Advanced Therapies for the Whole Person
Welcome to The Healing Arts
We are a holistic center devoted to the best in natural
approaches to health. In our
practice we recognize that within each human being there is a dynamic
interplay between body, soul and spirit.
Our efforts toward attaining true health address the physical body and
the elements that make up our vitality, as well as our psychological and
spiritual selves. Just as the
physical body has organs with different functions, so does the psyche or soul
have different components of mind, emotion and will.
The self, or our spiritual nature moves us toward realizing our
authentic motives. Each of us is
a unique microcosm – a world within the world – expressing a need for
balance, understanding and well-being. At
the Healing Arts we create appropriate person specific programs for health
including nutrition, counseling, neuromuscular therapies, homeopathy and sound
Using Sound to Heal
The Healing Arts offers Tomatis-based sound therapy developed especially for improved listening skills, increased attention and concentration, increased learning ability, decreased hyper-sensitivity and hyper-activity. In our work we help restore the ear’s perception of “lost” frequencies by systematically listening to music through our enhanced listening program. Through these techniques we employ frequencies placed at corrected intervals in relationship to the ear and brain. We correctively shift the sound so that what is heard is then synchronized for the ear and brain to learn to cooperate more efficiently. Through this enhanced coordination the listening perception of the individual organizes, and the ability to focus is stimulated. Additionally, we address fine motor skills through handwork and guided artistic work and uncover elements useful for good life-long listening habits. At The Healing Arts our aim is to create an effective way for the entire person to function which will be reflected in the ability to process information clearly.
