From being a clinician specializing in women’s wellness, to running my own bath and body company, I have had the unique experience of bringing together two worlds I feel passionate about. The common thread is how do we feel our best each and everyday. The idea behind this blog is to share useful, tried and true, accessible tidbits, to enhance various aspects of life by building balance between the body and the mind.

Dig around and you may be pleasantly surprised to find something which helps smooth the odd bumps in your life’s journey.
Thanks for reading,
Kristina Ivy, Ph.D.
