Welcome to Taum's world.

My sister brought this to my attention and it felt important.

Should I be repeating information you already have, then it simply confirms what you know.





I have been busy trying to understand the COVID-19.

Here are 2 things I know:

  1. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered virus.
  2. Our immune system is our built-in defense mechanism.

My goal is to be sharing information pertinent and hopefully helpful. The Lumbar stretch is useful for supporting our immune system. I am updating the video to clarify:-)


There is some pretty weird stuff floating around, some of it can make sense and be useful, some not. My intention here is to share what I believe is worth looking into.

Stay tuned:-)


Thoughts on Lymphatic Management©

While western medicine 'discovered' the lymphatic system nearly 400 years ago, eastern medicine appears to have been recognizing and working with the lymphatic system for centuries. The development and function of this system and how the lymphatic system participates within disease pathogenesis is still in the process of being well understood when considered via the western approach... Lauren's approach and protocols help fill in some of those gaps.

The benefits of stimulating intestinal health via manual therapy have been proven countless times. Taum's Lymphatic class recognizes and respects the intestinal/visceral components within the lymphatic system. With that consideration in mind, we begin class focusing on refining your 'tactile tools' for encouraging healthy balance and homeostasis within the abdominal and digestive region. These visceral tools are amazingly effective and efficient. Taums lymphatic class will enhance your understanding and appreciation for how handy they can be for helping your clients on a daily basis.

Along the way, I have learned that the nerves and muscle tissue that maintain balance in the 7th cervical region influence our skin. I have seen psoriasis in the hand region decrease quickly after rebalancing the upper back and neck.

Can you see a difference?

My offerings include fundamental objectives:

  • Participants will add efficient and effective manual techniques and protocols to their tactile toolbox.
  • Those tools will be understandable, pertinent, and available.


Intention and imagination (Taum's UN-edited article published in the July 2002 issue of Massage Magazine.)


  The following videos are related to my Manual Lymphatic Drainage class.
Considering there is soooo much more to this class than Manual Lymphatic Drainage... I am warming to the idea of renaming the class 'Lymphatic Management.'

 Why is visceral balance important?


Why is working in the abdomen important?

Lisa took Taum's Lymphatic class once...


This is a testament to the efficiency and power of Lauren's work.




My intention is to share what I find to be thought-provoking, exciting, inspiring, and hopefully... entertaining.

My avenues for sharing include occasional entries here as well as my online/live classes, and my self-help section.


  • 40+years of striving to understand and aid the human body in sustaining a state of healthy balance.
  • 40+years of encouraging each client's personal state of pain-free healthy balance.
  • Sometimes our route wanders outside recognized conventional paths.
  • Often those unconventional paths prove themselves very successful.
