Kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending pottery with gold or silver, brings about the meaningful understanding that a crack is not necessarily a flaw. Rather, it is a meaningful and respected part of the history of the object. These objects are considered more beautiful and valuable because of their transformation. We are ready to hear your story and provide a positive environment for healing, so you, too, can experience transformation!

“I met Jesse in 2014 when he was teaching speed and agility at Body Zone to my girls when they were 9 and 13. He was so in tune with their form and making sure they were doing the drills properly. When he left and started personal training it was a no brainer that we would follow him wherever he went. For the past 5 years my girls have been with him and he has truly become part of our family. My husband and I are so blessed to have him in our lives. We know that when our girls are performing at their best, that he has had a major role in that. Jesse supports our girls at soccer games and track and cross country meets. I even use him to stretch my girls for cross country at Wyomissing High School. We appreciate all Jesse has done with our girls and will continue to follow him in his next adventure.”
“Whitney was more than helpful in helping me prepare for my first half and full Ironman. She first pointed out issues to address that would allow me to properly absorb nutrients, and then helped me to make those specific changes to my diet. As a result I had more energy for training and gained more lean muscle mass than I ever have in the past. I was successful in both events (including placing 5th in my AG in my first half Iron and 18th in my first full). The help she has continued to provide allows me to be much more aware of how my body responds to what I consume, allowing me to fuel in the best ways that I can. Overall I can’t say enough about what working with her has helped me to do both performance-wise and on an everyday nutrition level.”
“Gabby and the concepts outlined for Trauma Touch have catalyzed the return of my executive function. There was nothing I wanted back more than my “self” and for most of my life, I had believed it to be a far fetched idea to believe that I could recover myself from the decade and a half of self hatred that followed my trauma. 3 months into the program I could not yet dream, But I found that that I could dance! It was unexpected and spontaneous. It is human to dance. Connecting to my body has evolved from a terrifying prospect through a desperate attempt with which I found safety to a space in which I am empowered to create my existence. This was the most costly intrinsic human characteristic I lost when I was raped: my freedom to imagine a world that was better. All my creative juices had been stolen, I recovered this life blood. The energy of creation never left, but without the freedom to imagine a world that is better than the one I existed in, I perpetuated my misery through destructive choices. Today I still am human; I make mistakes and dance through them. I utilize tools like “give yourself a do-over” and “take ownership of all parts” daily; this is, indeed, a good time to be me.”
