What We Do
In life, we may be pulled in many different directions – and sometimes we are unable to adapt well to these changes and we breakdown; on all dimensions. In this breakdown, we find an opportunity for healing to begin to take place- just like the Birch; taking root to revive the landscape, where no other would before.
At Birch Health Studio, we peel back the layers and assist you in rebuilding the dimensions of your health. Through unique personalized care, we understand that true health begins at the root.
This incredibly gentle and holistic system of healing uses a non-invasive but thorough systematic approach to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism. Unlike many other forms of healing, Homeopathy treats the entire body as a whole and all symptoms; mental/emotional and physical require absolute detail and are highly valuable to your homeopath. Because Homeopathy treats the entire person, not only will your chief complaints resolve, but other issues that have plagued the patient will also resolve. Homeopathy treats all and any issues including, but not limited to; mental illness/emotional trauma, all types of physical injury whether chronic or acute and all deep-seated chronic conditions that have developed over a long period of time, typically presenting itself as a general deterioration in health including; acne, asthma, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, warts, varicose veins and ulcers.
Bach Flower Essences
The original Bach Flower Essences are a safe and natural method of healing discovered by homeopath; Dr. Edward Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore balance between the mind and body by alleviating negative emotions such as fear, worry, doubt, hatred and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Essences allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself.
Rei means Universal and refers also to the spiritual dimension and the soul. Ki means the vital life force energy which flows through all that is alive. Reiki is an energy based healing modality that works with the natural universal life force energy. It assists the body’s natural ability to heal itself. it is spiritual without dogma or creed.
Axiatonal Alignment is a healing modality, but it is also an initiation into Divine Awareness. It opens up blocked meridians to allow the free flow of energyes that have been trapped in our beings and restrict our movement forward. As these energies are allowed to flow without restriction we will release all cellular memories that we have been afraid to look at, that have held us captive. This enables healing to commence.
Black Pearl Technique
A wonderful, gentle method for neurovascular recalibration. This hands on modality uses massage like techniques while bringing attention to specific medirian energy points. This has a direct influence on the amygdala and our emotions. This technique allows the body, mind and spirit to succumb to a calm, peaceful and balanced state creating space for healing to begin.
