Your initial consultation will consist of a 1 1/2 to 2 hour interview and very detailed evaluation which will investigate in depth your own individual and family's health history, and an examination of the eyes, tongue, pulse and general physiognomy and conformation. It is at this stage that a determination is made of your psycho-biological constitution (your prakriti) as distinct from your current status (your vikruti) and recommendations are made as to how health can be maintained or - if necessary - restored.
Such recommendations are most likely to take the form of recommendations for lifestyle adjustments, fitness protocols (such as, e.g. yoga) and nutritional regimens. Information on the utilization of herbal, herbo-mineral or homeopathic medications may be provided if indicated. Additionally, if indicated, recommendations may be made to outside therapists for bodywork (abhyanga- massage and shirodhara), acupuncture, chiropractic care, psychological counseling, physical therapy, or such other modalities as are felt to be appropriate and useful.
Reiki (Rei = universal or cosmic; Ki = energy) is a Japanese bio-energetic method in which the practitioner, utilizing a standard set of techniques, directs healing energy by means of his or her hands placed on or above (at the client's preference) certain parts of the body. According to the teachings of Reiki, If one's "life force energy" or Ki is lacking in quality or quantity, then one is more likely to become ill or more vulnerable to stress. Conversely, if one's Ki is high, one is more likely to be happy and healthy.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual and energetic healing that feels like a wonderful, glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported remarkable results following the application of a Reiki treatment.
Bach Flower Essence Therapy / Homeopathy
In the 1920s and 30s, a noted physician and research bacteriologist named Edward Bach discovered and elaborated a system of flower remedies that has helped countless individuals to rediscover the positive side of themselves and to restore and maintain a state of optimal health where it had been lacking.
In Dr. Bach's theory, these 38 plant remedies work by treating the individual rather than the diseases afflicting the individual or its symptoms. Each of the remedies is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus, for example, is the remedy for one who is anxious or fearful about something specific and nameable, while the remedy Aspen addresses fears of unattributable origin. Taking the remedy assists one to overcome one's fear and face one's situation with courage.
The expertly trained Flower Remedies Practitioner can efficiently assess a client's emotional context and employ one or several of the remedies, or diverse remedies used in series, either as a solitary therapy or as a complement to other therapeutic modalities (such as ayurveda) to promote healing and wholeness.
Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated. It is used to treat acute illnesses, like colds, ear infections, migraines, and sore throats, as well as chronic conditions, like asthma, depression, autism, and arthritis.
Homeopathic medicines – known as “remedies” – are made from natural sources (e.g., plants, minerals), and are environmentally friendly and cruelty free. Most are available over the counter in grocery stores, drug stores, health food stores, homeopathic pharmacies, and online. They are also extremely affordable. Homeopathic remedies when used as directed, are completely safe for everyone – including pregnant and nursing women, infants, children, and adults. They are given in such small doses that they don’t cause side effects. Dosages are extremely low, so that the remedies given do not work on a material chemical basis but on an energetic one.
Although homeopathic remedies are derived from natural substances, homeopathy should not be confused with herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, or other types of natural medicines. It is its own, unique therapeutic system.
We often use homeopathic approaches as a supplementary approach, along with Ayurveda, to address most conditions safely and effectively, but refer complex, chronic issues requiring advanced homeopathic expertise, to an outside homeopathic physician.
“After having consulted a great many physicians and alternative medicine practitioners, I am at last well along the road to full recovery from my gastritis, which had almost robbed my life of all of its enjoyment and quality."
“Insomnia had gotten so bad it threatened my employment. Acne had made me a physical and psychological wreck. Simple, natural measures have eradicated both, and I feel a different person today thanks to Bill's knowledge and compassionate guidance.”
