The Art of Integrative Healing
Integration is knowing we are not an island onto ourselves and that our "parts and systems" all work in unison. Our bodies are connected to our mind and our emotions. Our nervous system responds to our posture and body mechanics. Our hands and feet show the kind of lifestyle we lead. Why does all this matter? Because feeling good radiates good feelings outward into the world around us. We matter, it matters, you matter. What could make more sense to help everyone feel better than starting with yourself?
Lisa Lent is living proof that through personal holistic health management, wellness is achieved, instead of relying on treating the symptoms through traditional medicine.
Her life's work is an account of the transformative power aligning with the voice of heart, and learning to trust one's own "gut", a.k.a. the intuition. Lisa reveals the power of an integrative approach to wellness.
Works In Progress
We start out as a blank canvas, we color our lives with what our priorities are. When we get into the healthy habit of making ourselves a priority, we feel better about every aspect of our lives . It's a new habit for many, the habit of thinking and believing that we matter just as much as everything else in our lives.
The body IS the expression of the subconscious mind, we hold our repressed emotions in the tissues of our bodies, which is what causes energetic blockages. We don't even need to comprehend or know what the blockages are to release them. All we need to do is be willing to tune-in, feel, and release what lies under the surface. This is accomplished through both massage and any form of exercise or movement.
The chakra system is a perfect metaphor for understanding integrative wellness.
