Headache

Ellen, a 36-year-old marketing specialist with two children, walked in the door with the complaint of chronic headaches. She had been suffering for ten years from daily headaches, some of which were almost incapacitating at times. Over time she had tried certain medications, which helped to a certain extent. However, they had also given her unwanted side effects. Ellen felt her job and family were suffering, as she was having a difficult time juggling the demands of life with this disabling issue.

By the end of the initial intake, Ellen had already expressed her excitement at being exposed during her healing time with us to new alternatives and skills to use.

Ellen was able to note immediate change in both the frequency and quality of her headaches with application of acupuncture and guided imagery therapy. In addition, she was given the following services:

  • Nutritional Guidance
  • Cupping
  • Breathwork Techniques
  • Essential Oils
  • Nutrition Response Testing
  • Stress Management Techniques
  • Tools for Relating and Communicating
  • Environmental/Whole Body Education

Other tools Ellen enjoyed were Alpha Stim and Heartmath, as well as the infrared sauna.

During her treatments, Ellen began to realize her health was her first priority, and her life began to change as she learned healthier ways of Being. She now practices proactive approaches to her health as she joyfully moves through life headache and medication free.

Anxiety

Nathan, a 55-year-old sales representative, was referred after years of having explored every known western medical treatment for anxiety. Nathan had recently taken himself off his anxiety medications after he realized it increased his symptoms as well as produced new symptoms of depression. He realized something had to change.

During the initial intake, Nathan was a little apprehensive since he had experienced so many dead ends. However, by the end of our session he did state he felt hope for the first time in years.

He began his journey with Guided Imagery Therapy, where we took an in-depth look at the emotional sources of his anxiety so he could begin to heal. He also found the experience of acupuncture aided his mental and physical relaxation where medications had failed.

Nathan also came in for sessions on meditation, on how to stay in the present moment and focus his thoughts there. He also learned techniques to re-hardwire his brain for joy and peace. He learned concepts of being versus doing, which he found particularly helpful in his profession. He was also given tools for overcoming the barrier of fear. He was taught breathwork that instantly lowered his anxiety levels and calmed his body.

Nathan also enjoyed the following services at Awakened Living:

  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Essential Oils
  • Stress Management Techniques
  • Relationship/Communication Techniques
  • Herbals
  • Cupping
  • Nutrition Response Testing
  • Biomat
  • Alpha Stim
  • Heart Math

Nathan made a commitment to changing his life and adopting the techniques he learned.  His commitment to this process has changed his life. He has learned to recognize, through being far more attuned to his body, when even the slightest feeling of anxiety approaches, and he can immediately eliminate it using the techniques he has learned.  Through Guided Imagery Therapy he also healed the initial triggers of anxiety in his life.

PTSD

Evan, a 29-year-old veteran, had separated from the military two years prior to entering Awakened Living. At the time we met him he was struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  He stated upon meeting us that he was having troubles with his family, trouble keeping a job, he felt angry, he experienced uncontrollable emotional outbursts, and he was unable to sleep. His most recent symptoms included physical pain. He came to us seeking help, as traditional routes had not worked for him.

The initial intake was a challenge for Evan in getting past a feeling of disconnection or distance from everyone. We helped him to understand that this was a journey, a healing process in which we were committed in helping him through. Over time he experienced a series of guided imageries, as well as acupuncture sessions which included esoteric acupuncture.

He was taught techniques for keeping his mind in the present moment as well as more awareness of what his body was feeling. Breathwork was introduced to help him immediately gain composure and regain access to the present moment. Over time he found relief in learning how to respond versus react to what was going on in his environment.

Other services that Evan received were the following:

  • Sessions on Spirit Connection
  • Alpha Stim
  • Heart Math
  • Tools for Relating and Communicating
  • Nutrition Response Testing
  • Cupping
  • Essential Oils
  • Herbals
  • Biomat
  • Stress Management Techniques
  • Meditation
  • Nutritional Counseling
  • Techniques to Re-Hardwire his Brain

Evan understands that this is a process, a journey, and that it does take presence of mind to move through what he has experienced. Through his treatments and sessions he has learned a much more centered way of moving through his life. He is finding tremendous value in dealing with and healing the traumas of his past experience, without ever having to relive the scenarios that created the pain in the first place.
