INTEGRATIVE WELLNESS THERAPY™

THE THERAPEUTIC METHOD

Blending Western Therapy with Complementary Techniques

WHAT? Our well-researched method and philosophy takes the concepts of “holistic” and “biopsychosocial” to a deeper, broader level of wellness. This fresh style of intervention joins: traditional therapy practices, gentle body work, neuromuscular facilitation, therapeutic yoga, lifestyle coaching, mindfulness, meditation, self-awareness, spirituality, self-compassion as well as the individual’s meaning and purpose in life.

WHO? For your child, your parent or yourself — our individualized and comprehensive treatment sessions bring a unique approach to therapy. Our therapists (Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Yoga Therapy, Psychology Therapy, and Social Work) honor the inseparable nature of the human system and each body's inherent wisdom in restoring balance.

WHY? The result is a program rooted in the individual's own nature, manifested through personal and intrinsic motivation, brought to fruition through guided support to provide:

Empowering solutions ~ Achieve meaningful improvements ~ Doing what you want and need to do in daily life
