Holistic Wellness

 
Acupuncture

A wide variety of people come for treatment, ranging from children to the elderly, and many have found it extremely beneficial where other forms of treatment have been unsuccessful. Five Element Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with other care you are receiving. Beth specializes in treating physical and emotional pain. This includes all kinds of physical pain such as neck, back, injuries, pms and headaches. Emotionally, Beth has been able to help her clients get relief from depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and much more. Additionally, Beth enjoys working with people who have many other types of symptoms, even typically difficult to treat problems.

 

Another area of focus for Beth is treating the symptoms of neurologic conditions. She has been trained in Neuro-Acupuncture (NA). NA is a very safe technique. It is sometimes referred to as scalp acupuncture because many of the points used are on the scalp. These points are correlated to a specific part of the brain and stimulate areas associated with motor, sensory, or other functional impairment. Stimulating specific areas help restore connections and lost abilities. She uses her own unique combination of Neuro-Acupuncture, Five-Element Acupuncture, and nutrition to help conditions such as traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, anxiety, PTSD, Parkinson's, MS, and more.

NST Bodywork

Who can benefit from NST?

Any symptom the body manifests can be treated with NST because this therapy alerts your innate healing wisdom to be activated. In other words, NST restores the structural integrity of the your body so it can heal itself. It removes structural blocks that are getting in the way. This does not mean that every condition will respond in the same way. Some conditions require a multifaceted approach of which NST may be an intricate piece. NST is safe for all ages, from newborns to elderly. It is useful for a wide range of conditions from acute to chronic.

What is NST?

NST (NeuroStructural Integration Technique) is a dynamic form of bodywork that can provide you with lasting relief from pain and dysfunction, along with increased energy levels. You will feel deeply relaxed because this soft tissue therapy releases muscles and fascia. The main objective is to reintegrate and restore your body as a whole, allowing for better communication throughout your system. Now healing can really take place!

How does it work?

NST uses a series of gentle moves on specific muscles at precise points to create energy flow and vibrations between these points. This stimulates the nervous system which allows your body to communicate better with itself. The result is a  balance between muscles, organs and other tissues. NST is done with a light touch across muscles, tendons, fascia and nerves. It can be done directly on the skin or through light clothing.

 
B12 Injections

Are you tired of being tired? What are you missing out on because you don't have enough energy?

So why are you fatigued? Your fatigue may be due to an inability to absorb B12 in your gut due to aging and a lack of stomach acid, prescription medications including all heartburn medications and Metformin, aspirin, and eating too many processed foods. B12 deficiency can also be masked by large doses of supplemental folate. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 15% of the population has a deficiency, but some experts like Dr. Oz think it could be as many as 40%.

 

For some, B12 injections are a way to ensure the body has an adequate supply because it bypasses the gut and goes straight into the bloodstream.

What is vitamin B12 and how is it useful?

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that is an essential nutrient that helps the central nervous system to function properly, assists in the formation of red blood cells, and helps make DNA.

What can vitamin B12 injections do for me?

If you’re experiencing fatigue and have a deficiency in B12, these injections may increase overall energy levels. It works by helping the red blood cells to carry oxygen more efficiently. Also, if you fatigue is due to a lack of sleep and/or stress, B12 can help calm the nervous system which can help you sleep better.

What are sources of vitamin B12?

Although there seems to be some debate about this, it appears our body does not make B12 by itself, similar to vitamin D. Eggs, meat and nutritional yeast are good sources of B12 if you’re gut is healthy enough to absorb it.

Where are injections given?

The injection is given into a muscle, typically the tush. You probably won’t feel a thing. Typically, you will need a B12 shot once a week for several weeks to build up your stores. After your levels are in a good range, a shot is given every 1 to 3 months.

Form Matters

Methylcobalamin is better absorbed and retained in higher amounts within your tissues than cyanocobalamin. I use B12 methylcobalamin injections, which are preservative and chemical free.

Contraindications for vitamin B12 injections

  • Allergies to cobalamin

  • History of blood clots

  • Megloblastic Anemia

  • Leber’s disease

Cost for vitamin B12 injections

$25 per injection (1.5 ml.)
Package of five injections- $105

In-Person Reiki Sessions

 

Reiki sessions are available on Saturdays at Strength in Motion.

 

Reiki enables the physical, mental and emotional body to get back into natural balance for optimal healing. When our body is in balance, it is primed to self-heal and function at its best. This balance is achieved by bringing about a deep state of relaxation of the body and the mind.

 

Reiki does not treat any specific symptom or disease. It is an integrative healing modality that works well with conventional medical practices and therapeutic treatments to achieve optimal results.

 

During a session, hands are laid above or directly on the receiver’s body in non-intrusive areas with a gentle, static light pressure. The use of crystals, sound healing and essential oils may be incorporated in the session.

 

Appointments are offered in 60, 75 or 90 minute sessions. While with one treatment, noticeable results can be experienced, as with any health or healing practice, ongoing sessions will bring maximum benefit. Monthly and bi-weekly Reiki Memberships are available.

Collaborative Coaching

Collaborative Coaching works with both the wisdom and insight inherent in us, as well as the stuck, painful places that don’t seem to change no matter how much "work" we do. Coaching acknowledges that although we may know a lot about ourselves, our needs, triggers, and pain points, we may not be aware of why we suffer and feel stuck.

 

Collaborative Coaching utilizes embodiment tools, Hakomi Psychotherapy, and neuroscience-based mindfulness techniques that will support people in bringing limiting beliefs to consciousness and enable them to navigate life with equanimity. 

 

Working together, coaches and clients create a world of compassion, empowerment, and resources that facilitate living a life of love, acceptance, and joy. Collaborative Coaching helps clients manifest who they already truly are.

Collaborative Coaches serve many roles such as companions, health and wellness support and advocates. They can work as a team with your other practitioners to help you actualize and move forward in your life NOW. 

This service both exists on its own or as a team approach with your other practitioners.

Earth Ways:  Energy Work and Guidance

 

Over the last twenty five years, Kate has practiced many styles of yoga as a vehicle to support her healing and evolution. Kate’s great love of yoga has significantly impacted her practice, life and spirit, and has taught her a greater understanding of the healing power of breath and movement within the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the human body. In her 30s, Kate faced a crossroads where she knew she had to break out of how she was walking in her life and choose a new way of being which allowed her to be free in her life, in a fuller, more authentic way. During this experience she met her spiritual teacher, Trudy Welty. Trudy is known as a wisdom holder of working with nature in a sacred way. Trudy taught Kate methods of living as a sensitive being in this world by building a bridge working with Mother Nature and the human experience in a cohesive internal balance. She continues in her studies with Miss Trudy.

 

As Kate continued teaching and evolving in her healing ways, how she taught yoga shifted, and through her healing evolution, Kate was guided and then inspired to create a yoga style that worked with the elements of nature. Kate began creating a style with the support of Five Elements Acupuncture, and Earth Ways Yoga began. Kate invited Trudy Welty, a well-trained naturalist, to add even more depth of relationship between the natural world and humans' evolution toward walking in balance on this earth in honoring all the relations. Earth Ways Yoga builds the bridge between Mother Nature and the human experience through yoga, meditation and ritual. Kate and Trudy are honored to be able to stand together to offer these trainings to others who are ready to stand in an authentic way as a teacher in this world.
 

Kate's teaching will help unlock barriers that have held you back from walking a path of vibrancy in this life. Kate is honored to be able to bring her great passion for the art of healing to all that cross her path at all the studios where she teaches, including Yoga Pod and Radiance Power Yoga in Boulder Colorado, Tula Hot Yoga Studio in Denver, and guest teaches at Ra Yoga in Southern California. Kate also facilitates healing circles in her community which incorporate the Seven Directions, the 5 Elements and relationship building with the Natural World.
