Synergy Integrative Health Education
”Synergy” is when two or more things work together in a particularly fruitful way that produces an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects. It can be expressed also as "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. In this case, we are talking about traditional medical care blended with Integrative Health techniques, otherwise known as Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) techniques. These are getting more and more popular and well-known and some of the more progressive hospitals are implementing them now.
Traditional medical care relies a lot on medication, rather than the body’s own healing ability. At Orion Wellness, you will learn how to use all of yourself to help heal your body and mind, reduce your symptoms, and keep yourself well. You will be taught how to do some of the techniques at your sessions at Orion Wellness. Other techniques need to be done by someone skilled in it, such as acupuncture. But you will be educated on how those other techniques can benefit you so that you can make an informed decision whether to use them.
Ellen is a big believer that complementary techniques should be done along with your traditional medical care, but not instead of it. She believes that alternative techniques should be done only when traditional Western medicine has nothing left to offer the person. Ellen teaches just about every client a complementary medical technique that has been very successful in helping many issues, such as pain, stress, cravings, emotional upset, improving physical conditions, and assisting to achieve goals.
Ellen’s goal is to educate as many people as possible about Integrative Health because Western medical care alone is not enough. It typically pays little or no attention to the effect of the mind on healing and health.
Speaking to Groups
Ellen is available to speak at your gathering about the use of Complementary Medicine Techniques, either free of charge or for a small honorarium. Her mission is to reach as many people as possible to educate them about the value of Eastern Medicine in conjunction with Western Medicine.
