What Happens In A Session?
Paulette utilizes mind-body therapies that are grounded in Scripture and designed to enhance self-healing for all ages and backgrounds. Individuals lie fully clothed on a massage table (or sit in a chair) while hands are gently placed on or above the body in prayer and anointing. Essential Oils, meditation and music provide a fragrant and relaxing atmosphere releasing tensions and toxins while increasing endorphins and oxygen flow. A sense of overall well-being promotes healing and can help stabilize the physical, emotional, mental & spiritual needs.
There is a cumulative effect and regular sessions are recommended. Client sessions support traditional healthcare and are not intended to diagnose or replace medical treatment with your Doctor.
Being well hydrated is a must and clients are encouraged to bring a water bottle to their appointment; drinking plenty of water before and after each session helps conductivity and detoxification.
The human body is an “electrical machine”. All vital bodily functions happen as a result of electrical signals being sent between the various parts of the body and brain. In order to operate at peak performance, these electrical signals must be conducted in an efficient manner, this is where hydration come in.
The body is 70% water, when someone is taken to the hospital, one of the first and most common procedures is to hang an I.V. which simply means injecting salt water directly into the blood stream. Another example are athletes and the multi million dollar sport drink industry. Hydration helps the body operate at its optimum!
Mind-body therapy uses the power of thoughts and emotions to influence physical health. As Hippocrates once wrote, "The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well." This is mind-body medicine in a nutshell.
What is the history of mind-body medicine?
Most ancient healing practices, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, emphasize the links between the mind and the body. Early western medical views emphasized the opposite -- the mind and body were separate. Today, there is renewed interest in age old traditions such as prayer, tai chi, yoga and meditation to just name a few. No longer viewed with suspicion, mind-body programs are now established at prestigious medical schools in the United States and around the world.
Spirituality: Researchers have been studying how spiritual beliefs, attitudes, and practices affect health. In a recent study on people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), for example, those who had faith in God, compassion toward others, a sense of inner peace, and were religious had a better chance of surviving for a long time with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) than those who did not have such faith or practices. Research suggests that qualities like faith, hope, and forgiveness, and using prayer and social support, have a noticeable effect on health and healing.
