Balancing all aspects of wellness

We have a unique ability to work on helping people connect the mind with the body. We offers personal and group sessions to assist people in eliminating old behavioral patterns and fears and to guide them towards new pathways of self growth and transformation. Below is an idea of the wellness components we strive to focus on with each individual. We even can develop personal wellness programs using environmental elements that assist with altering nervous system function.

Our society today has had a very narrow perspective of the definition of health. Our lack of a more widened focus views healthy individuals as being absent of disease. Individuals, born with or acquiring some sort of disability throughout their lifetime, are often less supported and viewed as present with disease. The history of companies face today when they design wellness programs and initiate health care and dental programs for their employees. Is someone disabled if they are physically handicapped or is disability in the workplace extending to those who acquire ADHD, depression, and eating disorders. Are these companies providing or creating venues that are cost effective eventually in the long run? Once business owners and members in the health care industry recognize and accept that health is not static but a dynamic, changing, and multi factorial shifting on a continuum during a persons journey through life, they will find it easier to understand how a person with a disability can improve or worsen his or her health in the same manner as everyone else. The only difference is that people with disabilities are more susceptible to secondary health conditions.

“A Journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”


It is difficult for people with disabilities or not, to be fully embodied or disease free throughout our lifetime. Specific attention to prevention strategies for people with disabilities is arising and need attention. Times are changing and are paradigm of thinking is changing as well. Health Care professionals are starting to look deeply at the cause of our problems without running to diagnose and treat. Overall wellness is in our future, so how do we get there?
