WELL CARE EVALUATION: Well Care, sometimes referred to as Holistic Health, is where science and caring merge. This approach to caring for your health emphasizes the study of all aspects of a person’s health, including physical, psychological, social, economic and cultural factors.  Stressing a personal responsibility for health, the holistic approach may include both conventional medicine and various non-traditional methods. When the body presents with symptoms, a holistic practitioner seeks to perceive an imbalance of some sort. A whole body approach is considered as a potential contributing factor or a combination of factors. 

Foods that we eat, thoughts that we think, skin care and cleaning products that we use, medications, nutritional supplements, environmental exposures and exercise all play a part in how our body is responding. The practitioner’s education has taught them that the body has built-in healing mechanisms, given the proper rest, nutrition and attitude. 

A good practitioner understands that the key to good health is prevention and takes on the role of educator, to teach their clients key information about nutrition, fitness and detoxification.  When the body is out of balance, the practitioner assists the client in investigating possibilities of imbalances and makes suggestions to alternative therapies that may be beneficial.  

Allopathic Western Medicine is not ignored or rejected but is not seen as the only effective therapies.  Most individuals incorporate at least some natural therapies or techniques into their lifestyle with profound enhancements.  You may pick and chose which ones are most rewarding and beneficial for you.

Some of the most common co-existing conditions of obesity or excess weight include: food cravings, sleep dysfunctions, pain, headaches and fatigue. By addressing these naturally, losing weight is more effortless.

MASSAGE THERAPY: So often when people hear massage therapy, they envision a spa like setting and pampering. We do pamper our clients, but make no mistake, massage is therapeutic! The muscles and tendons of the body tighten and knot to the point of dysfunction and the manual manipulation of massage is highly effective in restoring blood flow to those areas of pain, stiffness and soreness. Your Massage Evaluation provides the opportunity to document structural areas of discomfort and allow you to experience first hand the benefits of massage, if you have not in the past.

METABOLIC HEALING PROGRAM: This plan is designed to help the body to heal from the symptoms that were caused by food, by removing foods that damage the body and replacing with foods that heal the body.  Most people begin to incorporate this program within the first three weeks. When consuming the wrong food causes symptoms, it makes sense that changing to eating the right foods is the answer. In particular, this protocol focuses on allowing the body to rest and heal the insulin receptors, that are negatively affected by high sugar, carbohydrate and chemical diets. This is not a low calorie diet, this is a nutrient dense diet that provides the body with the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and fat to turn on the bodies only mechanism to burn fat.  

Did you know that the human body was created to store fat / energy for times of famine, but it was never created to lose weight naturally? The Metabolic Program is a scientific approach to burning fat, while maintaining muscle mass. It is important to maintain or even build muscle mass in order to maintain weight loss! Weight is lost from the top of the body down through the abdomen; and, averages 2-7 lbs per week. Most people lose all of their weight with this program!
