For the traditionalist
Align Wellness Solutions specializes in providing therapy services to address issues of stress, anxiety, and trauma. One of our core beliefs is that this kind of deeper healing happens beneath the realm of cognition and the analytical (our over-thinking minds) - that healing lies in the domain of emotion, energy, and our physical bodies. So our work is based on restoring your connection and relationship to these parts of yourself.
Accessing the subtle body
Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a powerful tool for treating post-traumatic stress disorder and for shifting negative core beliefs. This specialized technique can be incorporated into your therapy sessions with Melanie, or added on to your work with another therapist.
Hypnotherapy is another technique we use to sink below the mind's intellectualizing habits and access the subconscious, where deep change can be made. The experience of hypnotherapy can feel very similar to guided meditations or shamanic journey work, and the outcomes for trauma can be as profound as other popular methods, without the intensity.
YOGA & MEDITATION
Confession: "yoga and meditation" is redundant. Yoga is a multi-faceted path that includes not only asana, the physical poses we usually think of as "yoga," but also breathwork and several layers of what we usually call "meditation."
Really, yoga means union.
We can use yoga's many tools of mind-body union - whether by way of breathing exercises and guided meditation practices, or sometimes incorporating small amounts of asana practices.
Usui Reiki is a system of energy healing in which providers have received attunements to enable them to channel universal life energy (ki/chi/prana) in order to facilitate the body's innate ability to heal. It is used in hospitals and hospices around the world as a complementary treatment. Reiki can be a stand-alone service or can serve as a support for the deep work you are doing in therapy.
