|Welcome! I am a licenced doctor of Naprapathy practicing in Chicago, IL and Santa Fe, NM, as well as healing with Reiki energy. Additionally, I enjoy consulting as a Health Coach virtually or via phone. Using Naprapathy I re-align and adjust skeletal and soft tissue imbalances in the body which cause pain.
We have a myriad of stressful influences in our fast-paced lives. Our society encourages constant availability. We are always accessible, our energy is spread into many facets, a great deal is asked of us and we expect a great deal from ourselves. A session with me is an opportunity to re-examine your lifestyle and co-create a path to wellness. Some questions might incude: How am I finding my center during stressful situations? What food and activity choices do I make when I'm feeling stress? What are my top six priorities? How much of my attention is spent lamenting past or worrying for the future? Taking the time to find your center - your core strength - helps you remember the answer to those questions. It helps to return to your goals, set new ones, and re-evaluate which activities and thoughts in your life propel you toward those goals (toward contentment) and which veer you away (potential stress source).
Some examples of what we cover during a session are these: We now know, through scientific research, one of the major causes of illness, disease and pain is stress. Lowering stress is crucial to healing and health. Another example is food choices. Research also has proven that certain toxic substances in our daily environment and food intake can cause many physiological imbalances which lead to the major diseases of our time. During a session we will discuss your food intake and begin a plan that would work with your particular schedule and lifestyle. Another part of our discussion might be where you feel discomfort in your life so we can think about physical changes, potentially ergonomic or stretches/exercises that may help. I will also place some emphasis on facilitating the shifts needed and resources available to you for your movement toward intentional peace and ease in life. My many years of practice has proven to help my patients become more productive and increase their level of overall happiness.
Begin today taking care of yourself! Take some slow, deep breaths and attune your energy with intention. We are connected entirely - Mind, Body, Spirit. Through guided visualization, new food and nutrition choices, the energy of reiki, and intuitive indigenous medicine, I aid patients in reconnecting to peace and learning the tools to use to reduce stress which ultimately creates whole health.
