Helping people's bodies heal & become whole

Our Approach

Integrated Bodywork Therapy (IBT) is an effective approach to healthcare that utilizes both manual and movement therapy. Functional and structural imbalance is addressed throughout the whole body, with the goal of helping each part work together as a whole. Layers of symptoms (e.g. pain, hindered mobility, numbness/reduced senses, fluid retention, etc.) are reduced or eliminated completely in the process.  

IBT works for all age groups and various severities of client cases. The changes that occur in a session tend to stick since old movement patterns are retrained. To help reinforce the new movement patterns, the client is taught simple techniques to do at home. Every individual is uniquely different, thus every at-home plan is individualized.

Philosophy of Recovery

Based on Ephesians 4:16, the philosophy is:

Holistic - meaning looking at and addressing the whole body instead of just the affected area, as well as taking the soul (mind, will, emotions) and spirit into account. 

Prayerful - knowing that God is the source of true healing and will reveal things and give the wisdom needed to know what steps to take when asked.

Lifestyle - knowing that to help each part function well, lifestyle changes might need to be made to let go of old habits/movement patterns and replace with new ones

Essential Oils

We only use quality essential oils from Young Living brand, and are certified by CARE (Center for Aromatherapy Research & Education) with 72-hours of essential oil education. Classes covered History of oils, Science & Chemistry of oils, Healing Oils of the Bible, Emotional Release, Basic Principles of Aromatherapy, Raindrop Technique, and other Hand-on-Practice and Healing skills with oils - all of which resulted in a CRTS (Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist) certification to ensure proper and advanced technique use of oils on clients. 

What are essential oils?

In essence, essential oils are the "lifeblood" of the plant - made by steaming or pressing various parts of the plant to capture compounds with healing properties.

How are they used?

Can be applied neat (direct skin contact) or combined with carrier oils. Sometimes, a hot towel, warmth from hand, or piezoelectric technique is used to help the oil activate and/or travel deeper in the tissues.

Avazzia Device

From the Avazzia product website:

"[The Avazzia device] produces microcurrent electrical impulses, which are transmitted by electrodes in the device through the skin to communicate with the body’s nervous system. [It is] controlled by a high-performance microcomputer chip, which uses Avazzia proprietary software

These hand-held devices are FDA-cleared for

  • Prescription use for the symptomatic relief and management of chronic, intractable pain and adjunctive treatment in the management of post-surgical and post-traumatic pain (available by prescription only).

  • Over-the-counter use for the temporary relief of pain associated with sore and aching muscles in the shoulder, waist, back, back of the neck, upper extremities (arm), and lower extremities (leg) due to strain from exercise or normal household work activities.

These noninvasive neuro-stimulation devices allow patients to take control of their pain management.

Avazzia BEST (Bio-Electric Stimulation Technology) products feature a tissue reaction response indication, making them superior to traditional TENS units. BEST products work on different neural paths than a traditional TENS."
