forward to watching Amy's practice continue to grow.
In late December, Darin officially earned his Diplomate Certification in CranioSacral Therapy from The Upledger Institute. This high-level certification is only awarded to the most dedicated CranioSacral therapists, and earning it had been a long-time dream for Darin. We are so incredibly excited for that dream to have finally become a reality!

The events just discussed were some of the primary highlights from 2017, but the whole year was filled with one exciting development after another. We learned a lot, both as therapists and as business owners. We plan to use the momentum built throughout last year to propel us forward into these new plans for 2018.
Two CranioSacral Therapists
By early fall, I will complete my preliminary training and be ready to join Darin as a CranioSacral Therapist at the Lake of the Ozarks. Once licensed, I will be able to take individual appointments as well as work with Darin directly to offer multi-hands CranioSacral Therapy sessions (a client being simultaneously treated by multiple therapists). Multi-hands work is immensely powerful -- once I am ready to begin taking appointments, we will take a deeper look at the benefits of multi-hands work.
Expanding The Space
Our office space includes a large, unfinished room. Apart from storage, this room has been predominantly unused throughout this first year while we got the business up and running. We are now beginning preparations to finish this back room. We are planning to build in a second, larger, ADA-approved restroom (complete with a shower) and a large additional treatment room. For now, this extra treatment room will serve the same purpose as our existing rooms; however, we plan to eventually install a small pool so that we can offer in-water CranioSacral Therapy sessions. Once we get closer, we will explore the unique benefits of zero-gravity treatments.
Looking Forward To What's To Come
We are moving forward in 2018 with a primary overarching goal in mind: to expand our manual therapy business in Central Missouri so that we may better serve an even wider variety of individuals. By teaming up with like-minded therapists and organizations, we can come together to create a powerfully therapeutic environment that can support each client on his/her own unique journey towards integrated health and wholeness.
2017 was a truly phenomenal first year, and we are greatly looking forward to the adventures 2018 has in store. Thank you so much to our family, friends, and -- most importantly -- our clients who support us. It is an honor to serve you and to provide holistic health services at the Lake of the Ozarks!
