Advantages to Employers – Employees are more likely to use a wellness program that requires no co-pay or referral, is easily accessible and entirely confidential. Recovery, personal and family related problems are common reasons why employees are not thriving, and these individuals would usually rather talk with a professional that is not affiliated with their insurance for confidentiality reasons.

Advantages to Employees/Individuals – Employer-assisted programs are free to employees (no co-pay) who may contact us directly and at their convenience. Employees/Individuals may also choose from our array of professionals and services, as well as talk directly with someone who can help. There is no bureaucracy, no 3rd party administration or approval needed, no getting lost in a phone maze or lost in the system. Clients can usually see someone within the same week.

Advantages to the Community – With the mindset that healing is not just mental or physical – but also spiritual, transformative and creative – we see wellness-seeking as a significant component to a healthful life-style. This “self care” empowers the individual, strengthens authentic relationships, and equips the community to be responsible for its own wellbeing.

Feel free to contact us to learn more about how Middle Way Health can help foster healthier lives, lifestyles and organizations.

ART THERAPY

Art Therapy is “a therapeutic treatment that incorporates the process of creating or selecting images, reflecting on the art, and interacting with a trained professional for assessment, communication, stress reduction, and intervention” (Arrington, 2001, p. 6).

It’s especially useful for people who find verbal communication difficult, but Art therapy can be a way for people of all ages and cultures to use art as a language. Art Directives are used within individual, family, and group sessions as tools to promote healing for both psychological and physical pain.

When creating art in community, we are connecting in a way that we don’t often get to connect- building something together provides opportunity for collaboration, socialization, and a sense of cohesiveness.

Narrative therapy in combination with art therapy is a powerful way to tell stories, engage with one another, and enact both personal growth and group development.

Describing how the artwork an individual creates in a therapeutic setting is important to look at both visually and verbally. The right hemisphere of the brain is utilized while a person is making art, which stimulates intuition, imagination, holistic thought, and insight. In turn, when a person is speaking to the artwork they’ve created, the left hemisphere is activated which stimulates verbal, analytical, and rational forms of reasoning.

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is defined as moment by moment nonjudgmental attention to what is happening. Through sitting still and being alert we calm our mind and body and develop clarity, balance and focus. Mindfulness Meditation is useful to help treat stress, chronic pain and anxiety. It is adaptable to any religious tradition and non-religious approaches.

For Mindfulness Practitioners, contact Middle Way Health or visit our Staff Page.

For our Mindfulness Meditation Group, view the flyer here: Mindfulness Meditation Support Group
or join us at Meet-Up Sacramento.

HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnotherapy is an ancient technique that uses deep relaxation coupled with positive suggestions to reinforce positive habits and extinguish negative habits. Deep Hypnotherapy can also be used for spiritual and psychological journey work where people meet archetypal energies and figures that promote healing and guidance.

The transformative style of Hypnotherapy offered at Middle Way Health assists the client in re-patterning the underlying cause of our suffering buried deep in the subconscious in order to turn our pain into joy.

For Hypnotherapy Practitioners, contact Sue Marshall or Judy Lynn Taylor.

SHAMANISM

A Shaman is a person who can alter their perception with percussive sound and enter into the world of non-ordinary reality, come into relationship with the compassionate helping spirits, and together with those spirit allies bring healing and information into ordinary reality for the client.

Receiving shamanic healing from a Shamanic Practitioner can bring your spirit body into harmony – a harmony that radiates through your entire Mind-Body-Spirit being. With soul retrieval, soul loss can be restored. With Extraction Healing, your spirit body is cleansed of ‘other’ energies. And with a complete healing program, your feeling of balance can be restored.

Have you been bouncing around from healer to healer looking for help? Many people try different methods of spiritual healing before giving shamanism a try.

Shamanic healing can offer answers to:

Why am I stuck?
How can I satisfy this spiritual hunger?
Why do I hurt?
Where can I go for help?

For more information, call Judy Lynn Taylor at Middle Way Health and visit www.AdventuresInShamanism.com.

MOMMY MOOD

Many people think a “good mom” is someone who denies herself everything for the sake of the children, but there is nothing we can give to our child that is more important than ourselves. More than what you teach your children, they will learn from what you model for them. We all need help sometime.
