How can Meditation help with healing from abuse? Meditation has been scientifically studied throughout the years to aid in the healing process associated with stress as well as for mental & physical health.
With the hectic pace and demands of today's society, a victim of abuse many times will find themselves in a survival mode and many of feel stressed and over-worked. The stress and tiredness has a significant impact on our bodies and minds, and we feel unhappy, impatient and frustrated. This often transitions over into our health. "Who has the time?" By meditating you actually gain more time by calming your mind, and staying focused.
A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some inner peace and balance. It can also aid in the healing from abuse and gain clarity needed to deal with legal matters that may arise.
Meditation can also help us to understand our own mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the purpose of the transforming meditations.

Have you ever gone to your physician while not well, only to be told "it is just stress - go home and relax"? The challenge is if you knew how to relax to begin with, you would not be at your doctor's office seeking help. Right? Many people feel they are spinning their wheels and not getting better and searching for answers with no feeling of end in sight.
What typically happens is one of a few things. You are either told "Go home and relax", given a prescription, or told to go to therapy. How is that working for you if you have tried that approach? If you are reading this page, then maybe you are still searching correct?

What is Nutrition Coaching?
Anyone who has attempted to change something about themselves knows the process of changing is no small feat. Pair this often overwhelming notion of change with the multitudes of dietary theories constantly competing for the limelight and a lack of knowledgable support, and taking control over your health can seem like an insurmountable obstacle.
Health and Nutrition Coaches are knowledgeable advisors who provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that can deeply improve your health and happiness. Erin considers everything that contributes to our well-being and health: what she calls “primary food” or all the things that feed and nourish our bodies, minds and spirits, like career, relationships, movement and exercise, spirituality, sleep; as well as the actual food we eat that directly affects our physical bodies. Acting as an informed guide, Erin listens deeply, provokes your inner wisdom with mindful questioning, and helps you navigate the world of contradictory nutrition theories to help you determine what changes are necessary for you and how you will make these lasting changes. Most importantly, she gives people the tools they need to harness and sustain their own health and wellness.

Hypnosis is a natural way of bypassing your conscious mind and reaching directly to the subconscious mind. In a state of deep relaxation, your mind accepts suggestions as they are and releases beliefs that hold you back. Hypnotherapy is effective because it works directly with the part of the mind that keeps the problem in place – the unconscious. We use guided visualization another form of hypnosis to help You, the client, make the changes they want in their lives quickly, easily and effectively.
There are many reasons to use Hypnotherapy. Most commonly, to stop smoking, manage weight, overcome fears and anxieties or cure phobias. Hypnotherapy is also proven to be very effective for folks who want to be more confident, overcome or let go of undesirable habits or patterns
Hypnotherapy works by uncovering the reasons for your struggle trapped in your subconscious. Using hypnotherapy techniques, we facilitate a process of healing to positively change your life. Unlike modern medicine, hypnotherapy seeks to uncover the source of your problem to reveal the cause and to help you heal – without drugs, without sedatives and without dulling the senses.
Hypnotherapy has been approved by the AMA, the American Psychological Assoc., John Hopkins Hospital, The British Medical Assoc., and every major religion on the planet.
