• Why We Eat Too Much (Part One)

• Why We Eat Too Much (Part One)

by Jenn Krebs, N.D. If there is ever a topic which I feel most qualified and least qualified to talk about, it is food addiction.  While so much of my clinical background and experience has focused on the complex relationship we have with our bodies and our food, there are still so many questions I have regarding why we eat…

• Learning from a City as it Begins to Heal

by Jenn Krebs, N.D. As a person whose work centers around the concept of healing, I look at Boston with a broken, heavy heart and a sense of awe.   Amongst the horrific images and the unspeakable loss is the reality of a city and a community doing what it must do … grieve, process and move forward.

by Jenn Krebs, N.D. I’ve been struggling for four years now.   Before having children, exercise was an integral part of my life.   I spent much of my youth and young adulthood dancing every day.  When I eventually stopped dancing, I tried running, weight training, yoga and kickboxing.  All were great workouts, but none of them stuck.  The summer after graduating…

• Our Inner Reflection:
A Mind-Body Look at Self-Image

by Jenn Krebs, N.D. There are very few things in this world that I can say I know are certain.  One thing I can say, without a moment of hesitation, is that spending much of my adolescence and early adulthood in front of a mirror, in tights and a leotard no less, was not a great foundation for a healthy…

• A Different Kind of Chaos Theory

• A Different Kind of Chaos Theory

by Jenn Krebs, N.D. I have had an interest in chaos for quite some time now.  Twenty plus years ago, I wrote my undergraduate thesis on how art, specifically the art of making dance, can grow out of chaos.  I ended my thesis with what at the time seemed a very revolutionary concept to me – how self-growth and self-awareness…
