Chronic Health / Chronic Pain Conditions
What are Chronic Health and Pain Conditions?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are defined broadly as conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both.
Individuals living with chronic health and chronic pain conditions often also experience emotional/mental health concerns. These arise due to the intensity and/or amount of symptoms, overwhelm with appointments, impacts on social life/relationships, medication effects, and more.
Those living with chronic health and/or chronic pain conditions may feel alone and unheard, which can exacerbate both physical and mental health symptoms.
How can we help with Chronic Health and Pain Conditions?
Our holistic approach in both counseling and wellness services, such as reiki and yoga, focuses on integrating the mind and body into one. Research shows that quite often, our body's physical symptoms can be rooted in an emotional wound/experience/stressor. Each provider offers a unique approach to identifying potential contributors to someone's current functioning. From gentle poses, breath-work, and meditation with Embodied Therapy, to the freedom of creative expression and processing with Art Therapy, and healing through Inner Child healing activities - there is an approach that fits your needs.
