Written by Dr. Daniel Kimbley

Let's talk about sex. That's right, I said it. SEX.

One of our clients who started seeing us back in March stormed into our office, and he was raving. Not raving mad, just very fired up, and he had an interesting question for us.

Written by Dr. Daniel Kimbley

What big changes are you looking to make in your life? Is it a different job, a move to a new city, or learning a new skill?

An Investment With 100 Percent Returns


Written By Dr. Daniel Kimbley

Growing up I used to think that if someone was an investor, then they put their money into the stock market and watched it grow.

Sick, Fit People


Written by Dr. Daniel Kimbley

We have all seen them in the gym, in the yoga studio or in cycling clubs. The person who looks fit: has toned arms, shredded legs and probably has a 6-pack under their gym clothes.
