Finding Your Nourishment Recipe

Health doesn't have a look; its not needing to be a size 0 or a 3xl. Being healthy doesn't mean following unrealistic guidelines or looking a certain way. Health is giving back to your body for all it does for you. Health is feeling energized + confident and happy daily. Health is expanding your mind through fulfilling your wildest dreams! Your relationship with health is individual. 

 

I believe that we all have our own nourishment recipe. If you and I were both baking a carrot raisin cake without using directions, you may use more nutmeg. Where, I may go heavy on raisins and cinnamon. Both cakes would turn out incredible, though their ingredient percentages or measurements will differ. This is how I see health and wellness. We all require nutritious food, movement, sleep, mindfulness, and willingness for expansion. My nourishment recipe may require more sleep or movement than your recipe does.....and that's okay! Finding what makes sense for your lifestyle and wellbeing is key to understanding your health. 

Helping clients create their nourishment recipe is one of my favorite parts of what I do. Why?  Because I am able to help create a sustainable  and deepening connection to what aspects of holistic living matter most to them. Ingredients in a nourishment recipe can change just like the seasons of this beautiful planet. Some months may require more sleep, others more exercise. I enjoy assisting my clients in listening to what their body needs in that given time + part of their journey!

Holistic Healing Modalities 

Holistic health is an approach to life where the whole person is valued. Rather than focusing on specific parts of a person's body, holistic health considers the person's body, thoughts, emotions, spirit and interaction with others and with the environment. Modalities are the practices performed to help increase health + wellness. Here are a few examples / modalities that I use most frequently for my wellness.

Gua Sha or Scraping 

Gua Sha is a scraping technique that is used to decrease inflammation in the body, increase circulation + blood flow, and to bring toxins up to the surface. I use Gua Sha mostly on my neck, arms, and hands to help relieve tension. My hands often go numb/ are in pain and this is one way I can relieve the feeling. Your go to pain reliever may be Tylenol or Advil…mine’s Gua Sha!

Acupuncture + Cupping

Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine and involves the insertion of tiny needles into the skin at specific points. Acupuncture helps to balance the chi, or flow of energy through your body. Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of heated cups or non-heated cups. Used to relieve tension, decrease inflammation in the body, and ease pain. I use both of these modalities bi-monthly!

Yoga + Deep Breathing + Meditation 

Yoga + Deep Breathing + Meditation are all practices that come from Ancient Ayurveda teachings. Each of these practices I incorporate into my day helping to decrease stress, open up my lymphatic system, and promote healthy living. These practices can be self-led or led by a teacher. For these modalities it isn't about how your practice compares to other's but rather how you deepen your connection to self.
