For the last five years I have worked in spirit along side many other New Orleanians working to put things back together post Katrina. Although the road is long and the terrain rather ruthless--New Orleanians persevere. My good friend and mentor once said to me, "Tough times don't last but tough people do." I would like to dedicate the opening of my center to those tough people who are still persevering and to my friends, patients, and family who have supported me through my own journey.

Sleep is a basic physiological need. And an important part of any plan for a healthy lifestyle.
