My practice is informed by my mentors Maury Stein & Luis Yglesias who taught me about the importance of consciousness. Meaning, we are where our thoughts are. Where we put our attention & intention. Sun Miao said “Medicine is intention. Those were proficient at using intentions are good doctors.” Our feelings follow our thoughts. When we change our thoughts, we redirect everything that’s going on in our body.
I want to remind us to go back to the classics, back to the Nei Jing. For anyone who wants to work in birth, please read the works of Ina May Gaskin, Sheila Kitzinger, Penelope Leach, and Michel Odent. An incredible resource for patients are the photographs of Lennart Nilsson. It gives our patients an opportunity to visualize the sperm and egg, their meeting, and growth of cells.
Please feel free to go to my website WellnessHouseNorthampton.com where there are links to free resources to download for practitioners and patients.
