Is it for you? Ask yourself this:

What would you be doing right now if you had the exact amount of strength and vitality you need to accomplish all your goals? What do patience, creativity, stamina, empathy, compassion, ingenuity, focus and discipline have in common with effective communication, the ability to delegate, confidence, commitment, a positive attitude and spot-on intuition? These are traits that everyone who has something important to do in the world wants to cultivate, and they all require mental and emotional strength and vitality.

Do you have the energy to live up to your true potential?


In a 2015 Forbes article, Kathy Caprino points to the top 5 reasons that professionals hate their jobs. Her conclusion was that people “know what they don’t want, but have no idea what they do want or how to get it.”


The Child Development Institute’s Parenting 101 – Tips for Parents article has a long list of things we should do to teach kids self-discipline, including rewarding positive behavior, using friendly but firm communication and developing non-verbal gestures.

Romantic Relationships

Being willing to learn from one another, being comfortable being alone and embracing ordinariness were all part of Lynn Newman’s Tiny Buddha article “10 Ways to Create A Strong And Intimate Relationship.”
Many of us are highly passionate about one or more of these things. And all the information we need to succeed is right at our fingertips. So, what keeps us from operating at an extremely high level when it comes to the things we value so much? We run out of mental and physical juice! We no longer have access to our true capacity for mental and physical strength and vitality.


  • The capacity of an object or substance to withstand great force or pressure
  • Emotional or mental qualities necessary to deal with situations or events that are distressing or difficult


  • Exuberant physical strength or mental vigor
  • Capacity for survival or for the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence

You see, the answer to the life experience so many people tell me they would all love to have is simple and right in front of us.  But the catch is that simple doesn’t always mean easy.

Looking for Natural Pain Relief? Relievin' Pain Is Cara-Michele’s Passion | Strength & Vitality Wellness Center | Baltimore, MD

Who is Cara-Michele?

I am a woman on a mission to find out how little it takes to feel strong and full of vitality most days of our lives. As an owner and primary practitioner of a growing wellness center and lead adult and children’s instructor of a martial arts dojo, wife, daughter, sister and friend, I know the physical and mental demands of striving to give as much as I can to everyone and everything that matters.

I am 5 feet 4 inches and have weighed as much as 190 lbs. in my adult life. In my early 30s, a severe back injury kept me from walking at all and then from walking long distances without pain for a few years. I know what it’s like to have my body fail. Over the years, I have poured myself into learning and trying diets, eating plans, exercise — you name it — so that I could heal myself and learn how to best help my clients.

Today at 170 lbs. I feel great. I work longer hours with more focus and clarity than ever. Yes, I could lose a few more pounds and at times I dabble at it. When I’m stressed, my cortisol levels rise and I weigh more. During smoother times I weigh less. Truth be told, the numbers are not my number one priority. Right now, I’m easing out of a really busy time, and even though the scale still says 170, I’m fitting into pants that I could not have fit in 3 months ago. My big priority is being fully present in my life, and I love having the energy to do that.

I believe that our true potential can only be accessed when we have a vessel — our body and brain — capable of wielding it. In other words, only when we feel really well can we do really well.

In my quest to learn as much as I can, I have earned a Master’s degree in Acupuncture, a certification in Whole Food Nutrition with over 200 hours of nutrition training, and a certification in Personal Training. These degrees and certificates are useful, but I think what allows me to be most useful is all of the one-on-one hours I have spent with hundreds of clients wanting to get the most out of their lives.
