I am asked this question often. While I can answer you with the basic benefits of the different modalities that I offer, I can't say how you, as an individual, will benefit. You are unique!
As a human being you have a natural instinct to protect yourself from harm. Your brain, through sight and hearing, stays alert to anything or situation that may be harmful. With exposure to stress, trauma and feeling unsafe, your nervous system can become somewhat stuck in protection and survival mode, even if there is no real threat.
Holistic modalities have the common understanding that the mind, body and spirit interact with each other and are integrally linked in our sense of well-being. All aspects of your being work in partnership for your highest good.
As a business owner it is really helpful to look back at the numbers from the past year to see where things have improved and where they may need some adjusting. As a Holistic Health Practitioner, while numbers are important, I look more closely at what clients mentioned the most in what was going on for them and which therapies they said were the most helpful. It's always interesting. It also often means that the numbers experiencing those issues are likely higher...you don't tell me everything, neither do you need to.
While my previous blog (click here) describes my holistic approach to your sessions, it doesn't include the most important part - meeting you where you are.
I understand that each person has their own view of what is holistically healthy for them. What holistic health means to you will be unique to your understanding and how you choose to implement it in your life journey. Your view will be as unique as you are.
You will see the term “holistic approach” all over my website, social media and blogs. It is the approach I take to all of the sessions I offer and how they may impact you on the day that you’re receiving them.
Yes, therapists get injured as well and we often go through the same steps that we ask clients to take. Here is the step by step of how I am healing 3 sprained ankle ligaments, and would suggest to clients as a plan, for between visits.
During a Yin Yoga session poses are held for a longer period of time in order to benefit, stretch and open the deeper muscles and fascia. Fascia alone needs a minimum of 90 to 120 seconds to begin to release during a stretch. Taking time to allow the fascia to stretch is essential to maintaining flexibility, range of motion and overall holistic well-being.
When a belief, relationship, physical item, etc. are held on to, part of your energy is held in the past, when you were first given the item, the relationship started or the belief was taught. If the associated memories are positive then you feel good when thinking about the past, and that energy of feeling good brings positive thoughts into your now. Where your energy belongs.
