Naturopathy is a balance of the ancient healing arts and modern medicine. It is guided predominately by the principle of vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of nature. In essence the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. This ability sometimes needs assistance and support due to daily stresses and environmental exposures. Naturopaths are primary care physicians who have received undergraduate degrees before they have completed four years in naturopathic medical school.
Craniosacral therapy is a form of energy medicine that uses a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep within the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord, which make up the central nervous system.
The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy™ is an external, non-invasive manipulation of the abdominal and pelvic organs. Internal organs may become malpositioned, leading to the constriction of circulatory, lymphatic and nervous structures. Maya abdominal therapy realigns structures, which reduces nerve compression and lowers inflammation by increasing blood and lymphatic drainage. The uterus, gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract are the major structures that can benefit from this manual technique.
At Flow Natural Health Care, we recommend that all of our patients live an active lifestyle. Regular exercise is an important part of living a healthy life. Exercise is a great way to improve your overall health, maintain a healthy weight and is something that most people enjoy. Whether your chosen activities include long-distance running, lifting weights, biking or a variety of other sports, it’s not uncommon to experience injuries, lingering pain and a general sense of fatigue.
Our goal at Flow Natural Health Care is to create a supportive environment where individuals can explore their emotional needs and overcome barriers that limit their full potential. Therapy should be a process of purposeful exploration. We take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider the individual’s goals, family traditions, cultural and spiritual beliefs, work and home environments.
Lymphatic drainage is a subtle but powerful therapeutic bodywork technique that is beneficial for nearly everyone. Addressing the lymphatic system can be so crucial for our overall health – yet this system of our body is one that is rarely spoken of, and one that we often know very little about. The lymphatic system can be considered the other half of the circulatory system and, as you can imagine, when this system doesn’t work properly, neither can our body!
