Shawna Cale is an author, speaker, physical therapist, entrepreneur, life coach, and holistic health practitioner.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I am a woman, wife, mom, daughter, friend, and leader that loves Jesus. I love to dress up and feel beautiful and also dress down—take off my shoes and walk in the grass. 

I love traveling around the world seeing God's beautiful creations and looking for an adventure on the way: like jumping off waterfalls, out of an airplane, swimming with sea lions and sharks—okay, swimming with sharks was never on my bucket list, and once was enough, but it proves I will do just about anything once. 

I love to walk, hike, read, sit on a beach soaking up the sun and I am a lifelong learner that loves anything related to health and wellness.

Most of all, I love living an exceptional life of less stress and more energy to do ALL the things I love to do!

MY HEART

I married my college sweetheart Kevin in 1992, graduated from physical therapy school in 1993, and have three beautiful children—my childhood dream come true. I have worked with thousands of people over my career helping them reach their health goals. My husband and I are entrepreneurs. We co-owned an out-patient physical therapy clinic while our children were young and built a home-based business as they grew to spend more time with our family, homeschooling, and the freedom to travel.

I love to help people connect the dots on how the whole being heals. I have dedicated my life to learning about health and wrote a book Bye Bye Normal Hello Exceptional: Living a Life of Less Stress and More Energy! where I share in Part 1: My Story and in Part 2: The Roadmap so others too can experience a life of gratitude, hope, love, forgiveness, and living a life doing the things they love to do.

Certified Life Coach, LCTI 
    Life Coach Training Institute trains that coaching starts from the heart. Life coaching is an intentional relationship where a coach supports a client in developing vision and goals for their life and uses multiple strategies to empower the client to use their personal power to discover their own solutions. My goal as a Life Coach is to help every woman I work with see their potential and the real change that can occur in their lives as they take responsibility for their choices, fulfill their potential and reach their goals as I challenge, stretch, push, and hold them accountable all the while communicating an affirmation of "I believe in YOU!  You are a Winner! You are Exceptional!"

Certified through International Coach Federation (ICF) and International Association of Certified Coaches (IACC).

Healing Touch
    Healing Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, heart-centered energy therapy that uses gentle, intentional touch that helps balance spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. Healing Touch is a collection of standardized, noninvasive techniques that clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields. Healing Touch helps create a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with standard medical care. Research suggests Healing Touch is beneficial in reducing stress, calming anxiety and reducing symptoms of depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, deepening spiritual connection, supporting cancer care, and supporting resiliency.
