What is Naprapathic Medicine (Naprapathy)?
The body is comprised of connective tissues; ligament, tendons, muscles, cartilage and other structures that support every system of the body. When the body is too loose, or too tight, (imbalanced) pain may occur. Naprapathy, derived from the Czech word napravit meaning “to correct” and the Greek word pathos meaning “suffering”. It is the goal of Naprapathic Medicine and one of the missions of Well With My Soul Holistic Health Center to restore natural flexibility and release muscle tension, leaving the connective tissues pliable and in balance. Similar to clinical massage therapy, Naprapathic Medicine relieves pain, enhances range of motion, improves blood flow, nerve conduction and the body’s ability to heal itself. This is accomplished via gentle hands-on manipulation of soft tissue (manual medicine), food therapy and treatment modalities that use heat, cold, light, water and radiant energy. Further treatments involve stretches, joint mobilization, rehabilitative exercise, relaxation techniques and assisted devices such as ultrasound, electro-stimulation and laser therapy. Some of the common conditions include:

Neck pain
Back pain
Shoulder Pain
Joint Pain
Headaches
Fibromyalgia
Muscle Spasms
Strains/Sprains
Sciatica
Repetitive Motion Syndrome

What is wellness coaching?
Wellness coaching looks at where you are now and where you want to be. With wellness coaching you can maximize performance, manage stress and achieve personal, work and/or business goals. One goal of wellness coaching is to promote healthy behavior utilizing a holistic point of view. Similar to life coaching, wellness coaching can be done individually or in a group capacity, over the phone or in person.

How can I benefit from clinical massage therapy?
Clinical massage therapy has both physiological and psychological effects. Physiologically, clinical massage therapy can increase relaxation, reduce stress and break up toxins in the body. Clinical massage therapy can also improve range of motion, posture and flexibility while decreasing muscle tightness, aches and pains. Psychologically, clinical massage therapy can aid with stress, anxiety and depression.

What are the benefits of essentials oils?
Essential oils are liquids derived from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, bushes, herbs and seeds that can be used aromatically, topically and/or internally. During ancient times, essentials oils were used for their medicinal and healing properties. Cinnamon, for example, relieves diarrhea and nausea; counteracts congestion; aids peripheral circulation. Warms the body and enhances digestion, especially the metabolism of fats. Cinnamon also fights fungal infections and is useful for diabetes, weight loss, yeast infection and and uterine hemorrhaging. Lavender alleviates stress and depression and is good for burns, headaches, psoriasis and other skin problems. Peppermint increases stomach acidity and aids in digestion. It slightly anesthetizes mucous membranes and the gastrointestinal tract. It is also useful for chills, colic, diarrhea, headache, heart trouble, indigestion, irritable bowel  syndrome, nausea, poor appetite, rheumatism and spasms.
