Ayurvedic Consultations

Ayurveda ConsultationsAyurveda is the science of life and is India’s traditional, natural system of medicine that has been practiced for more than 5,000 years.

Ayurveda emphasizes prevention of disease, rejuvenation of our body systems and quality of life.  The profound premise and promise of Ayurveda is that through certain practices, not only can we prevent heart disease and make our headaches go away, but we can also better understand ourselves and the world around us, live a long and healthy life in balance and harmony, achieve our fullest potential, and express our true inner nature on a daily basis, integrating our spirit in the body.

Colorpuncture

ChakrasColorpuncture uses light frequencies with pure color on the acupuncture points, meridians, marma points, and other points particular to the Colorpuncture system, to heal the cells and systems (endocrine, lymphatic, coordination system, etc) of the body. The name comes from Peter Mandel combining many esoteric and ancient healing methods with Fritz Popp’s understanding of energy and light waves effect on the quantum field.

The treatments come in many forms, from brain wave stimulation and balancing, to treatments in sound and light. The light and color treatments involve the application of colored light to the skin interfering with imbalances in the communication of the photons on a quantum level in the body. There is no use of needles or piercing of the skin. Rather the color sensitivity of acupuncture receptors in the skin is used. The channels are opened and the healing information encoded on the light wave targets the imbalanced cells and dysfunctional organs where it is needed. “Color,” says Mandel, “is life energy carrying information . . . The information heals and the energy carries that information through the cells.”

Cranial Sacral Therapy

The Greek word Soma means body.  Somatic Emotional release work is the use of bodywork to release emotions stored in the tissues due to imbalances or trauma.

All somatic work at Eternal Springs Wellness is focused on rebalancing the client’s wholeness through their mind, body, and spirit.  Using Cranial Sacral Therapy techniques to open the body and connect to its innate wisdom, followed by deeper massage and energy techniques that break up adhesions and re-polymerize the body to its balanced and corrected state.  The mind can view trauma in a much different way than the body imprints it.  Sometimes even when we feel an event is complete or resolved the body will tell the trained therapist otherwise.  Cranial Sacral Therapy helps us tune into the clues the body gives and using our own energy to help realign it to wellness thus releasing any stored emotions .

The body has more connective tissue than any other tissue and that tissue creates a cytoskeleton in the body through which one can work on one part of the body and thus affect change in another part.  We are all one thing and everything is connected.

Energy Clearing

We are receptors of the powerful energies that pass through this world.  If all  is  in  proper order, the negative energy that visits us remains a short while and is gone, leaving  no permanent damage.   There  are however,  some  situations  you just can’t seem to get  past.  That is the result of negative energy leaving  an impression on your personal life force.

Is your life a circle? Are you reliving the same problems over and over. Example:  Failed marriages or relationships, recurring health or career issues.

Have you sought answers to your difficulties and felt like you were not making head way?

Sometimes it is the energy that has been left in a home, land , or workplace that needs to be cleared out for your life to move forward.  Energy is something we all feel and don’t always know how to put into words.  Like the house you don’t feel comfortable in or the work place that is a struggle every day.  Sometimes it comes as unexplained feeling or events . This is when a house clearing or work clearing can be of use to move and shift the energy.  Please call for an appointment.

Exercise & Meditation

Exercise and meditation both help create physical health and a sense of vitality.  Michele works with various personal trainers and yoga teachers to help you find the best balance for your life starting from wherever you are.  She specializes in helping people with previous injuries, mental blocks to exercise and comes from a family where going to the refrigerator was considered exercise, and now has a very serious yoga practice herself and works out with a personal trainer.  Also Michele helps support you in having the best health possible for the whole of your life.  She helps guide people from birth to death – young to old – she works with a lot of people who begin exercise later in life so that their skeletal structure, posture and life is better.

Fertility

FertilityAyurvedic evaluation determines imbalances in the functions of the body and the body-mind connection. In Ayurveda, these imbalances cause many conditions that must be removed if real healing is to occur. Sometimes toxins accumulate in the tissues, lowering the natural resistance of the body’s immune system which can cause poor digestion, pressure on the nervous system and difficulties with fertility.

Stress is certainly a major factor in fertility.  The body will use the best of the body’s cells in the creation of an embryo. So when the body is poorly taken care of, and there is not enough nutritious food, rest, recreation and exercise, then the body will not be a nourishing place for the embryo to grow.

Ayurveda addresses this through nutrition, meditation and yoga. Michele works with doctors and therapists to help the client regain balance in their life through both a holistic and team approach.

House and Office Clearing

The home or office has the ability to capture and hold low vibration and/or negative energy. This adverse energy manifests through low vibration thoughts and ideas and is expressed mentally, physically and/or verbally. Anger, sadness, resentment, fights and arguments, bad thoughts or memories of events or people, hateful or harsh words spoken, etc in the home or office place can gather in the corner and collect dust, grow mold and become a biohazard. Ok, so maybe that explanation is a little over the edge, but this type of energy when trapped can cause discomfort, disharmony, arguments, illnesses, physical symptoms, mental symptoms, emotional symptoms, etc. Once this energy is trapped in this form, all which live or work within this space can be affected by it, creating an endless cycle that continually emits and regenerates this negative energy.  Michele has been asked by several physician groups, surgical centers as well as soccer and exercise centers to clear the energy and is well known for providing this service.

Massage Therapy

These days massage isn’t just for feeling good anymore.  It is a holistic therapy that reduces the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion and increases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.  Your body triples the number of red blood cells, T cells and B cells during a massage.  Therapeutic massage enhances medical treatment and helps people feel more relaxed and alert.  more on Massage Therapy for Health

Pregnancy Massage

An important aid to a pleasant pregnancy experience is pregnancy massage. As your pregnancy progresses and your stomach enlarges, physical aches and pains can be experienced in different parts of your body. Relief from pain can be provided only by massage therapists who specialize in prenatal massages. This type of massage relieves pain because it enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves blood circulation and relieves mental and physical fatigue.

The benefits of pregnancy massage are numerous. Under the stress of pregnancy your body produces stress hormones. These stress hormones are felt not only by you, but also your baby. By reducing your stress through massage, you can increase the comfort level of your unborn baby. Moreover, the massage can ease your muscular aches and pains that may be very uncomfortable, to say the least. Before deciding on massage therapy you should first consult your doctor to make sure that you are suitable for massage. Michele is certified in pregnancy massage and has many years experience working with pregnant women.  For prenatal massage, the massage therapist uses massage techniques which concentrate on a woman’s neck, back and pelvic regions – the areas most often negatively affected by a pregnancy.

Child Massage

Infant massage facilitates the release of soreness due to the birthing experience. As parent and child step into their treatment room, baby is lovingly cared for by his/her own private therapist in a cozy sanctuary of soft, warm blankets and soothing womb sounds. The combination of natural essential oils and gentle touch helps babies feel safer in their bodies, sleep more comfortably, and have less colic difficulties.

Child massage is a calming, aromatherapy treatment that encourages communication and family participation. Always taking the child’s lead, a level of trust is established which aids in the release of tension and stress due to rapid structural development. Long-term effects have proven significant in terms of positive mental and physical growth.

Spiritual Counseling

After years of working with different people, I believe that much of our distress comes from our feeling of being disconnected form our own Spiritual Self and feeling unworthy of love in some way.   Those feelings will breed on themselves whether we are aware of them or not.  Our lack of boundaries and self-love will show in how we deal with our friends, work, and family.   For many of us, it is saying yes when we mean no, doing things we feel will be helpful that turn out not to be, running from or toward conflict, creating drama in our lives and sabotaging any positive outcomes or praise.    Sometimes it shows through addictions to alcohol, food, spending, drugs or unhealthy relationships.  We know we need to eat better and we don’t.  We know  we need to exercise and we don’t.   We look in the mirror and hear criticism  about how we look, who we are, what we weigh, how old we look.   Yet, we want others to love us magically and unconditionally.   We close our hearts waiting for you to open up first.  If any of this sounds like what goes on in your life, I can help you release it.   All of these thoughts are programs that run for many different reasons and yet none of them will give you happiness or the life you want.  I help people reprogram their neurons , release trauma and heal themselves into the Spiritual Being that they were born to be.  please know that I am talking of your Spirit not religion in any way, I honor different religious traditions.

Stress Management

The American Medical Association stated that stress is the cause of 80 to 85 percent of all human illness and disease or at the very least has a detrimental effect on our health.  American Business loses an estimated $200-$300 billion dollars per year to stress related productivity loss and other costs.  To put this in perspective, this amount is higher than the total cost related to all strikes and the net profit from all Fortune 500 companies!

Stress accelerates aging.  Stress speeds up your entire system and produces conditions in younger people that are more commonly associated with growing old.  Virtually no part of your body can escape the ravages of stress.  Studies show that stress can reduce the power of our immune systems.  There’s evidence that it can increase your risk of more serious problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and brain dysfunction.

Eternal Springs Wellness compliments traditional medicine and works in tandem with physicians to support and enhance any treatment protocol you are currently utilizing.  Our goal is to assist you in living your life more harmoniously.

Trauma Release

Miraculous BrainWhen you experience a traumatic event, your brain gets re-wired.  Thereafter, any time  a situation or thought triggers you, your mind, body and emotions re-experience the same traumatic feelings and mental turmoil.  I work with your body to release these neurological imprints and bring you back to a state of peace and wholeness.

Weight Loss

In Ayurveda, underweight and overweight are signs that the vata, pitta, and kapha systems are out of balance. This can happen irrespective of how much or how little food you eat. Weight control problems happen when your food intake is not balanced by a proper digestion or metabolism.

Overweight or obesity is mostly found in people with predominantly kapha-type constitutions. This dosha is composed of water and earth. When it is imbalanced, the heavy characteristics of these elements become exaggerated.

However, obesity can be found in people with the other two doshas also. For example, people with pitta dosha are generally of medium build. But they can suffer from poor digestion if their digestive fire is too low because they have burned themselves out. As a result, food isn’t processed properly, and that, in turn, can result in weight gain or obesity.

For people with vata dosha the problem, generally, is that of underweight rather than overweight. They cannot properly absorb nutrients. However, they can become overweight when imbalanced if they attempt to eat sweet or oily foods in an attempt to calm their vata imbalance.

The Ayurvedic approach to achieving your ideal weight is based on taking a realistic look at your body type and what it can be, and then nourishing it back to natural health. It is about getting to know your body and becoming in tune with its rhythms.
