When you subscribe to my newsletter you will receive information and insights gathered from over 25 years of experience in the complementary health field.
I first became interested in the complimentary health field in the early eighties before my daughters were born. Mostly I wanted to have a healthy pregnancy, delivery and baby like most new parents. This was the beginning of a lifelong journey that has led me through many interrelated fields such Herbalism, Holistic Nutrition, Touch for Health, Reiki, Hanna Kroeger Techniques and eventually Osteopathy.
In Osteopathy I found my passion: using a blend of science and art, to connect with the “inner physician” to restore mobility and function to the body. A therapy that truly is holistic in that it recognizes that each person is comprised of a body, mind and spirit and that each of these has to be in balance in order for true health to express itself.
Physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally and energetically, this is where true health is found, in the balance of all aspects of self.
One of the four principles of Osteopathic Manual Therapy, discovered by Andrew Taylor Still, MD over 130 years ago, is that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. He believed that as Osteopaths, once we removed any restriction within the body, the body would and could heal itself. Now the structure and function of the human body hasn’t changed over the years but our lifestyles certainly have. This is why it’s so important to support the entire system.
When we experience pain or discomfort in the body, it’s a sign that something is out of balance.
Everyone needs a strong foundation built with good food, water, movement, thoughts and relationships. We do this for ourselves to be healthy, to live our lives to the fullest, to be present.
Part of that foundation is removing any restrictions that are interfering with the natural function of the body. This needs to be supported with proper nutrition (or fuel), natural movement (the body is wonderfully made to move), a chemical free environment (inside and out), emotional and mental health (loving relationships, a spiritual practice, fulfilling work, etc).
This is what my practice is about: Working with you to help support your body’s expression of health and vitality. Integrating manual therapy, nutrition, herbals and essential oils into a treatment protocol best suited to help you on your journey.
