By evaluating the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect one’s health, I strive to go beyond the treatment of symptoms to address the underlying causes of illness. My goal is to work collaboratively with you, and your other healthcare providers, to not only heal illness and infirmity, but to help you regain and maintain optimum health.
Two people with the same issue, insomnia for example, can have completely different underlying imbalances. And each will likely require very different treatment approaches for resolution. A skilled practitioner must be able to diagnose accurately, and choose the proper treatment for that diagnosis. Still further, he or she must be able to intuit what particular treatment is appropriate for the patient at that moment in time. As a patient heals, treatment must adapt to the changes in their specific signs and symptoms.
Re-Evaluate & Address Emerging Issues
It's not at all unusual for other, often older, issues to surface as a one's initial problem moves closer to resolution. Emerging issues could be physical, or psycho-emotional, or both. Whether or not to address these issues is up to you. But the emergence simply indicates that you're healing, that internal imbalances are being rectified, that you're ready to deal with whatever it is that's coming to the surface. It's definitely not something to fear. To the contrary, it is an opportunity for greater healing.
