I have come to believe that the healing process
is a partnership between patient and physician.
I want to help you to more thoroughly
understand your condition, and facilitate
the most optimal healing process for you. By
re-integrating body, emotions, mind, and spirit,
my intention is for you to breathe more deeply,
walk your path with grace and ease, and
find more joy in every aspect of living.
the body's natural wisdom
Illness and "disease" are the body's way of informing us of imbalances in our system,
often signaling the need to identify aspects of our body, mind and spirit that need
support and healing. If symptoms alone are treated or masked, the body's wisdom is
ignored and the imbalance usually finds another outlet of expression. Every symptom
or discomfort you have, no matter how unrelated or insignificant it may seem, offers
insight towards creating an integrated and effective plan for you.
The following are a sampling of issues that respond well to my approach:
· Strengthening immunity
and fighting infections
· Alleviating stress, anxiety,
· Balancing hormones
· Supporting major life
· Determining the best foods
· Regulating digestion,
assimilation, and elimination
· Supporting recovery from
injuries and surgeries
· Relieving allergies and
· Easing pain and suffering
· Facilitating seasonal tune-ups
life purpose and passion
Living our lives with passion and
purpose is the ultimate expression of
who we truly are. There are times, at
any age, when we need to break down
or to "fall apart" before we can come
together in a new way. In the process,
we begin to learn the essential balance
between yin and yang. This is the
art of living. By becoming more
comfortable in the "inbetween space"
and opening to the body's natural
wisdom, we discover new ways to
become whole, vital, and alive.
