Empowerment Is Essential
People need to establish their own power and be loosely held by the hands of their health practitioner, where their health is co-created, not managed.
Individuals are encouraged to be self-directive, creating health by being educated about their body, mind, spirit, and environment so they can awaken into something great for themselves.
Everyone is motivated to practice being self-responsible for their health issues and to learn how to stay healthy.
Today's health professional empowers the individual to reclaim their health while the individual becomes rooted in their own power.
Each person is supported when working with a knowledgeable, well-trained health professional who provides education and the tools necessary to promote life changes specific to individual needs.
"In my clincial experience, the greatest block to a person's development is his having to take on a way of life which is not rooted in his own powers."
