Health and wellness is a true gift we all seek. Unfortunately, many seek the quick fix through drugs and medications. I choose the holistic approach for these reasons:
1. We are more than our bodies.
Every human being has a mind, body, and spirit. Each aspect of our being is interwoven with and influences the other aspects of who we are.
2. To heal a part, we need to treat the whole.
When one aspect of our being is out of balance, every other aspect is impacted. For this reason, we must have a holistic, mind-body-spirit approach, when treating any place of dis-ease.
3. To effectively treat the symptoms, we need to address the root causes.
Sometimes emotional distress causes physical pain, and sometimes the reverse is true. By having a bird’s eye view of the whole being, we most effectively can address and resolve a problem spot.
4. The Body is a Sophisticated Pharmacy.
As noted by David Simon, MD – medical director of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing – the most powerful pharmacy is not CVS, Walgreens, or Rite-Aid. It is the human body. In most cases, when we optimize our lifestyle habits and make sure we get rest, care, and nourishment we need, our body’s self-healing mechanism kicks into gear, and we recover from illness.
5. I genuinely care.
With each treatment, I offer not just bodywork, but also compassion, intuition, and a pair of open ears. I feel honored to be invited on the sacred journey of healing and transforming mind, body, and spirit.
