Helping you navigate the path toward your best health.
In this time of distressing change, allow yourself to soften. Gift yourself with room to grieve, allowing your heart to feel all its tenderness. It helps.
As the shape of our lives changes and we social distance in the face of the pandemic, it brings up a lot of feelings. The root of these feelings is grief, and naming it can help us manage it.
The more stressed our bodies and minds feel, the weaker our immune system becomes. Taking action to reduce stress through integrative care is an effective way to stay healthier and help fight off viruses.
Creating health is not always about how hard we push ourselves. Our bodies also require gentleness. Staying active is important, but so is giving the body opportunities to reconnect, to recover, and to retrain old patterns. Gentle therapies speak to the body in important ways that high energy activities cannot.
Most people experience pain regularly. This pain settles into predictable cycles and informs our daily habits, to the point that we often get used to working around it. We think it is just the price we pay for being active, or getting older, or having kids. This is wrong.
The biggest barrier to treating your pain is how hard you are trying to ignore that it exists.
What keeps you stuck and prevents you from reaching your health goals?
Integrative health care can support you by treating pain, optimizing your relationship with food and exercise, reducing stress, and rebalancing the systems of the body to improve sleep, digestion, and energy levels.
Our health journeys are a process, and setting intentions is a powerful way to create change and transform our health. We are in relationship with our bodies and minds, always learning better ways to support ourselves as we grow and change.
Being generous with yourself is not the same as being selfish. Instead, it allows you to replenish your own spirit, so that you can be more open hearted with others.
Using the interconnection between mind and body, Mind Body Therapy uses daily practice of simple, gentle techniques to effectively treat specific mental and physical health concerns.
