Why The ORCHID?

The  Orchid has a unique character in that when it seems that it has ceased any sign of life due to lack of water or light, it magically revives when the flower is cared for again in the proper manner. So too this applies to the human body. Although compared to a machine, the body is nothing of the sort. Unlike a machine, the body has the capability to heal itself when it is nurtured back to health and reborn. This process can be facilitated by restoring the energy flow and calming the soul through counseling, massage, and focusing on rebalancing the neuro - endocrine system.

The Emotions Connection to Weight Loss

Some people say they have "an emotional tie to food." What science has shown is that emotions can guide our food choices. This is due to the fact that we are trying to compensate for the imbalances in brain chemistry, or neurotransmitters. When these levels are too high or low they convince us to make terrible food choices.

To add insult to injury, in times of chronic stress the body produces the hormone cortisol at high levels. As an evolutionary control mechanism, cortisol increases abdominal fat to protect the vital organs. To make matters even worse, when cortisol rises, it causes imbalance in thyroid hormone and sex hormones.

Unfortunately the negative consequence is weight gain in all the wrong places.

Therefore, we focus on stress reduction and improving sleep which will regulate the neurotransmitters and balance the hormones. We utilize the power of emotional health counseling and massage therapy, while coaching you on optimal nutrition, relaxation techniques, sleep hygiene, and supplements that help restore the neurotransmitter and hormone pathway. This is a truly holistic approach to reducing stress, which translates to ultimate weight loss.
