We design our educational programs to pick up the “missing links” in health care. The current modern medicine model of care lacks these links. For this reason, our programs are designed for consumers (community members or health care practitioners) and are based upon Holistic Nursing, theoretical principals. These principals address the art and science of healing that considers the Whole Person: Mind, Body, and Spirit. Holistic Nursing integrates the practice of convention medicine (Western or Allopathic) with alternative therapies to prevent and heal. But most importantly to promote optimal health.
Tai Chi, Qigong, yoga, meditation
Throughout the ages, practitioners of sacred healing arts and science recognized that access to our energy, restored our body’s natural ability to heal, while also opening ourselves to experience deep rest and relaxation. This peacefulness and natural healing can be achieved through Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga and Meditation.
Tai chi is a form of martial arts that is practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. Originating in ancient India, yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines. Many Westerners are familiar with the art of Hatha Yoga. Meditation allows us to be mindful, while providing calm and peacefulness for our mind and body.
Current research demonstrates practicing one of these meditative movements improves strength, betters balance, reduces pain and stiffness, enhances sleep, improves memory, and increases immunity. Through these practices you can help the body heal itself, slowing or even reversing the effects of certain conditions.
