If you could wave a magic wand and change one (or even two) thing about your life that would make you happier, healthier, and more productive, what would it be? Being free of trauma? Guilt? Insecurity? Fear? Stress? Losing unhealthy habits? Getting your pain or negative emotions in control? Developing better work habits? Feeling more confident? Being more in touch with your body?

You don't need magic to accomplish any of these things, although many clients do say it feels like magic, when after just one or two sessions with Michael, conditions which have plagued them for years, or even for their entire lifetime, evaporate.


You've probably heard the expression, “If all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.”

Unfortunately, that's how a lot of traditional Western doctors approach medicine. When you seek care for a physical ailment, most likely they will prescribe either medication or surgery…because that's all they know and that's all they have in their arsenal. They treat the symptoms, but not the root cause of the problem.

If you have a mental or emotional issue, a therapist might prescribe endless talk sessions, which might help you consciously understand the problem, but it doesn't really resolve it. A psychiatrist might prescribe medication to help you deal with the manifestations of your emotional issues or past trauma.

If you have a find yourself with spiritual issues, you're told to consult with a minister, priest, or rabbi.

And forget sexual issues! Most medical professionals and therapists have little or no training in the subject, and are uncomfortable even discussing it.

In other words, in Western practice and thought, we separate the physical, mental and spiritual.

However, contemporary research is now proving that the Eastern model is more correct: the mind, body and spirit are intimately connected and inseparable. For maximum physical health and emotional well-being, we need to take a more holistic approach to wellness.
There is ample scientific evidence that you can radically alter your body's physiology just by changing your mind. Contrarily, there is overwhelming proof that you can actually make yourself physically sick by thinking “unhealthy” thoughts, and by not releasing stress and thus holding it in the body.

Similarly, we can affect the mind and emotions by working through the body, i.e. touch, breathwork, movement.

It's all interconnected.

I am a wellness professional trained in hypnotherapy, bodywork, and Reiki. I have seen again and again how treating clients holistically and using the Mind-Body connection to affect remarkable cures and positive outcomes. They key is taking the time to carefully listen to each client and understand the best way to work with them. Very often, the root cause of their presenting issue, when discovered, is a big surprise to them.

Modern research in fields such as neuroscience, psychology, and psychoneuroimmunology has illuminated the tangible links between our thoughts, emotions, and bodily functions. It is scientifically proven that the brain acts as the command center of the nervous system. It sends signals to various organs and systems throughout the body impacting everything from heart rate and hormone production to immune response and inflammation. Furthermore, the release of neurotransmitters and neuropeptides in response to our emotional and psychological states directly influences our physiological well-being. For instance, chronic stress has been proven to lead to increased cortisol levels, which, over time, can contribute to a range of physical health issues.

Science has further validated that positive mind-training practices like meditation, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral therapy can reduce stress, alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression, and even enhance the body's immune response.

Emotional and mental disturbances are also clear signs that your mind and body are not in sync, especially if they are interfering with daily functioning. These disturbances could include excessive feelings of anxiety, depression, or mood swings, difficulty managing stress or adapting to life changes, an inability to focus, difficulty making decisions, or maintaining healthy relationships. Recognizing these signs within yourself or a loved one is the first important step towards healing. The second and oftentimes the most difficult step towards healing and balancing the mind-body connection is seeking support.
