Healing in the 21st Century
Current science is making exciting new discoveries that are fundamentally updating some long-held assumptions and expanding vital new fields of understanding. One thing we know for certain now — a teaching understood since ancient times — is that the body and mind are thoroughly interrelated. What we think and feel has a direct effect on how we experience our health and and life.
Health is not just the absence of disease or pain or other symptoms of dysfunction within us. Health is your whole being operating at an optimal level, generating for you in every day a sense of joy, satisfaction, motivation, and energy. Health is living the quality of life you imagine.
Maintaining health is about maintaining balance. In fact, our bodies are programmed to do just that. Our human system is a display of mass intelligence that somehow organizes function between complex physical, chemical, and energetic processes. A balanced system produces good health (normal function). An unbalanced system produces bad health (dys-function). Our job, should we wish to be healthy, is to acknowledge disruptive factors and change the conditions producing ill health so that the body can restore original function.
What is also true about health is in the fact that every person is unique. We have differing body types, histories, attitudes, and lifestyle habits. What promotes and defines wellness for one does not necessarily do the same for another. Therapies from both within the medical model and outside of it offer a full spectrum of possibilities for assisting the body in healing. Whatever the approach, it is important that therapy be directed at the root cause of illness and imbalance, and not just a treatment of symptoms.
Science in several fields of study have proven conclusively that in order to function at a high level you cannot just treat the physical body, but need to treat the whole person. Your health is affected by your physical, emotional, and mental states at any given time. In fact, it is the very combination of these aspects that are creating your current quality of life right now. It is well known that the biochemical and bioenergetic backdrop of our emotional and mental states directly affect our physical health. In fact, science now proves it is these biochemical and bioenergetic impulses that command and give instruction to the physical self; our bodies respond to the direction it gets from our thoughts and feelings. This "whole systems" understanding must be integrated into a comprehensive approach to restoring full health.
Our goal is to help bring balance to your system and support you as you work with your whole self to reduce pain and restore the quality of life you imagine. With health care costs rising and the uncertain effects of drug and surgery interventions, it is time to take control of your treatment and your health. Through therapy and participation in our programs and workshops, we can help you understand your health from a larger perspective and support you in your healing journey to vibrant health. Our role is to:
•encourage you in taking responsibility for your health and improving your quality of life
•provide therapy that helps you get to the root of pain issues
•provide educational experiences and lifestyle practices so you can learn how to help yourself reduce pain and restore your quality of life
The body is designed to heal itself right down to the instructions at the DNA level of each and every cell. When it gets the support it needs to stay healthy - or accesses cause-oriented therapies when dysfunctional - the body maintains homeostasis and balance, providing the quality of life you imagine for yourself.
