Frequently Asked Questions


A holistic approach to wellness is different than a medical approach. While the traditional medical approach sees you as body parts and often uses drugs, which usually doesn’t get to the cause of the illness. The holistic approach sees your body as a whole and that lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, experiences, and environment are connected to your physical health. When one practices holistic healing arts regularly one taps into the ancient wisdom of that modality and purify the issues within all aspects of ourselves, then true healing can occur and wellness can be sustained. A holistic approach often involves deep work on yourself for true lasting healing to occur. True healing takes time and cannot be rushed, there is no magic pill or modality that can instantly cure you of your diss-ease. I may take a change in perception with an opened mind, change in lifestyle, detoxing your mind body and spirit, and practicing of modilaies for true lasting healing to take place. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired and ready to work on yourself to bring true healing then I would be honored to work with you.
