Welcome

Thank you for taking interest in Eclectic Healing Guide

If you are like me,  you love to journey, whether it is out of the country,  within your state, or  within your body. When it comes to  journeying with another it is always a good idea to take time to check in and make sure you understand the other’s language, have the same guide books and maps.

By landing here you have already met one of the most important guides on this journey my virtual office.  My virtual receptionist consist of this website and my scheduler Fullslate. These two guides will be able to answer pretty much all of your questions and schedule your appointments 24/7. Please take the time to travel through this website. There is a lot of value information that can enhance your massage experience before you even walk through the door.

Our Journey begins with a name. Most people wonder why I selected my business name and what it has to do with their massage.

 What do you think about when you read Eclectic?

By definition Eclectic means:
  1. selecting what appears to be best in various  doctrines, methods, or styles
  2. composed of elements drawn from various sources; also : heterogeneous
What Elecetic means to  you and your massage then is:
To serve you in the best way possible I want to meet you where you are in your life and the stage of your well-being. By having many tools in my massage tool bag we can select what we deem best from various massage styles, methods and doctrines.  The technique we come up with for your massage session will more than likely be composed of elements drawn from various sources depending on your need that day. We could utilize more science based methods, or eastern philosophies or energetic practices at any given point during your session.
The next word I selected was Healing.
What is your understanding Healing?

By definition to Heal means:
  1. to become free from injury or disease :  to return to a sound  or whole state
  2. to cause (an undesirable condition) to be overcome
  3.  to patch up or correct (a breach or division)
  4. to restore to original purity or integrity
It is my strong belief that only we can truly heal ourselves.  You can seek and gain aid from an outside source when you need help cutting something out of your body or setting a broken bone. It is true you can not do everything on your own, sometimes you need an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry  on during a time of transition or transformation. I know all to well I can not reach all of my muscles with my own hands.  Each of us can serve as an example of how to be a self healer yet we can not heal another. Our healing journey always starts with taking the first step to seek within consciously or unconsciously. When you come to receive massage from me, you are seeking to find the healer within,  from a person who has done much self healing and can hold space for you to do the same.
Finally we come to Guide.
What do you think of when you read the word Guide?

 

By definition Guide means:
  1.  one that leads or directs another’s way
  2.  a person who exhibits and explains points of interest
  3.  something /someone that provides a person with information
  4.  a person who directs another’s conduct or course of action
As we journey to connect deeper with our inner healer we sometimes need more, new or lost information. Sometimes we need an outside source to help us redefine our way of doing things, or we need someone to shed light on an area we have not been able to see. Through my life experience and extensive studies in the areas of body work and energetic practices I can serve as that outside source. Together as a team we can create a path to your ideal healing journey.

Now that we have a starting point for the language we will be using as we journey together let’s explore who you are at this moment and how I can be in service to you.

  • Are you feeling pretty good overall yet you are weighed down by your TO DO LIST?

As soon as you open your eyes you are off and running to start checking off things on that list.  You make breakfast, eating it as  you run out the door, hop on the road to get to work or take the kids to school,  then off to your job. The lunch break arrives and you are off to grab some lunch while running to get a couple errands checked off the list.  Back at work the  clock finally hits the hour to head home but first you have to pick up the kids and get them to their activities. You grab some dinner in there somewhere as fast as possible then back to get the kids home to start homework. Now everyone is in bed and you have time to get caught up on your household chores or the last couple emails you didn’t finish at work. Finally it’s time for a shower and you fall into bed. Phew! What a day.
After reading this I bet you are thinking about

Often for most of us we are Doing more than we are Being. How often during your week do you take time to just sit and Be you?
Now is the time to put you at the top our your list and take a respite.   We can use warming boots and mitts, essential oils or just relaxing, gentle massage to help you take a day time nap and experience a mini vacation.  Let’s  provide you with An Hour to BE YOU again.

  • Are you trying TO DO all you can to stay healthy yet you still feel like you need a break from your healthy living routine?
You wake up and get your green smoothie made and drink it down. You head off to work and hit it out of the park impressing the higher ups. You take time for a quick salad and a run at lunch time. Then back to work to finish out the day like a champ. Then off to the gym to do Cross Fit, Pilates or Yoga.  This is the day you really want to kill it at the gym only to pull a muslce and start the pain loop which leads to needing a couple days for your muscles to recover. Finally you hit the bed but you just can’t turn your brain off  or relax out of the pain to get a good nights sleep. Phew, what a week.

 

Could there be something missing in your healthy routine? Could more than the gym be causing the pulled muscles? Let’s take your healthy routine to the next level by feeling out the source of the pain and misalignment. To do this we must slow you down so you can hear, learn and understand what your body is truly telling you about being well and fit.  One massage idea for the active person is Thai massage.
Check out the re-alignment package  for your next level healthy routine.

  • Are you doing the business travele circuit where you are in an airport at least once a month and you just can’t get your body on any kind of regular schedule?
You can’t eat the way you really want to get that weight off and even if you could the stress from meeting those business deadlines and all the travel just keeps the weight on – no matter what. You get some workouts in but they just seem to add to the stress and often cause more aches and pains. You start to get short with your family & friends because you are not eating, sleeping or taking time for yourself.  Phew,  what a month.

Let’s not let another month go by without getting  your stress under control.   We can start to dive deep into developing life long action plans to utilize at any point to bring equilibrium back into your life and shift any situation into a state of harmony. We can do this by co-creating your body-centered program that starts on the massage table and goes beyond with off the table guidance as well.  Your action plan could include guided mediation or video tutorials on breath work or posture awareness, to name a few options. Check out this video.
