WellBEing Resource • 2012 Edition

As we move through 2012, a shift is taking place in humanity’s depth, potential and consciousness. Anything no longer needed for this evolutionary process is falling away, making space for positive, creative expansion. There are so many amazing local resources here to assist in this process from natural healing practitioners, guides for self growth & realization, classes, workshops, trainings, nearby beautiful retreats, and so much more! It is my true joy to provide WellBEing Resource, this print guide and website, plus online community calendar of events. I hope you’ll join me in exploring the vast number of incredible resources for a heightened state of WellBEing. Enjoy! Ginger Marie Photography

If so, consider Neural Organization Technique (N.O.T.), a non-invasive and safe approach. N.O.T. is a treatment protocol utilizing applied kinesiology, chiropractic manipulation, and sacro-occipital and cranial techniques. Every step is demonstrable, repeatable, predictable, and therefore, neurologically correct. N.O.T. is designed to correct conditions, not manage them. When systems are corrected and neurologic integrity is established in the body, the patient can run his body much more efficiently.

Marijane Bardsley, DC ~ Clear Spine Chiropractic 916-486-8806 In my 20 years experience in practice, I address healing from many different directions. My training and expertise in gentle spinal adjusting uses a subtle touch to restore balance and function. The human body responds well to an easy, gentle touch. This approach releases tension and ‘dis-ease’ from the system, allowing for healing at deeper levels. I am also well trained in nutrition, utilizing whole foods in as close to their natural state as possible. Another method I integrate is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), an easy to learn way of tapping on acupuncture points with the fingers to release blockages in the meridian system. This has allowed me to help my clients quickly release the emotional aspect of trauma that could be preventing them from healing. Any of these techniques used alone can be very effective; however, my ability to choose what is needed when, and blend them when required is truly unique. I look forward to sharing these gifts with you. Located at 2230 Loma Vista Drive, Sacramento.

Unlike hormone replacement therapy, these formulas rejuvenate your endocrine system as opposed to replacing hormones, which cause your body to slow down, or actually stop the production of its own natural hormones. These homeopathic remedies are in strict accordance and compliance with FDA regulations. Originating in Germany, homeopathy is widely accepted and has been practiced for over two centuries.

While preventing illness is the ultimate goal, when a person becomes out of balance (“dis-ease”), the first principle of NDs is to utilize the most natural, non-toxic, and the least invasive therapies first (do no harm). Another high priority is finding the underlying cause(s) of illness, not merely treating symptoms, therefore, hundreds of diagnostic and functional medicine labs are available.” Although Dr. Godby treats virtually all medical conditions, he specializes in chronic diseases – including childhood conditions, such as autism and eczema. Through treatment, patients often experience more energy and motivation, increased libido, improved memory, complexion and body composition with less fat and more muscle, clearer thinking, better sleep, less anxiety and moodiness and dependency on over-the-counter medications.

Feel lost walking the endless aisles at the health food store? Wish there was an easier way to achieve optimum health? There is! Dr Andrea McCreery at Life Sources®, Inc has been practicing the art and science of Vital Hematology (living blood microscopy), while incorporating Targeted Nutritional Intervention with astounding results since 1999. Dr. McCreery is able to examine a single drop of blood taken painlessly from the client’s finger and observe this miraculous fluid of life in real time. Dr. McCreery states, “Each person’s health needs are as different as we are individually. What we need nutritionally is fundamentally based upon our age, gender, genetics, diet, exercise and stress levels, which change constantly throughout our lives. In order to determine our client’s nutritional needs, we need to closely examine the one essential life giving substance that carries oxygen and nutrients to every single part of our bodies – our blood. That is why Vital Hematology (living blood analysis) is so vitally important when creating a nutritional protocol, and best of all, it is tailored specifically for the client’s nutritional needs.” Life Sources® Client Shares: “Since I was 12 years old, I have been suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. My best friend suggested that I see Dr. McCreery. My daily abdominal pain was also creating back pain. None of the medications that were prescribed would work and the antibiotics seemed to only make things worse, including my skin. After only 30 days of following Dr. McCreery’s advice with just a few changes in my life, I am no longer cramping from IBS or having lightheadedness, my back pain is gone, and my skin is clear!” (Ad pg. 50.

Acupuncture – The Chinese practice of gently inserting fine needles into the body at specific points to cure disease, relieve pain and balance the energy systems in the body. Aikido – Aikido is a martial art based on integration of mind-body-spirit and resolution of conflict through nonviolence. Ai means harmony or to blend; ki is the flow of universal energy; do means way or path. So Aikido is the way or path of harmony or blending with the flow of universal energy. Students learn to train their intention, attention, and physical alignment and movement. In Aikido, one holds the intention to create peace and to extend loving protection to all beings. The attention is trained to perceive the flow of ki and the subtle or energy body. Students practice physical alignment and movement in accordance with Aikido principles: ground, center, blend, enter, and lead. Astrology – The study of the interaction between the planets, stars and the astrological signs. The relationships between them and their interactions are mathematically based, and Astrology studies these mathematical cycles. Each Sign represents a different aspect of the whole human; Aries starts the cycle, representing the Self, and Pisces completes it, representing the mass unconscious of all mankind. In between, each other Sign carries the energy of a different phase of (wo)man’s evolution within the universe. Ayurveda – Practiced in India for the past five thousand years, Ayurveda (meaning “science of life’) is a comprehensive system that combines natural therapies with a highly personalized approach to treatment of disease. Ayurvedic medicine places equal emphasis on body, mind and spirit, and strives to restore the innate harmony of the individual. Biofeedback – Quantum biofeedback is a computerized energetic device that detects and assesses imbalances in the body, then emits healthy, balancing frequencies back to the body. It works by reducing the stresses on a body at the electro-magnetic level caused by food, toxins, hormones, nutrient deficiencies, allergies, parasites, emotions, environment, genetics, and lifestyle. The system searches for stress patterns in the body and then administers appropriate therapies to help the body correct any imbalances found. Bowen Therapy – A series of gentle, simple non-invasive moves performed across muscle fibers and connective tissue, in a succession with waiting periods, incorporated into the session. The resting time allows the brain to assimilate, correlated and create a positive response to the area being treated. All body systems are accessed allowing muscle and nerve tissue to relax, toxins shed, circulation increased. Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) – A healing touch modality of Chinese Taoist origin. Soft touch and gentle massage on the abdomen stimulates the organs to work better and creates beneficial change in all the systems of the body: the digestive, lymphatic, cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, urinary, muscular-skeletal, and the acupuncture meridian system that is the pathway for ‘chi’ or energy. A Chi Nei Tsang treatment releases deepseated tensions and restores vitality. The modality’s holistic approach integrates the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects of our being. Cranial Sacral (CranioSacral) Therapy - A holistic, hands-on technique involving gentle manipulation of the bones of the skull, the underlying meningeal membranes, and the nerve endings in the scalp.

Colon Hydrotherapy to improves muscle tone and facilitate peristalsis action. Dreamwork – Dreams contain metaphorical, symbolic, and archetypal language and images. Many are multilevel, with messages relevant to various aspects of one’s being: physical health, emotional well-being, and soul level. Dreams may contain literal information about potential future paths. Dreamwork explores meanings of dreams and reveals how the different layers relate to one’s life. The dreamer is the authority on the meaning(s) of the dream; the dreamworker(s) offer insights using the “if this were my dream” format. Shamanistic dreamwork includes shamanic journeying on the dream images. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) – An advanced, rapid therapy approach for stress-related symptoms, traumatic memories, and to shift core beliefs. With bi-lateral stimulation of both sides of the brain, EMDR allows the brain to reprocess the experience and go for a healthy resolution. The eye movements process the unconscious material like what is happening in REM or dream sleep and unlock the nervous system which allows re-integration of positive information and outcome. Your own brain with this technology does the healing and you are in control. Eurythmy Therapy - A movement therapy that harmonizes the whole being by balancing the physical body with the life forces and soul forces, drawing upon the formative forces of the creative World Word, the planets and constellations, and the four elements. A key modality in Anthroposophical medicine, Eurythmy Therapy has been successfully practiced for more than 90 years, with application used for many indications from small children to senior citizens. These are non-aerobic exercises done in standing, wearing normal street clothes. Feng Shui – The ancient Chinese art of intentionally arranging the spaces in which we live and work so that they are energetically balanced, so that they comfort and nurture and fully support and help us manifest what we need and want. Following the principles of feng shui, we place our furniture, introduce color and accessories, apply cures, and use our intention to create abundance, joy, and harmony in our lives. Homeopathy – A natural pharmaceutical science that utilizes substances from the plant, mineral, and animal kingdoms and is based on the premise that these naturally occurring substances can cure disease symptoms similar to those they produce if taken in overdose. Each medicine is individually prescribed according to how it stimulates the immune and defense systems of the sick person. Sometimes it is called the “royal medicine.” Hypno-Birthing® – The skill of intentionally going into a profoundly relaxed state, mentally and physically, for comfort in childbirth. Hypnotherapy – Hypnotic techniques can induce everything from a light to a heavy hypnotic state to help a client overcome psychological or physical problems, overcome a craving for cigarettes or overeating, managing chronic pain from an illness/accident, reducing or eliminating fears, and a wide variety of other issues to be overcome. Jin Shin Jyutsu – Brings balance to the body’s energies, which promotes optimal health and well-being, and facilitates our own profound healing capacity. It is a valuable complement to conventional healing methods, inducing relaxation and reducing the effects of stress. Lapa’au – a Hawaiian healing art practiced for thousands of years in Polynesia. During the healing session the practitioner becomes a bridge for healing, connecting the spirit of one or more Lapa’au Kahunas, the client, and the energies of the client’s Aumakua (personal guardian spirits). The client’s energy is balanced, distorted thought forms (that may result in illness) are removed, and energy links draining the client are disconnected. When the 91

Glossary of Holistic Terms client is a healer, the work takes place under the guidance of a higher level of Aumakua on multiple planes at the same time. The healer’s energy level is optimized for their own unique characteristics and abilities. Manual Lymph Drainage Therapy – A hands-on technique designed to attain and sustain proper functioning of the human fluid system. The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system. Myofasical Release – Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. Trauma, posture or inflammation can create a binding down of the fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures, and/or organs. The Myofascial Approach consists of the gentle application of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions which relies on feedback received by the Therapist through the patient’s tissue. Myofascial Release can help by addressing the cause of the problem to eliminate the symptoms and allow the body to make permanent changes resuming a healthy active life style. Naturopathic Medicine, Naturopathic Doctor, N.D. – Naturopathic medicine is a distinct and comprehensive system of primary health care practiced by a naturopathic doctor for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human health conditions, injuries, and disease. Naturopathic doctors are state-licensed practitioners who perform physical exams, order lab testing, and prescribe a variety of natural treatments, including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, exercise, and hormone replacement therapy. Osteopathic medicine - A form of conventional medicine that, in part, emphasizes diseases arising in the musculoskeletal system with an underlying belief that all of the body’s systems work together, and disturbances in one system may affect function elsewhere in the body. Some osteopathic physicians (sometimes known as DO or osteopath) practice osteopathic manipulation, a full body system of hands-on techniques to alleviate pain, restore function, and promote health & well-being. Raindrop Therapy – The application of therapeutic-grade essential oils using massage and vita flex techniques. Raindrop Therapy aids in the healing of physical and emotional injuries, strengthens the immune system, detoxifies the the body, and helps to bring the body into physical and electrical alignment. Reconnective Healing® utilizes new frequencies to allow for the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. These energies, currently being researched by Dr. J. Schwartz at the University of Arizona, are highly palpable and continue working long after the healing session has ended. Initiated without specific intention they result in the healing your body truly needs, not necessarily what you requested or expected. After the initial one to three sessions, there is no need to return for additional work on that particular issue or illness. The Reconnection™ – Originally the meridian lines, sometimes called acupuncture lines, on our bodies were connected to the grid lines that encircle the earth. These grid lines were designed to continue outward and connect us to a vastly larger grid, tying us into the entire universe. Over time, we became disconnected from these lines. The Reconnection brings in “new” axiatonal lines that reconnect us to these grid lines. The unique vibratory levels and frequencies they bring in contribute to healing through the reconnection of DNA strands, and ultimately our personal evolution by providing the means to reconnect with our purpose. Reiki – A therapy based on Eastern concepts of energy flow and the seven energy centers in the human body. The purpose of treatment is to heal emotional, spiritual, and physical, pain through the transmission of universal life energy, called “ki” in Japanese. It is believed that “ki” flows throughout the universe, and that Reiki connects humans in a more direct way to this universal source. Reiki is used for the healing of animals as well as people. 92
