My work in Osteopathy is to provide clients relief from discomfort, aches and pains so they can get back to doing the things they love. I hold a vision of ultimate health for each client I work with. Osteopathy embodies the mind, body and spirit approach to health and wellness. All three are interrelated and I consider these approaches during treatments.
My own journey to health began many years ago when I experienced aches, pains and non-stop flu like symptoms that led to a short circuit of my internal electrical system. I discovered that my stress, frustration and an internal negative self-dialogue lead to the expression of a serious chronic illness. I was told I had a chronic idiopathic inflammatory disease and that I had it for a long time. To me, there was much more to this predicament and I took it upon myself to find solutions and made changes to lifestyle, including the very scary ones revolving around career, finances and self-identity. I furthered my education and asked for the support I needed. I used all available means at my disposal and refused to allow the diagnosis to become my story. I began to feel better and eventually I was able to get back to the things I love – adventure seeking with my family, hiking, skiing, and mountain biking. I took my life back.
After months of creating new habits and I got back to meaningful activities, I returned for a medical evaluation and I was no longer labeled with my condition. I was ready to get on with life as the next iteration of myself. I want the same Freedom for each and every one of my clients:
Freedom from aches and pains.
Freedom to view stresses differently.
Freedom to do what you love, with those you love.
After I got the green light in my own health, I felt a responsibility to pass it on. I wanted to enlighten others to another way.
