EPISODE 061: Listen to the Voice in Your Gut: Kevin Hartley

This is an episode about trusting your instincts.  Asking yourself questions, and listening to your gut.  Whether you're an atheist, agnostic, or theist, we all know that there is a voice inside us that leads us if we listen.  Kevin's story is about the journey of following that voice and the freedom it will give you.

There are a lot of barriers that try to stop us from listening to our guts.  Religion, ideologies, fear, negativity, politics, logic, even untrustworthy people.  Whether you're someone who naturally follows your instincts, or not, Kevin Hartley's story will encourage you to trust and follow your gut.



Kevin is a Mobile Massage Therapist Serving Seattle/Bellevue to Everett & Ballard Studio.

He specializes in what he calls Fascial Release, similar to Myofascial Release™, but combines several styles together.  Kevin is also a Reiki Master and working that into his work as well.

My personal therapeutic experience with him went far beyond that and I feel that Kevin is a healer in more than just body.
