josiah lucero

Self Awareness Therapist, SAAT, ECp,

ZYTO Tech, EVOX Tech

Josiah Lucero is the founder of Seven Attributes To Self Awareness. A Self Awareness Therapist is an individual's ability to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of one's own character. Realizing this will enable one to take actions, and make choices and decisions that are consistent with their own abilities. It is important to put the time in -self-awareness it is not learned in a book, but achieved through self-reflection by using what you have learned about your self to inform decisions, behaviors, and interactions with other people and the Patient/Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the Patient /Client to maximize conscious knowledge of one's own character, feelings, motives, and desires. A Self Awareness Therapist uses a deeper, more holistic approach. We incorporate Seven Attributes To Self Awareness in our treatments. The Seven Attributes To Self Awareness is a technique developed by Josiah Lucero, and it works by literally getting rid of emotional baggage. ... Because trapped emotions are made of energy, just like the rest of the body, they exert an influence on the physical tissues and can cause acute pain and even disease.

 arensdorf

  Massage Therapist

 LMT

As a practitioner, my main focus is relaxation and helping, whether your needs are deep tissue

or just a relaxing getaway. My services include deep tissue, swedish, prenatal, shiatsu and lymph massage. The version of Shiatsu I perform is a relaxing

acupressure session performed

clothed on the floor.

A Lymph massage is a very gentle flushing of your Lymphatic system to help your body with its own beautiful system of detoxifying the body. This type of massage can be useful to anyone with allergies, sinus pressure, back-up of lymph in areas of the body, and just 

to help with detox in general.

My goal is to find the right treatment that can

help you live a more relaxed life.

Shauna Starr

Acupuncturist

LAc, Dipl. Ac, MS, LMT, CBF

I have been working with bodies much of my adult life, initially as a body therapist in many venues, followed by a career as an acupuncturist.

I have worked in depth with pain and trauma.

A trademark of my practice is to engage patients in 'homeplay' tools that they integrate into their daily lives in order to augment their healing between treatment sessions.

In addition to oriental medicine, integrated into my sessions are Access Consciousness Bars, Reiki, Kinesiology, and body therapies to name a few.

I have been deeply involved in honoring  the circle of life, by  having provided the services of hospice doula many times in this life.

Dr. Taylor

Mitchell

Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine is an ancient philosophy of medicine that believes the body has an inherent ability to heal and renew itself. Our bodies have wisdom and when we use this wisdom, amazing things can happen. We deal with blood sugar imbalances, digestive ailments, heart and brain dysfunctions, skin conditions, eating disorders, stress, anxiety, weight, inflammation, bone and joint issues and much more. We want to help the body get out of stress and help educate the public to no longer need us. We want to teach you how to be healthy without the need of a doctor.

Dawn Heartman

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist

BCST, RMT

Dawn Hartman is a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist.  Dawn has  professional massage licensure, and combines Biodynamic & Upledger styles of Craniosacral therapy with a trauma-informed lens of nervous system regulation in her healing & coaching work. She facilitates Authentic Relating practices, is a lover of Integral Theory, and a practitioner of divine feminine spirituality.

 

As a Craniosacral Therapist I orient to stillness and presence as the foundation for healing the physical body. Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch clothes-on bodywork modality that releases subtle and deep tensions in the body to relieve pain and and improve whole body health and performance.  It is excellent for rapid reduction in acute stress, brain and spinal cord health, and restoring a profound sense of peace and well-being

Colette realized the importance of massage when she attended undergraduate school. She decided to study massage therapy at Irene’s Myomassology Institute in 2012 after obtaining her degree in Environmental Science in Detroit, MI. A couple years later, she studied Western Herbal Medicine and received an Advanced Clinical Herbal Medicine certificate from the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine in North Carolina.

She dedicates herself to helping others heal through touch and incorporates multiple modalities in one session- Swedish, Thai, stretching, sports and energy work. When needed, she specializes in prenatal, acupressure, deep tissue, lymphatic, reflexology and active resistance therapy. She’s also great with neck pain relief, since she has experienced severe neck pain herself.
