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


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!


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 outpatient 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.

I'm now fully prepared to build confidence, cut overwhelm, and put together a successful program for my clients.

Laboratory Testing Fundamentals After completing this course, I now have the expertise to assess the reliability of laboratory tests using a critical evaluation methodology. Armed with this knowledge, I can interpret objective health data accurately and provide targeted solutions that address the root causes of my clients' health issues. I'm eager to apply this newfound expertise to enhance the well-being of those I serve.

As a Certified Functional Nutrition Informed Professional (CFNIP), I've completed a comprehensive course that equips me with the expertise to guide you on your journey to optimal health through evidence-based, holistic approaches that actually work. Whether you're struggling with chronic disease or seeking to improve your overall health.

Advanced Course: Primitive Reflex Integration, led by Dr. Karen Pryor, PT, DPT. This certification equips me with specialized skills to address motor delays and neurological challenges through innovative therapeutic approaches. From understanding neuroplasticity to practical applications in therapy, I've gained insights into assessing primitive reflexes' influence on movement patterns and implementing evidence-based techniques for enhanced outcomes. This certification underscores my commitment to providing comprehensive and effective care to those in need.

Spastic Patterns Post-Brain Injury: Utilizing Primitive Reflex Treatment Strategies, led by Dr. Karen Pryor, PT, DPT. I've completed this specialized course focusing on neurological challenges post-cerebral vascular accidents, closed head injuries, or anoxia. By treating the root cause rather than just managing symptoms, I employ neuroplasticity techniques for faster relief. This approach, targeting motor function changes through understanding CNS anatomy, benefits patients experiencing tremors or muscle tone issues to optimize outcomes in these cases.

Primitive Reflexes: A Deeper Look into the Nervous System Pathways, led by Dr. Karen Pryor, PT, DPT. 
This program provided insights into reflex mechanisms and their interactions with the sympathetic nervous system. By understanding these connections, I've learned to enhance treatment outcomes by addressing factors hindering primitive reflex integration. Through this course, I gained skills in evaluating primitive reflexes, understanding their sensory influences, and promoting higher-level skills development. This knowledge enables me to optimize client outcomes effectively.

Primitive Reflex Integration: Testing, Identifying and Demonstrating Patterns, led by Dr. Karen Pryor, PT, DPT. This program equipped me with essential skills to assess primitive reflex patterns in the face and body, identifying abnormalities in the central nervous system that impact cortical function. Through active and passive testing methods, I've learned to differentiate primitive reflexes and integrate rotational patterns to enhance voluntary movement. By observing and documenting these patterns, I'm able to tailor therapy plans effectively, disarming primitive reflex power and promoting optimal movement.
