Sessions may be booked for BodyTalk or for stand-alone services EmRes or VMLD.
Healing Forward appointments are individualized and personalized according to your highest priority!
BodyTalk (BT) is a phenomenal mind body energetic health care system that looks at root cause and deeper levels of healing and is based upon the concept that the body has an innate wisdom that is capable of healing itself at all levels! This innate wisdom guides the overall functioning of the body-mind and helps to support homeostasis (balance) within, helping to bring the nervous system out of emergency mode so that the natural healing processes can then resume. As every single cell, atom, and system is in constant communication within the bodymind at all times. BodyTalk uses light hand contact and very gentle tapping on the body which activates the surface electrical field of the body and helps the nervous system improve communication which is crucial for STRESS relief!!
What is Stress?? Injury, severe illness, emotional trauma, financial stress, overwork, poor nutrition, and so much more are symptoms of stress. The body recognizes stress and treats it as an emergency in which the nervous system responds by activating the fight or flight response. If we never truly move past this stress response and trauma, our stress is never relaxed and the body stops healing itself, potentially leading to digestive disease, immune disease, high blood pressure, muscular tensions, cardiovascular disease, mood disorders, menstrual problems, degenerative disorders and many, many more.
In clinical practice, BodyTalk has many techniques to identify which parts of the body need what resources as it helps to restore a healthy nervous system balance while tapping helps to get the nervous system talking to areas that were not working optimally. Sessions are easy and comfortable, clients are fully clothed, and every session follows the BodyTalk protocols chart which is a roadmap to individualize and personalize each piece of each client’s formula. After a BodyTalk session, clients continue to feel positive changes long after, while their bodies continue to heal themselves! Read more here!
EMRES : EMOTIONAL RESOLUTION
What is an emotion? Where are emotions stored in our body and how do we clear them? Emotional Resolution aka “EmRes” accesses the body’s natural ability and capacity to permanently resolve unwanted negative emotional reactions, without needing to go into the original trauma or re-traumatize the system. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, grief, worry, fear, anger, avoidance, or any other self-limiting controlling experience, EmRes helps to synchronize the body to its present time and experience, updating the outdated and no longer needed predictions of the subconscious mind. The triggers do not return once they are cleared- can you imagine how revolutionary it would be to no longer be triggered?! EmRes is a game changer to help you move forward in life and experience greater freedom and emotional well-being. *Please note: EmRes sessions are booked separately and are a stand-alone service available for booking by clients once they have had their Intake session. Check out the Emotional Health Institute website to learn more about EmRes.
VMLD : VELTHEIM METHOD OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
The Veltheim Method of Lymphatic Drainage is a highly effective way of moving interstitial fluid through the tissues and into the lymphatic system to support the clearing of toxins and cellular waste while allowing for increased nutrient uptake by the cells! VMLD is deeply relaxing as it uses gentle wave-like movements across areas of the body (over clothes or above the body) to provide energetic support to the entire lymphatic system, which impacts every other system in the body! Potential benefits include more energy, reduction in swelling, sinus drainage, weight loss, decreased joint pain, improved emotions and releasing of stuck emotions in the body, increased immune function, reduced cellulite, optimized detoxification, and more! *Please note: VMLD sessions are booked separately and are a stand-alone service available for booking by clients once they have had their Intake session. Sessions may be booked once a month and are phenomenal to alternate in with BodyTalk or EmRes in between. For preventative healthcare, aim for a VMLD session 4x yearly at the seasonal equinoxes and solstices!
MORPHOGENIC FIELD TECHNIQUE
MFT is a revolutionary structured individualized nutritional system by which a skilled health care practitioner can develop an accurate personalized dietary, nutritional, and/or herbal protocol within minutes using the quantum physics concept of energy signatures and muscle testing! It is an effective technology that is the answer to developing and sustaining a large, balanced M-Field for optimal health and well-being. MFT testing is done in office and is incorporated into most visits. For more information, check out these MFT Videos and more available on the MFT website!
NEURONUTRIENT THERAPY (NNT)
NeuroNutrient Therapy (NNT) is a fantastic way to help restore and rebalance optimal neurotransmitter function. NeuroNutrient Therapy uses specific, targeted supplementation with amino acids (found in protein!) to ensure we are replete with these “feel good” nutrients. Julia Ross, author of The Diet Cure & The Mood Cure, developed specific assessments and protocols that work wonderfully for helping support healthy moods, cravings, and emotional balance. Clients have raved the benefits received, including relieving anxiety, decreasing depression and dark moods, increasing self esteem, and greatly improving sleep. Clients are also shocked to see their sugar cravings & junk food binges decrease or disappear altogether!
NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) explores different areas of the body as relating to health and energy flow in each and every organ! This information, derived from the nervous system, works to support the functions of the body, whether it be a specific organ, tissue, or physiological function, and indicates the energy (or lack thereof) within the body. Clients often feel surprised and excited during sessions as they experience their muscles feeling stronger as beneficial foods and/or supplements are held by them, and weaker with the not-so-good-news foods! NRT uses “Designed Clinical Nutrition” which is as it sounds: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully). NRT uses concentrated whole foods, in a tablet, capsule or powder, prepared to preserve all of the active enzymes and vital components so as to work as Nature intended, and has been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response when tested using Nutrition Response Testing!
TOUCH FOR HEALTH
Touch for Health (TFH) is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world. It is recognized and respected as the foundation training for other kinesiology and energetic systems as well as being a healing modality in it’s own right. In TFH we use muscle testing as a method of biofeedback to identify imbalances in the body’s energy system. Utilizing a holistic approach, we work to re-balance the body’s energies, meridians, and activate the body’s intrinsic healing process so that the body can better heal itself!
FUNCTIONAL LAB REVIEW
While Healing Forward can not diagnose, there is much information that can be gleaned from the right lab tests! Whether it’s bloodwork done through a doctor, or testing that HF can provide including salivary testing, stool testing, or functional hair tissue mineral analysis, all can be a great way to gather more information! HF can help you understand more about different tests as well as offer information on specific tests to request of your doctor so that you feel more informed and educated! Functional lab review looks at more than just fitting your results into a box, but the ratios and specific levels to understand and learn more deeply about nutrient deficiencies and possible underlying causes for illness, as seen through a holistic “whole-body” lens and framework.
Dating back to at least 60,000 years ago during the paleolithic era, plants and herbs have been used to help support the body and over time a Materia Medica has been collected to best understand and utilize a wide variety of herbs available locally and around the world. Western Herbalism works with herbal actions and formulations where you’ll hear words like adaptogens, bitters, demulcents, astringents, and nervines, among many others! If you’ve ever felt the calming from a mug of chamomile tea or the stomach soothing powers of mint steeped in hot water, you’ve experienced Western Herbalism on an everyday level!
ThetaHealing is a meditation technique and spiritual philosophy that uses the theta brain wave cycle to access healing from the Source of all that is ~ life, energy, and spirit. It allows one to connect in and explore emotions, feelings, belief systems, and so much more! Clients often remark how “intense” their sessions are when Theta work is done as it can often dig deep into long held beliefs and emotional parts of us we may have felt, but never truly experienced.
Reiki can be described as “spiritually guided life force energy” and can be felt as a warmth or tingly sensation as the practitioner gently holds above or against the body! It’s based upon the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and when energy is low, illness follows. Many clients report feeling a new flow or ease in areas that previously felt stuck or tight. It has also been found to lighten moods, and help support healing in the body for a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses!
While not one specific modality, HF sessions may include a wide variety of techniques that have been learned from an even wider variety of sources! These include working to bring in or release charged emotions or energy frequencies, clear past stuck energies, or harmonize and balance to new ways of being that the body/mind/spirit may need brought in to awareness. Tuning in to these emotions, and what needs to be cleared or embraced, can have profound effects!
There is always more to learn about and bring into sessions! Aside from continuing education and constantly learning more about the above techniques, many different healing tools are brought to sessions as needed with clients. A few things you may spy looking around the HF office include a vibrational energy grounding mat, tuning forks, a SAD lamp, crystals, chakra color work, energetic charging plates, and much more!
