The Mind Body Connection
It is now well documented and accepted by mainstream medicine that negative stress can, and does cause illness and disease. In fact, the medical profession has at last agreed that the body and mind are synchronized. Scientists have demonstrated in ground-breaking research how our thoughts can actually alter the shape of our basic DNA. Previously thought “nonsense” is now accepted science.
Within 8 seconds of experiencing a perceived fearful stressor, our bodies go into flight/fight mode with every cell being flooded with adreno cortisol (the stress hormones). Every organ in the body is thus affected. Our mammalian systems are remarkably well programmed to absorb occasional stress. However, sustained negative stress i.e. fears, can and will eventually cause a breakdown of the immune system and eventually lead to disease.
Your Body however is a remarkable “machine”. If it is “in tune”, it can manufacture the natural chemicals to keep your body 100% healthy. It can even formulate its very own Valium, and it's all quite legal!
Negative stress or fear causes your system to be flooded with nor adrenaline and cortisol, chemicals which damage your system. Whereas feelings of joy and exhilaration will naturally stimulate and manufacture all kinds of healing chemicals synchronistically in your body, leaving no need for antibiotics, narcotics etc. Amazingly, your body’s immune system will even make its own Interleukin, used to treat certain cancers, without any of the dreaded side effects possible from the chemically derived product.
The mind body is just that “a mindbody”. If you attend to your thoughts you will influence your body and if you attend to your body you will influence your mind. You really can heal your own body.
A Typical Treatment
Although called a typical treatment every person is unique, your life story and your physical, emotional, and spiritual response to life experiences renders each experience different. On a presenting level, we are separate and unique. It is only when taken to a deeper level we see we are inexplicably one.
An initial session lasts approximately two hours. That may perhaps seem a long time, but most people find that the time flies by. The first hour is critical to a fulfilling session as it is here that I, supported by my eclectic training and sharing with you, will uncover all the areas, both conscious and unconscious, that require healing. Somewhere in your past lies the root of your dis-ease in the present. Moving towards wholeness can allow you feel a deep sense of peace within, and renew your love for self and others.
I gently take your bare feet in my hands. It is through this “physical” contact that I awaken a deep connection, not only on a physical level, but allow you to access to a much higher level of consciousness and subsequent awareness.
As I work, you will feel various sensations at the point(s) in your body where an energy block, stemming from a previous emotional or physical injury or habitual negative thinking may be present. Exceptions, and there are few, exist when someone is so tense or depressed that they can be out of touch with the body. The majority, however, will feel changes occurring as we work together. You will receive precisely what you are open and ready for.
You may experience the work on a physical level. You decide. You can reach peacefulness during the process which at times allows you to raise the level of your consciousness enabling you to connect on a spiritual realm. You decide.
Whatever you decide, the end result is peace.
Whether your presenting problem is physical, emotional or spiritual, peace rests in your hands. I make no apologies for an absence of theoretical knowledge to support the sometimes amazing experiences during this process. I am consciously out of the driver’s seat. God is the driver with you.
