HOW DO WE WORK TOGETHER?
If you live in Pittsburgh or surrounding suburbs, then we can meet together in person in a beautiful treatment room at Mookshi Wellness Center (401 Biddle Avenue, 2nd Floor above Biddle’s Escape Cafe in Regent Square).
If you live anywhere else in the world, then we can work together using the power of the internet making geographical location and distance irrelevant. You will need access to the internet and SKYPE or we can use Google to “hang-out.”
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU COACH PEOPLE TO DO?
The mind and body are always aligned, but sometimes we start living as if this is not the case. In mind body therapy, I use a variety of techniques to help you feel more connected in mind and body. I choose the techniques that I think will be most helpful to you in meeting your goals: relaxation, mindful movement, breathing practices, mindful eating and meditation are common skills that I instruct my clients in using to support their own well-being. In addition, I offer instruction in planning menus, improving quality of sleep, using a basal thermometer to track menstrual cycles and other practical and specific lifestyle skills that support your goals.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Most women see evidence of benefits to our work together within 6-sessions. In general, the lifestyle changes including diet, exercise and meditation have both immediate benefits and women find that they are able to meet their original goals that were identified during the initial consultation between 6-months to one year. This is an empowering process where you learn how to improve the quality of your life. Once you learn the skills, they are yours to keep and use forever.
During our initial consultation, I will want to make sure that you have sought out appropriate medical care and diagnosis to rule out any medical conditions, illness or disease that can cause pain, irregular cycles, bloating and other symptoms as described above. I am not a doctor and offer holistic lifestyle consultations and support for women who have chronic reproductive organ and system health concerns that are not treatable through bio-medicine. While rare, there are serious conditions that can cause similar symptoms to PMS or PCOS, irregular cycles and infertility. My advice is not meant to replace professional medical care and I will never recommend that you stop taking any prescribed medication or treatment plan that has been prescribed by a doctor or mental health professional. If you have not already had an exam and evaluation by a medical professional regarding your condition, I will recommend that you do so as soon as possible in our initial consultation.
